The Cheshire Wedding of Lisa and James


I had the pleasure of photographing the gorgeous wedding of Lisa and James at the stunning St Andrew’s Church in Tarvin, one of Cheshire’s picture perfect villages . This is an ancient place of worship dating back to the 12th century and some history can be found here. It made for a  spectacular background for the wedding photography.

After the service in the stunning Cheshire Church it was back to one of Cheshire’s finest wedding Hotel’s the glorious Grosvenor Pulford Hotel and Spa a few miles down the road on the Welsh border.

I always think it a lonely place waiting at the front of the Church. I bet the minutes feel like hours!

  1. Thank you Lisa and James it was a real pleasure working with you and yours, and thank you for employing me to record your big day.

  2. Thanks so much for doing such an amazing job on our special day, Joe. It was great to have someone so relaxed around to do the photos, and you didn’t miss a moment! A particular favourite is the photo of my brother glaring at my little nephew in church, a warning to keep quiet! The expression is priceless! The results are stunning, and we can’t wait to see the final album! Many thanks.
    Lisa & James
