St John’s the Evangelist wedding, Alvanley

Cheshire wedding bride and groom - contemporary bridal image

In the first of what was due to be a weekend of back to back second shooting for Liam, of CG Weddings, the Saturday saw us travelling the short distance from Chester to Helsby and then on to Alvanley for the wedding service and reception of Darren and Jane.

An early start meant that Liam and I met up with Darren and his best man over at Darren’s house, in Helsby. A quick breakfast, stocking up of essential tipples for the groom and some military quality ironing ticked off the list, we headed on over to a nearby cottage to meet up with Jane and her mum.

A quick blast up the hills of the Cheshire Gap took us to the lovely little village of Alvanley and the St John’s the Evangelist Church. It’s a beautiful church set on the edge of fields, which immediately grabbed Liam and my eyes as a perfect backdrop for some great bride and groom shots after the ceremony. A coach soon pulled up and unloaded the Brymbo Male Voice choir in readiness for them providing the musical accompaniment to the wedding ceremony. They certainly made a great addition to the ceremony and something I’d recommend to anyone wanting to add a genuine Welsh aspect to their church wedding.

After the ceremony it was a quick walk across the road to enjoy aperitifs at the White Lion Inn. Darren and Jane were great sports in venturing into the fields for the bridal shots, making full use of the moody skies, which brought something to the photographs but did not spoil the wedding day by actually raining.

After the guests enjoyed their wedding breakfast, it was time for us to cover a moving set of speeches from Jane’s brother and Darren.

Some of my favourites from the day are shown below. If you are thinking of wedding photography at Alvanley, then please get in touch.
