A long-awaited Doubletree Hilton Chester wedding of Abbie and Scott for Pixsmiths just last month. When your sister is sparkly queen Vikki of Wirral Weddings and a much sought after venue dresser – Sapphire Bespoke Events – you know the venue will look amazing. She certainly didn’t disappoint. The staff at Doubletree Hilton also remarked how fabulous it looked. The changes for the ceremony, the wedding breakfast and the evening were perfectly co-ordinated.
Not only dressed the venue – and matched the décor with her bridesmaid’s dress but being in the wedding industry new the right suppliers for her sister. Pixsmiths were honoured to be asked along with all the other amazing suppliers who contributed to this wonderful wedding day. Unbeknownst to Abbie, Scott had been poorly in hospital early hours of the morning. Being so unselfish though he didn’t want to worry his bride. When we found out we just said, take things at your own pace, rest if necessary. We always let our couple drive the day and not us. You really wouldn’t know it from the pics though the story behind the day. Abbie and Scott, you just beamed all day xx Enjoy your highlights x
Proud dad was bowled over by how gorgeous and radiant Abbie looked in her gown by Opulence. (sadly now closed)
Likewise, the bridesmaids and flower girl were equally impressed. Soon it was time to head down for the ceremony to a waiting Scott.
Beautiful ceremony, accompanied by classy violin playing from Vioinaround
We did have a bit of a downpour but Doubletree Hilton Chester has good options for groups indoors in its light and airy conservatory. The boardwalk by the lake and the fountain was far too slippery to risk walking on. However, we did have a tiny window of dry weather and some blue skies so we grabbed a few outdoor portraits and you can see how happy Abbie and Scott were. Plus the rain provided puddles for reflections!
How stunning does this room look, the huge trees, flower arches and candles …more candles Vikki kept saying, when checking the venue dressing – created an amazing atmosphere The burgundy colour scheme and sparkly golden tablecloths created such a warm cosy feel. A perfect setting for the wedding breakfast
Abbie and Scott are both gingers, so gingerbread was an appropriate wedding favour The wooden cutouts for guests names worked so well too
Impressive cake by Kingfisher cakes
Time before the evening partying kicked off to have a quiet moment in a cool area of Doubletree Hilton
Great Dj and music from Rock Revolution to keep the guests entertained Abbie changed into another sparkly for dancing in after the first dance and for enjoying a sparkler sendoff..
Thank you Abbie and Scott for the pleasure of covering your day. Wishing you every future happiness and look forward to the next chapter of your lives. Love Sandy & Dave xx Big shout out to all the amazing suppliers too who made this such a memorable treasured day for you.

Oh Danielle and Dennis what a glorious day and time we had with you at your Kings Church Wedding we loved every second! Your welcoming home church where you worship. Such warm hearted people and church family to support you The church was transformed by the Wedding Collection from Moreton and your personal touches Their order of service was a clever fusion of the colours of their national flags morphed onto their figures. A beautiful violinist played prior to the ceremony which was filled with heartfelt worship songs and a special message Emotions running high, Dannielle, trembling as she bravely walked down the aisle by herself (her family in brazil) to her waiting Dennis Such looks of love and pride you gave each other, made our hearts swell too!
From the moment we met we warmed to each other and was evident their pictures were very important to them. Definitely our type of couple! They deliberately chose an early ceremony on our advice for the time of year to give plenty of time for their pictures without rushing yet still being with friends. Time to mingle with their guests and enjoy a finger buffet and cake and sweets – very important in Brazilian customs! before we left for Port Sunlight The beautifully package favours of BEMN-CASADO represent the sweet union, sealed with love and mutual respect. According to Brazilian custom it has magical powers. Every guest who tastes a BEM-CASADO will be blessed with the same happiness as the newly weds…just have to make a wish before the first bite.
They wanted to factor a good time in good light for their portraits in Port Sunlight so we had a good 2 hours to hop around to several locations The tin cans rattling behind on Denni’s car told of their joy on their wedding date and fusion of their Brazilian and Welsh nationalities Onto the Village Hotel Bromborough to rejoin with their guests for evening dancing and more cake! A wonderful day of celebration of the marriage of such a warm hearted loving couple. Danielle and Dennis we wish you much joy in this new chapter of your love story. We trust these images will provide you with lasting memories. Sandy & Dave xx
ooh it had been a while since we met Jemma and Daniel to discuss their Liverpool wedding photography We chatted about their plans and loved the story of how Daniel proposed with he help of their adorable twin girls Rowing boat trip in the lake district and Daniel asks Jemma to get something out of a bag. T-shirt from the twins saying “Mummy will you marry Daddy“? How cute was that! Well of course Jemma said yes! and so they started to plan their day
Liverpool Wedding Preps
Jemma and Daniel were getting ready round the comer from each other so it was easy to cover both bride and groom preps Jemma’s at her mum’s room was the busier with a total of 10 bridesmaids and flower girls so it kept us occupied! jemma was super organised and already had hair and make up done when we arrived some 3 hours before the ceremony Still lots of details and candids to capture before they left for the church it was great to chat to the girls and to get to know them ahead of the day
Liverpool Wedding Ceremony
The ceremony took place at the renowned St Peter’s in Woolton. many visit here for the grave of Eleanor Rigby of Beatles fame and also the resting place of Bob Paisley, former Liverpool Football club manager. In fact one of his sons is the verger at St Peter’s Today was all about celebrating a wedding though and we loved the banner greeting everyone as they entered this beautiful church Delighted to be able to capture the reactions from in front and behind at this church Jemma looked stunning in her dress with its gorgeous lace sleeve detail and all those bridesmaids supporting her Daniel got to twirl in front of the guests in his dapper blue suit before Jemma entered Emotional singing by one of the bridesmaids during the signing of the register, think a few tears were shed Soon all the guests were spilling outside to enjoy the sunshine. few formal groups done and confetti exit to the reception
Liverpool Wedding Reception – Devonshire House
The reception was taking place at the Devonshire House Hotel on Edge Lane on the way we made the short stop to Reynolds Park – just a few mins from the church A favourite place of Jemma and Daniels and the sunken garden and walled garden were perfect for some time for them to relax from the guests and to capture some gorgeous relaxed portraits for them. The Devonshire House was a good option to have the large group shot so with the kind assistance of Les McGrath all the guests went outside for a quick pic The room had lots of ambience with its purple/pink up lighting. Jemma and Daniel looked like Royalty on their top table thrones too! Fish and chips before the speeches and an Chinese buffet for after the dance wen down really well Well entertained with the band too – everyone had a great time on the dance floor
Thank you Jemma and Daniel for asking us to capture your day – glad it was everything you wanted and we enjoyed being with you and your guests wishing you much happiness and love Sandy & Dave xx
Ah what a lovely early autumn 4748 Hamilton Square wedding for Jenny and Paul Such a loving warm couple, their love was evident in their expressions throughout the day and was such a joy to behold. We enjoyed a relaxed morning for the bridal preps (really wanted to steal Jenny’s cat amber into my camera bag – she did try!) The bridesmaids dresses were beautiful and sparkly and loved all the personalised hangers Some quick getting dressed shots before we headed off to St Stephens in Prenton to meet the men ahead of the ceremony Ample grounds at the church for some formal groups – always a good idea to do this when travelling onto a venue as guests can arrive and relax with a drink We were so delighted that we were recommended for this wedding by Jenny’s good friend Vikki Jane Sweeney the blinq queen! Vikki did an amazing job of decorating the venue, 4748 Hamilton Square, it was gorgeous and twinkly Vikki really did exceed what Jenny had imagined. for her reception 4748 Hamilton Square weddings are well organised, hosted in twin Grade I Listed Georgian buildings in historic Hamilton Square, Birkenhead. 4748 Hamilton square is licenced for civil ceremonies and is also handily placed for Town hall weddings being just 100 metres from Wirral Registry Office.
