And Breathe.....
Let me give you permission to take a moment to just relax, you are on an amazing journey, a journey of excitement, a journey that at the end of all your planning is going to be the start of your new chapter together. 

I'm Melissa, and have chosen to honor my nana 'Elsie' in my business name. I'm a Wife & Momma of two, Lucas who is off to 'High School' & Evie who is 3 months.
I am here not only to capture lasting memories but as a previous bride & extensive knowledge in the wedding industry, can also help you understand the planning, the budgeting, how to put together a successful timeline, what to do if it were to rain on your wedding day & anything else you would may like friendly support on.
I am a Chester wedding photographer for most of the year, however I am a bit of a wanderluster & more than happy to explore the UK & Europe. I recently captured a stunning wedding on Lake Garda.

I have a light & airy style, I love natural light infused images, I love to capture the beauty in all your small details, capture the moments you don't see & of course during couples portraits capture the two of you, relaxing, laughing and having a moment to yourselves to reminisce of your amazing wedding day so far. 

I can't wait to hear more about your beautiful wedding, whether wildly romantic, a bohemian dream or a Luxury & elegant theme, I love them all. 

Now let's focus on you and your soulmate, I bet you both love to travel, I do... My favorite places to get lost in my thoughts are Italy & the Greek Islands. The stunning architecture, the quaint streets & allies that are seeping with authentic shops, a glass of prosecco watching the gorgeous sunset from traditional restaurants, which brings me on to food... (I'm a bit of a foodie), 
I love pasta, pizza & a Caprice salad. Tell me friend, what's your favorite food?

I am a sucker for a romantic film, I love a happy ending. I also love a good comedy that has me in a barrel of laughs.

Lastly on my Love have just invested in a pair of gorgeous Jimmy Choo's, & have loved shoes ever since watching Cinderella & her glass slippers.

I can't wait to hear more about you.
