Jade Maguire is based in Flintshire, North Wales but covers weddings across the whole of North Wales, North West, Cheshire, the whole UK and beyond.


She says of her work…


“I am a creative and natural storytelling wedding photographer who’s a lover of rustic, alternative, vintage and eclectic weddings.”

“I’m all about fun photography and capturing the realness between my stunning couples in the most relaxed of ways, I want to be able to give couples AMAZING memories that last a lifetime.”

“When they look back at their pictures, showing their grandchildren in 40 years’ time, I want them to be able to entirely relive the emotions of that moment, relive what they felt; so to be able to give people that gift, I think is truly an achievement and a huge honour!”


“The couple found me through Facebook on a wedding selling page. and from our first meeting I instantly loved them, and their ideas for their wedding day.”

“Their Wedding Day was amazing and I was honoured to be a part of it.”

“The bridal prep was stunning. Emma opted for a vintage glam look with make up by Faye of The Dolls house make up, even wearing a vintage dress, and opting for a vintage car.”

“As soon as I arrived the first thing I was asked was ‘can I have a picture bouncing on the bed with my sister’; I knew this was going to be fun.”

“Emma and Stuart chose to have a church wedding by candle light in Emmas home village in a little but insanely stunning church in Eccleston.”

“It was a beautiful ceremony, with a stunning solo vocalist and welsh readings by one of their dear friends.”

“The candle light added to the romance and intimacy of their day.”

“I already knew that Emma and Stuart met whilst working at Duttons wine bar in Chester City centre so I clearly understood why they chose to have their wedding venue there.”

“Its also one of my all-time favourite places to go in Chester so when I found out they were having it here I was very excited.”

“It is situated down a little cobbled alley in Chester City Centre opposite the cathedral, with roped fairy lights overhead, vines and greenery over some of the buildings it’s a rather romantic destination, and It was made even better by their late winter wedding!”

“Emma is a professional dancer so her whole day was about having fun, even down to her father’s speech being animated by her sister to dramatise her old expressive dance days at university.”

“The speeches were truly hilarious, and every speech was original, they all found ways to involve all of Emma and Stuarts loved ones, by entertaining, having every table involved in a new version of the 12 days of Christmas.”

“Even her best friends from school surprised them with a take on Mr and Mrs, the questions were written as though their young child Albie had asked them!”

“I personally don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much at a wedding speech.”

“Emma and Stuart were amazing, they were so chilled and laid back and really allowed me to get creative.”

“Having already conducted an engagement shoot with them it made it even easier to work with them as we already had a special working relationship and understanding of another.”

“Living in Chester they were both keen to get their images located in the famous hot spots of Chester, I’m in love with how these images turned out.”

“From night time images in front of the Grosvenor Hotel, to the clock tower and much more, just left me thrilled and excited to have captured their wedding.”

How did you meet?

“We met at Duttons, the wine bar I worked at in Chester.”

“Stuart was a manager and dating staff wasn’t allowed but we fell for each other and Stuart left so we could be together.”

Tell us about the Engagement?

“The engagement also occurred at Duttons during a reopening event after refurbishment.”

“We were living in the Lakes at the time and with me not knowing obviously made us late because I needed to eat at services on the way.”

“Eventually Stuart got down on one knee at the place where we met with some of our closest friends in attendance and asked me to marry him.”

Tell us about your wedding planning journey

“Our wedding planning journey was rather a long one for two reasons.”

“Firstly we wanted to make sure we could afford the wedding and we also had a baby boy!”

“We began by wanting to get married in the autumn and planned an entirely different wedding 3 years ago.”

“After having our son we realised how important it was to have a wedding that represented us as a family and our journey so far so we shifted time of the year, to winter and reception venue and I’m so glad we did!”

“I had found the dress before having Albert and was very pleased that I still fitted in it afterwards.”

“The dress very much informed the style of the rest of the wedding, 1920s vintage glamour.”

“In each part of the planning we kept ensuring that everything was personal to us from having readings in English (Emma) and in Welsh (Stuart) to poppy seeds as favours at our dogs name is Poppy.”

“We got married in the church I grew up attending and was a part of the church choir by candlelight, on twelfth night, surrounded by our family and friends, what could be better!”

What was the best bit of your day?

“The best bit was holding hands and saying our vows together and truly becoming a family!”

What advice would you give to other couples getting married?

“Do what you can afford, there are always ways to make things cheaper and maintain quality!”

“If people make a fuss over invites, it’s probably not worth having them there!”

“Do it in a way that is personal to you as a couple and forget what’s ‘supposed’ to happen! It’s a big party…make it fun!”

“And most importantly remember it’s about you marrying the person you want to spend your life with and nothing else!”
