Chester Zoo Wedding Photography
Wonderful Afternoon tea and Safari Tour at the zoo
A Chester Zoo wedding is a different day to a traditional wedding day, relaxed with plenty of time for guests to explore part of the zoo before an afternoon tea.
Later a Safari tour and then back for a BBQ before the evening fun starts.
This was just the type of day Jenna and Jonny wished for themselves and their guests at their Chester Zoo wedding at Oakfield House.
The day was all on one site for us as Jenna and her bridesmaids even got ready in an upstairs room in Oakfield House.
It was great to be able to capture all the preparations and details whilst Dave could nip out and capture the groom shots.
Dad was overcome when he saw his daughter all dressed, just love capturing those shots when we can.
Dad proudly walked his daughter down the short aisle in the ceremony room to the waiting Jonny.
The room was cosy and decorated with bunting hand made crocheted by a relative
After the ceremony guests enjoyed tasty canapes of mini fish and chips and cottage pie ..they looked so delicious!
They went down a treat as it would be a while before the afternoon breakfast which would be served in the same room as the ceremony.
A few formal groups and then guests enjoyed strolling around the zoo – ready entertainment on hand!
The room looked amazing which their blue colour scheme and little animal place-cards all hand-painted by our couple and with homemade chocolate animals
When the Zoo closed its doors the wedding party was split into two groups for a safari tour with the Zookeepers.
it was dark when they arrived back so perfect time for a BBQ and then evening party with live music from the Trunk Monkeys – how apt for the Zoo!
The dance floor was packed and rocking to their music!
Thank you, Jenna and Jonny, that we could share and capture your amazing day, much love xx
TIP! So sensible thing to do before a walking tour for your Chester Zoo wedding photography is to leave the heels behind and change into flat shoes!
Jenna loves Giraffes so its no surprise her wedding cake had them featured – very elegant zoo-themed cake, very fitting for the day
..and how cute is that cake topper!
