Mere Brook House Photographer: Jill & Chris
Family Mere Brook House Wedding
We love stories with a happy ending. When our good neighbors asked us to be Mere Brook House Photographers for their university friends Jill and Chris we were delighted to accept.
The day was all about family and connecting with various groups of friends form their work and school days.
The day started damp and rainy but thankfully the sun made an appearance after the indoor ceremony and photos could take place outside.
Mere Brook House is ideal for intimate weddings, It’s a venue we are familiar with having attended several weddings and events here.
A beautiful country house, an award-winning bed and breakfast establishment. We love the relaxed style here and fantastic food served the mere Brook House way.
Second helpings from their kitchen, always encouraged!
Some more unusual guests at mere Brook House!
Jill and Chris knew each other from years back at University. Life took different courses for them both but in recent years saw them reconnect.
Not a dry eye for the ceremony as Jill made her entrance with her two granddaughters in a special unique way.
One of her granddaughters was playing on the trumpet., Jill and both granddaughters then processed down the aisle, where the other granddaughter sang the tune her sister was playing, “Somewhere over the rainbow”
It really was a special moment for all to witness, not only for friends and family but for us as Mere Brook House wedding photographers.
Jill was looking radiant in her silvery-white sparkly dress, so suited for this occasion.
Vows were soon made and then time for celebrating and chatting before having a few pics before the meal.

Brook Hall Outdoor Wedding
This was a laugh a minute Brook Hall Outdoor wedding for Mary and Gary.
One of the hottest August Bank Holiday weekend. Ever.
So privileged to capture your day guys, so much fun, even if it was hot…cue fans and air-con on al day.
Historic Brook Hall is situated in beautiful countryside and gorgeous gardens. Perfect for your wedding.
Indoor ceremonies can take place in the old chapel.
The girls from the wedding collection Wirral were busy setting up the chairs for the outdoor ceremony whilst groom and bridal preps were ongoing.
MJ and her sisters were a hoot, so lots of laughter. Some relative calm in the bridal suite where MJ got into her amazing Maggie Sottero dress from Elegance Bridal
Lisa was on hand to help MJ with this – do love this fitting service.
Brook Hall Outdoor Ceremony
The Outdoor ceremony was set up on the big lawn, due to the number of guests.
So vows were made here and then MJ and Gary and their witnesses had to go to the bottom of the garden to the Brook gazebo to repeat the vows under cover to legalise it.
So …make sure you add on extra time if you opt for this scenario. Then back to the lawn to sign the registers in front of all their guests.
MJ and Gary then danced down the aisle, beaming smiles and laughter all the way.
Brook Hall Reception
Wayne Farrow Wedding Singer was on hand to perform through the ceremony He has an amazing voice we later got to capture his action during the reception.
has to be seen – it’s amazing the way he gets everyone involved, dancing and singing and having an amazing time. Some of the best wedding entertainment we have witnessed ..and captured.
Not surprised he is very much in demand – you need to book early to secure his services.
certainly kept us on our toes in between gulping our food down. So glad our Video colleage Rob Whibley was on hand to video the action too.
Can’t wait to see the footage but hope you get the gist from the some of the many pictures here. Again the ladies from Wedding Collection had set out the room beautifully
The fun continued in the evening with Wayne singing or the First Dances _ Mj with her FAther and then her new husband.
The dance floor was kept busy with a brilliant sax player and entertainment with Pixelbooth Magic Mirror – guests were having a great time with that.
Thank you MJ and Gary for all the laughter on your day – wish you many more years of happiness.

Kings Gap Hoylake: Wedding Vow Renewal
Julie & Loll Star Wars Silver Wedding Renewal
Julie and Loll held a beautiful Kings Gap Hoyalke wedding vow renewal recently. Julie decided to plan things a bit differently from her original wedding.
She had planned meticulously and researched so Pixsmiths were delighted o be asked to capture some memories here for them
For her silver wedding vow renewal, it was a relaxed outdoor ceremony at Kings Gap Hoylake. The sun was out in force! – how suited for their star wars themed event.
Julie wore a stunning silver tulle and satin dress. The colour was so fitting for this occasion. A beautiful ceremony conducted by a local Pastor Peter from Irby Emmanuel.
So much packed into the day for them: Star wars cake, light sabers and ribbons and outdoor lawn games for the kids.
The light sticks make for a great group tunnel picture.
We had beautiful owls visit from the owl rescue sanctuary. All the guests loved the owls and enjoyed having pictures with them.
Even a mishap with owl poo didn’t phase Julie, all was dealt with efficiently. Such beautiful birds.
Even more entertainment was planned later in the evening with magician, photo booth and ice cream from Isabelle Ices
There was even an ice sculpture vodka luge to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary
It certainly was a jam-packed day for all. Before all that, we managed to whisk our couple away for some gorgeous couple portraits on the nearby beach at Red Rocks
What a start to the August Bank Holiday weekend. One full of sunshine. So happy for you Julie and Loll, we wish you many more years of happiness.
Hope you enjoy your highlights from the time we had with you. Much love Dave & Sandy xx
even the sweet table had star wars themed names!
Laidback Boho Birkenheadl Town Hall Wedding
Boho Birkenhead Town Hall Wedding
Jo and Libby just wanted a laidback Wirral wedding and it was a pleasure to capture their day in their own unique way.
They opted for a small Town Hall wedding and then back home for an afternoon tea reception with friends and family.
It suited them perfectly. No big fuss did want to be centre of attention.
Pixsmiths are happy to capture larger weddings as well as these smaller intimate ones
Ceremony at Birkenhead Town Hall – the smaller downstairs room is used midweek and it was packed out to see this lovely couple say their vows.
Libby arrived with her dad and maid of honour. Loved how her jacket over her dress was the same colour as Joe’s suit.
Her hand-tied thistle and lilac bouquet really suited this style of the wedding too
With the gold leaves in hair adorning her long golden locks it was quite a Boho Birkenhead Town Hall wedding.
We had captured Joe and his family ahead of the service and it was wonderful to see her greeting Joe with a big hug as she entered in on her father’s arms
Joe’s son did splendidly reading a long poem for them and handing over the rings during the vows
Few salient family groups and confetti shot captured and then time for some gorgeous couple shot utilising the Georgian architecture around Hamilton Square.
Back at their home food and wine and conversation was flowing as guest enjoyed their quaint courtyard garden.
Everyone had a great time and glad it stayed dry for the festivities.
Thank you, Libby and Joe, for asking us to capture your wedding.
It was a special few hours with you and hope you enjoy these highlights.
Wishing you much happiness, Dave & Sandy xx
Just to be different – and why not – Libby had two engagement rings, including a beautiful antique one
Pixsmiths are often available for short midweek packages such as this. If you only require a few hours but still want a quality service and good turnaround times for your images we need to chat!

Sparkly Cristal Suite Thornton Hall Wedding
We so looked forward to this Cristal Thronton Hall Wedding, and it didn’t disappoint.
Ever since Sophie contacted us, such a heartwarming email, we knew we were the perfect match for each other, to capture their wedding story
Sophie had been searching for her perfect photographers and came across our website.
I love how natural your photos are capturing such special moments. It feels like this is exactly what we have been looking for! Our wedding is 27th July 2019
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that you are free and available to shoot our day!
How lovely is that! A meeting was set and Sophie’s bubbly nature won our hearts, a sparkly wedding was on the cards!
Their wedding in 3 words was laughing romantic and happy and it certainly lived up to that.
Don’t t think these too stopped laughing and smiling all day long.
Bridal & Groom Preps
Sophie had a whole army of bridemaids and flower girls to support her.
Made sense for them to have their pampering done at a local salon, The Colour bar in Oxton did a fantastic job and the tone of the day was set with the prosecco flowing.
Back to her parental home for final finishes, and then getting into her fairytale wedding dress by Opulence and sparkly shoes. Oh my those sparkly Crystal Queen shoes were Sophie to a T!
You really are a sparkly princess bride
Meanwhile the guys were getting ready at their brand new home.
Ceremony St Saviours Oxton
The ceremony was held at St Saviours in Oxton. The lady minister there was very welcoming. Plus anyone who gives chocolate as a gift is a winner too!
Plenty of space and freedom to walk (quietly) around the aisles to get carious angles during the service
One of the bridesmaids (one of our brides for next year) read a beautiful poem from a nan who sadly could not be present.
Brought a lump to my throat.
Soon it was time to exit, the sun was out and group photos were quickly undertaken so everyone could get to the party
Cristal Thornton Hall Wedding Reception
As we can see Sophie loves all things sparkly and bling so the Cristal Suite at Thornton Hall was the perfect choice for the wedding reception
Its Crystal chandeliers and ornate metal ceiling panels adds luxuriousness and opulence such a bride can only dream of.
The beautiful setup in the Cristal Suite took their breath away when it was revealed to them.
Lots of laughter in speeches and more merriment in the evening with the fabulous Tequila to entertain everyone
Great party atmosphere and a wonderfully memorable day for everyone.
Sophie and Robbie thank you for the joy of capturing your day, for all the laughter and giggles.
We wish you even more happiness in the years to come. Much love Sandy & Dave
Sophie – I know you are obsessed with our blogs – so hope you enjoy yours xx
Opulence – bridal gown

Paleokastritsa, Corfu Destination Wedding
Tammi & Dave’s Greek wedding
A glorious Paleokastritsa Corfu Destination wedding.
If you are looking for a relaxed Greek destination wedding in a stunning location in the most scenic part of Corfu Island then look no further.
Pixsmiths were honored to be invited to capture Tammi and Dave’s wedding here. All the guests so enjoyed this stunning part of Corfu.
So many apartment options, friendly locals and oh my the food in the oh so many tavernas!
Paleokastritsa is situated on the beautiful northwest of Corfu and yes the water is really that colour. The village has a number of bays and coves – best appreciated by boat.
Especially beautiful at sunset on a boat trip to visit the caves – just as this wedding party did the night before
Also worth a visit is the peaceful authentic greek village of Lakones just above Paleokastritsa in the hills.
Tammi and Dave stayed in apartments near their chosen wedding venue Acapulco Pool Bar Acapulco bar has amazing views over toward Liapdeds beach which you can swim across to from here.
The staff at Acapulco Bar are really friendly and helpful. They have organised several weddings here so can advise on plans for your day.
Bride & Groom Preps
Preparations for the day were taking place in a differing apartment so we covered both as the girls and the guys got ready.
Dave could simply stroll down the road to Acapulco Bar. Tammi’s journey was more eventful.
A trip to the harbour, where serenaded by musicians, Tammi her mum and maids boarded a Paleoseamaster boat to take her on a short sea journey to the venue
Such a scenic way to arrive! Several steps to climb up and a little tricky getting off the boat at Acapulco landing stage bt helping hands were there.
Tammi and her party made their way up to a waiting Dave. Just loved his reaction when he saw her – think the sunglasses were hiding a few emotions!
Ceremony Acapulco Bar
The ceremony was intimate and beautiful. The celebrant gave the vows and a poignant poem, penned by Dave’s sister was given
Soon there were hugs and kisses, prosecco, and beer to celebrate with the happy couple.
Family groups flowed and portraits were taken in the olive grove behind and with those glorious views
Acapulco Bar wedding reception
The reception took place just beyond the pool area with the hills as a backdrop
The food at Acapulco is amazing – they also own Taverna Ellia – definitely worth a visit whilst in Paleokastritsa
Naturally, then the food for the wedding was delicious and plentiful and the wine was flowing.
Greek dancers entertained the gusts and got all involved in the fun.
The evening progressed into the bar area for dancing and merriment
Absolutely perfect relaxed wedding, enjoyed by all.
Tammi and Dave thank you so much for giving us this opportunity to capture your Corfu Destination wedding
We so enjoyed being with you and your family and friends at this special time.
We were all so at ease with each other. We know you will never forget this day and neither will we.
These are just a few of the images taken that will bring back all the memories in years to come.
much love Dave & Sandy xx
