Your Cheshire and Merseyside Wedding - November/December 2022 (Issue 66)

EDITOR’S LETTER 7 I’ve been lucky enough to visit not one, but two Chester wedding venues recently. First up, The Queen at Chester. Being a history buff, I fell in love with its nods to the city’s Roman heritage. I can’t get enough of bride Victoria’s incredible Zavana Bridal gown. With its modern glamour and silvery hue, it was the perfect choice for a New-Year’s-Eve wedding. Also on my Chester trip I got to experience Oddfellows. While its facade and main structure sing of another iconic time period, the Georgian era, its public spaces and rooms offer something quite different. 34 24 16 41 47 61 Before we head into 2023, the region’s wedding photographers take a look back at this year’s wonderful weddings. Stuart and James finally tied the knot after three Covid moves. The glorious gardens at Arley Hall provided entertainment enough for Ceri and Michael’s guests who enjoyed exploring all day. Gemma and Paul proved you don’t need to stick with red, green and gold to pull off a festive vibe. I love, love, love cheese! So when I saw this cheese wall from Kings’ Cheese and Wine my heart did a little somersault of joy! This is a great savoury alternative to a doughnut wall for the less sweet-toothed among you. 67
