Sunny Shades, Sunsets and Ice Cream at a 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 good friend and make up 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 being 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.

The church – St Peter’s Lower Heswall  was packed for the ceremony.  Their were moist eyes as first the genteel minister lead 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
it was a treasured moment. Charlie and Ruby almost stole the show with their reading, the obvious family closeness was a real joy to see during the ceremony

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  Eurpean final football game too, but will gloss over that :-/

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

We are delighted to be a preferred Sheldrakes Wedding Photographer.
We simply love coming to this contemporary venue with its wonderful views over the Dee Estuary
and appreciate the wonderful staff who recommend us

We have covered full day weddings here, receptions and evening celebrations after a destination wedding
See our Sheldrakes wedding archives.

Toni and Andrew asked us to cover prior to the ceremony afterwards for a few hours to get the all important group and candid shots
We had a delightful few hours with them, covering up to speeches as they were before their buffet Dave covered those as Sandy did a ring shot
Teamwork with Pixsmiths!

The ceremony was one of the shortest available, the vows are made as they exchange rings
So it was soon time to grab a few groups and portraits before the speeches.

We loved all the details!
Toni’s dress was cleverly adapted from two dresses by the amazing team at Bridal Elegance
The bridesmaids dresses were a gorgeous turquoise colour, not a colour often seen but loved it
Toni’s mum did all the flowers and arrangements, the registrar table looked amazing with the flower decor
Lots of jars and vintage touches.  In particular the “guest book” consisted of “Message in a bottle”  Genius idea!
A Travel suitcase for the cards and a beautiful cake with new surname topper gracing the reception table

Many congratulations guys, we loved being with you and capturing some memories of your fabulous day
Wishing you much love and happiness
Sandy & Dave xx

Sheldrakes Wedding Celebration: Carly & Tim

Ooh this was a fun night Carly and Tim’s Sheldrakes Wedding Celebration!
We love Sheldrakes Restaurant with its quirky boatyard and views over the Dee estuary and often with stunning sunsets.The gallery room is cosy and contemporary at the same time.
Carly and Tim actually got married abroad in Florida on the 7th Sept, just the two of them. Many of their friend s and family watched them say their vows s live streamed from the Chapel
Now home and ready to party and dance the night away with their friends and family.
The Sheldrakes wedding celebration also  fell on their 13th together anniversary, so it was a very apt.date to celebrate.

Family gathered just before the party got underway to get some family groups and a couple of portraits taken …before the light got too low.
Carly looked radiant in her gogeous designer dress, suited her bubbly sparkly personality and Tim looked suitably cool and casual  in his braces adorned with a liitle badge detail.
The bridesmaids for the night looked lovely in their colours of sage green, burgundy and pale pink which were complimented in the colour scheme of the room details
The room at Sheldrakes looked so cosy especially with the light up LOVE letters
The cake, a fruit feast decorated lemon drizzle sponge and buttercream and all the cup cakes were made by Kim from Kim,’s Kake Box.
The cake  was a “Free From” wedding cake, being  vegan, dairy free, gluten free and soy free.The avocado and pepper wraps were also vegan and delicious

Carly and Tim had a great time, fun and heartwarming speeches followed by some crazy dancing!
Thank you Carly and Tim that we could share in your wedding party may you continue to have many more years of celebrations.
much love Sandy and Dave  xx Pixsmiths Creative photography

Liverpool and Sheldrakes Wedding: Rose and Alex

Liverpool and Sheldrakes Wedding: Rose and Alex

We were delighted to cover a few hours of Rose and Alex’s wedding day, split across Liverpool and Wirral.
A wedding not too many months in the planning, with an engagement in the New Year.
..but wonderful plans, a lot of thought had gone in to the intimate service at St Mary’s in Woolton Liverpool.  …the church where Cilla Black recently had a memorial service.
Beautiful music and readings from Song of Solomon – such romantic prose there  and the two singers were wonderful, blending of operatic voices, who knew Pharell’s Happy could sound like that!
Rose and Alex danced out of St mary’s to this “Happy” tune.
Wonderful light bright church with a great balcony to shoot from too.
Oh and did I mention Rose’s dress, wow what a stunner, specially made for her by her dress designer friend
Then what a treat for the guests, the open top Chester vintage bus, one of only 3 in the country of this type, was hired to take the guests over to Sheldrakes on the Wirral.
A few group shots and quick portraits before they sat down for their meal.  The food selection at sheldrakes restaurant was a major plus point in their venue selection.
Alex is an eye doctor …and novel idea to use place cards akin to eye test chart, love the details!
Beautiful wedding stationery from Devlin Designs too the invites with Sheldrakes depicted complimenting the order of service with St MAry’s and the vintage bus on the back – lovely attetion to detail.

Many congrats Rose and Alex wishing you much happiness and thank you for asking us to be a part of your day in capturing some specail memories.

Adelle and Matt Sheldrakes Wedding on a so Sunny May Day

A glorious sunny day for a Sheldrakes wedding and party!  Sunshine a gorgeous couple and a fabulous venue at Sheldrakes restaurant overlooking the Dee Estuary.
Just perfect ingredients for a relaxed wedding and knees up in the evening, just as Adelle and Matt wished for.

We started the day at the hair Salon in Heswall, just chilling with the girls and then onto Adelle’s mum’s beautiful stylish home to capture some details before the girls arrived back to get dressed.  Adelle’s dress was a stunning delicate  lace design which slipped over a long ivory underslip, so fitting , gorgeous.  So relaxing for Adellee and her bridesmaids could relax outside – always good to give yourselves plenty of time to relax and enjoy the wedding day as it true it just flies by!

Onto the ceremony with Speedwell motors (a family friend) at Sheldrakes.  Really like the way the room is set up for Sheldrake civil ceremony weddings – like a horsehoe so its more of an intimate, involved feel for the guests to see the vows being made.

An elegant emotional ceremony then onto group pics, we opted to do majority of bridal portraits in the gorgeous evening golden hour  light  and then party the night away.
The Best men gave a hilarious (long!) speech accompanied by video clips to embarrass Matt, they were merciless..but so funny!
The evening reception was downstairs in the Sheldrakes  restaurant area, and was packed to the rafters – Adelle and Matt have a great crowd of friends to help them celebrate their Sheldrakes wedding.  Much love and congratulation guys your day was amazing, a day of sunshine and beautiful freindships,. We are so happy you asked Pixsmiths to capture your memories. Enjoy x
