Ever since meeting Richard and Chris last year, I’ve been really looking forward to photographing their wedding at the Chester Grosvenor. Just as expected, their wedding was a fun-filled affair. The couple celebrated their wedding at the Chester Grosvenor in Cheshire. It was great to be photographing at the Grosvenor again, the Cheshire registrars are just fabulous to work with. I feel lucky to be photographing such an amazing couple in such a beautiful location.
Richard and Chris got ready in a beautiful suite in the Chester Grosvenor. Richard and Chris both had bespoke and unique waistcoats to wear with their suits – they looked great! They and their best men had a really chilled, relaxing time together before the ceremony.
The ceremony was a delightful service amongst close family and friends at Chester Grosvenor, Richard and Chris were in their element.
After the ceremony, Richard and Chris took a quick ride through the streets of Chester and had a ‘mock arrival’ and confetti walk.
During the reception, I captured all the fun as well as a few formal pictures.
Richard and Chris chose to have their speeches before the wedding breakfast. There was two father of the groom speeches, Richard and Chris made a joint speech followed by each of their best men’s speeches. I love the speeches because they are always guaranteed to raise a laugh. I always feel privileged to hear more about the couple.
After the wedding breakfast, Richard and Chris had put on various entertainment for their guests including a magician and a mini casino. Their guests loved this and got really involved.
They were blessed with gorgeous weather so I took advantage of the awesome light and took them for some cool couples portraits around Chester. I love taking couples out in busy centres as its such a buzz being the centre of attention with people congratulating them.
Dance floor antics and violins
The day flew so fast and it was soon time for the cake cutting ceremony and first dance. Richard and Chris wowed their guests with even more unexpected entertainment. They had a violinist lined up to enter the dance floor and play along to dance tunes. It was fascinating and really entertaining, I enjoyed it so much I stayed till the end of her first set.
Richard and Chris were fantastic to spend time with. I had a great day and know they’ll both be very happy.
