Danny and Jo's Wedding at Oddfellows

Shooting a wedding in the middle of a town with no outside space is not normally an enticing prospect but when I had the opportunity to shoot Danny and Jo's at Oddfellows in Chester I jumped at the chance. It's a cool, quirky place with great light streaming in through the tall Georgian windows on the front of the building.
The wedding took place in two rooms upstairs - the ceremony/breakfast room and the the bar (with small roof terrace) - and was more than comfortable for the 80 or so guests. There are loads of interesting little corners throughout the place which lend themselves to some characterful photography. The staff were fantastic at moving people from one room to another whilst things were turned round and the Master of Ceremonies kept everything running to exact time without it seeming too regimented.
I hope the images reflect the fun, happy and stylish nature of the day - I had a blast (particularly when the icing models of the Bride and Groom took a dive off the top of the cake just before the ceremony)!

A quick look at this weekends weddings

Two very different weddings this weekend - but both with the same result (two people who love each other got married!). The first was at Dodmore House, a great venue in the heart of Northamptonshire with beautiful sandstone farm buildings and grounds to mingle. The second was at Oddfellows, a trendy bar in the centre of Chester, which has two large upstairs rooms and a bar terrace. Both weddings were very different but equally enjoyable. Here's a sneaky peek...
