I am behind with my blog (again!!!) after being away on holiday at the start of the month and having a really busy last couple of weeks, so I will do my best to get back on track!

Earlier in the month, I headed up to my old stomping ground of Chester, for Vicky and James’ wedding in Christleton Church and the Macdonald Portal Golf Club and Spa.

When I arrived at Vicky’s parents’ house to take some shots of everyone getting ready, it was surprisingly calm and Vicky, her Mum, Dad and bridesmaids even had time for a civilised lunch with their glasses of champagne before putting the final touches to their preparations. Bride and Grooms to be take note – Marks and Spencer trays of prepared nibbles are clearly the way forward for this type of occasion!

Christleton Church is a particularly beautiful old building, made of rich red Cheshire stone and it made a lovely backdrop for some shots of James with his best man and ushers.

During the ceremony, one of Vicky’s bridesmaids, Lauren, played the flute (quite a tricky task if you have just watched one of your best friends get married!) and Vicky and James both looked over the moon as they headed back down the aisle.

We took a few photographs outside the church and then drove over to the hotel, where Vicky and James were met with champagne and their own golf buggy! As the clouds and wind were brewing up for a storm, we headed off around the golf course straight away for some shots of Vicky and James together,including some fantastic photographs in the old ruins and then went back inside for Vicky and James to greet their guests and enjoy some more champagne.

Here are a few shots from their day:
