Bluebells and  Yellow for a Spring Hoylake Wedding

A beautiful spring day for this Hoylake wedding of John and Sarah
Bluebells in season  added to the yellow colour scheme of this long awaited day – John and Sarah have been together some sixteen years now
Beautiful elegant yellow ribbon and spring flower stationery by Ling of Dragonfly Couture Stationery set the theme of the day

We captured the men just across the road in the Green Lodge enjoying a pre ceremony refreshments in the glorious sunshine
We did have to encourage the guests to cross the road for the service before Sarah arrived.!

Sarah so elegant arriving in her brigs yellow fiat – how cute is that!
Her ivory lace Phase Eight wedding dress, with beautiful lace detail, perfectly fitted for her oh so slim figure …Pippa Middleton has a new rival!

The service at St Hildeburgh church was beautiful and heart warming. Our first time in this church but funnily enough we will be back for another Hoylake wedding in a few weeks time.

Love it when couples take time to pick meaningful hymns for a church service

The last hymn especially touched us with these words from the hymn We pledge to one another ..to the tune of We Vow to thee our Country

We pledge to one another,
before the Lord above,
entire and whole and perfect,
this union of our love —
a love that will be patient,
a love that will be wise,
that will not twist with envy,
nor lose itself in lies;
a love that will not falter,
a love to hold us fast,
and bind us to each other
as long as life shall last.

We pray that God will guide us
through all the years to be,
our lives be shaped by courage,
hope and serenity.
Through joy and celebration,
through loneliness and pain,
may loyalty, compassion
and tenderness remain,
that those who share the blessing
of love that cannot cease
may walk the paths of gentleness
into the place of peace.

Time for some candid shots and a few formals before John and Sarah made their way to their Hoylake wedding reception in the little yellow fiat
The church has a little woodland walk and the seasonal bluebells made for a perfect portrait of our happy couple.

For the reception we headed over to the nearby Royal Liverpool Golf Club, home to the Open in 2014.
Its rare to have weddings here as reserved exclusively for members.  John has been a member for seven years now.
There is a pathway from the back of the church if guests wished to make the walk but many opted to use the minibus service provided.

We mingled with he guests as they enjoyed their drinks and canapes, took a few more portraits
Captured the room details and our happy couple  with the cake
We let them welcome their guests in to enjoy their meal  and said our goodbyes wishes

The former portrait studio, now a restaurant, The Portrait House was a wonderful setting for Sarah and Andy’s wedding celebrations.
The food is fantastic – with guests having a choice from the mouth-watering menu.

Wirral wedding photographers, Pixsmiths Creative Photography started the day at the Holiday Inn Express in Hoylake for some bridal preps before the ceremony at St John in Meols which is celebrating its 100th Birthday this year.  The bunting was up and fitted in perfectly with Sarah’s vintage themed wedding.
Grooms men all in kilts and pretty flower girl and boy ring bearer completed the bridal party.

Group shots over the bride and group opted for their own portraits at Red Rocks – lovely sunny weather made it perfect ..and even more so when Sarah spotted some firemen to have a shot taken with!  We had to leave then behind and make our way to the Portrait House, beautifully set up by Cupids and Bows, for their wedding reception.  Big thank you to Matthew and his team at the Portrait House for all their hard work  – it really is a delightful intimate venue for an elegant wedding.
Fun was had til late in the evening – first dance was 10.30pm  – yes we were still there to catch those memories too!

Many congratulations to Sarah and Andy on your fab day – and Sarah had another big occasion the next day, a special birthday, so quite a weekend for her!
Here just a few images to highlight the memories and fun of the day.  Enjoy x
