Carden Park Wedding Photographer
My first time as a Carden Park wedding photographer was a big deal for me for two reasons. Firstly, I was photographing a bride who I knew well as I used to work alongside Bec for a few years before I became a wedding photographer. The second reason I was excited was because this was my 100th wedding since turning pro!
Carden Park is a few miles outside of Chester and is a lovely venue for a wedding, with gorgeous gardens outside the main hotel and the option of having an outdoor ceremony. The September weather was kind to Bec and Paul and they decided to have their service outside in the late summer sun. Before the service, I spent a couple of hours with Bec and her bridesmaids as they had ‘one or two’ glasses of fizz. Things got a little more serious when Bec put her dress on and I made my way down to see Paul waiting for his bride. As Bex made her way up the aisle, it all got quite emotional for Paul before a service full of smiles (and one or two more tears).
The bonus of having an outdoor service is that the confetti can be thrown as Bec and Paul walked back down the aisle before an outdoor reception with all their friends and family. I borrowed Bec and Paul for 20 minutes of couples photos and we couldn’t resist a couple of daft photos on the crazy golf course, where Bec proved she certainly doesn’t have any of the golf skills of her new husband, who too great pride in telling me about his fantastic round on the Carden Park 18 hole course the day before the wedding.
As I knew a few of the guests Bec and Paul kindly gave me a seat for the wedding breakfast (cheers guys) before the speeches. Once again, there was a beautiful sunset over the golf course and we spent a few minutes grabbing a few extra couple photos to make the most of the amazing views before Bec and Paul kicked off the night celebrations with their first dance. I thoroughly enjoyed my day as a Carden Park wedding photographer. If you’re getting married at Carden Park please get in touch to chat about your day!
