Ceremony Venue – Nunsmere Hall – Chester
Reception Venue – Nunsmere Hall – Chester
Vivid arrived at Nunsmere Hall on a beautiful sunny day. This was going to briefly change but more on that later. Nunsmere is a country house hotel near Chester. The venue provides a sophisticated wedding experience situated in the beautiful Delamere Forest.
This was an easier filming experience for the Vivid team as both the bride and groom were getting ready at the venue. This enabled us to film the couple getting ready, so relaxed and surrounded by family and friends. It was a really fun and joyous occasion mixed with anticipation of the impending ceremony and apprehension about the changing weather forecast.
The ceremony was held on the extensive lawn outside the garden, there was a last-minute weather check and it was ready for the bride’s arrival. There was an air of anticipation with the waiting group and then the music started and the bride made her entrance. We normally film indoors but with the sun shining there is no better place to have a wedding. Having said that as the bride and groom had gone inside to sign the wedding certificate, the heavens opened and it started to rain. This author was the one packing up the equipment and I got royally soaked to the skin.
Thankfully the rain storm was short lived and the congregation moved outside to enjoy the sun again. We filmed all the reception, the heart-felt speeches and night festivities. This was leading up to a very special moment, a 5-minute firework extravaganza enjoyed by all the guests.
It was a remarkable wedding and great to see a couple so much in love. It was great to document this wedding for the couple and we remain friends to this day.
