On July 24th we photographed the wedding of Sam and Katy at All Saints Church, Hoole, Chester. We met Sam and Katy earlier on in the year at the wedding of another Sam and Katie #1 (notice Katie with an "ie"). Yes, believe me, it got very confusing! They had been bridesmaid and usher at Sam and Katies #1 wedding and had watched us like hawks throughout their wedding. By the end of the day they said they were 90% certain they wanted us as their photographers! We were excited! A week later we had an email to say they were 100% certain they wanted us. We were uber-chuffed!
We knew this would be a very creative and original day and had heard little bits and pieces about their plans. One thing that they were very excited about was their plans for decorating the reception venue, which was the church hall attached to All Saints. Have you seen the movie "The Holiday"? If so you might remember the tent scene in which Jude Laws children are having a sleepover. Well, they wanted to capture that feel. It worked perfectly! As you will see in these photos there was so much originality about the day. Hand painted canvases, a plasticine modelling competition, red shoes, spotty umbrella, scrabble letters, sunflowers and vibrant purple dresses!
