Concept Wedding Wedding Photography Chester Cheshire & North Wales Thu, 03 Apr 2014 19:50:44 +0000 en-US hourly 1 2013 Wedding Photography Tue, 15 Jan 2013 11:39:04 +0000 Continue reading 2013 Wedding Photography]]> I always start the year promising to blog more, especially since I only did three wedding blogs last year. Since I’m here, I think I should do a quick blog on just a few of our more recent weddings.

In the years of wedding photography we have never come across two weddings which are similar, we face new exciting challenges every shoot we do. This is what keeps Concept Wedding on its toes and at its best. If we become bored we just wouldn’t do wedding photography anymore, but how can we get bored when we meet different personalities, shoot in different location and face numerous weather conditions all the time.
We recently shot Sarah and James on golf course and driving range ( I like the photo of James instinctively protecting his wedding tackle). We had Andrea and Chris who hired a London bus, which gave some great photo opportunities, of course we had to photograph them snogging on the back of the bus. And we came across our first bride, Ruth, who didn’t mind climbing a tree in her wedding dress and showing us some of her cheer leading poses. In all honesty how could we get bored?

Vintage Chic Wedding Photography Tue, 25 Sep 2012 14:18:07 +0000 Continue reading Vintage Chic Wedding Photography]]> Belinda & Martin, the most beautiful,  oh-so-in-love couple, opted for a Vintage Chic wedding with a dash of rustic charm. Situated in the heart of the English countryside this Cheltenham based romantic wedding was a day of celebration as Belinda walked down the aisle in a stunning lace detailed dress & empire veil at the St Michael’s Church, Bishops Cleeves (sentimentally it was the same church as her best friend & maid of honor Jo was married a few years previous). Following the service and a few family photos, the celebrations continuing at the newly converted Stone Barn in Aldsworth  and despite the rain no ones spirits could be dampened. Belinda simply swopped her shoes for a pair of Hunter’s and away we went for some stunning photo’s.

Night followed day with ease as the party danced away enjoying up-beat band & succulent hog roast washed down with many a drink. Simply a perfect wedding & with Gary behind the lens he of course added his own personal style to the images of the day.

Concept Wedding delivers exceptional wedding photography throughout the uk and is based in Chester & North Wales

Banksy’s latest work found on the streets of London Tue, 15 May 2012 16:42:11 +0000 Continue reading Banksy’s latest work found on the streets of London]]>

Above is what is thought to be Banksy’s latest work which appeared in the early morning on the streets of London. With Banksy’s work usually having a political agenda  it is more than likely raising issues of child labour on the back of the Diamond Jubilee. The mystique surrounding Banksy’s identity was supposedly exposed by the Daily Mail last year. The thought that Banksy was from an under privileged background who grew up on a council estate was crushed, revealing his background was in fact public school, middle class and married to parliamentary lobbyist.

Whilst Banksy’s work always raises interest, there is a stir happening around the streets of Chester. An unknown artist’s work is appearing on the streets of Chester, after much investigation we are still unable to reveal who it is. The work you can see below however does reveal that there is no political agenda, but his/her agenda seems to be what really makes the world a better place to live and that is LOVE. If anyone has any idea who the artist is could you please contact

SHROPSHIRE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY Tue, 17 Jan 2012 11:53:23 +0000 Continue reading SHROPSHIRE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY]]> It was a cold but dry day for Kate & Tim’s wedding photography at Delbury Hall in Shropshire, as much as you could hope for in January. The weather may have been cold, but without sounding to cheesy, there was a warm & loving atmosphere through out the day and plenty of emotion. I was a bit disappointed in Tim (the Groom) chasing birds on his wedding day, it was a first for me to see and I managed to capture it on film (sensor) for all to see and below is the evidence. Seriously though we had lots of fun with Kate & Tim, they make a great couple and we wish them all the best for the future.

NESTON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY Sun, 06 Nov 2011 11:52:19 +0000 Continue reading NESTON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY]]> We were on a tight schedule and had 10 minutes to take Ellie and Tom to Parkgate to get shots of them alone. The sun was falling from the sky at a rate of knots and we still had group shots to photograph. Take the easy option, no, not Concept Wedding. We thought we do some contre jour shots, translated it means “into the light”. Shooting into the sun is a technique that would send shivers down the spine of most photographers with such a short time frame. But Ellie and Tom were so easy to work with we knew we could get some stunning images of them and the DB6.

MOONLIGHT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT INGLEWOOD MANOR Wed, 19 Oct 2011 19:55:35 +0000 Zoe & Matthew had 5 minutes to spare before the first dance, the moon was out, I had a wireless trigger for off camera flash, an umberella and a fantastic assistant. Add to this imagination and vision and this is what we come up with. Stunning if I may say so myself.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT INGLEWOOD MANOR Wed, 12 Oct 2011 21:24:49 +0000 Continue reading WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT INGLEWOOD MANOR]]> I have been that busy photographing and editing weddings I just haven’t had the chance to blog. Over the next month I will be able to catch up on the blogging front. I just couldn’t resist this blog. Below is a photograph from Zoe and Matthew’s wedding at Inglewood Manor on the Wirral. I think they thought I was a little Mad when I took them into a run down out building by the tennis courts at Inglewood Manor, especially since Inglewood has so many fantastic spots for photography. I thinkk this shot is going to be one of my favorites for while.

Queen Hotel Chester Wedding Photography Thu, 11 Aug 2011 21:38:04 +0000 Continue reading Queen Hotel Chester Wedding Photography]]> There is now doubt the Queen Hotel Chester is a fantastic location for a wedding.  As a photographer it has other benefits as well as the stunning interiors, it is a stones throw away from Chester Railway Station and 5 minutes from Chester Park. The railway station is a great location for some quirky wedding shots and I know just the tree in Chester Park for some breath taking images , I have even used it to shoot an album cover there. The shot below and many more took less than 45 minutes, you don’t have to give a lot of precious time on your wedding day to get stunning photographs, just take a look.

Portmeirion Wedding Photography Thu, 28 Jul 2011 19:48:29 +0000 Continue reading Portmeirion Wedding Photography]]> Portmeirion, North Wales, Wedding Photography by Concept Wedding

Portmeirion, the Italian village on the North Wales coast near Porthmadog is a fantastic location for a wedding and the photography. The hotel interior is beautifully designed and finished and the views are exceptional to say the least. Just look at the view outside the Peacock Suite window in the photograph of the flowers. I will remember Carole & Brian’s wedding day for the laughter and stunning location. There are just too many stunning locations and laughter to include in this blog, especially since I wanted to include Carole’s Mum wardrobe malfunction (her shoes) and one of the guests tripping as she arrived.

Landscape Photographer of the Year 2011 Tue, 26 Jul 2011 23:11:17 +0000 Continue reading Landscape Photographer of the Year 2011]]> Good news today, I was informed I had been short listed for Landscape Photographer of the Year 2011. Nice title and a nice £10,000 to go with it, here’s hoping. Living the view was the title of the brief. Two of my images short listed certainly show life in the landscape, in fact they could be showing life being created in the landscape.
