Rob & Rebecca’s wedding with Pearls, Dinosaurs and Sunny Skies!

It seems we have spent the beginning of 2018 wedding season  with Liverpool city centre weddings! We were delighted to be back in Liverpool city centre at the iconic home of the Titanic 30 James St. A beautiful city centre hotel run by Signature living.  Rebecca the wedding co-coordinator runs a well oiled ship and things ran so smoothly. Rob and Rebecca live in the city and 30 James St was a favourite place for them  – so perfect choice for their day.

Work colleagues is where the friendship and then romance started – can’t get much more romantic than a proposal in New York and letting your bride choose a ring on 5th Avenue – like your style Rob!  Fast forward from all the planning and the day was here, a bright but cool day in March. We survived running around Liverpool covering Bride and Groom preps with closed roads for the Liverpool half marathon.  Rebecca was chilled out being pampered and enjoying trying out the new floss dance with her flower girls and page boy.  Rebecca’s details were elegant pearls in her headpiece, bracelet and earings.

Liverpool City Centre Wedding Ceremony

Getting to 30 James St for the Liverpool city centre wedding ceremony was relatively easier than the preps. With the co-ordinator organising her team and the toastmaster organising the guests all went smoothly for Rebecca’s arrival and entrance for a waiting, slightly nervous Rob.  The venue  was beautifully decorated with white, cream and green flowers and the aisle lined with candles and the iconic white star emblem on the floor.  The white star and ivory heart frame made for an elegant backdrop – supplied by Penelope Petal.  A well thought out  ceremony with the two mothers lighting candles that Rob and Rebecca would use to light their larger central one.  Close friends read poems  – fittingly for Rebecca’s love of dinosaurs one  was the dinosaur poem.
Rebecca’s nephew carefully carried handed over the rings,  the look of concentration of his  face as he  watched  was a picture!
Soon the new Mr and Mrs were having a celebratory kiss and walking down the aisle and getting drinks to toast each other

With over a hundred guests and very harsh sunlight on the steps it was more practical to do the large group indoors followed by a few family formals.
With reception drinks being upstairs in the Carpathian lounge, to allow for room turnaround, it makes sense to let people  go when their groups are finished with.

Livererpool City Centre Wedding Portraits

Rob and Rebecca love the city scene so Liverpool city centre portraits  were our next port of call.
The Three Graces were splendidly lit up in the bright sunshine for some gorgeous backdrops and a bus driver very kindly drove around the block so we could capture a memorable reflection in Mann Island buildings.  How amazing are  the liverpudlians!  Soon it was time to head back to join the guests for some mingling time before the speeches and grab a few shots on the balcony with the dock views.

30 James St Reception

The reception are looked fabulous the tables had favours of cupcakes, the table names were dinosaurs and names or guests pettily set out in a pearl encrusted frame on each table.  With father of bride, groom three best men, toastmaster and bride speeches we were well entertained before the meal was served.  A neat touch were the dinosaur pens ( a gift from two friends) for the guest signing book.
Together with the light up box  with their names and date, teh pens made for a unique wedding ring shot.  We love to incorporate a feature from teh wedding details.

Evening party

A stroll for some fresh air and a few more city centre portraits and then party time! …well except for popping out to capture some light trails that Rob and Rebecca had requested at our initial meeting.
Great to see the dance floor busy and guests trying out the new Floss dance!
Thank you so much Rob and Rebecca for the honour of capturing your day, for being so obliging with all the portraits. So happy you had the day you wanted and more. It was a wonderful day and we wish you much continued happiness and blessings for teh future.  Love   Sandy & Dave

Intimate Liverpool Town Hall Wedding: Jennie & Simon

Just last week  Pixsmiths had the pleasure of kicking off our 2018 wedding season with a delightful intimate Liverpool Town Hall wedding for Jennie and Simon
A cold brisk but dry day for the gathering of family at Liverpool’s Town Hall.  A splendid grade I listed building, one of the finest  Town Halls from the 18th century.
Situated in the heart of Liverpool’s cultural centre Its civic rooms are a complete example of late Georgian decoration with its portraits and chandeliers.
Well worth a tour – check out website for details.

Jennie and Simon booked us just a few weeks before their wedding – one of our special midweek packages we are available for.
So happy, even though a short  wedding package they appreciated having professional  quality images to mark their special day.
Dave happily captured the couples arrival.  Jennie with her mum who was  understandably emotional at her daughters’s wedding.
Jennie looking so elegant in her lace knee length dress with beautiful back button detail.
The bridal bouquet was a beautiful mix of purple flowers, white roses and thistles with green leaves interspersed.

City Chic Intimate Liverpool Town Hal Wedding

Jennie was pleasantly surprised to see the screen announcement in the foyer for their wedding
Soon it was time for the ceremony, such an elegant room befitting our couple.  Vows were made in front of their immediate family to much joy.
No bridesmaids of groomsmen just a simple beautiful couple and their family.
Ceremony captured and it was time for a few family groups and then couple emerged joyously for some couple shots before heading to 30 James St for their private meal.
The Chinese lanterns from the recent Chinese New Year celebrations added wonderful splash of red to the square along with the telephone boxes.

30 James St Reception

Only a short walk to 30 James St, but cold enough when you have a lace dress on, so not surprisingly Jennie was wrapped up in her coat.
Their room balcony made for some extra shots over the Liverpool skyline as Jennie and Simon  enjoyed the late February sunshine before they were left to enjoy their meal.
A table set up for their party was ideal for this city chic intimate wedding reception.

Many congratulations Jennie and Simon we wish you much happiness enjoy your blog highlights
love Sandy & Dave x
