The 2017 wedding season finished for me in a very special way with the wedding of Natalie and Jamie.  It was Nick from leading the day in his most capable and chilled out way with me taking up second shooter duties.

Natalie and Jamie did it their way.  They got married in a very simple early morning service  at Chester Registry Office… with just two witnesses.  After the ceremony, we spent a couple of hours with the newlyweds wandering the city centre and hanging out in a pub.  Then Jamie left Natalie so she could get ready for a second time…. for their humanist service at Chester University.

It was the first wedding that Chester University had ever hosted but Churchill House on the Queen’s Park campus was an amazing wedding venue.  The ceremony was in a room with glass on three sides overlooking the River Dee.  Natalie entered the room to a James Bond theme tune looking amazingly sparkly and elegant – what an entrance.  Jamie’s use of a phone book to reach his new wife for a kiss was a hilarious and endearing touch and their  reenactment of their first web chat had everyone giggling away with them.  The speeches involved audience voting and a quiz and fajitas for dinner went down a treat.   The band was still rocking when I snuck away once I’d got what I needed to…

I don’t think I’ll ever stop feeling so privileged to be part of someone’s wedding day. Hope you enjoy having a look through some of my favourite pictures from the day.
