Andy and Anna | Edgar House | Chester

I met Andy over three years ago when he and Anna lived next door to a friend of mine in Hoole. We would occasionally escape to the pub to ‘watch the football’. When our mutual friend moved house, we lost touch but when we bumped into each other at said friends babies naming ceremony, which I was shooting for him, Andy and Anna asked me whether I would be free to photograph their wedding. They were prepared to take a chance on me and let me shoot a wedding solo for the first time. I was elated, if a little nervous.

When the day came, the weeks glorious sunshine subsided and the dark clouds overhead looked ominous. We were however lucky enough to get some pockets of sunshine at just the right times.

I spent the morning with Anna and her family before meeting Andy and his Irish contingent in the pub for brunch. After a beautifully intimate service held at Chester Registry office the wedding party split in two. Half boarded the vintage bus provided, where as the rest followed the bride and groom for a stroll through Chester’s iconic rows before meeting at Edgar House, a hidden gem tucked into the cities Roman walls.

Edgar house provided excuisite views of the river despite the rain as the guests sheltered under the tent. The wedding party were in fine form, dancing away to the live music and enjoying the afternoon tea. The evening was held at a really special place for the bride and groom. Chester Rugby Club is where they met.

Johnny and Nadia | Oh Me Oh My | Liverpool

Johnny and Nadias wedding in Liverpool was great fun and I really enjoyed shooting it alongside Sarah from Sands Photography. I met up with Sarah at Liverpool Town Hall after she had spent the morning with the bride and her bridesmaids. It was my first time in the building and I was blown away by the grandure of the state rooms.

After a really beautiful service I took the lead for the first time on the posed and group shots outside the hall. Jonny and Nadia’s wedding party were so much fun and we got the pictures done in a timely fashion despite the ever-present danger from the busy traffic of Dale Street.

The reception was just a 2 minute stroll from the Town Hall, so we took the opportunity to capture some images of the happy couple making their way down to Oh Me Oh My. The iconic ‘Three Graces” made for an impressive backdrop that screams Liverpool and Jonny and Nadia were so easy to work with. They were so obviously having the time of their lives that capturing great photos of their special day was a delight.

Inside Oh Me Oh My (Liverpool best kept secret) the Wedding Party awaited us. The venue is a wonderfully relaxed space and makes for a great spot for a City Centre wedding. After the speeches, the party went on late into the night. Sarah stayed to capture the evenings festivities.
