Holy Ascension Church Wedding

Sun. Lakes, Tipi’s and a former detective turned Reverend. Do you need anything more for a wedding? Laura and Gareth’s day had all of this and more for thier Chester Lakes wedding photography. I arrived and met up with Laura for the bridal prep. After the prep photos were in the bag, I went off to the Holy Ascension Church in Upton to meet Gareth and the Reverend David Sayle. Rev. Sayle was very relaxed about wedding photography, givinge me unrestricted access to his church which was much appreciated. It turned out that we were both former police officers with Rev. Sayle being a detective in Merseyside Police before his very dramatic career change.

The wedding service was followed by easily the best confetti explosion of the year and we then made our way over to Chester Lakes for Laura and Gareth’s reception. They’d decided to have Tipi’s which was a first for me and they certainly look pretty cool for a wedding reception, totally different to anything I’ve worked in before. With glorious sunshine I got plenty of opportunity for documentary photos whilst the guests enjoyed the weather and Prosecco. Laura and Gareth joined me for 20 minutes for their Chester Lakes wedding photography before their fantastic speeches. After the wedding breakfast I took the bridesmaids, best men and ushers out for some informal, fun, groups photos before the first dance, which could well be my best first dance images of the year so far!

So here’s Laura and Gareth’s Chester Lakes wedding photography, music by Florence and The Machine, photos by me…
