I am delighted to share some fabulous pictures from Mark and Rachel’s Tipi Tent Wedding at Trafford Hall in Chester!
From the minute I met Mark and Rachel I could see how smitten they were and their giddiness and excitement of their upcoming Tipi Tent wedding was infectious. I too couldn’t help but get excited about their special day.
Rachel later told me that her Dad was a Wedding Photographer and that Mark very much enjoyed photography too. Yikes, capturing a wedding day when the Father of the Bride is a Wedding Photographer is quite an honour.
For me the day started with a warm welcome at the bridal home where Rachel was getting ready with all her Bridesmaids. Sarah Dunn Make-up and Kreative Hairdressing were there to make the girls look their very best. I enjoyed capturing the excitement and all those little details Rachel had worked so hard on to make the day special. Meanwhile Duco was with the Boys.
Mark & Rachel got married at St Michael’s Church in Saltney and the service was held by Rachel’s Granddad which made it very special and personal. When we arrived at the Church it was raining and continued to rain until we arrived at Trafford Hall. They say a little bit of rain is lucky; and there was lots of umbrellas and smiling faces, so it didn’t matter.
The reception was held at Trafford Hall which is a little gem located in Mickle Trafford just outside Chester and has the perfect grounds for a Tipi Tent Wedding. The grounds are stunning and so pretty especially at this time of the year. Leanne and the team are really friendly and make sure your every need is catered for.
John from Chester Wedding cars delivered our lovely couple to the venue in style and was very accommodating to ensure we got some beautiful images of them coming down the lane towards Trafford Hall.
Lots of guests and eager fellow photographers awaited the arrival of the happy couple.Here’s Rachel with her Dad next to her beloved GTI affectionately named “Dub!”
The Tipi Tent and Trafford Hall looked stunning and all the little details provided by Sweet Pea and Ivy made it sparkle. It was lovely to capture some lovely natural images of Rachel and Mark within the beautiful grounds of Trafford Hall.
Family and loved ones was so important to Rachel and Mark so for them it was important to have some group photos but captured in a natural style as well as some natural spontaneous images in the speeches.
The speeches were heart moving as well as providing lots of laughter. I even got a mention from Rachel’s Dad (Photographer) who said the photo of Mark and Rachel that I captured on their Engagement Shoot was his favourite one of them together. Wow! To be mentioned during the speeches on such as their momentous day is so heart-warming and it simply doesn’t get any better than this. Thank you so much Mr Stanley.
The day concluded for us by capturing the cutting of the cake followed by a full dance floor with everyone enjoying the music and the atmosphere.
Duco and I thoroughly enjoyed capturing Mark and Rachel’s Wedding Day. Such a lovely couple who deserve all the best and happiness for the future. We wish this lovely couple all the very best for the future.
