Back in April on a lovely sunny Cheshire day I had the pleasure and privilege to photograph the wedding of Sheri and Rob at one of Cheshire’s top venues and my favourite the glorious Grosvenor Pulford Hotel and Spa.
The men in the morning on a lovely sunny day in Cheshire. The young page boy it the Bride and Groom’s son and was wonderful all day long. Not easy when you are young!
A proud father taking his daughter to the service. Sheri is such a beautiful person it was a real honour to cover her big day.
Sometimes a photo says so much and this one tells many a story. Each person seems to be looking a different direction and in their own thoughts except Sheri and Rob who only have eyes for each other. What a smile!!
I think Dad is rather relieved that bit went smoothly. Now he can relax and enjoy the day, well apart from the speeches….
I don’t think Sheri stopped smiling all day, or for that matter whenever I’ve met her. The exchange of the wedding rings such a traditional and beautiful part of the wedding service.
After the service we we spent some time taking photos in the original gardens of the Grosvenor Pulford. The trees were still in full winter attire however the gardens at the Grosvenor Pulford still look amazing.
Love this shot – it has so much fun going on.
After taking photographs in the old gardens of the Grosvenor Pulford hotel we moved to the new Oriental Gardens with the big sky. This garden is stunning for photography.
The entourage looking wonderful in the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel and Spa Oriental Garden. The bridesmaids dresses really do stand out wonderfully in the winter sun.
I really like this wedding photograph with the blue skies in the background and the wonderful couple in the foreground.
Another lovely photograph in the gardens of the Grosvenor Pulford. The sky is amazing backdrop to the wedding images.
Beautiful portrait of Sheri and Rob.
The Grosvenor Pulford mirror is a must do photograph and a brilliant place to show off the wedding dress of Sheri. She looks amazing.
A lovely Black and White photograph of Sheri.
I really love this angle, and the fact Sheri can see the front and back of her wedding dress in one photograph. I have finished it in colour sepia which I thing goes really well with the gold and the guild of the Grosvenor Pulford mirror.
Sheri and Rob looking really amazing in front of the grand mirror at the Grosvenor Pulford.
Let hear it for the girls. Sheri and her bridesmaids, the ladies in red!
A joint speech, not many brides get up to talk but nothing was going to keep Sheri in her seat. I was only employed for day cover so unfortunately that was it for me.
It was a real pleasure to photograph the wedding of Sheri and Rob and as always a real pleasure working at the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel and Spa.
I had the pleasure of photographing Laura and Paul’s wonderful Welsh wedding at St Giles Church Wrexham on Saturday and thought I’d share just one image from it as it will be a few weeks until I have caught up with the blog backlog.
THe stunning interior of St Giles Church in Wrexham
I love this shot of the happy couple walking down the magnificens aisle of St Giles Church in Wrexham, North Wales. The Church is really massive and has been a place of worship for centuries and the tower is considered one of the 7 wonders of Wales. It is amazing the history and stories a magnificent church like this holds.
Paul and Laura were a brilliant couple and coped with all the Welsh spring could put thier way or their big day.
It was a wonderful wedding to be part of and I look forward to sharing a few more of the wonderful wedding photos from the day with you.
Back in early April I had the pleasure of photographing the stunning Cheshire wedding of Carl and Gemma at Cheshire’s finest venue the stunning Grosvenor Pulford Hotel and Spa just on the North Wales border.
Gemma and Carl were a perfect couple for the day and so amazing to work with on their wedding day and on top of that the evening sky was magnificent for some outdoor wedding photography in the amazing Oriental Gardens.
The morning of the wedding is always a loely time to document the day, I try and stay in the background as it can be a very stressful time for the bride!
A wedding is made up of so many amazing details and the wedding photography is an amazing medium for bringing back these amazing memories.
A special perfume for Gemma’s special day. A wonderful wedding.
Gemma looking a little pensive in the service. A moment caught in time.
I love the young bridesmaid watching Gemma and Carl have a kiss whilst signing the register.
Gemma and Carl on the bridge in the main gardens of the Grosvenor Pulford. A must do location for wedding photography.
This is a wider shot of the wonderful bridge in the Grosvenor Pulford’s Garden. I really like the finish on this one.
What a beautiful day for a wedding and what a wonderful venue and a brilliant couple.
The Grosvenor Pulford has an amazing interior and the mirror is a brilliant spot for showing off the wedding dress, Gemma looks amazing.
Carl and Gemma by the big mirror, beautiful spot and a bit warmer than outside!!
Gemma was such a beautiful bride and a pleasure to work with on her big day.
The speeches, a highlight of the wedding day and also often dreaded by the participants!
Gemma looking a million dollars in the stunning Oriental Gardens at the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel and spa. I love the reflection in the water.
I love this wedding photograph, a stunning sunset over the Welsh Hills and a glorious reflection in a Cheshire lake.
I love this sky, big beautiful and with loads of colours. Gemma and Carl could do a lot worse than have this one big on the wall!
This is very similar to the above photo but has a colour sepia finish on the wedding photograph.
Gemma looking brilliant against the Cheshire Sky in the garden of the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel.
I really like this shot of Carl and Gemma in the gardens.
It so amazing when we get a sunset and time to capture it. I love this shot.
Gemma and Carl where so amazingly lucky to have such a beautiful evening and it not warm out there but not once has Gemma or Carl complained. I think their hard work has really helped in producing some artistic photography.
Gemma every inch the supermodel bride looking amazing against the waterfall in the Oriental Gardens of the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel and Spa.
Carl and Gemma in the Oriental Garden – it was really cold out there, April was not a warm month this year but I doubt they will remember the weather when they see the warmth in the photos.
I love this one – not a lot more to say!!
The sun has more or less set now and the temperature is dropping just time for one more wonderful photograph in the Gardens.
Gemma has a really stunning wedding dress and this shot captures it beautifully against a setting sun.
The first dance and last job for me. A perfect end to a wonderful day.
Gemma and Carl had a really amazing Cheshire Wedding at the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel and Spa and it was a real pleasure to be part of it.
What a wonderful wedding I had yesterday with Sarah and Mark at the beautiful Christleton Church just around the corner from my house followed by a brilliant reception at the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel and Spa a few miles away on the Cheshire/North Wales border.
I’ll blog the rest of the wedding in a few weeks but thought I’d share a couple of my favourites, it really hard choosing my favourites but if you want to see more I’ll add a selection to my facebook page at www.Facebook.com/joejordphotography or if you know Sarah and Alex the entire amazing day will be on my web site at www.JoeJord.co.uk under the proofs tab. Ask Sarah or Alex for the password.
A very informal formal wedding photo!!
I love the sky in this image, a beautiful shot from the Oriental Gardens of the Grosvenor Pulford.
I have chosen one really fun group shot as I normally blog the more dramatic and artistic images on my blog but I always have a lot of fun at a wedding it after all a brilliantly happy occasion. This is a lovely group of all the wedding entourage in the Oriental Gardens of the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel and Spa, I love the expressions on peoples faces but can’t really repeat what has been said!!
The second image, in my opinion at least has real wow factor and would be a beautiful fine art image to adorn the couples wall for years to come. We have been incredibly lucky with the sky but it must be pointed out how much work has gone into the image. Alex and Sarah altered the times of the first dance so we would have the opportunity to shoot around sunset and the entire wedding entourage left the bar (not easy after a long day!) so we could have some fun in the garden.
The photograph also isn’t straightforward at all, the is a lot of lighting wizardry going on to illuminate the wedding scene but I feel it was worth every minute to have the chance of recording an artistic wedding image like this.
Have a wonderful weekend and please feel free to add any comments.
Wow this wedding was like meeting old friends as Ross and Kerry have had this day booked with me for few years and Ross has even been the best man at another wedding I have shot. All the entourage looked very familiar!!
Kerry and Ross had incredible enthusiasm for their wedding photographers and had really planned every single detail of the wedding day at Cheshire’s finest venue the gorgeous Grosvenor Pulford Hotel and Spa.
The weather was a bit cold (freezing!!) and snowy which kept the outdoor shots to a minimum. Luckily the Grosvenor Pulford as well as having two beautiful gardens has a stunning interior.
These shoes are made walking – right down the aisle. I love the hues and colours in this image.
Kerry getting ready for the biggest day of her life. All the dresses look ready!
The men seem to have an easier job getting ready than the ladies on the wedding morning!
The temperature was just around freezing, thankfully the car park was clear and gust had little problem arriving for a wonderful wedding.
Ross all set for his big day.
Kerry and Ross first make eye contact, a wonderful tender moment in front of all the wedding guests.
Ross seems to have something stuck in his eye!!
Ross and Kerry are so in love and it shows. What a wonderful wedding.
Snow and ice wouldn’t stop Ross and Kerry getting outside on their wedding day. The Garden of the Grosvenor Pulford are amazing for wedding photography.
Ross finds an easy way to keep Kerry’s wedding shoes dry!
After being outside at 0c with a sharp wind it was lovely to work get a warm inside!. The interior of the Grosvenor Pulford is beautiful.
The wedding entourage! Working hard and keeping warm.
Kerry, the stunning bride looking amazing.

A ultra wide angle shot of the wedding breakfast with Kerry and Ross taking center stage.
After the wedding breakfast Kerry and Ross ventured back outside into the cold and snow! The oriental gardens looks beautiful in the snow.
Kerry and Ross looking wonderful in the Grosvenor Pulford Gardens in the snow.
We didn’t stay out too long and instead used some of the amazing spots in the Grosvenor Pulford for images. This is a really different feel to the big mirror!
Kerry, radiant on her wedding day.
A lovely fun shot of all the girls in the entourage.
I love this shot, Kerry and Ross in the bedroom of the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel and Spa

The girls look like they are having fun!! The last photos for me and the party just really getting going!
It was a lovely wedding and a real pleasure to be part of it. Kerry looked a amazing and had planned every single detail to perfection, I don’t think she had planned on the snow however!!
What a wonderful wedding and a pleasure to be involved with it.
