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

We were blessed to work with amazing creative wedding professionals on this Trafford Hall Rustic Wedding shoot. We just love collaborating with each other, networking and supporting each other with social media campaigns and images. So just recently we met up at the delightful Trafford Hall , a wonderful Georgian House with on-site accommodation for guests wishing to stay over. This charming rustic venue can be decorated as you wish and enjoys delightful woodland, lawns and sunken garden areas for umpteen photo opportunities for your wedding photography. As photographers, we love coming here. The staff are really welcoming too and will happily advise on plans for your day.
For this shoot the decor was supplied by Sweetpea & Ivy They love this venue and have dressed Trafford Hall many times. Always love their rustic styling, perfect for this venue. This time they provided an outdoor ceremony area and a fabulous barrel table laden with cakes and sweets created by Bella’s Cake Pantry The delicious cakes and cake pops were from Sue’s watercolour and silver leaf collection. Scrumptious!
Place cards and menus by Pink Sherbet Stationery perfectly matched the colour scheme on the tables set up by Sweetpea and Ivy and Wirral Table and Chair Hire The tables were adorned with evergreen leaves and candles in a long wooden container, creating a warm cosy touch. Little cut glass vases with peach roses added the touch of colour to the table. The backs of the chairs were adorned with soft pastel swags, tied in the middle with a complimentary satin ribbon. The wooden floors and giant light up LOVE letters either side of the fireplace completed the elegant rustic ook.
Pixsmiths Creative Photograph had a great time photographing the amazing Katey Elizabeth around the venue in a gorgeous dress supplied by The Wirral Wedding House The dress is a hand-finished bohemian style beaded gown from Romantica of Devon. Suited Katey so well, she made a fabulous Boho Bride!
Update 2020: It’s a real shame that this gorgeous venue had to close its doors due to government charity funding cuts. Ther is an ongoing drive to get Trafford Hall reopened. Donations have already been received. If you can help Trafford Hall please see here
