Robyn and Alex are outdoor type folk, thats why they chose a wedding at Ness Gardens. An outdoor ceremony at Ness Gardens in the gazebo amongst the rock garden is pretty special and unique. Driving over to Chester in the morning the indications were that the outdoor nature of this wedding would be very very wet, in fact the forecast and the super heavy rain suggested that this would be an indoor wedding. As it gets nearer to the wedding and we have met with our bride and grooms a few times you do definitely feel a bit more like friends, especially with Robyn and Alex who are really easy going and a pleasure to be around. So we knew then that they chose to have a wedding at Ness Gardens because of the setting. We needn’t have worried though because an hour before the ceremony the clouds lifted and the sun came out, the sun shines on the righteous and all that. In fact during and after the ceremony a robin was bobbing around the gazebo, definitely a good omen for Robyn we think.
Alex and Robyn are big fans of our work and the photography side of things was very important to them, they did say that they wanted us to let our creative side run wild and that they didn’t want cheesy posed images, this is music to our ears, not that we do cheesy posed images anyway. This I hope is borne out by the first image here. Its something I have been working on for a while but never done at a wedding. There are some other examples of this technique,on our Instagram page HERE, it shows our influences which are classic art and fashion photography, I’m really chuffed with it and I’m pretty sure Robyn and Alex will be too.
We met up with Robyn and her level bridesmades getting ready at Crabwell Manor, it was clear to see the affection that they had for Robyn,as the day went on it became clear the affection that everyone had for Robyn, she is one of those infectious people to be around.
Robyn made the journey to Ness Gardens in a Land rover discovery, good on you girl 🙂 where Alex was patiently waiting in the sun looking extremely dapper.
After the beautiful ceremony whilst the guests enjoyed a drink in the rock garden we quickly nipped of with Alex and Robyn to make the most of the gardens and made our way to some locations that myself and Amanda had planned early on. The gardens (tended by Liverpool University) truly looked magnificent and fitted in with our mutual vision for the photographs perfectly.
We then joined the guests in plenty of time for the meal and speeches, worth a mention is that Alex’s best man was a woman, his sister and a fab job she did too, her speech was really great.
With the dancing under way we said our goodbyes and left this brilliant wedding in full swing. Robyn and Alex we wish you much future happiness and we know you will enjoy your photographs for many years to come.xx
