We feature this lovely wedding of Carley and Ben’s wedding from September, held at the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel in Chester, captured by Rebecca Parson’s Photography.
Our day was just perfect. Our families are spread throughout the country- from Scotland all the way down to Essex, so getting both sides of the family together for the weekend was very special. We even managed to get some autumn sunshine meaning we could enjoy the beautiful gardens of our venue.
Me and Ben met through work when he was based in Manchester and I was based in Derbyshire. We relocated to Northwich, Cheshire in 2015 where we bought our first house together. Ben later proposed at home by spelling out ‘marry me’ over a game of Scrabble. We both have a shared love for live music and take any opportunity to go and see bands and go to music festivals.
What we loved most about our day was having all of our closest friends and family there to share in the fun with us. A lot of our guest stayed with us the night before the wedding, so felt extra special that we could make it a full weekend celebration.

I wanted to use local companies around the North West so researched who came highly recommended on wedding blogs and websites such as Hitched. I’m typically quite indecisive, however when it came to finding our suppliers, there was no doubt in my mind that each one would be perfect- and perfect they all were.
Our advice would be to not stress about the small things whilst planning your big day. Things most likely wont go exactly to plan, but remember that ultimately the day is about the two of you celebrating your love for each other and spending it with those that matter most to you- so smile, enjoy and take in every single second!
Their testimonial for the photography:
Becky I’m not sure I can find the words…. from the moment we first spoke on the phone, to meeting in person and on our special day, you were so friendly, calming and professional.
You listened to what we wanted and gave advice in areas we didn’t even think to take into account. Iv had so many many guests tell me how lovely and amazing you were. You even remembered to whisk us away for a special picture moment I had mentioned to you on our first meeting, something I had completely forgot about on our wedding day.
Your relaxed, friendly and sociable approach truly made and captured our day so perfectly. I can’t thank you enough
