This was a laugh a minute Brook Hall Outdoor wedding for Mary and Gary. One of the hottest August Bank Holiday weekend. Ever. So privileged to capture your day guys, so much fun, even if it was hot…cue fans and air-con on al day. Historic Brook Hall is situated in beautiful countryside and gorgeous gardens. Perfect for your wedding. Indoor ceremonies can take place in the old chapel too if wished. Always good to have options.
The girls from the wedding collection Wirral were busy setting up the chairs for the outdoor ceremony whilst groom and bridal preps were ongoing. MJ and her sisters were a hoot, so lots of laughter. Some relative calm in the bridal suite where MJ got into her amazing Maggie Sottero dress from Elegance Bridal Lisa was on hand to help MJ with this – do love this fitting service.
Brook Hall Outdoor Wedding Ceremony
The Outdoor ceremony was set up on the big lawn, due to the number of guests. So vows were made here and then MJ and Gary and their witnesses had to go to the bottom of the garden to the Brook gazebo to repeat the vows under cover to legalise it. So …make sure you add on extra time if you opt for this scenario. Then back to the lawn to sign the registers in front of all their guests. MJ and Gary then danced down the aisle, beaming smiles and laughter all the way.
Brook Hall Reception
Wayne Farrow Wedding Singer was on hand to perform through the ceremony He has an amazing voice we later got to capture his action during the reception. has to be seen – it’s amazing the way he gets everyone involved, dancing and singing and having an amazing time. Some of the best wedding entertainment we have witnessed ..and captured. Not surprised he is very much in demand – you need to book early to secure his services. certainly kept us on our toes in between gulping our food down. So glad our Video colleage Rob Whibley was on hand to video the action too. Can’t wait to see the footage but hope you get the gist from the some of the many pictures here. Again the ladies from Wedding Collection had set out the room beautifully
The fun continued in the evening with Wayne singing or the First Dances _ Mj with her FAther and then her new husband. The dance floor was kept busy with a brilliant sax player and entertainment with Pixelbooth Magic Mirror – guests were having a great time with that.
Thank you MJ and Gary for all the laughter on your day – wish you many more years of happiness. Thank you to Jemma & Mark a previous Pixsmiths bride and groom for recommending us. Lovely to see you all

Sophie and Rob planned the most perfect day for their sunflower and gin themed wedding. The flowers and buttonholes were all cleverly made by Sophie’s mum. The added an amazing splash of colour to the day. Their schedule gave them plenty of time for getting ready, enjoying the ceremony which was beautifully set up on the terrace.
Drinks and canapes afterwards with time to mingle, enjoy group photos and portraits. The magician was entertaining the guests before and after the meal. The sunshine ensured guests could make the most of the grounds after the meal and more fun with the magician Everyone had an amazing time, it really did flow. Nothing was rushed and made for a perfect relaxed fun day.
A great party in the evening and we left well into the evening as it was such good atmosphere. The bouquet toss and the merriment that caused was the icing on the cake, although some pics had to be censored!
Hope you enjoy some of our favourite images of the day. There were so many it was hard to choose, but we especially loved seeing the reactions of mum and dad when they saw their beautiful daughter dressed. A funny coincidental capture of a bubble right in front of Rob’s face.
Always a privilege to capture an Inglewood MAnor wedding, something we never tire of.
The speeches included a wedding bingo-not seen that before!
Soon we will be back at this wonderful venue and hoping for our third gorgeous outdoor wedding ceremony in 2019.

Spring Outdoor Wedding Ceremony Inglewood Manor
…bu back to Emma & Kev’s day. A bright spring day with daffodils and bluebells in the woodland adding a splash of colour. Bridal preps – lots of activity with hair and makeup going up. We always arrive in plenty of time to capture candid and detail shots on the fly whilst the pampering and camaraderie amongst the girls goes on. Dave captured some shots with the guys too, some cute interactions with their two boys trying to sort their hair out! Soon it was time for the dress to go and some poignant memories of Dad – his picture in a locket tied to the bouquet. One of her sons walked Emma to her Uncle at the top of the aisle who then carried on the short walk to a waiting kevin. How lovely that that moment was shared by family members past and present. It was a privilege to witness the emotion on Emma’s face just seconds before she made that walk. so happy they had the outdoor ceremony they wanted – the first Outdoor wedding ceremony of the year for Inglewood Manor too. Emma looked stunning in her bridal dress and ooh the lads scrubbed up well too.
Family Groups and Portraits Inglewood Manor We believe family groups are important so always make time to get a few. It’s one of the few occasions when families get together, all dressed up and in a beautiful location. For large groups an overhead shot from the balcony is ideal. Sometimes we do groups on the steps. This day with the sun being so bright we opted for the open shade with the woodland as a glorious backdrop. Inglewood Manor is such a wonderful venue, so many areas to shoot we never tire and always look for new angles as well as favourite areas.
Outdoor Inglewood Manor Wedding Reception
Ok so the ceremony was outside but the wedding breakfast was served inside in the Executive Suite – now beautifully opened up. No speeches at this wedding – everyone got to enjoy their food and have some down-time. The bird-themed table names beautifully complemented with the birdcage cake from Suzanne Harvey and the birdcage centre pieces with their floral decorations created by Wow flowers. It looked immaculate. Also loved how Emma and Kevin had a “sweetheart table” for the two of them. Beautiful light after the breakfast so we grabbed Emma and Kevin for some fresh air and some golden light hour shots Such a beautiful time to take some memorable portraits, your photographers will love you for making time for these.
Big kids and smaller kids love the sweet cart!
…and the chocolate fountain is always popular
