Cheshire Wedding [A Beautiful, Intimate Ceremony]

Wedding Photography Nantwich Cheshire - Who? Where?

Rachel & Stephen’s Wedding was originally intended to take place in front of lots of family & friends at St Mary’s Church in Nantwich, and then onto a wedding reception and party at Nantwich Football Club. But unfortunately, Covid-19 put paid to those original plans! However, Rachel & Stephen were determined nothing was going to prevent them getting married, not even a pandemic could stop them!

The wedding plan...

Instead of the large affair, which was originally planned, it was a small, intimate wedding, still at St Mary’s Church, but with just 30 guests and then instead of the wedding breakfast and party, it was to the The Crown Hotel in Nantwich for a meal and drinks.

Rachel arrived early to the Church, but that didn't matter, as it meant she was able to spend a little more time with her father in the 1948 Black & Ivory Bentley from Barry and Barry Classic Cars while she waited for Stephen and his best man to arrive!

The groom and his best man

With the groom arriving a little later than anticipated, unfortunately we were unable to capture the usual shots of him and the bestman outside of the Church before the ceremony, but we did manage a couple of photos of Stephen inside the Church. He looked very dapper indeed, wearing his bespoke handmade suit from Papa’s Tailoring! We were also able to capture some more photos of the groom and bestman outside the Church, after the ceremony too!

The bride's stunning appearance!

The moment Rachel stepped out of the car, we could see how stunning her wedding dress was, she looked a million dollars! The three bridesmaids also looked stunning in their pretty blue dresses, which were complimented by the Mother of the Bride’s lovely blue outfit too!

The special moments...

Facemasks were required in church, but could be dispensed of once outside.  The only ones to escape mask free, were the bride, bride’s father, groom, vicar and at times, the bridesmaids.  Hand sanitiser was available on entry and exit to the church, which meant everyone felt safe and comfortable whilst inside.

The wedding was just perfect, the current unforeseen circumstances made it a little more intimate than originally planned, but that seemed to make it even more special, and it still had it all -  the ceremony, the flowers, the confetti and all the emotion of a big wedding, but shared with a select thirty friends and family!  The only thing missing from a usual church ceremony, were the hymns, as singing breaks Covid19 regulations, but that didn’t matter at all, as we’re sure that everyone who attended, genuinely enjoyed the ceremony and it was a huge pleasure seeing Stephen & Rachel become Mr & Mrs Sherriff!

Congratulations again, to them both!

Photography in Cheshire [A Wedding Day We Will Remember Forever]

Louise and Gary had been friends for sometime, when in January 2017, Louise was sadly diagnosed with cancer, but by the following June, she had the good news that she’d beaten the disease.  It was then, that Louise and Gary’s friendship grew, which later developed into the loving relationship they have today.  Louise, referring to her illness and treatment, told us “I couldn’t have done any of it without Gary!”

Earlier this year, on 4th January, Louise contacted us, asking if we were free on 25th October to photograph their wedding and she went on to book our top of the range package. Not many weeks later, on 3rd February, brave Louise contacted us again to say that she’d had some dreadful news and she’d been diagnosed with secondary lung cancer!  Despite being given a terminal diagnosis, Louise was adamant to walk down the aisle to marry the love of her life!  They really wanted to prove their love for each other, but obviously time was no longer on their side, so they brought their wedding forward to 1st March 2020.

We were photographing a wedding until 9pm the day before in Kent, but managed to travel the 300 miles back to the Cheshire countryside, in time to capture Louise’s bridal-prep, which took place in The Luxury Dressing Suite at their dream venue Wrenbury Hall, near Nantwich.

Gary is self-employed and owns his own company Rainbow Blinds.  It was through Gary’s hard work that he was able to give Louise, the wedding day, which lot of girls only ever dream of, and it was for this reason, that Louise wanted Gary’s Work Van to feature in the wedding!

As family and friends filled the ceremony room, a nervous Gary waited for his best friend to appear!  Gary struggled to hold back the tears, but at the same time, he looked so unbelievably happy, as he saw that first glance of his beautiful bride.

Louise & Gary’s wedding was arranged in just three weeks, although it appeared that planning and preparation had been ongoing for years.  Everything was just perfect!

Louise had forewarned us, there would understandably be lots of tears, which there was, but there was also lots of happiness too! It was a bittersweet day, with lots of family and friends sharing their special moment, one which we felt very honoured to be part of!

The bride and groom sat down during the ceremony, and saying their vows proved to be the hardest part of the day for both of them, emotion ran high, tears flowed freely within the room.  Even the registrars and us as photographers were moved to tears!

Following the ceremony, we were able to take some lovely photos of the bride and groom along with their guests, and then it was onto the wedding breakfast in the glamourous Orangerie. Once the bride and groom had been welcomed as Mr & Mrs Beamon, we left the wedding party for them to enjoy their food and relax without any interruptions.

It was at this point that Neil, the Events Manager informed us of a surprise they had in store for the bride.  Louise really wanted Singing Waiters to be a part of their wedding, but the cost was a little more than their budget would allow, so although disappointed, Louise decided it was something they could do without. Davinia the MD of Wrenbury Hall, who was aware of Louise’s disappointment, arranged for Undercover Artists Singing Waiters to be in attendance.  Gary knew all about it, but it was a complete surprise for Louise, and the look on her face said it all!  She literally glowed during their entertainment, it seemed to really uplift her spirits and her smile was radiant the whole way through!

Wrenbury Hall’s team of staff were amazing, they certainly made the day for Louise & Gary!  Peter the Toast Master, Neil the Events Manager, along with the waiters and waitresses, all joined in the dancing and fun, as Louise and Gary smiled and laughed the whole way through!

Louise works for Blue Bell in Crewe, and they had arranged for another surprise during the evening. The UK Firework Company, put on a fabulous firework display, which proved a perfect romantic photo opportunity. Thanks must go to Louise’s bridesmaid Darrelle, who also works for Blue Bell, as she was heavily involved with organising this wonderful surprise.

Seeing Louise & Gary together is like watching a romantic movie, there’s so much love and tenderness between them. Their inner strength has proved incredible, it’s obvious they are perfect soulmates for each other!

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Louise & Gary for choosing us as their wedding photographers and including us in their special day.  We'd also thank Davinia and her dedicated team at Wrenbury Hall for making us so welcome, we thoroughly recommend their complete bespoke service, it really is second to none!

We obviously photograph many weddings, all unique in their own way, but this is one which will stay in our hearts forever!
