Oddfellows Wedding Photography - Chester - Jill and Chris
Chris and Jill's simply amazing Chester wedding day
Chris and Jill are the type of people you instantly click with; you quickly feel like you are in the company of friends and their Oddfellows Wedding was a joy to be part of.
The morning of their wedding, while I was walking through the familiar streets of Chester towards the Oddfellows apartments where Jill and Chris were spending their mornings, I bumped into Jake Foden, who was providing their videography. I’ve worked with Jake before when I photographed Laura and Sean’s Belle Epoque wedding a couple of years ago and it was great to work alongside side him again.
The Oddfellows apartments are incredible. Full of charm and quirky Chester style. A perfect setting for the morning preparations. The place was buzzing with Jill’s young bridesmaids and groomsmen while Jill maintained a level of calm during her hair and make-up.
Chris was conveniently in the apartment opposite, so we popped over and spent some time with him and the other boys while they tucked into bacon sandwiches before getting suited and booted.
Chester Town Hall Ceremony
This was my first time at Chester Town Hall. It is situated right in the heart of Chester. The ceremony room is a perfect combination of beautiful architecture and masses of light provided by the huge windows and so was a joy to photograph.
After the ceremony a number of the wedding guests hopped on an open top bus for a tour around the city on route to the reception.
Oddfellows Wedding Reception
I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy Oddfellows Wedding Photography twice before. One of my absolute favourite northwest wedding venues. Packed with character and in a perfect location. So many photo opportunities within just a few yards of the venue, which we took full advantage of, steeling Jill and Chris away for just a few minutes. A chance for them to have a little quiet time and to capture some relaxed shots of just the two of them.
The rest of the afternoon was full of laughs, emotional speeches, including a heartfelt song written and performed by Chris to his new wife, and was topped off with some more amazing live music to get the evening party really going.
Here are just a handful of images from Chris and Jill’s amazing Oddfellows Wedding Photography. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed their day and their fantastic company!
