Festive Winter Wedding Inglewood Manor: Penny & David

Non Traditional Festive Winter Inglewood Manor Wedding Photography

Oh such a festive winter wedding at Inglewood Manor, The rooms beautifully decked and adorned with garlands and several Christmas trees.
So many gorgeous details. The snow cake with penguins and polar bear and topped with a gingerbread house.  Really fitting for the festive theme.
Oh and our couple were blooming amazing too, totally non-traditional enjoying a first look before the ceremony and then walking down the aisle together.

Inglewood Manor Wedding First Look

It was such a lovely moment to capture and see their reactions when David turned around and saw Penny for the first time in her shimmering Monsoon wedding dress
Penny had cleverly accessorised the back of her dress herself with a string of pearls.  The dress was  stunning and so fitting for Penny
So relaxed with each other, it was a delight to see and we loved their many giggles!

Inglewood Manor Wedding Portraits

We took advantage of the light before the ceremony seeing as it was a late ceremony and would be dark afterwards being a Winter Inglewood Wedding
Inglewood has so many areas to take portraits we could avoid being overlooked by guests arriving for the wedding ceremony.

We left them to have a few moments alone before the registrars cam to check their details before the wedding ceremony
Guests meanwhile had been gathering and enjoying canapes and then entered the Executive Suite (the oak panelled room)
Parents and Groomsmen, Bridesmaids and flower girl and page boy entered first before Penny and David finally entered, walking in together and looking so radiant
The Bridesmaids carrying lanterns which really fitted the Christmas theme.
A beautiful intimate family wedding, vows made and then what a kiss!  \Soon time for the happy couple to exit for their mulled wine toast

Inglewood Manor Wedding Reception

There were a few groups but with plenty of time set aside and great cooperation, they were soon done.  Family pictures are so important, especially when families had travelled far and wide, many from New Zealand to be her for Penny and David. The staircase is a lovely option for photos for small groups but for larger ones we used the side room with its beautiful Christmas tree and whitish walls.

There was  plenty of time to mingle before the guests moved down to the Burton Suite so festively set up for the wedding breakfast and not just with the Christmas decorations
The table centrepieces were cute miniature winter scenes in fish bowls, all carefully painted by Penny herself – how creative!

Christmas wedding Inglewood Manor

There were several speeches – Father of Bride, Mother of Groom, Groom, Bestman and Bride’s sister! we love to capture the emotion and reactions during these.
Plenty of emotion, laughter and toasts to enjoy. The speeches were before the meal and afterwards, we left the party to enjoy their food and to continue the celebrations into the evening.
This was one of our short coverage twilight weddings and shows just how much can be captured in a few hours if you don’t require your photographers all day.

Of course, we took a couple of signature ring shots that we love to do – the bar in the Burton Suite made for a fab reflection and colour for the rings – how unusual are they!

Arrowebrook Wirral Farm Wedding: Rachael and Josh

So been looking forward to blogging Rachael and Josh’s fun filled Arrowebrook Farm Wedding!
The rain at the  Birkenhead Town Hall ceremony did not dampen their spirits for long…no sooner had we done the group shot with umbrellas the sun came out! Typical!The Town Hall at Birkenhead is a beautiful Georgian building and the ceremony room upstairs with its stained glass windows is befitting of the building.  Its worth asking for this ceremony room.
Rachael looked stunning in her 50’s style vintage dress with red polka dot Iron Fist Shoes. Josh in his waistcoat and blue checked shirt and yellow tie suited the part too for a laid back wedding.
We grabbed a few shots inside and out before heading on the vintage bus to take us all to Arrowebrook Farm.  The marquee was provide by Got it covered (now Astra Marquees) and with plenty of space around in the farm field everyone had room to run around.  Cakes galore and ice tea added to the hog roast meal….the alcoholic jager bomb shots came later!  Loved the “snap it, shake it, sign it, peg it” Polaroid picture board, so unique and all the guests had great fun taking images as a memorable keepsake.  The evening was all about the country band which went down a storm, the dance floor was rocking.  This was such a great party and we so enjoyed mixing with the guests and capturing the fun of the day.  Rachael and Josh thank you for such an amazing day we wish you all the happiness in the world xx
