Amy & Andy Wedding Ceremony in Chester

Being local to the Double Tree Hilton Chester made this beautiful and emotional wedding a dream to capture as I knew the lay of the land and could get started early and finish late to make sure every bit of the story was told. We started the day with a walk around the venues grounds to film some location shots. We also sent the drone up in the air to video and photograph the building and grounds. Drone filming is standard in all our film packages and we are licensed drone pilots. This means we are able to film at most venues across Cheshire, Lancashire, and North Wales. Both the bridal party and groom's men chose to get ready at the Double Tree Hotel so I went to see the beautiful bride Amy who was relaxing with her bridesmaids having her hair and make up done. They were all drinking champagne and laughing so I was able to video some lovely shots and capture some gorgeous photographs of everyone having a great time. The groom Andy was getting ready at the other side of the hotel where the 2nd photographer and videographer was capturing shots of the groom getting dressed in his military uniform. Once ready Andy moved down stairs to greet his wedding guests as they started to arrive. The guests were able to go wait in the bar area and get a drink before moving into the ceremony room. The wedding ceremony room features a long aisle, bare brick walls with arched windows and exposed timber roof with lights that make for amazing photographs. The groom and registrar were both fitted with wireless microphones to ensure that we had clear audio of the bride and groom saying their wedding vows. With the bride now ready in her dress she was able to show her Dad which brought tears to everyone's eyes in the room. After a moment of calm it was time for the walk down the aisle with her lovely bridesmaids going first. Amy looked gorgeous walking down the aisle and Andy was just about able to hold back the tears as he saw Amy in her elegant dress. With the vows said they shared their first married kiss with a large round of applause from all their family and friends.

After the emotional ceremony, the guests moved to a 19th-century glasshouse attached to the 18th-century manor house for drinks. This is a perfect opportunity for me to unobtrusively move around quietly and capture images of the guests relaxing and congratulating the bride and groom as they enjoy some drinks and Canapes. After some drinks, we ventured outside where the bride and groom were greeted with a shower of confetti and a little more time with their guests as the manor house served as a backdrop to this relaxing time. With a good shake, the confetti was off and we went straight into the family photographs and then it was time for a relaxing walk. As a wedding photographer, the weather has its own part to play in the day and Amy & Andy struck lucky which such a glorious day, not too hot and not too cold and we even went for a final stroll around the grounds just as gold hour hit, it was timed perfectly and created a few more stunning images to finish off their already beautiful album. Our filming and photography philosophy is to be as unobtrusive and natural as possible, we like to let the day unfold organically, with little fuss or interference from us. It was soon time for the newlyweds to head back to the wedding guests and have their walk in for the wedding breakfast with cheering from their family and friends.

After the guests enjoyed the wedding breakfast with some lovely speeches all the wedding party headed to the bar and some guests took this time to check into the Hotels accommodation while other wedding guests had teas and Coffees. We once again took the bride and groom outside to take a few photographs in the dark with sparklers all around. Once the Band is all set up with the sparkly dance floor with fairy light backdrops it was time for drinks in hands and the cutting of the wedding cake with all the wedding guests gathered around. With the photographs of the cake cutting its time for the newlyweds to hit the dance floor for their first dance. We film this with one camera up high to video over guests heads and with the other camera we are on the dance floor capturing the reactions and dance moves of the happy couple and family & friends. We like to ensure that every film is unique as we know the family will revisit it again and again. It was my pleasure to be able to photograph and film this gorgeous day for such a lovely couple.





Wedding Photography

Our ethos is to film and photograph in a natural, unobtrusive way, letting the story of each Special Day unfold. We started with a pre-wedding shoot on a beach on the Liverpool coastline prior to the big day to break the ice so the photos on the day would be more relaxed. On the day itself, My team and I captured both photo and film of the entire day, both shot in a relaxed unobtrusive style which complemented each other perfectly. Amy & Andy wanted natural images of the day which is what we specialise in so with lots of careful timing, some skill, and a bit of luck we were able to capture the images below and everyone has a good time along the way.

​Congratulations to Amy & Andy on their wedding, and thank you for inviting us to play a small part in your Big Day.
