Such a whimsical and charming boutique hotel, Oddfellows Chester is an amazing venue for a wedding. Firstly with its reference to Alice in Wonderland and secondly with its quirky rooms, it lent itself to great creative photography.
This was the first time I had been here and felt very fortunate to be covering a Poppy and Adam wedding.
The day began at the venue where I captured James and his bestman walking towards the hotel. The both looked very dapper with a relaxed and distinguished looking dress sense. Although Adam looked a little nervous, he quickly relaxed as I began taking his photo. Soon after, they went about their duties, so I began shooting the guests arriving.
Shortly after Poppy and the bridesmaids arrived. Poppy seemed very relaxed and looked stunning in her stylish wedding dress. I captured some photos of them outside just before they entered for the ceremony.

Poppy and adam had made the most creative origami hangings which blended in to the creative atmosphere of both the ceremony room and the colourful hotel.
The ceremony was an intimate and touching ceremony, filled with enjoyment, emotion yet nevertheless full of smiles. It is a beautiful room with light filtering through the huge side windows creating a magical atmosphere. Evidently Poppy and adam only had eyes for each other as I captured their secret glances and beaming smiles.
Once in the main room, I captured the guests congratulating the newlyweds followed by taking some formal group photos.
Following on from this, we made our way to the amazing gardens of the hotel which was full of quirky themes from Alice In Wonderland. After this, they joined their guests where drinks were flowing.
Many Congratulations Poppy and Adam! Lovely to be part of your Big Day!
