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

Intimate Sheldrakes Restaurant Wedding Dee Estuary

Sheldrakes Restaurant Wedding

We always love having an intimate Sheldrakes Restaurant wedding to shoot.  Its a fab wedding venue right on the Dee estuary and local to us.
We often cover ceremony, family pics and portraits here for an affordable wedding photography solution
Not everybody wants full day coverage and we are glad we can be flexible being such a local Wirral venue.

Jonathan and Debbie booked us for such a package – and its surprising how much can be covered in this time.
A relaxed day with guests enjoying a drink on teh terrace before the ceremony
A joyful Sheldrakes Restaurant wedding – a lovely touch was Jonathan waiting at the top of the aisle for Debbie.
Her proud dad handing her over and then letting the two of them walk together the rest of the way down the aisle to get married.

It was a bit of an overcast day but we got through the family groups and portraits in the nick of time.
Literally just as  the raindrops started to fall!
Happily by then it was time for the wedding breakfast to begin so all was well and everyone kept dry.

Jonathan and Debbie thank you for being such a great couple and asking us to cover your intimate wedding
It was a joy to see you enjoy each others company so much and all teh giggles you shared.
We wish you much happiness.

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

Here are some of their highlights to enjoy x

Delightful Peel hey Wedding Photography

So Happy for our couple that this delightful Peel Hey wedding could take place with dad walking his beautiful daughter down the aisle.
A few months ago there were some scary times. …Michelle could not contemplate the wedding without her dad  and rearranged her date.
We were so happy we could change dates with them.

Refreshed from our winter cruise and stay in the Caribbean this February day started bright and dry.
Peel Hey is a welcoming guest house and Wirral  wedding venue. A cosy atmosphere and marquee facilities, suitable for small intimate weddings.

Guests started to arrive and Mike was on hand to greet them.  Michelle arrived in a cute red MG. Their daughter and niece were the cutest liveliest flower girls!
We managed a few gorgeous shots of them larking around.
Lots of giggles and smiles in the ceremony, the room was packed out with family and friends. So lovely to see their daughter involved during the ceremony.

Then time for canapes and group photos and a few portraits in the grounds of Peel Hey before we left them to enjoy the rest of the day.
One of our special short coverage weddings, only for our preferred local venues. Hope you enjoy these highlights in the gallery below.

Pixsmiths are a preferred supplier at Peel Hey and you can see us at their regular open evenings.
The next date is 28th March – hope to see you there to chat weddings!

 ABode Chester Wedding Photography

It was our pleasure to capture the ABode Chester wedding photography of Steven and Preeti  recently.
The ABode Chester hotel is a luxury hotel close to the town centre of to, hence ideal for sightseeing – just a few minutes walk to the  city walls and river.
We enjoyed the bridal preps were Preeti wore two different saris for us to capture.
Cousins and sister were all on hand to assist and was quite chilled out.
The suite on the sixth floor had an amazing view from the balcony overlooking the Chester racecourse
and the welsh hills beyond.  Made a lovely setting for  bridal portrait.
The room itself is large and the bathroom suite impressive with bath one side of a wall and a walk through shower on teh other side

Guests gathered for drinlks in teh bar prior to teh 1pm . It was an international affair with guests flying in from around the world
Preeti was traditionally late so we really chasing time as meal was scheduled for just one hour later – yes 2pm!

Fortunately our couple knew this, its how they wanted their day and there was just a few groups and portraits to cover.
Happily the rain stayed off just until the wedding party sat down for the wedding breakfast
and we had got all the shots requested

Loved all the details and colours of this day and in particular the amazing Indian elephant cake.
We left them to enjoy their meal and evening party.

Much happiness to you Steven & Preeti
