 Wedding photography in Cheshire at the Queen Hotel Chester

The Queen Hotel is on City Road, Chester in  Cheshire, just a short drive from Manchester. With my camera bag of prime Canon lenses and plenty of memory cards, to store all the fantastic images I knew this wedding would bring, I set off with my fellow wedding  photographer David Stubbs. We were to meet the bride, Rachel in her suite in The Queen Hotel, which was overlooking the courtyard and the awe-inspiring Baltic Exchange Gardens. A great location for some outdoor unobtrusive wedding photography later in the day.

Wedding photography at Queen Hotel Cheshire does not get better than this!

The blushing bride was with her bridesmaids in her suite on the second floor. On our way to meet her, we ascended The Queen Hotel’s magnificent photogenic staircase. It was a stunning location, with timeless ambiance, to capture Rachel a short time later, descend to the wedding ceremony. A beautiful bride in elegant white lace wedding gown, bathed in the natural light from the roof light combined with the incandescent light from the chandelier.

It was bright and sunny day, no need for high ISO camera settings. Plenty of natural light streaming through the windows to give images life and depth. As the bridesmaids & Maid of Honour assisted Rachel with the bridal preparations for the big day, I photographed in my unobtrusive style without need for posing or to set up shots, just observing not interfering in any way… just natural images. Timeless, and full of emotion for the couple to remember for many years to come. One such image, captured when I spotted the brides elegant wedding gown hang up on named ‘bride’ clothes hanger, nearby a huge ornate mirror.

The Marriage Ceremony and legal formalities outside in the sunshine at Queen Hotel

After the Bride had tied the knot to Ben, her new husband and partner for their life journey together, the wedding champagne began to flow. Along with canape’s from the Queen Hotels kitchen, the guests relaxed outside in the courtyard of The Baltic Exchange Garden. The wedding singer; a solo artist, commenced the wedding entertainment, and the sun shone allowing plenty of  interesting natural light to take frame after frame of unobtrusive wedding photography.

Time to change memory cards and batteries for the evening, in preparation for the wedding speeches, toasts and cutting of the wedding cake. Then, onto the wedding party dancing and celebrating the night away! Often, by now, the guests have forgotten I’m there as as a wedding photographer, they have got used to me being around, and this presents fun, spontaneous opportunities take images amongst the wedding guests, letting their hair down, celebrating the couples special day! At Rachel and Ben’s wedding celebrations, I captured one such fun and spontaneous moment, a favourite image of mine!
