So I have finally got round to blogging about this amazing wedding that I photographed in Chester back in May! I first met Aidan and Jayne at the Chester wedding fayre last year, they were struggling to find a photographer who could cover their special wedding that would take place over two days at a reasonable price. As this wedding sounded so amazing and fun I sorted these guys out so that they could have gorgeous photos without breaking the bank for two days of photography and so I could be a part of this very exciting wedding! Even though I am a Liverpool Wedding Photographer I do travel all over the North West.

The Wedding

Aidan and Jayne LOVE surprises and surprising others so they planned their wedding to be a huge surprise for their family and friends. They got married on the 26th of May 2017 at Chester Registry office with a few close relatives and friends. The wedding preparations began at home where Jayne and her bridesmaids were getting ready for the big day. The ceremony was very intimate and lovely. Jayne is originally from Australia and her family watched the ceremony via Skype, which meant so much to Jayne that they were there in some way <3

After the ceremony we drove to the river that runs through Chester so that we could get some couple photos, but we had to be SO sneaky about this in case we saw anyone who knew Aidan and Jayne, remember only a few people knew that they had gotten married! Luckily, we didn’t bump into any of their family or friends and we got some gorgeous photos in the May sunshine. After this we headed over to The Architect for some lovely lunch and photos in the gorgeous gardens!

The Surprise Party

The next day I travelled from Liverpool to Aidan and Jayne’s house for an ‘engagement’ party in their back garden that they had invited all of their family and friends to. The garden was decorated beautifully and they had every detail down to a T. I had to pretend to be an old friend with a camera for a bit until after an hour or so when Aidan walked onto the raised decking in his wedding suit and the best men joined him. People did not know what was happening and their faces began to show utter shock and excitement, there were even a few tears! Then the gorgeous bride walked down the side of the house with her bridesmaids and people began to lose it – ‘OMG THEY ARE GETTING MARRIED NOW!!!’ I am so glad that they hired me to make sure that all of these reactions were captured for them to remember forever!

I felt so welcome at this wedding as everyone was beyond lovely and went out of their way to be kind to me which I really appreciate, thank you Aidan and Jayne for letting me a part of your very special surprise wedding!! šŸ˜€
