A gorgeous wedding at The Chester Grosvenor for Katy and Stephen followed by a drinks reception at The Chester Cathedral.
As a preferred supplier of The Chester Grosvenor, I was introduced to Katy and Stephen at one of their Open Days. We clicked (pardom the pun) stright away and then met up a few times before the big day to talk through ideas, the timeline and any group photos they would like.
The big day came round very quickly, as they always do. It was a beautiful relaxed wedding on one of the coldest days of the year but it didn’t stop the smiles. It all started with the Bridal preparations in the luxurious presidential suite where I captured all Katy’s precious little details along with a her very special something blue – a gorgeous deep tailored navy jacket sewn by her Mum especially for the wedding.
After spending time with Katy I popped down stairs to capture guests as they arrive and a few photos of Stephen and his ushers against the fabulous chandelier on the first floor of the Chester Grosvenor.
It was then time for Katy’s Dad to collect her and for me to capture that first look – the first time Dad see’s his daughter all dressed up, looking beautiful and ready to say “I do".
The ceremony was held in the Eaton Suite and reception drinks were held at the Catherdral. I remember running through the high street with Mr D to make sure we were there to capture their arrival. The Catherdral is simply stunning and the location where Katy and Stephen wanted their wedding photos – a mix of raportage, fun and formal photos.
Everyone returned to the comfort of the Chester Grosvenor for their wedding breakfast and speeches. This was followed by a stupendous jazz orchestra!
It really was an honour to capture their day and both Duco and I really appreciate their kind review on google!
“Amanda is a lovely person to work with and a very talented photographer. We booked Amanda for our wedding and met her a few times prior to this. She was always easy to get in touch with, very friendly and made it easy for us to plan the photography around the big day.
The photographs Amanda has taken are the best quality we have ever seen. They have come out beautifully and we could not be happier with the results.
We would recommend Amanda Dantuma Photography to anyone and if we wanted a photographer for another event we would book Amanda straight away."
