Laura and Thom :Holiday Inn Ellesmere Port Wedding Photography

 

A sunny August day for Laura and Thom’s church  wedding at the historic village church of St Mary’s Eastham and reception at Holiday Inn Ellesmere Port .
The bridal preps were such fun, all the girls were chilled out, having a good singalong and drinking prosecco …eventually when they popped the cork!
A campervan  to whisk the girls to the beautiful historic village church of S Mary’s in Eastham.  Laura, a stunning bride was led to her waiting groom by her two dads – such a lovely touch this.  We couldn’t entice Gary Barlow to make an appearance but next best thing Laura’s school class choir came and sang one of his tunes for the couple in a most personal enjoyable service.

Group shot and confetti exit and it was onto the reception at the Holiday Inn – the fine weather had guests enjoying the outdoors…even a bit of fishing took place… The wedding breakfast in an air conditioned room was bliss though!
Hilarious  and heartwarming speeches ..especially with Laura singing an a poem to Thom – so glad thay was captured on video by the ever capable Rob Whibley from Action Wedding videos – definitely a moment to watch over and over again.

Chocolate fountain and photobooth prop shots to make a guest book kept everyone entertained and the band Eden had everyone rocking til late at night.  What a fantastic day for Thon and Laura and we wish you much happiness xx

Liverpool and Sheldrakes Wedding: Rose and Alex

Liverpool and Sheldrakes Wedding: Rose and Alex

We were delighted to cover a few hours of Rose and Alex’s wedding day, split across Liverpool and Wirral.
A wedding not too many months in the planning, with an engagement in the New Year.
..but wonderful plans, a lot of thought had gone in to the intimate service at St Mary’s in Woolton Liverpool.  …the church where Cilla Black recently had a memorial service.
Beautiful music and readings from Song of Solomon – such romantic prose there  and the two singers were wonderful, blending of operatic voices, who knew Pharell’s Happy could sound like that!
Rose and Alex danced out of St mary’s to this “Happy” tune.
Wonderful light bright church with a great balcony to shoot from too.
Oh and did I mention Rose’s dress, wow what a stunner, specially made for her by her dress designer friend
Then what a treat for the guests, the open top Chester vintage bus, one of only 3 in the country of this type, was hired to take the guests over to Sheldrakes on the Wirral.
A few group shots and quick portraits before they sat down for their meal.  The food selection at sheldrakes restaurant was a major plus point in their venue selection.
Alex is an eye doctor …and novel idea to use place cards akin to eye test chart, love the details!
Beautiful wedding stationery from Devlin Designs too the invites with Sheldrakes depicted complimenting the order of service with St MAry’s and the vintage bus on the back – lovely attetion to detail.

Many congrats Rose and Alex wishing you much happiness and thank you for asking us to be a part of your day in capturing some specail memories.

Vegas Destination Wedding Home Party Sharon and Gaz

We watched Sharon and Gaz say their vows in Vegas, live-streamed from the wedding chapel with just 2 witnesses …seemed sureal as we sat in outr hotel room night before we flew to Italy.
They went and had a blast in Vegas on their honeymoon and upon their return it was a large colourful party for 250 friends and family at The Park Royal Hotel, Stretton, Cheshire.
Lots of colour, lots of food and a free bar made for a lively atmosphere that distracted from the grey drizzle outside. The vivid pink and navy colour scheme certainly added a splash of colour.
We went with the flow capturing the ambience of the reception and candid shots of the guests.  Then an official entrance to the beating of drums and a surprise dance from Sharon’s besties – a bollywood style routine that went downa  treat.   Thank you for the fun guys, here a few higlights of the evening to enjoy x

Football Themed Thornton Hall Hotel Wedding: Adam and Lynne

Adan and Lynne’s Thornton Hall hotel Wedding  was hoped to be outdoors..but you can never tell what our British summer will do!
Fortunately the Pulford Suite is also an excellent option for a small wedding party, and truthfully I think it suited this day better on reflection.
The whole day was all on one site and the day just flowed from preps to ceremony to reception and evening.
Hilighlight of the ceremony was Adam puttign the ring on the wrong finger and Lynne letting him – much laughter!
Splitting portraits either side of the wedding breakfast  gives different lighting conditions.
A chance to stretch your legs after a meal, have a few minutes “you time” before the evening guests arrive

Second wedding in a row the lovely Sue Hazlehurst from Shimmer and Shine Professional was on hand for make-up, ever calm
Carrie Ann Shirley did a fab job on hair, Liessa Murtagh popped in to help Lynne into her Cherish the Bride dress, especially keeping calm at this time when little Scott was wanting his mum
Beautiful flowers from Earth Heswall and thier colourful turqoisse gel centrtepieces looked so colourful in the room.
Football loyalties shared today with the Liverpool and Tranmere theme to the table names.
Thank you Lynne and Adam for the priviledge of capturing your day, glad you all had a a wonderful day and we wish you much happiness x

Valentine’s Day Wedding Thornton Hall Hotel: Lisa and Kevin

Valentine’s Day Wedding Thornton Hall Hotel: Lisa and Kevin

Romantic Relaxed Outdoor Valentine’s  Day Wedding

The most romantic day of the year, always wanted to shoot an intimate Valentine’s Day Wedding so we were thrilled to capture such a day for Lisa and Kevin. Kevin and Lisa have been together 7 years …so no seven year itch but time to get hitched!

Love Blogging! It’s such a delight, revisiting all the emotions and reactions of the day with a big beaming smile on my face ..and this one is a real treat….
Pampering for the girls in the fabulous Spa was the start of the day, Lisa was so calm and relaxed, perhaps the champagne helped!  Then off to capture some details shots in a quiet room before the girls arrived back was a bonus, whilst Dave grabbed a few shots with the guys prior to the ceremony.

A cold but bright day meant systems go for their desired outdoor wedding in the pagoda of Thornton Hal, bedecked in  aglorious turqoise peaccock color, erfectly matched by Lisa’s bridemaids..  A beautiful ceremony  with one of the lovliest registrars we have witnessed. Lots of confetti, drinks and a few groups made for plenty of time for guests to relax and enjoy themselves as we captured relaxed candid shots throughout the day.

Just sixteen guests for the day  and a larger party in the evening made a perfect combination.  A long table in the Pulford Suite suited this size wedding…and what can we do for a small wedding cake alternative – well Ferro Roche was the answwer!

Inglewood Manor Wedding: Sophie and Graham

Sophie and Graham have been together for several years and this was a long waited for day.
A day of sunshine and full of emotion for their wedding at Inglewood Manor.
Bridal preparations were in the beautiful bridal suite and being on same site as ceremony Sandy could stay to get details up to the last minute. Sophie looked stunning in her dress and hair was immaculate from Christopher Terrence Millea
 Sophie made her way down to her waiting groom on the arms of her brother (he was quite overcome when he saw his beautiful sister!) for a beautiful ceremony,  good tasty food as always at Inglewood Manor and impeccable service, and entertaining speeches followed on 

Fab entertainment with Mike the Magician and Tequila Band to kick off the evening fun meant a great party spirit ensued for the rest of the evening with congas and Sophie dancing on guest shoulders in her satin pj’s – one of our most memorable party pics to date!

Congratulations Sophie and Graham, we loved being with you on your day and wish you every happiness for the future.  Sandy and Dave xx
Here just a few highlights of the many from the day to enjoy and to show how beautiful weddings at Inglewood Manor are.
We are one of their preferred suppliers so if you are planning a wedding here please get in touch 🙂
