Samantha & Jamie's
Wedding photography at Oddfellows Chester
They say some of the best relationships begin as friends. I love Samantha and Jamie's story about how how they were friends for many years before they became a couple. From first meeting them I knew they were going to be amazing to work with, we discussed the wedding, the super cool venue choice and how their new puppy was just as crazy as our new puppy! Samantha and Jamie's family also includes two children who are completely adored - Sienna and Jenson who I knew were going to play such a big part of their big day too.
So fast forward a year and hello Wedding day! Oddfellows is a Luxury boutique Hotel set in the heart of Chester. I am a huge fan of Alice in Wonderland and this whole place was like actually being there. Its both whimsical and unique. Each room at Oddfellows is charming in its own way, its pretty much a wedding photographers dream.
Its raining! But they say rains lucky don't they?! Good thing is this whole wedding day is in the indoors. Sam's bridal party got prepared at the Oddfellows apartments which again were unique, complete quirky luxury! Her bridesmaids were all lovely girls who looked amazing, the hair and make up artist's work was immense they all looked stunning all day. The bridesmaids were a dressed in a rainbow of pastels, and little Sienna in a special lilac dress. Samantha's dress was a beutiful fitted lace gown with a gorgeous piece of back detail very unique and delicate. Not forgetting the 'SHOES' (of course) sparkling red sole louis Vuitton's which I immediately fell in love with...
The overall feel of the day was relaxed, the guests arrived settled in with drinks, the ceremony was perfect, traditional with some personal touches that involved the children which made it beautifully personal. Speeches again very chilled and entertaining (especially best man), and an extremely touching speech by Jamie who clearly adores Samantha's children. All taking place in the lounge room (the big rabbit feature in here is awesome)
The day ended with a cute family cake cut and the first dance was to James Arthurs 'Say you won't let go'...
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Millington, thank you for choosing me to capture your special day...x
