A wedding, a carnival and a cast of thousands! part one

wedding photo by CG Weddings Chester (28)Angela and Adam chose the busiest day in Chester’s calendar for their wedding – but it’s a day they’ll never forget, giant papier-mache people and all!

The Chester Grosvenor pulled out all the stops to make sure the bride and groom, their horse and carriage and the open-top bus could navigate the (otherwise closed!) roads to the hotel amidst the carnival crowds – and it makes for a spectacular wedding blog post – or two!…

I’ll share this in two parts – with words by Angela and photos by Chester wedding photographers CG Weddings. Enjoy!

wedding photo by CG Weddings Chester (27)I wore a Maggie Sottero ‘Chance’ wedding dress. This dress style was discontinued a week after I placed my order so I was probably the very last bride to wear this down the aisle. I’m very petite so I needed a tightly fitted A-line type dress in a petite fit and ‘Chance’ fitted the bill perfectly. The dress was bought from Sense and Sensibility in Hazel Grove, Stockport.

The Chester Grosvenor was completely faultless in managing our big day from working tirelessly to ensuring our carriage and tour bus could access the closed roads, to serving us exquisite food for the wedding breakfast.

We of course can’t recommend Liam Crawley – CG Weddings – enough as a photographer. As mentioned his manipulation of light and colour during the day produced some shots as beautiful and dramatic as any of those feasible in a country house type setting. CG Weddings blog is at http://cgweddings.co.uk/blog

Victoria, our florist from Lily Rose events based in Cheadle Hulme, Stockport. The apricot and ivory centre piece arrangements for the wedding breakfast were stunning.

Gabrielle Fisher from Kingfisher Cakes in Bromborough supplied us with a spectacular and very individual ‘Top Table’ style cake which proved one of the major talking points of the whole day!
