Brook Hall Wedding: Dawn and Sean

Brook Hall Wedding: Dawn and Sean

Travel Themed Brook (Meadow) Hall Wedding for Dawn and Sean

So much to enjoy about this travel themed Brook Hall (formerly Brook Meadow) wedding of Sean and Dawn.
A sunny August Bank Holiday weekend – a rarity it itself!
Sean and Dawn have been together 11 years and travelled to many destinations together so it formed a natural theme for their fabulous day.
A gorgeous green and brown coloured theme, the decor in their home matched perfectly too for the bridal prep details, obviously inspirational for the colour scheme.

The Girls!

Sea’s three daughters were his “Best Men”  they not only looked fabulous in their jackets from Slaters, white trousers and green tie ribbon matching the bridesmaids colour, but also were well organised helping with the big group as well as enjoying swigs from their hip flasks to help calm any nerves at  the church with their dad and checking times with their pocket watches.
The church,  St Oswalds in Bidston is a friendly place and there was even a banner up about being together on a journey.
The vicar is well known for his singing and during the registry signing sang “Come fly with Me” ..so appropriate for Sean and Dawn!

Brook Hall Hotel Reception

Onto  Brookmeadow, now renamed as Brook Hall, and beautifully updated in a contemporary style, befitting the owners of Sheldrakes who now run this venue.
Brook Hall has an idyllic setting in the Childer Thornton, Cheshire countryside.  Truly a wonderful Cheshire wedding venue.  So many opportunities for stunning portraits around iis gardens
and stone bridge over the brook towards teh bottom of the gardens.  Outdoor weddings can take place here too

The tables at Brookmeadow were artistically decorated with travel memorabilia from various countries they had visited …and the anecdotes from their travels during teh speeches were hilarious..on the lines ..we went here, Dawn doesn’t like flying, scuba diving etc.. all the things Sean loved…so opposites do attract!  It ended with Dean saying he like to be punctual …Dawn was a wee bit late at the church ..well it is the bride’s prerogative 😉

The Matt magician worked the tables during the reception and in between meal courses went down a treat, kept all the guest entertained. Whilst in the evening the band Route 66 had the dance floor rocking.
A wonderful day for Sean and DAwn and we thank you that we could capture all the days events for you.
Wishing you many more years of happiness.

Peel Hey Wedding Celebration: Lynne and Stuart

Peel Hey Wedding Celebration: Lynne and Stuart

Stuart and Lynne’s Post Destination Peel Hey Wedding Celebration

Stuart and Lynne had a sunny Bank Holiday for their Peel Hey wedding celebration party in their marquee.
Lovebirds Stuart and Lynne have been together 21 years and recently got married in Mexico (ah wish we could have been there too!).
Romantics ourselves we just loved this couple who epitomise that love is ageless and romance is alive and kicking.

Peel Hey, in Greasby, Wirral  is a delightful venue and luxury b an B with its cosy gardens and marquee and of course there are also rooms here for tjhose wishing to stay over.
The sun shone for them just as it did in Mexico!.  We took various group photos and portraits of the happy couple before leaving them to enjoy their meal.
Each group Lynne said, these are my friends…she has a lot of friends, what a great crowd of people!
Such a delightful way to spend a couple of hours on August Bank Holiday Sunday with Stuart and Lynne.
We hadn’t met Lynne before the Peel Hey wedding but were instantly greeted with warmth, such a bubbly personality, we had an instant rapport.
The flowers from Lyndaflora were vibrant and colour, so suited for an exotic destination wedding and also the purple of the bridesmaids.
Cameo cakes did a fantastic job with the birdcage cake and cupcakes, they looked mouth-wateringly good!

Stuart and Lynne were generous  enough to share their day with two party girls too at their Peel hey Wedding party.
Thank you Stuart and Lynne that we could capture your evident joy at your Peel Hey wedding celebration and wish you many more happy years together

Marcos New York Italian Hoylake Wedding: Kate and Tim

Marcos New York Italian Hoylake Wedding: Kate and Tim

We just love weddings at Marcos New York Italian Hoylake. Its so local to us we are often happy t do short hour weddings here,.just like this one for Kate and Tim.
Love the mirrors and golden coppery tomes of the room, makes for fab colours and reflective shots.
We covered just prior to ceremony, the ceremony itself, groups and portraits on location and then the speeches after the meal.
Spot the familiar face amongst the bridesmaids! Venue wedding coordinator Carrie had the honour of being one of the bridesmaids, being Tim’s sister.
Its always an emotional time during ceremonies and Kate did warn us that she might get a little choked ..but we always love to capture the moments of the day
Needless to say everything ran smoothly and a wonderful time was had by all.   The weather was mostly fine, we just dodged around  a rain shower before they went in for the wedding breakfast.
The gardens are compact  but good for group shots in front of the venue and portraits in the greenery of  the garden..with longer hours its just a short ride to Red Rocks or Hoylake promenade.
We popped back just to cover their dance for half an hour or so for them too.  Many congratulations Kate and Tim, wishing you much happiness xx

Winter Wedding Shoot: Belle Epoque

Winter Wedding Shoot: Belle Epoque

Winter Wedding at  Belle Epoque – Rocking the Rain 

Winter weddings and dark venues provide their own unique challenges and we wanted to expand our skills with new lighting techniques and chance to try new things out.
We like to constantly update our skill sets and portfolio without experimenting on an actual wedding so Jonny Draper’s trainging session “Are you afraid of the Dark” was an ideal opportunity.
So a drizzzly Novemebr evening we found ourselves at the Belle Epoque in Knutsford, renowned for being a difficult dark venue.
We were thrilled to discover that Sarah Sadler and her finance Rich would be modelling for us and generally being the loved up couple they are! Sarah herself is a fabulous photographer, she does such amazing, makeover, empowering Red Shoe Shoots – you really need to check out her site, read her about page and read real women’s stories…..so the shoe was on the other foot (pardon the pun!) and Sarah and Rich were in front of the camera, feeling a bit nervous and vulnerable…but everyone soon put them at ease.  They were great and with Jonny explaiining and showing his simple lighting set ups we got some great shots …we even rocked the rain!  Check out these shots!
