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
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!
A thoughtful kevin, just before the ceremony..and afterwards he said he wished he’d married Lisa sooner ..ahh how lovely
Thornton Hall Pagoda – perfect for an outdoor intimate wedding
Dressing preparations over, the obligatory selfie and soon dad was arriving to escort his daughter to a waiting kevin
The evening kicked off with Casino from Sapphire Fun Casinos – the kids loved it, couldn’t keep them away! Also photobooth provided by ProBooth (good to meet you again Ben Ellis!) kept guests entertained, the high quality prints make for a fab fun guest book for a keepsake of a memorable evening.
Thank you Lisa and Kevin for allowing us to capture your day, truly a privilege and we wish you many more incredible beautiful memories xx
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 🙂
A wonderful wedding for Lauren and Craig: a church service at Christ the King in Bromborough and then down to Rowton Hall – a firm favoutie for a Cheshire wedding with Pixsmiths Creative Photography. A great group of suppliers in attendance too to make this a memorable day for Lauren and Craig. we were delighted to Have our Blue Orchid Booutique buddies supplying the flowers and cake – courtesy of Bell’s Cake Pantry. Classic Bridal Car also provided the transoprt – the new confetti cannon and the Baby Bentley proved very popular!
The day started very calm and chilled out at the bridal preps – bridesmaids were getting make up done and then coming to the house so plenty of time to capture details. When the girls arrived they loved their silk robes and we captured some shots with them before it was time to head to Christ the King. We were s o happy for Craig that his Dad could attend the ceemony, it meant so much to him, a big thank you to his carers for looking after him during the long service and afterwards for some important pictures.
Onto the beautiful cheshire country house hotel Rowton Hall with its refurbished gardens, perfect for groups and bride and groom portraits Sunny weather meant guests could enoy drinks and nibbles outdoors before the wedding breakfast.
A good old Irish knees up ensued in the evening – great party atmosphere – all wonderfully captured by Rob Whibley of Acion Wedding Videos – his unobtrusive style goes very well with our natural approach.
Lauren and Craig so happy you had a magical day, filled with love and fun, and wonderul for us to capture. Wishign you much future happiness xx
This is a great way to decorate the top table – having vases for the bridesmaids bouquets – plus they get hydrated if fresh flowers 🙂
A rare treat for Wirral wedding photographers. Guests at Rowton hall hotel for a family wedding! Hayley and Callum are second cousins to Dave (I think!) Great time to relax and enjoy being with family and let someone else take care of the photography. As family we wanted to be able to relax and enjoy the moments with the couple, weddings days can be stressful for a photographer and you constantly have to be on the watch to catch those incidental moments that everyone loves. For this reason we will rarely cover a family wedding. Wonderful to have the very talented Andrea Ellison be the photographer for the day. Great to meet at last have a bit of a chin wag – hope we didn’t stop you too much but I know you will have amazing images and look forward to seeing them.
Enjoying the wedding as guests we were conscious not to take loads of photos, mainly pics of our family…couldn’t resist a few detail shots and some reception and dance pictures in the evening. The cake was fabulous being a birdcage design. Mainly used my 50mm prime lens without flash – always good to try a few things out when you can 🙂
Love this hotel and during our time here we were delighted to see the improvements in the grounds, gorgeous new flower beds and landscaping my mind was already racing ahead to weddings we have booked here for 2015 and the layered shots we love to do with the flora. Super excited about that! The food was scrumptios as always and the staff so organised and helpful. If you are palnning or have booked your wedding here oh wow are you are in for a treat !
If you would like to discuss your Rowton Hall wedding photography with us we’d be delighted to hear from you. Below some random pictures from the day. can’t wait to be back here!
