Jo and Libby just wanted a laidback Wirral wedding and it was a pleasure to capture their day in their own unique way. They opted for a small Town Hall wedding and then back home for an afternoon tea reception with friends and family. It suited them perfectly. No big fuss did want to be centre of attention. Pixsmiths are happy to capture larger weddings as well as these smaller intimate ones
Ceremony at Birkenhead Town Hall – the smaller downstairs room is used midweek and it was packed out to see this lovely couple say their vows. Libby arrived with her dad and maid of honour. Loved how her jacket over her dress was the same colour as Joe’s suit. Her hand-tied thistle and lilac bouquet really suited this style of the wedding too With the gold leaves in hair adorning her long golden locks it was quite a Boho Birkenhead Town Hall wedding.
We had captured Joe and his family ahead of the service and it was wonderful to see her greeting Joe with a big hug as she entered in on her father’s arms Joe’s son did splendidly reading a long poem for them and handing over the rings during the vows Few salient family groups and confetti shot captured and then time for some gorgeous couple shot utilising the Georgian architecture around Hamilton Square.
Back at their home food and wine and conversation was flowing as guest enjoyed their quaint courtyard garden. Everyone had a great time and glad it stayed dry for the festivities.
Thank you, Libby and Joe, for asking us to capture your wedding. It was a special few hours with you and hope you enjoy these highlights. Wishing you much happiness, Dave & Sandy xx
Just to be different – and why not – Libby had two engagement rings, including a beautiful antique one
Pixsmiths are often available for short midweek packages such as this. If you only require a few hours but still want a quality service and good turnaround times for your images we need to chat! Don’t hesitate to get in touch for a special quote
Natasha & Sam’s Intimate Birkenhead Town Hall Ceremony
Sometimes all that is required is a simple intimate Birkenhead Town Hall ceremony. Its just about getting married with those dearest around you and having a meal afterwards. Then of course jet of to the Maldives for a fabulous honeymoon. So happy for you guys you had the day you wanted your way and it stayed dry and bright if a bit cold!
Birkenhead Town Hall is set in the beautiful Georgian Hamilton Square. No two sides alike and the large space being left for the imposing Town Hall Not many realise but the ceremony upstairs is large and with beautiful stained glass windows. The lower first floor is home to the local war museum and history of the area – worth a visit sometime
Its was a cool day but we made the most of the April blossom in the square. Natasha looked simply elegant in her ASOS long sleeved low back fitted wedding dress. So many photo opportunities within the confines of Hamilton Square – the green lawn in front, the blossom, the colonnades on the upper Town Hall an street scenes around. Natasha and Sam your abundant joy and chemistry was really special to witness and thank you for allowing us to capture these salient memories of your day
Just last Saturday Pixsmiths were invited to a Civil ceremony Birkenhead Town Hall and reception afterwards of Anne and Ken The day was dry but grey but Anne and Ken and their family and friends made this a colourful and joyful event. No snow as such …even if there was Anne and Ken would soon melt it – sizzling! Originally planned just before Christmas Anne and Ken were so disappointed to have to cancel that date but this time it was systems go!
What a wonderful day it was too, such an excited bride, Anne was literally hopping up and down with happiness in the ceremony Anne’s daughters made gorgeous bridesmaids and so colourful in their apricot coloured dresses. Katey had been busy organising not only flowers and cake but also doing makeup and nails. All the girls looked amazing, gorgeous Anne’s grandson so smart as he proudly walked her down the aisle. Anne looked so elegant in her ivory dress from wed2be with matching jacket Such an endearing wedding, so romantic to see this couple so happy, dare I say like love-struck teenagers. Romance is timeless and beautiful to witness this couple’s special day
Informal reception followed at St Joseph’s in Wallassy were guests were entertained by Joanne Dennis with her powerful & beautiful voice and Markie James also singing beautifully and helping with favours Mike Jones & his close up, mind blowing magic; Joro with delicious vegan catering & Angie from St Joseph’s venue in Wallasey who made sure everything was just right for Anne and ken on their arrival.
This was such a joyful wedding of two beautiful people who deserve every happiness. Don’t think they stopped smiling all day long! It was our absolute privilege to share a few hours with them and capture some treasured memories
Jane and Elliot’s Relaxed Wedding at Village Hotel Bromborough
Its been a while since we had a wedding at Village Hotel Bromborough – and it nearly wasn’t here! Jane and Elliot’s reception was originally planned for 4748 Hamilton Square after their Town Hall wedding…but unfortunately they closed business. All ended well as we think their large group was more suited to the larger space for their wedding at Village Hotel Bromborough.
BRIDAL PREPS FOR WEDDING AT VILLAGE HOTEL BROMBOROUGH
Jane and Elliot met on-line – like several of our recent couples and it was obvious to see their happiness throughout their eventful day. We hadn’t actually met Jane before but immediately felt at ease during the bridal preps with her niece as bridemaid She started off by saying how behind time she felt ut actually she soon got dressed and was ready with an hour to spare! never known a bride get ready so quick!
We watched the rain lashing down and hoped it would ease and clear up by the time we got to Hamilton Square We dodged a few rain clouds by the time we met the men for a few pre -ceremony shots Always a popular day Friday at the Town Hall. Jane and Elliot’s ceremony was last of the day at 3.30pm We saw the 3.00pm wedding party go in as the 2.30 came out for pics – and that was eventful(and noisy!) with a motorbike cavalcade Surely the in-going bride would have heard the revving of the bike engines!
Jane arrived promptly on time under the care of Classic Bridal cars, waiting inside the car, til the wedding party could get inside A little rain but ably sheltered by umbrellas. Short ceremony and then out to sunshine ..and soon an almost empty Square. perfect for photos before their twilight wedding reception at the Village Hotel.
RECEPTION WEDDING VILLAGE HOTEL BROMBOROUGH
Great crowd of friends to help them celebrate. Just a couple of speeches – how well did Elliot’s son do, very articulate! We left them after the cake cut and a few more pics to dance the evening away with their guests
Many congratulations to you Jane and Elliot. Glad you had a fabulous day and so enjoyable being with you and your friends and family. Wishing you much happiness love Sandy & Dave x
How lovely (and quiet) does Hamilton Square look! so pretty with all the bunting out too. Perfect time for a glass of bubbly.

Happy to be back at Hamilton Square for the Birkenhead Town Hall wedding of Laura and Bill Not that long since we had another Town Hall Wedding ..well virtually an elopement
…but back to this weddign with the lovely Laura and Bill Ah all those looks between them, the way Bill held Laura’s hand …such love and devotion was so evident they adore each other Truly a touching ceremony, Laura is a little shy but so endearing So glad that Pixsmiths could capture these moments for them in a relaxed way that put them at ease
An overcast day but kept dry for the few formal groups needed The reception was at The Manor Restaurant in Greasby, Wirral – a really excellent restaurant with a separate function suite suitable for small Wirral Weddings Its an elegant converted 17th century Manor House and we love to eat at this restaurant ourselves for special occasions, food is always delicious Although only a small are the surrounding garden and courtyard can be used for some lovely wedding portraits
We were fortunate to have some extra time at the Manor whilst the room was being prepared to get some extra portraits which went down really well. Many congratulations Laura and Bill, it was a joy to capture these moments and we wish you much love and happiness
Birkenhead Town Hall weddings are extremely popular, especially on a Friday as they always take place in the beautiful upper room, gorgeous with its decor and stained glass. Currently weddings can be 30 minutes apart although this will soon be extended. This is why its so important being on time – Laura and Bill where. Lateness can impact on your timings for photos on stirs etc..with other weddings crossing over so please be aware of this. if you need a photographer for your Birkenhead Town Hall wedding, even if just to capture ceremony and a few photos after then click the link we’d love to hear from you and see how we can help
We strongly believe things happen for a reason … cat loving Kristie and Chris booked us some time back for a wedding and then a little bundle of joy arrived. Date and plans changed, but delighted they still wanted us as their photographers. S o happy we were available for new date and deposit was carried across, no problem.
New venue, the quirky boutique 478 Hamilton Square made an ideal choice combination with a Town Hall Wedding. Preps just across the road from the Town Hall at 4748 in their beautiful Snowdrop suite – a wonderful space at the top of the hotel, contemporary furnishings for the bedroon backroonm, lounge and kitchen area. Gemma Bucley was lovely and calm on hair and make up duites and Liessa Murtagh was especially helpful to Khristie, helping her dress and leading her over to the Town Hall, lovely to see you Liessa!
Kristie’s gorgeous gown is from the Kelsey Rose Bridal Collection from Cherish the Bride. Kristie changed her colour scheme after being inspired by pastel baby colours and her bouquet from Amelia Jane Flowers epitomised this perfectly.
Beautiful Georgian buildings and architecture on the doorstep and the green park area of Hamilton Square for portraits. Perfectly placed for their relaxed intimate wedding party. keeping things simple – thier adorable daughter as flower girl and Chris’s “bestman” was his sister. The stables and outdoor courtyard was ideal for their party size and a great time was had by all. Many congratulations Kristie and Chris thank for for sharign your special day with us it was a real joy to be with you.
