Sheldrakes Wedding Photographer: Jen & Simon
Sunny Shades, Sunsets and Ice Cream at a Family Wedding
Pixsmiths, Sheldrakes wedding photographer, was delighted to cover this gorgeous family wedding.
Romance blossomed on the local train platform for commuters Jen and Simon
They have been together some 14 years now and have a beautiful family
So now time to celebrate their love and commitment …not only with an eternity ring but a wonderful wedding!
The whole day had such a relaxed happy feel to the day, Sandy was in sparkly ring heaven with the gorgeous details.
knowing Jen’s engagement ring was designed with a grandmother’s diamond was even more special.
Bridal preps just flowed with chat and natural pics of Jennie with her daughter Ruby being pampered by a good friend and makeup artist Zoey
Ruby’s room just suited her to a T and made for some cute special detail shots for her too
Zoey is the partner for Simon’s best man – the taller one. The shorter one is our couple’s son who later showed some great moves on the dance floor
Meanwhile, the guys were getting ready at a nearby family home – it was great to be able to get both bride and groom preps captured.
Church Ceremony St Peter’s
The church – St Peter’s in Lower Heswall was packed for the ceremony. There were moist eyes as first the genteel minister led Ruby in followed by Jen and her proud Dad
Jen walking towards her groom looks down to see her son standing by his side, her daughter looking on, on the other side and the groom’s sister wiping a tear from her eye
A treasured, precious moment. Charlie and Ruby almost stole the show with their reading, the obvious family closeness was a real joy to see during the ceremony
Sheldrakes Wedding Reception
Afterwards whilst the bus did its first trip to nearby Sheldrakes we captured some family groups and a big group on the terrace at Sheldrakes as guests enjoyed the sunshine and canapes.
The flowers supplied by Lyndaflora were stunning – the tables around the lower restaurant area were elegantly bedecked with tall vases with white and green flowers, simply stunning.
Soon time for the meal and speeches – interrupted by the sound of the approaching Showtime Ice-cream van.
Cue – kids streaming out and running down to get their ices – popular with adults too later on a hot day.
Oh, I think some were keeping an eye on an important European final football game too, but will gloss over that :-/
Evening Party Sheldrakes Wedding Photography
The day soon followed into the evening, with cake cutting and dancing, look out for those special moves from Charlie doing the Floss dance.
Everyone had a fantastic day, loved all the moments captured and seeing the joy on people’s faces.
I said at the beginning of the day we were due a good sunset and Sheldrakes didn’t disappoint.
The colors and the boatyard provided some most memorable images
Jennie and Simon we wish you many many more years of happiness. Thank you for the privilege of capturing your day.
Please enjoy just a few highlights from the many love Sandy & Dave xx
The two best men!
Just lovely how the inside of Sheldrakes flowed out to the outside terrace on such a sunny day, really made the most of the space
