We are so enjoying cheering up our couples with a Wirral family photography session on their Would have been wedding day. Its just a little way we can give back, some joy and togetherness on potentially a difficult day. A positive focus, something still to celebrate on the day which would have been filled with vows, family, and friends all being able to celebrate together. Its a day when we can still create some beautiful images and memories – with more to follow next year for the rearranged wedding date.
We had a lovely catch up with Laura and Sean, baby Jess and of course furbaby Lola – of course, she wanted to get in on the act! Lola will be making an appearance at their wedding too. We can’t wait for all our 2021 weddings – going to be an epic year!
For now,enjoy these few highlights as we strolled around a few areas in historic beautiful Port Sunlight Village. Big thanks too to Laura’s mum for coming along to take care of Lola and Jess when needed and also for brilliantly helping with getting Jess’s attention for us. Always a good idea with family shoots to bring along another responsible family member to help with little ones when couple shots are taken.
Fairy Glen Port Sunlight
There is a cute fairy glen now in Port Sunlight – only discovered it recently. Full of sparkly decorations and ribbons, dolls house and lots more kitch decor. Think Jess was mesmerised with it all – the look of wonder on her face so cute.
Memorial Gardens Port Sunlight
The Hillsborough memorial garden is always a beautiful spot with its poignant tribute to the 96 The flower beds here are often colourful, red and white and make for some good frames.
If you have had to rearrange your day – like so many this year. Mark the day with something to remember as best you can. Laura and Sean will receive all the digital files from this session with their wedding images.
We do feel for all our couples who were due to have a family shoot or pre-wedding shoot with us and have had to postpone for the moment This time will pass and we can reschedule – we have various options, so please don’t worry, they will happen!
Port Sunlight Family Shoot
We were blessed to capture Casey and Chas along with their adorable girls – don’t you just love their bobble hats! Their Wirral family shoot took place in Port Sunlight at the end of February this year. It was a little chilly but a good excuse to cuddle up and keep each other warm and for the girls to run around. The Dell area in Port Sunlight is always a popular choice, spoilt for choice for locations. The early signs of Spring were around with crocuses and blossom coming out. We dodged a few rain clouds and chatted over hot chocolate afterwards to warm up and catch up with wedding plans.
We are always happy if you have children for them to come along on a pre-wedding shoot – it’s a great way to get to know each other. Get any shyness out of the way and to build a rapport with each other. Then we are all relaxed on the day at the beginning. All our couples absolutely love this time, when they can escape the planning for a wu=hile and take time out to be with each other. Plus they get some gorgeous precious family keepsakes. Chas and Casey, we know, are looking forward to getting some family images framed.
Hope you see from this short selection of images they will be spoilt for choice. Enjoy guys and we really look forward to your wedding. It may not be in May this year. Whenever it is it will be an amazing special family day and we will be there for you. xx
At Pixsmiths you know we love to take a special engagement ring shot
Oh Danielle and Dennis what a glorious day and time we had with you at your Kings Church Wedding we loved every second! Your welcoming home church where you worship. Such warm hearted people and church family to support you The church was transformed by the Wedding Collection from Moreton and your personal touches Their order of service was a clever fusion of the colours of their national flags morphed onto their figures. A beautiful violinist played prior to the ceremony which was filled with heartfelt worship songs and a special message Emotions running high, Dannielle, trembling as she bravely walked down the aisle by herself (her family in brazil) to her waiting Dennis Such looks of love and pride you gave each other, made our hearts swell too!
From the moment we met we warmed to each other and was evident their pictures were very important to them. Definitely our type of couple! They deliberately chose an early ceremony on our advice for the time of year to give plenty of time for their pictures without rushing yet still being with friends. Time to mingle with their guests and enjoy a finger buffet and cake and sweets – very important in Brazilian customs! before we left for Port Sunlight The beautifully package favours of BEMN-CASADO represent the sweet union, sealed with love and mutual respect. According to Brazilian custom it has magical powers. Every guest who tastes a BEM-CASADO will be blessed with the same happiness as the newly weds…just have to make a wish before the first bite.
They wanted to factor a good time in good light for their portraits in Port Sunlight so we had a good 2 hours to hop around to several locations The tin cans rattling behind on Denni’s car told of their joy on their wedding date and fusion of their Brazilian and Welsh nationalities Onto the Village Hotel Bromborough to rejoin with their guests for evening dancing and more cake! A wonderful day of celebration of the marriage of such a warm hearted loving couple. Danielle and Dennis we wish you much joy in this new chapter of your love story. We trust these images will provide you with lasting memories. Sandy & Dave xx
Highfield Church and St Anne’s Reception: Hannah and Adam
Hannah and Adam kept their Wirral Wedding local and handy for their Church Ceremony at Highfield Church Rock Ferry. We started the day at Deborah Alfa hair and beauty salon in Brimstage for the pampering of the girls. A lovely spacious salon and very attentive staff. A short ride from their home so what better way for Hannah to arrive than by horse and carriage courtesy of Ashcroft Carriages. so happy it was a glorious sunny day for them. Hannah looked fabulous in her bridal gown as she entered, closely followed by several cute flower girls and bridesmaids and what has to be the cutest ever page boy in tails! An unusual church in that there is no central aisle but twoside ones, so processional down one and recessional the other one! Groups soon accomplished at the church Bride and Groom now husband and wife took the carriage to nearby Port Sunlight for their wedding images. Reception followed at St Anne’s, loved the fairy lights set up and such a spacious room. Staff were lovely,looking after everyone, including us, so well. Just loved Hannah’s beaming smile. Lots of action on the dance floor in teh evening, a wonderful day had by all. Happy memories Hannah and Adam , wishing you many more years of happy times. Enjoy your highlights of your day. Sandy and Dave xx

The Old Schoolhouse and Bridge Inn Wedding in Historic Port Sunlight
Lesley and Phil’s Port Sunlight wedding was perfectly planned for ease of locations for their guests and the day just flowed.
Simply loved it! A wedding with so much thought and attention to detail, lovingly gone into it. Certainly a most memorable day – befitting a memeorable proposal Phil had proposed to Lesley on the sky walk on the Grand Canyon during a holiday there, so romatic and what a setting! The sun obligingly shone on their wedding day and their own joy was evident, radiant smiles on their faces.
A ceremony in the old schoolhouse, pretiily decorated themselves the night before with their purple, lavendar and butterfly motifs. A touching sand ceremony after the vows was made with their young son, adeptly mixing the three coloured sands together as one – forming a beautiful momento of their day.
A drinks reception whilst Lesley and Phil had a few pictures taken on the bridge at the ever popular Dell. The guests then followed down to the end of the dell for the group pics.
With the weather being so kind guests could opt to carry on walking to the nearby Bridge Inn for a tasty reception in their function room. Well actually Lesley and Phil danced their way down the road! Again the reception room was beautifully set set up in their colour scheme and staff so helpful – directing guest to the bar area first before entering the room for the wedding breakfast.
Special mention must go to Lesley’s mum who had made the bouquets, the cake, the bunting for the sweet cart and the favours – a real labour of love for teh couple.
The golden light after the meal meant we could just pop over the road to the grassed area for a few more impromptu family pics and portraits before the evening dancing got underway. A wonderful day filled with love and fun – enjoyed by all – Lesley and Phil we loved being with you, seeing you so radainrt and happy – Phil you literally jumped for joy! So glad we captured that and Lesley it showed off the beautiful detail in the back of your dress too 🙂 Wishing you much continued happiness Sandy and Dave xx
