Some important logistical stuff..
St Mary's church and Iscoyd Park are within walking distance of each other, but 20 miles down the road from Chester itself (about a 40 minute drive) - worth bearing in mind when booking a place to stay.
It's a 5 minute drive between the church and reception venue or a 20 minute walk along pretty (but not stiletto friendly) country lanes. After the ceremony and a few photos we'll be asking guests to make their way to the reception for a glass of champagne.
It is almost impossible to get taxis on the night of the wedding, so you need to pre-book transport to get you home. If several guests are staying in one place we can coordinate and book small coaches or mini buses, just get in touch.
Last orders will be about 1am.
