Chelsea & Jack Slaters Inn Wedding
Delighted that Chelsea and Jack asked us to cover their Slater’s Country Inn Wedding in Staffordshire.
Chelsea and Jack had previously had two family shoots with us. One when baby Flo was just a few weeks and another when she was nearly one..
We were let in on a surprise that not even Jack knew about and was not going to be publicised til after the wedding.
You can read about the surprise shoot here
Chelsea is a wonderful photographer herself so an extra special privilege to cover another wedding photographer’s big day.
We have done this a couple of times before but still extra pressure!
Ceremony St Andrews Crewe
The ceremony took place at St Andrew’s – just down the road from Crew Alexandra FC.
Such a welcome we had, offered tea beforehand ad the vicar himself moved bins out of the way for the photos.
Jack and the guys were well on time for the ceremony – Chelsea (as Jack knew she would ) kept him waiting for a while.
Bit of drizzle but once arrived it was suddenly a rush of bridesmaids, babies and a dog getting in place to prepare the way for Chelsea to enter with her mum and Jack’s Dad
Chelsea could not contemplate getting married without her faithful pet Rolo being present. Cue adorable pics during the ceremony.
Little Flo also made a special entrance in her truck pulled by the bridesmaids. It was quite a procession!
Enjoyable ceremony with readings and lighting of candles in memory of Jack’s mm and Chelsea’s Dad,
Lots of laughter and typical Chelsea smiles throughout the service. A day Chelsea had planned and re-planned, so she was going to make the most of every single minute.
It was great to have Moe and Amber along to Video the day too – they know Chelsea really well and we got on great, helping each other out with shots and film.
Check out their new website – video is now managed by Ambe, so Ambervideos is the new brand name.
They kept Flo entertained during the signing of the registers.
Soon they were walking out to happy congratulations and a confetti tunnel
Onwards to Slater Country Inn – but not before stopping at a drive-through Maccies!
Slaters Country Inn Wedding Reception
A warm welcome was given at Slater’s Country Inn, set in rural Staffordshire.
Formerly an 18th-century working farm, it hs been converted to a cosy wedding venue. You can also marry here in the cute outdoor barn
There was time for mingling outside before the wedding breakfast and some portraits.
Chelsea is not your typical bride so we went with the flow of the day, capturing images as they happened.
Refreshingly Chelsea didn’t seem to mind that her dress was getting blacker by the minute, she was even rolling on the floor at one time.
Still, we managed to get some romantic as well as fun shots throughout the day and evening
do you see the heart shape in the hedge ??
Special places reserved fort hose sadly not able to be with Chelsea and Jack – a lovely idea.
we popped out before dessert and speeches for a few more pics and again after speeches
Time after speeches and before evening for more relaxing and family pics
Soon it was time for the evening to start with the traditional cake cut and first dance to get things going.
Thank you, Chelsea and Jack, for capturing your day. Thank you for being you, it was a mad but enjoyable day!
Wishing you much happiness and well wishes for the new arrival. Much love Sandy & Dave xx
