Another visit to one of my favourite venue’s – The Grosvenor Pulford, Chester. Laura and John’s wedding day was perfect. Great weather for photographs as I am sure this small selection shows. We tried a few different angles in the gardens and they gave a great alternative to the usual shots we take here. A fantastic couple and I enjoyed capturing their special day for them.
Our local venue! The Lion Quays is just 5 minutes from our home and always a great venue to work at. First of the run of May weddings for us, and another day of dry and bright weather too! A fantastic couple to work with and Richard’s uniform certainly made for some great colour in the photographs! A small selection taken from their wedding day…
The Grosvenor Pulford, Chester is one of our most popular venues and it is also one of my favourites to work at. Martha-Jane and Gareth enjoyed a fantastically sunny day even though it was an April wedding. The gardens, as always, provide the backdrop for some fantastic shots – as does the interior of this beautiful hotel. Here are just a few of the favourites from todays wedding.
Marie and Alex chose Llyndir Hall for the venue for their “car” themed wedding. Both Marie and Alex are big car enthusiasts and their wedding was to show just this!
Even though the day saw some rain, it didn’t dampen the atmosphere of the day and we got some fantastic shots of the couple – and of the cars too!
Here are a couple of our favourites!
Well what a contrast in weather to the last two weddings. The weather today may have been chilly, but the sun was certainly shining for todays wedding at The Grosvenor Pulford Hotel just outside Chester.
Coverage began with the bridal preparations before I left for the Grosvenor Pulford to meet up with Paul. Surprise wedding cars brought Nicola to the venue. The wedding ceremony was perfect, and after signing the register the couple went for a short drive together. With the weather so perfect, on the couples return we took full advantage of the lovely gardens at the hotel. I have used some different processing styles with some of the images and they are fantastic! Just what I wanted to achieve. The interior of the hotel is such a great place to take shots of the couple, we didn’t want to miss out on these. After the family and group shots we moved on to the speeches. Such a great atmosphere with ”monkey” making a guest appearance! After a short break it was the evening reception – casual shots of guests enjoying the party atmosphere before the first dance concluded the coverage for the day. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Lloyd, I will see you on your return from honeymoon.
A few of my favourites from Nicola & Pauls special day.
The second day of the heaviest snow fall for 50 years. Todays wedding was in Shrewsbury – whilst a phone call from the bride saying that the snow was not too bad in Shrewsbury, she knew how bad it was from Chirk to Oswestry and suggested we skip the bridal preps and just travel safely to the hotel. We agreed this was the best course of action and I assured Becky that we would ensure we got all the images of the flowers, rings etc at the hotel during the day.
Armed once again with snow shovel and snow boots I left early for the difficult drive. Once I arrived at the hotel, a very warm welcome awaited me from the staff. I met up with Scott for some shots before Rebecca arrived.
The ceremony was beautiful, in the conservatory with the snow starting to come down a little more than earlier. Rebecca and Scott braved the cold and blizzard conditions which were now upon us, for a couple of shots outside before once again we got creative in the bridal suite for those romantic shots. They were fantastic! Using natural lighting and the full window and four poster as props, we got some great images to use in their album.
Family and groups shots were taken in another part of the conservatory rooms at The Wroxeter Hotel, before we captured the cutting of the cake.
Onto the meal and speeches where Scott sang a song for his new bride.
A short break before the evening reception which included a fantastic band. The first dance was captured before I left the newly weds partying on into the late evening with their guests.
Congratulations Rebecca and Scott – looking forward to meeting up again soon with your wedding album.
Todays weather was the heaviest snow fall for 50 years. Llangollen being one of the worst affected areas – todays wedding was going to be a challenge.
Due to the cars not being able to pick up the bride, decisions were made to just ensure everyone got to the hotel and the day would begin from then. Equipped with snow shovel and boots I made my way to Llangollen where I met Sean. Time for a few shots before waiting for the bride and bridesmaids to arrive.
I met Alison outside for a couple of shots before getting ready to capture the ceremony. Luckily the registras – who had travelled from Ruthin – had also been able to make it in this heavy snow.
The ceremony was perfect, and the shots of signing the register had a beautiful snow covered Llangollen as the backdrop. As it was impossible to go outside, the group shots were taken in front of the fireplace. We then made creative use of the bridal suite for some romantic shots of the couple – we captured them perfectly with the snow still coming down fast outside.
On to the speeches and then a break before the evening reception. The shots of the first dance were fantastic and Sean surprised his new wife with a birthday cake.
It may have been a cold and snowy day, but the family and friends shared in the warmth of Alison and Sean special day. It will certainly be one wedding I will never forget!
Congratulations Alison and Sean – looking forward to designing your album for you.
A fabulous wintery wedding at Llyndir Hall Hotel!
The second heavy snow in January came the evening before Emma and Julian’s wedding. The grounds of Llyndir Hall looked amazing for the wedding photographs and both Emma and Julian were brilliant braving the cold to get some fantastic shots outdoors – as too were the guests!
I am sure you agree the couple look absolutely stunning!

What a fantastic way to end our wedding season in 2012 with this fantastic couple and their beautiful wedding at Thornton Hall, Wirral between Christmas and New Year!
The weather held up for the entire day, and the coverage started at Vicky and Matt’s home with the bridal preparations. Off to Flint Mountain and St Thomas’ Church to meet up with the groom and await the arrival of Vicky. We got some great shots in the Church grounds before heading to the gates to capture the cars arriving. A couple of shots of Vicky and her Dad concluded the pre ceremony coverage and we all headed indoors for the vows and exchange of rings. The ceremony was perfect – the church was extremely well lit and the shots turned out amazing. As the light was not going to be in our favour today, we headed straight to Thornton Hall to ensure we captured some romantic shots in the grounds before the evening darkness. Vicky and Matt were brilliant and the shots went perfectly. Some more romantic shots around this lovely hotel and then on to the all important family and guest shots, which looked great with the Christmas tree as a backdrop for this Christmas Wedding. The speeches were humorous and sentimental and had everyone laughing or reaching for a handkerchief – Vicky’s Dad gave a heartfelt speech and the comedy was provided by Matt’s best man. The evening reception and first dance concluded today’s wedding and I left everyone celebrating into the night. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Lewis, looking forward to designing your album in the New Year for you.
