About Opulent Photography

Wedding Photography. Chester, Cheshire


£950 - 2000


Your wedding day is a big deal and your photos are super important, but you might feel nervous about having your photos taken and the thought of having to pose makes you both cringe, but we can take the pain out of posing for awkward photos for you!

The weddings we have done have worked with us because they know that we have a fun and relaxed approach, our aim is to get the candid moments of your guests having fun, or moments between you and your loved ones that are happening throughout the day and our aim is to be as unobtrusive as possible so that you don’t even realise we’re there. We’ve found that these kinds of photos make for the best record of your day.

And while we will spend some time getting some romantic couple’s portraits, we will simply ask you to get close and do what feels natural to you both with tiny refinements to make it look pretty – nothing too scary at all. On the day couples actually love the time that they get away from the wedding party, so hopefully with your mind put at ease you can now look forward to this part of the day!

Previous Weddings

It is really hard for us to pick our favourite weddings as we have had the pleasure of photographing some really amazing couples in some beautiful venues. 

We love big manor houses and big gardens or country side, Thornton Manor, Carden Park and Leasowe castle are just some of the venues we have been lucky enough to photograph


Take a look at some reviews from our previous clients.

Myself and my husband had Kate and Steve as our photographers on 7th March and I can’t put into enough words how fantastic they are!!! Both Kate and Steve have such a friendly and calming manner and really put you at ease. They listen and know exactly what you want and were an absolute pleasure to have around. I have seen a few snippets of the photos and I am absolutely blown away. They look amazing!! I absolutely recommend them to every single person. If I went back in time I would re-book them again and again with no hesitation. 5 stars and the warmest of thank you from myself and Callum x

Me and my husband chose opulent photography for our wedding day as their style was exactly what we wanted for our big day. From the booking to the big day they always made us feel so at ease and answered all questions we had. They are really the most loveliest couple and couldn't do enough for us on our wedding day even to getting me a drink to calm my nerves... our guests even commented on how lovely a couple and photographers you where on the day and I really am so excited to see the rest of our wedding photos. thank you for making it so special and capturing our day as we wanted it. love Joanne and Chris.

Omg if you are looking for a photographer do not go anywhere else as Kate and Steve are perfect!! A down to earth married couple who are so professional and put you 100% at ease!! My new husband hates photos and I’m talking chandler bing hates photos but even he was ok. The price beats others hands down for what you get from them and they listen to everything you want. We wanted natural photos not silly poses and they ensured this was the case, obviously we had all the normal group photos and just the two of us photos but the rest was capturing the moment!! An the photo booth went down a storm everyone loved it, it was so much fun 5 service thank you for capturing out perfect day and giving us the memories to see again and again for years to come xx

Ok So My New Wife Sonia met Kate and Steve at a wedding fayre. Bearing in mind we had already paid another photographer £200 deposit this was a big move. Kate and Steve made Sonia feel so at ease Sonia insisted I spoke with them. As people they are amazing, and definitely it was the right call for us to swap our photographers. So we met at our venue 12 weeks prior to our wedding, we posed for sample photos so Kate and Ste could get to know us, put us at ease and know the venue. On the day the pair where so attentive to our requests. They captured pretty much every possible photo of our day along with our guests. Assertive enough to get the shots you need without being to in your face. Communication with them both was easy with fairly instant responses (within reason). 7-8 weeks later our photos were ready, a usb with almost 600 photos on. Professionally edited making us reminisce on our day and what we missed as our day flew by. Now we just need to pick a select few for our album. I couldn't thank Kate and Ste enough not for being our photographers but for being part of our day. They helped us have the most amazing day, and for that Me and Sonia thank the pair of you. P.S, it’s your day soon. Enjoy every minute as it goes so fast.
