Chester Wedding Photographer
Not everyone has the opportunity to get married at Chester Cathedral. Ed and Jenny had the privilege of being linked to the Cathedral for many reasons.
They had one of the longest and most beautiful ceremonies I have ever witnessed. And the music had a lot to do with it. Ed, as the choir’s music teacher, sang heavenly among the pupils for some parts of the ceremony.
The whole day took place at The Cathedral, including the wedding breakfast and the evening party! What an amazing venue.
If one thing they had clear about the photography on their wedding day, it was the fact that they wanted to enjoy their family and friends as much as they could, without being interrupted or directed by the photographer. The moment they said so, it felt like music to my ears, as nothing could make my job better than a couple who values their time and moments with their family and the people they love. So here it is how it looked the story of their wedding day, as it happened and just like it felt.

Now that we are about to start a new wedding season, I wanted to share a very special wedding from last summer, just to bring a little bit of a warm breeze to these cold days.
As a destination wedding photographer, it was a real privilege to join Hayley and Dave for their little wedding in France. They wanted a very chilled, relaxed and intimate wedding, so they chose being surrounded just by a bunch of very good friends and close family in this lovely hidden gem in the heart of Gascony’s countryside.
For more than eight centuries the history of Gascony and the founder of the Chateau de Malliac have been linked. It is situated in the south of beautiful Dordogne where the founder and his descendants, having settled in the southwest of France in the 12th century, left an indelible mark on the region throughout the four succeeding centuries. They were notably Crusaders or Consuls and actively participated in the construction of the villages’ fortified manor (the oldest in Gascony). They are among key figures locally to whom we have to thank for today’s legacy of fortified castles, cathedrals and colourful legends.
Later, in the 16th century, one of the descendants it is said, initiated his entourage into the rituals of Armagnac, one of the first eau-de-vie in France. At the beginning of the 20th century, the family of the present owner, bought this domain and developed its own brand of Armagnac, which became a landmark in French gastronomy.
The vineyard produces for the Chateau a white and a red Gascony wine which is reserved exclusively for the visitors (well, and the photographer 😉 ).
