After a couple of gorgeous outdoor weddings, it was great to have this stunning Inglewood Manor wedding held indoors. The weather was getting a bit cooler, so indoor suited this family.
Right from the moment that Jason and Emily sent us such a beautiful email saying how much they loved our “approach and naturalistic styles of photography” and ” would adore you to be able to capture our smiles, love, and warmth in your photographs.,” we knew this was a match made in heaven. It certainly didn’t disappoint. Its no secret Inglewood Manor is one of our favourite (and most popular this year) venue but combined with a couple so full of love and not afraid to show it, was magical.
Emily and Jason made the most of the venue space. Ceremony indoors in the newly opened up Executive suite. The removal of the partitioning wall allows so much more light in, great from a photographer’s viewpoint. The wedding breakfast was downstairs in the Burton Suite with its doors leading out to the glorious view beyond to the big pond For the evening it was back upstairs to the middle room for the partying!
Bride and Groom Preps Inglewood Manor
The guys were quite relaxed as they strolled around the grounds for some pictures before the indoor ceremony. Meanwhile, Emily was a little more nervous, understandably, as the ceremony approached. Emily got ready in the beautiful Oak Room bridal suite. Her maid of Honour Kat did a wonderful job looking after her, helping her dress and keeping nerves at bay. Such a devoted friend. When her dad saw her, it was a beautiful emotional moment. We are so honoured to capture these moments. Dad proudly escorted his daughter, sweeping her down the stairs to her waiting groom.
A girl can never have too many shoes and boots!
Inglewood Manor Indoor Ceremony
The emotions continued into the ceremony with tears of joy from both bride and groom, each dabbing their eyes at moments throughout the Inglewood Manor indoor ceremony. So touching to witness., confess to a lump in my throat too and moist eyes.
Groups and Portraits
Plenty of time with theis relaxed wedding for family groups and couple shots throughout the extensive grounds. Emily and Josh love the woodland and reflection shots and they loved these results. we ended this session with a quirky shot on the steps and got in for the wedding breakfast just before a rain flurry.
Wedding Reception Inglewood Manor
Emily had requested that her flowers looked like they had been freshly picked from a meadow. They looked exactly like that, springlike fresh, so pretty and elegant. They adorned the tables for the reception and it worked a treat. Still, the emotions were running high for the speeches. Neve known such chemistry amongst family and friends.
Plenty of time afterwards for some more portraits. Emily and Jason loved exploring the grounds, they really maximised them to the full. A pathway has been made in the grass leading to the boathouse. We hadn’t often utilised this area but it’s so much improved. Their timescale meant it was a relaxed pace for everyone. Still time for mingling before the evening party kicked off with cake cut and dancing.
Evening Reception Inglewood Manor
The evening kicked ogg with cake cut and dancing – great first dance, even if Jason stod on Emily’s dress when he swept her over on the dance floor. Great moves guys! Guests were treated to a chocolate fountain and Emily and Jason had some cool presents! The cross stitch perfectly complemented the ring cushion made for them by mum. The dance floor was kept busy, everyone having a fantastic time. Emily changed into a dress for the later part of the evening, being on-trend with a cape attachment, ooh swirly!.
We really didn’t want to leave, such an amazing day. When you have couples and families who enjoy each other’s company and not afraid to display their emotions it just makes for the most perfect wedding story. This isa day we will never forget just as Emily and Jason won’t. We felt so privileged to share in this day and we wish you every happiness for the future.

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

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
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!
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
Dads always want to check their son’s collars are clean!
