Ruby & Phil’s intimate garden wedding in Chester // Natural wedding photography by Lottie Elizabeth

Dec 2019

My wedding season has come to an end for 2019 (with 2020 shaping up to be pretty epic!) so it’s time to look back at some of the wonderful weddings that I have photographed this year, starting with my first – Ruby and Phil’s small, cosy garden party wedding in Chester!

These guys packed so much of their personalities and style into the reception at Phil’s parents’ house. After their intimate ceremony at the Chester Registry Office we all walked to the grounds of Chester cathedral for photographs as Phil’s grandpa got an OBE for helping to restore it, which was such a lovely touch. After that it was over to the reception where there was LOTS of bubbles, cask ale, food (including my favourite, Colin Caterpillar cakes!) and ALL the dancing!

Ruby is a Children’s Book Editor and Phil works for PlayStation – in their own words they love “classic/Oscar-bait/so-bad-it’s-brilliant films” so they included touches of books, video games and movies. Phil even hand crafted all of the bouquets from origami using pages from Ruby’s favourite films! They were absolutely stunning and so, so unique. 

Their main focus for photography was to have happy candids as they wanted to look back and see everyone relaxing and having fun – which is what I’m all about!

This is what Ruby and Phil’s had to say when they received their gallery:

“I did not expect to spend my Sunday morning near tears. They are incredible and you are an utter genius and goddess among women, thank you so so much. Phil and I just watched the whole presentation and are still in a bit of a state but once we’ve calmed down we’ll have a look through and sort out the prints… We love them and are so pleased you were the one we picked to take the photos of the day, you caught everything beautifully.”

Here’s a little preview from their awesome wedding:
