About Me, Spear Photography  

Carrie Spear, Wedding Photographer Chester

Hello, my name is Carrie Spear. I started Spear Photography back in 2013.  I am in love with weddings & photographing happy couples on the best day of their lives.

I married my husband at Ruthin Castle back in 2012 & we have been together for nearly 23 years, we have an awesome 9 year old son & 2 beautiful little Chihuahuas, I'm originally from North London, we live in Great Sutton after moving to this part of the world over 20 years ago.


I love photography & love the physical process of observing a scene or subjects & taking beautiful natural photos of moments as they happen, I use alot of candid photography to help capture the story of the events I photograph. I am quite relaxed and calm when I photograph, however I can also give direction when needed, sometimes when organising a group photo of 100 plus people, this is most definitely needed.  I do have a more modern approach to wedding photography & whilst I ensure you get wedding photos you love, I also appreciate that there is nothing worse than an overbearing photographer barking orders at your guests, I know that if I just let everybody get on with having a great time, I will get much more natural & beautiful images, even if this sometimes involves a bit of stealth movement around the wedding venue.

When I photograph your wedding, special event or new arrival I want you to enjoy the process & my main focus is ensuring you do, this shows in the final images. I have a passion for fashion & beauty & the more fashion forward or quirky your wedding, the more I will adore photographing it. I have seen a trend move more towards relaxed, rustic & boho style weddings over the last few years, I absolutely love this style of wedding. However I also love a city centre, party affair.  

I am also flexible with my packages, I get asked to photograph lots of different types of weddings, from a few hours of coverage with 20 guests at a registry office & then a private party, to being with a bride from early in the morning till after the happy couple have their first dance in the evening with over 150 guests. 

Whatever your requirements, please contact me and I will be delighted to explain the various services I offer in more detail. I appreciate that all Clients are unique and tailor each shoot specifically to help enhance and compliment the subject, whoever or whatever they may be. I receive excellent feedback from my bridal couples and their families and friends upon viewing their wedding photography. I have been  lucky to achieve many of my bookings through referrals from previous happy customers. 

I  am a Chester based wedding photographer, however I provide wedding photography across the whole of Cheshire, the North West and North Wales.  


"Absolutely fabulous! Carrie was so lovely and really listened to what we wanted. She took such beautiful candid photos and helped us to get the ‘mantelpiece’ photos too. She was lovely to have around on the day, nothing was too much trouble and we were blown away by the photos. Carrie is really knowledgeable too and had ideas we hadn’t thought of which gave us some beautiful pics. I highly highly recommend her!!"
