Laidback Boho Birkenheadl Town Hall Wedding

Boho Birkenhead Town Hall Wedding

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

Boheain elopement Santa Maria, Cliento Coast, Italy

How fabulous was this shoot on a workshop, led by the fablous Claire Penn,  in Santa Maria di Castellabate during the Secret Retreat workshop
A loved up Italian  couple, wow what chemistry Luigi  and Antonia! …well they were married just a few days ago for real,  it really shine through these images.
We were priviledged to be given access to the normally off limits summer palace and villa Sirena, by island of  Licosia, belonging to the Prince and Princess of Belmonte.

Antonia’s dress is a genuine vintage 1960s Mexican wedding dress purchased from Etsy, perfectly complimeted by a feather headress and feather details in her barefoot sandals.
Luigi or Lu as he is know is local lead singer in a band.  His styling was simple, his own clothes accesorised with a mustard bow tie, love those braces too!
The picture perfect picnic by the sea was masterminded by the uber talented Mandy Beck of Saddleworth Shindigs.  She has a wealth of goodies in her aladdins cave treasure trove and squirreled some away for this shoot.  The ceremony arbour hung  in the trees was decorated with lace ribbons, feathers and hand made dreamcatchers.  Mandy is so super talented.
A perfect laid back boho wedding elopement and picnic reception by the sea, doesn’t get more chilled out and idyllic than this!
An evening party ensued with good friends  at the Azurro Lido on the beach, with music from Lu himself and lots of dancing…oh and fireworks on the beach, outstanding!
Hope you enjoy these images!
