Arrowe Brook Farm Tipi Wedding: Stacey & Dan
What a wonderful wedding for Stacey and Dan so delighted were were recommended to this lovely couple by a previous Pixsmiths couple
A great combination of a traditional church wedding at Christchurch Port Sunlight and then a relaxed Arrowe Brook Farm Tipi wedding reception.
Been busy editing but been longing to share this blog post
An early 11.30 am ceremony meant early preps for our bride and bridesmaids – and not forgetting Stacey and Dan’s two adorable boys
Plenty of candid moments at Stacey’s mum and dad’s with everyone, Clearly a very devoted family.
A lovely emotional moment with dad when he saw his beautiful daughter in her bridal gown.
Great service from Lisa of Elegance Bridal in Bebbington who not only helped her into her dress but did a last-minute finishing alteration,
plus helped her into the car (which was a bit tricky!) and out of it when arriving at the church.
Church Ceremony Christchurch Port Sunlight
Christchurch is a beautiful church in historic Port Sunlight, with the longest aisle on the Wirral. Always a popular church.
The new minister here is so welcoming and helpful to photographers allowing photography from the front and the back of the aisle.
Stacey’s ruffled fishtail dress looked fabulous from the back of the church
There was a slight drizzle on the way in but as Stacey and Dan exited it was sunshine and shades were on!
A few family pics and then a red bus whisked the guests off to Arrowe Brook farm for the tipi reception
Arrowe Brook Farm Tipi Wedding Reception
So the bus arrived at Arrowe Brook Farm with guests spilling out to enjoy more welcome drinks – the bus had been stocked too with supplies!
Arrowe Brook Farm is a brilliant location for a tipi or marquee wedding. It’s also a camping and caravan site so it has toilet facilities on site.
Not many know about this place – bit of a hidden gem, but we have shot here a couple of times beforehand.
Bride and groom and several guests were staying over and the tipis set up by All About Me Marquee and Events looked fabulous in the sunshine
Lots of photo opportunities on the farm for bride and groom portraits.
with such a big group it was ideal to capture the big group shot in front of the tipi – followed by some impromptu informal group shots
Such a happy relaxed day – it just flowed perfectly, no time constraint pressure and everyone was enjoying themselves immensely.
The bbq food provided by local caterers Manna Food was plentiful and superb. – thank you for the hospitality!
The table names were drinks with the corresponding spirit bottle and rustic design with a pallet table plan and a gorgeous cake from Iced Inspirations atop a barrel
Just see how happy Stacey is!
After the cake cut Stacey and Dan enjoyed a stroll for some evening pics before the night dancing took place.
DJ Mark Forde and the band had everyone rocking out – it was a late night but so enjoyable.
The lights in the tipi looked magical as night fell.
So honoured Stacey and Dan that you asked us to capture your amazing day.
The early ceremony meant guests could really enjoy a long day together with you – and they certainly did! – and not have the day rush by.
Just the type of wedding we love.
Wishing you and your lovely family much health and happiness.
Love Dave & Sandy xx
