WOW! What a wonderful day! I seriously felt so lucky to photograph this event. The reason being Anna and Mark have been married for 25 year and wanted to renew their vows and asked me to be their Chester Racecourse Wedding Photographer.
On the run up to their special day the weather had been smashing- blue skies and sunshine but sadly that run of good weather stopped on the Sunday of May Bank Holiday Weekend and storms were brewing all day with crazy downpours!
I admired the absolute determination of wanting an outdoor ceremony and it still went ahead at Chester Racecourse.
Anna, the girls, Paul and his best man all got ready at the Abode Hotel in Chester – (which may I add a photographers dream to photograph in!)
After getting ready, everyone ventured to the bar up in the hotel for Anna to walk in and WOW! Paul once again! We got some photos up there before a flurry of taxis took everyone to Chester Racecourse.
Anna and Paul made it down the aisle just before the heavens opened for their outdoor ceremony. Their friends are such characters and through them selves into the events of the day and just drenched or grabbed their other halves jacket or shared an umbrella!
I could not have been a Chester Racecourse photographer without doing anything horse related! We did the small groups of family photos by the incredibly popular Flower Wall. Before we knew it Paul and his Best Man were bringing across a wooden horse and Paul’s lovely Mum, hopping on!
The party continued on the roof terrace at 1539. I loved everyones attitudes that they weren’t going to be defeated by the rain! Close friends continued to drink under their umbrellas in down pours and thunder and lightening!
It was an absolute joy to photo such a special day as a Chester Racecourse Wedding Photographer, if you fancy a look at any of my other work I have done at Chester Racecourse please click here. I was fortunate enough to photo numerous events last year!
