Arrowe Brook Farm Tipi Wedding: Stacey & Dan

 

What a wonderful wedding for Stacey and Dan so delighted were were recommended to this lovely couple by a previous Pixsmiths couple
A great combination of a traditional church wedding at Christchurch Port Sunlight and then a relaxed Arrowe Brook Farm Tipi wedding reception.
Been busy editing but been longing to share this blog post

An early 11.30 am ceremony meant early preps for our bride and and bridesmaids – and not forgetting  Stacey and Dan’s two adorable boys
Plenty of candid moments at Stacey’s mum and dad’s with everyone, Clearly a very devoted family.
A lovely emotional moment with dad when he saw his beautiful daughter in her bridal gown.

Great service from Lisa of Elegance Bridal in Bebbington who not only helped her into her dress, but did a last minute finishing alteration,
plus helped her into the car (which was a bit tricky!) and out of it when arriving at the church.

Church Ceremony Christchurch Port Sunlight

Christchurch is a beautiful church in historic Port Sunlight. The longest aisle on the Wirral.  Always a popular church. The new minister her is welcoming and helpful to photographes
allowing photography from the front and the back of the aisle.  Stacey’s ruffled fishtail dress looked fabulous from teh back of the church
There was slight drizzle on the way in but as Stacey and Dan exited it was sunshine and shades were on!
A few family pics and then a red bus whisked the guests off to Arrowe Brook farm for the tipi reception

Arrowe Brook Farm Tipi Wedding Reception

So the bus arrived at Arrowe Brook Farm with guests spilling out to enjoy more welcome drinks –   the bus had been stocked too with supplies!
Arrowe Brook Farm is a brilliant location for a tipi or marquee wedding.  It’s also a camping and caravan site so has toilet facilities on site.
Not many know about this place – bit of  a hidden gem  but we have shot her a couple of times beforehand.
Bride and groom and several guests were staying over and the tipis set up by All About Me Marquee and Events looked fabulous in the sunshine

Lots of photo opportunities on the farm for bride and groom portraits.
with such a big group it was ideal to capture the big group shot i front of the tipi – followed by some impromptu informal group shots

Such a happy relaxed day – it just flowed perfectly, no time constraint pressure and everyone was enjoying themselves  immensely
The bbq food provided by local caterers Manna Food was plentiful and superb.  – thank you for teh hospitality!
The table names were drinks with the corresponding spirit bottle and rustic design with a pallet table plan and a gorgeously cake from Iced Inspirations atop a barrel

Just see how happy Stacey is !

After the cake cut Stacey and Dan enjoyed a stroll for some evening pics before the night dancing took place.
DJ Mark Forde and the band had everyone rocking out – it was a late night but so enjoyable.
The lights in the tipi looked magical as night fell.

So honoured  Stacey and Dan that you asked us to capture your amazing day.
The early ceremony meant  guests could really enjoy a long day together with you  a- and they certainly did! and not have the day rush by.
Just the type of wedding we love.
Wishing you and your lovely family much health and happiness.
Love  Dave & Sandy xx

Arrowebrook Wirral Farm Wedding: Rachael and Josh

So been looking forward to blogging Rachael and Josh’s fun filled Arrowebrook Farm Wedding!
The rain at the  Birkenhead Town Hall ceremony did not dampen their spirits for long…no sooner had we done the group shot with umbrellas the sun came out! Typical!The Town Hall at Birkenhead is a beautiful Georgian building and the ceremony room upstairs with its stained glass windows is befitting of the building.  Its worth asking for this ceremony room.
Rachael looked stunning in her 50’s style vintage dress with red polka dot Iron Fist Shoes. Josh in his waistcoat and blue checked shirt and yellow tie suited the part too for a laid back wedding.
We grabbed a few shots inside and out before heading on the vintage bus to take us all to Arrowebrook Farm.  The marquee was provide by Got it covered (now Astra Marquees) and with plenty of space around in the farm field everyone had room to run around.  Cakes galore and ice tea added to the hog roast meal….the alcoholic jager bomb shots came later!  Loved the “snap it, shake it, sign it, peg it” Polaroid picture board, so unique and all the guests had great fun taking images as a memorable keepsake.  The evening was all about the country band which went down a storm, the dance floor was rocking.  This was such a great party and we so enjoyed mixing with the guests and capturing the fun of the day.  Rachael and Josh thank you for such an amazing day we wish you all the happiness in the world xx

Scenic Hiking in Flims Switzerland

We recently enjoyed a break in a very sunny Switzeland in Flims in the Graubunden region.  An area of a variety of scenic hikes.  This little blog post shows a few images from a couple of routes we joined together. Starting  with an esay ride up to 1400m with a chairlift, right near our hotel, from Flims to Foppa, we followed the Romansh language themed trail over to Fidaz, over the meadows  and via a delightful alpine hut ..where we stoppped for the obligatory cake. Just before Fidaz a delightful farm wedding was taking place …such a wonderful setting and  a glorious day for the event…many congratulations to the couple …loved their tractor transportation!  From Fidaz the trail winds up to the high Bargis valley with its views of the Flimstein ever present – one of the oldest Via Ferrata routes is here ..not that we tackled it!
So lovely to see families out together having a good time in the fresh mountain area just enjoying the idyllic nature.  Perfect place for a picnic at the riverside.
Enjoy these alpine vistas …could so easily go back here!

Amy and Ian Married – Wirral Farm Wedding

Amy and Ian Married – Wirral Farm Wedding

Wow where to start!! Amy and Ian had an amazing humanist wedding ceremony on the farm where they live.  Very much them, the sun shone, the hay bales and sunflowers were out, they had family and friends surrounding them with with so much love and fun.  It was all they wished for and its was a real privilege to be a part of this wedding, not only to capture a few (and some!) pictures but also a guest).  We got to know Amy when she took some portrait pictures for our website – she owns Slinky Media Studio in West Kirby and is a fantastic portrait photographer herself. Recently Amy has recently launched her newborn website, very dear to her heart.

Amy and Ian put much of their own time and effort in so many details for the day – the wedding sign, all the bunting, the decoration in the marquee, the hand carved wooden name holders with the cows on.  Amy baked all the cakes on her mouth watering cake bar and Ian not to miss out had his own booze bar! A touching ceremony – Amy walked in with her brother towards Ian waiting at the sunflower arch as a beautiful harpist played, and where they read their own vows to each other…I confess to tears in my eyes at this point! A totally delicious BBQ was cooked and served onsite by local West Kirby Butchers A I Roberts.  The flower arch, beautifully made by Katie of Katie’s Floral creations was a perfect setting for the outdoor formals.  We also had time to take  some shots around the farm, including an unofficial first dance in the hay barn – a convenient space left for them with the  hay bales removed for the seating!
Lots of entertainment for everyone, from bouncy castle, casino, archery, football and in the evening sky lanterns lit up the night sky.  Truly a memorable wedding. I hope these images can do it justice.
