Queen Hotel Chester Wedding Alison & Ellis
After a long day with Jennie and Toby at Thornton MAnor the next day Pixsmiths were at The Queen Hotel for the Chester wedding of Alison and Ellis
A quirky hotel, lots of character and handily placed by Chester train station
A day that ran smoothly, on arrival we bumped in to Ellis arriving for breakfast with the co-ordinator so we soon had the requested stair shot organised.
Bridal preps in the Lily Langtry suite was relaxed. Lots of banter with the bridesmaids taking selfies in-between being made up by Emma Lampkin of Emmaculate – and the make up was! Ellis was also getting ready at the hotel, just the other end of the corridor in a room where Charles Darwin had stayed
….so easy for us to cover both preps.
A plus point when ceremony is at same location.
We used the roman statue as a setting for one of our ring shots. Rings were made by Roger Ho, custom made as Alison and Ellis had some rings from parents/grandparents to use and adapt. He did such a beautiful job, Alison said,” I can’t stop looking at my ring!”
Staff wonderfully organised, attentive and excellent communication through out made for a smooth running day and such an enjoyable one.
Guests made their way after the ceremony for a staircase shot and then went for the drinks in the outdoor courtyard.
Easy to mingle there and then call the family groups required quickly and easily
The wedding breakfast was in the turned around ceremony room and was beautifully set up in pinks and big dish bowls by Eva Adore venue dressing
Alison and Ellis were blown away when they checked out the room, they were so happy, Such a wonderful day for them
Again weather not too hot and rain stayed off all day – not bad for bank Holiday weekend!
Evening reception was in the large Colonnades Room to accommodate all the extra evening guests. Cake cut with one of the large ceremonial swords and then party time. Pizza fish and chips and a doughnut wall o enjoy as well as fun in the photo-booth provided by Plushbooths
Thank you again Alison and Ellis for having us capture your Queen Hotel Wedding – it was so enjoyable and we wish you much love and happiness
So going to enjoy building a beautiful album for your keepsake, going to be a hard choice for the images.
Thank you again also tho the staff at this Hallmark Hotel – we do hope we will be back for another Queens Hotel Chester wedding
