What glorious weather we are having this Easter! Matt and Sue were acclimatising for their overseas wedding – they flew off yesterday. Now a trip to Mauritius would have been lovely but we are happy to be covering their blessing at St Mary’s in Upton, Wirral and evening celebration at the end of May. Time first this Easter Monday though for a pre-wed shoot as we enjoyed a walk and talk in West Kirby. We really are spoilt for locations with the park, the beach and the marina to choose from. We are just 2 minutes walk from the marina as are Matt and Sue who live just a couple of streets away from us. In fact we have another couple in the same road to them, marrying just a month later!
Sandy enjoyed using her new macro 105 mm prime lens – super sharp, with lovely boketh – for some sneaky close up shots. Great lens for portraits as well as ring shots! Always good to have a range of shots, so Dave kept to the main 24-70 lens. In case you think some of these scenes look familiar, yes this is where some of the filming for Candy Cabs was done!
Matt and Sue hope you enjoyed the session we look forward to seeing you on your return and capturing your wedding part 2 🙂
Pixsmiths were delighted to cover the wedding of Mark and Heddus at Rossett Hall, North Wales. A late Sunday afternoon wedding so we had plenty of time to arrive early and enjoy a delicious lunch at the Hotel’s Oscar’s Restaurant – the cheesecake was divine, worth a re-visit just for that alone.
The wedding was a sunny affair and the Welsh theme was vey evident in all the details. The colour scheme of red, green and ivory chosen to complement the colours of the Welsh flag. Mark and his best man had Welsh dragon cufflinks, Heddus said her vows in Welsh and Mark in English. Lovesppoons for the ladies and slate coasters for the men formed the table favours – the red dragon on the coasters made an ideal backing for a ring shot. The wedding rings were welsh gold clodau rings and had the welsh word for love “Carriad” inscribed inside – a specifc request for us to capture, and a good excuse to get a new macro lens 🙂 The table seating plan took te form of asmall bird cage, bedecked with colouful deatils and tags listing their family and friends. The welcome drinks even spelt out their names!
Heddus entered the ceremony with her daughter as the Welsh ladies choir, that Heddus belongs to, sang beautifully. Our thanks to the staff at Rossett Hall who made us welcome and gave us access to the room for the overhead group shot. A very joyous occasion and happy to capture those special moments. Wishing you both contined happiness for the future Mark and Heddus! Below are a few favourite images On-line gallery is now available too
Matt and Sue are off to Mauritius very soon for their wedding, shame we are not going with them but we will have the pleasure of covering their blessing once they return.
For now a sneak peak of a photo session we had with them this sunny Easter Monday.
A midday sea-mist across the Mersey and blue blue skies accompanied the wedding of Mike and Sarah at Wallasey Town Hall last Friday. Very considerate of Sarah to have hair colour to compliment our web site colours too! You looked stunning. Pixsmiths had the pleasure of capturing their memories on this lovely family occasion. A small reception was held at the OC Club in Bromborough before they sped off for a honeymoon weekend. Many congratulations to you Sarah and Mike, wishing you many more years of happiness.

Pixsmiths had a wonderful time with Jenny and Graham’s wedding, being blessed with a bright day and glorious daffodils in the woodland garden of Leasowe Castle. There were plenty more surprises to come too with the “Everton Blue” theme, bridesmaids dresses, cocktails and resultant blue tongues which made for a funny picture. Graham was surprised with a wedding card signed by all the Everton players…the look on his face was priceless so glad we captured that for him 🙂
Jenny a Blackpool lass looked radiant, her make-up was by Make -up artist of the Year, Amy Lewis. A born organiser, Jenny had meticulously made the table favours, seating plan and post box all co-ordinated with the blue bows. A pic’n’mix table added to the colour and they had their own sticks of rock and sweetie jars with their names and wedding date on. Very popular with all the adults! Jenny’s thoughtfulness was even evident in the ladies where a basket with perfumes, dry spray shampoos, plasters in case of blisters from the dancing all night long in heels.
Our thanks to to the staff at Leasowe Castle for their helpfulness and delicious meal provided by the chef – very tasty.
Many congratulations to you Jenny and Graham and wishing you even more happiness in the years to come.
On-line gallery is now available – enjoy!
