Probably one of the wettest days of summer – if we can call it that – but it didn’t dampen the joy and happiness of Aimee and Ben’s wedding which took place at St Mary’s, Upton, Wirral with Ben and a his grooms men ringing the bells before Aimee’s arrival through the bell tower.Reception followed at Thornton Hall Hotel and Spa. Lovely family wedding and as always the staff at Thornton Hal were very accommodating and friendly.

A window of better weather appeared after the speeches so it was lovely to get some outdoor shots as well for Aimee and Ben before the evening dancing took place..and there were some good moves going on on the dance floor!  Ben’s brother  sadly could not make it over from the USA for the wedding but hi-tech to the rescue as the  a weblink meant he could watch the ceremony with a strategically placed laptop at the altar and a skyed speech was delivered to much emotion during the evening festivities. A touching first dance too, not with the groom but with Aimee’s father …I’m sure you can guess the song…”Dance with my father again”…and then Ben got his turn.  Many congrats Aimee and ben and your gorgeous family!
