Chester Wedding Photography• Hayley & Phil 15.09.2018

 

 

It's the first time I've shot a wedding at Carden Park Hotel and Spa and it was an absolute scorching hot day. I was delighted to have been asked to photography Hayley and Phil's wedding, they are a great couple, chilled and relaxed but really funny and just bounce off each other so well. The day started with Hayley and the Bridesmaids getting ready at the hotel, the dresses hanging up in the window, I love this kind of shot with the sunlight flooding through the window because it really brings out the lace detail in the dress. Phil was also at the hotel getting ready which meant I had chance to get some Groom's prep shots too, not something I get to do very often and it was nice to shoot something a bit different. The lads were all in a relaxed mood having taken advantage of the Golf courses the day before, they'd even brought along a Playstion 4 for a few games of FIFA in the hotel room. Heading back to Hayley and the Bridesmaids for the final bit of prep, the girls looking gorgeous thanks to The Hair Room, on-site at Carden Park and Rachel Ross Makeup. Hayley looked stunning wearing a Randy Fenoli wedding gown from Natalie Ann Brides in Liverpool, while the Bridesmaids wore dresses from Debenhams Bridal Collection.

As I said earlier, it really was a scorching hot day and meant the Bride and Groom were able to opt for an outdoor Gazeebo Wedding in the gardens of Carden Park with stunning views overlooking one of the Golf Courses. It has quickly become one of my favourite venues to shoot at and I'd love to go back there again soon, so if you're getting married here or at another wedding venue, let's have a chat about your special day so please get in touch.

Hayley went with a simple yet stunning and classically beautiful rose and gypsophila bouquet, perfectly complimented by the Bridesmaids gypsophila bouquets from the talented Meraki Floral Designs, not to mention the buttonholes and floral arrangement setting off the top table perfectly.

After we'd been around the grounds and onto the golf course in a chauffeured golf buggy for a few more relaxed portrait shots and to give the newlyweds a bit of time together we headed back inside for the wedding breakfast and for some funny and emotional speeches before the rest of the day continued with Hayley and Phil cutting the amazing wedding cake by Villa Nova Cakes and the guests joining them after the first dance and celebrating long into the night....

Thank you Mr & Mrs Chandler for letting me be a part of your day, best wishes for the future.
