A beautiful real life wedding at Chester’s Rowton Hall

Back in the summer I was honoured to shoot the wedding of Hannah and Chris, who got married at St James’ Church, Christleton, Cheshire, which is just on the outskirts of Chester. We then headed to the gorgeous Rowton Hall in Chester for the wedding reception and evening party. I’m excited to share these lovely images with you: Rowton Hall is a bit of a hidden gem in Cheshire and made the perfect backdrop for some fantastic wedding photography.

Hannah and Chris’s wedding morning

My day began when I joined Hannah and her bridal party at the family home for bridal prep. It’s always such a pleasure to be invited to someone’s home on such an exciting morning, and I had a great time capturing images of Hannah with her sister and friends getting pampered, with hair and make up by The Bridal Beauty Company.

I stayed until Hannah had slipped into her gorgeous dress from My Funny Valentine, helped by her sister before the big reveal to her dad: a part of the day that I always love!

Terri Jarvis Photography was second shooting that day and got shots of the boys at St James’ Church she met Chris along with his groomsmen who were waiting excitedly for the bride to arrive and the big day to really begin.

The church ceremony was full of love and emotion- as these photos of Chris prove!

We then captured some brilliant confetti shots before heading on to Rowton Hall, Chester for the wedding reception.

Rowton Hall, Chester, Cheshire

Rowton Hall is an historic Georgian Manor House set amidst 8-acres of tranquil grounds and gardens and yet just minutes away from the Roman City of Chester.

Rowton Hall is the perfect venue for anyone wanting to get married amongst the beautiful Cheshire countryside. The Hall is nestled in 8-acres of gardens and manicured grounds, and Hannah and Chris took full advantage of the stunning grounds as the ideal place to welcome their guests to the venue.  The guests enjoyed arrival drinks on the lawns, and enjoyed playing lots of garden games in the sunshine. We also captured some great group shots, as well as some wedding photography of Hannah and Chris enjoying their first bit of time alone as man and wife.

Then it was time to head inside for the wedding reception. Rowton Hall has some beautiful rooms characterised by period features and elegant décor. The decadent chandeliers, original feature fireplaces, oak staircase and large garden view windows are a wedding photographer’s dream!

I then managed to sneak Hannah and Chris away for some couple’s wedding photography outside in the twilight: I love the romantic images we captured during this little shoot.

We then went back inside the venue for the evening party where everyone had a fantastic time dancing to music by The Funtime Frankies. I captured some images of the happy couple cutting the cake, enjoying their first dance, and having a wonderful time with their friends and family- which is just how every wedding day should be!
