A Chester Wedding! Dale and Natalie were married at Oddfellows in Chester. Oddfellows is not only one of my favourite city centre hangouts, but it makes an amazing wedding venue! It is a unique, modern and classy bar, restaurant and hotel which regularly plays host to many live acts as well as exclusive weddings in their upstairs area with private terrace.
Natalie, her bridesmaids and mum were getting ready just down the road at Oddfellows apartments. I had never actually been to these before, but wow they are incredible. They continue with the modern and trendy theme throughout.
I was assisted by Neal from Neal Mcveigh Photography throughout the day. We all covered some serious mileage around Chester! I am a Cestrian at heart being born there, and love exploring around the walls, the Grosvenor Park, the River Dee and the Eastgate Clock. Obviously we were going to use all these locations in Dale and Natalie’s wedding photos!
But first…After much laughter and fun during bridal prep, it was a short hop over to Oddfellows where Dale and Natalie said I do. I’m sure both Dale and Natalie were pretty nervous but the nerves weren’t really on display. Just lots of smiles! Myself and Neal captured many candid photos up until the wedding breakfast as well as the most have family photographs. Oddfellows has a unique outdoor bar area which looks so cool and make an awesome backdrop for an alternative wedding photo.
Following the wedding breakfast, it was time to get away from everybody for a little bit so Dale and Natalie could have some time together. Well….Kind of. We went exploring Chester which is a pretty busy city anyway, but when you’ve got 2 photographers and a beautiful white wedding dress, you’re going to attract some attention.
We all had such a amazing, relaxed time whilst out and about. There was 1 or 2 more formalities though. Cutting the cake and first dance. After first dance, Dale and Natalie jumped in a taxi and headed from Oddfellows to Chester city centre. We decided to do a couple of pictures at the Eastgate clock. These are still some of my favourite pictures I’ve ever taken!
Thank you Dale and Natalie for being so awesome. Here are a few of my favourites from your wedding day.
