All You Need is Love and a dog for a West Kirby Wedding !
All our weddings are special to us and our couples. We love to travel for destination weddings but equally a home West Kirby wedding is wonderful. In fact our bride is our neighbour across the road and thanks to our next door neighbour put us in touch!
So we were extra delighted to have an oh so local wedding and that Ruth and Simon shopped locally for their wedding suppliers. We couldn’t be much closer! It was literally round the corner to the hairdressers at Rooney Ponton, across the road for the bridal preps and then up the road to St Bridgets for the church service and a cake and prosecco local reception in the Church Hall afterwards. Flowers were from Eden Floral Designs who had cleverley used the tartan used at Ruth’s hen do into her bouquet and the buttonholes. Ruth’s bridal gown with its leg revealing front split was from Opulence in West Kirby.
Later we travelled a bit further down the road to Lower Heswall to Sheldrakes, so beautifully situated on the Dee Estuary for the evening speeches and party. Perfect venue for a reception and staff so accomodating not to mention the tasty elegant food. The room had been beautifully bedecked out by Ruth and her girls and balloons supplied by local West Kirby shop Party Paraphernalia.
The story of how Ruth and Simon met – walking their dogs along the prom in West Kirby was evident throughout the day with cute retro pictures, the cake topper and the plaque on the top table saying “All you Need is Love …and a dog. An amusing poem about Love (dog) was highlight of the speeches. Ruth is a runner (check out those legs!) and recently ran the Great Northern Rub, training Simon to run with her, adorned in a tutu and a ball and chain…typifying the fun loving people they are.
A Trickle of Happiness….
So many delightful original ideas and details went into the day, I must say Mim, Ruth’s daughter had a fantastic yet simple idea of setting up a guest book using personalised postcards for guests to write their messages on which would then be posted throughout their first year as “trickle of happiness”, so inventive and I know will be really appreciated.
So delighted that Ruth and Simon’s day was just want they wanted and they are delighted with their images, portraying their love for one another. So happy we got a special meaningful shot for them on their West Kirby promenade bench..the sun rays bursting through the clouds was just one of those perfect cannot be planned moments.
Ruth and Simon thank you for giving us such a privilege to capture your wedding and we wish you much continued happiness.
Here just a few highlights from the many of their images to tell their wedstory. Enjoy x
