We were blessed to work with amazing creative wedding professionals on this Trafford Hall Rustic Wedding shoot. We just love collaborating with each other, networking and supporting each other with social media campaigns and images. So just recently we met up at the delightful Trafford Hall , a wonderful Georgian House with on-site accommodation for guests wishing to stay over. This charming rustic venue can be decorated as you wish and enjoys delightful woodland, lawns and sunken garden areas for umpteen photo opportunities for your wedding photography. As photographers, we love coming here. The staff are really welcoming too and will happily advise on plans for your day.
For this shoot the decor was supplied by Sweetpea & Ivy They love this venue and have dressed Trafford Hall many times. Always love their rustic styling, perfect for this venue. This time they provided an outdoor ceremony area and a fabulous barrel table laden with cakes and sweets created by Bella’s Cake Pantry The delicious cakes and cake pops were from Sue’s watercolour and silver leaf collection. Scrumptious!
Place cards and menus by Pink Sherbet Stationery perfectly matched the colour scheme on the tables set up by Sweetpea and Ivy and Wirral Table and Chair Hire The tables were adorned with evergreen leaves and candles in a long wooden container, creating a warm cosy touch. Little cut glass vases with peach roses added the touch of colour to the table. The backs of the chairs were adorned with soft pastel swags, tied in the middle with a complimentary satin ribbon. The wooden floors and giant light up LOVE letters either side of the fireplace completed the elegant rustic ook.
Pixsmiths Creative Photograph had a great time photographing the amazing Katey Elizabeth around the venue in a gorgeous dress supplied by The Wirral Wedding House The dress is a hand-finished bohemian style beaded gown from Romantica of Devon. Suited Katey so well, she made a fabulous Boho Bride!
Update 2020: It’s a real shame that this gorgeous venue had to close its doors due to government charity funding cuts. Ther is an ongoing drive to get Trafford Hall reopened. Donations have already been received. If you can help Trafford Hall please see here
Blue Orchid and Wirral Wedding House Collaboration
The collaboration shoots with The Blue Orchid Boutique and The Wirral Wedding House are going from strength to strength. Here we are at the wonderful Rowton Hall Hotel, Chester. One of our favourite wedding venues, a beautiful elegant country hotel with landscaped gardens to enjoy the outdoors in. We were here recently for Lauren and Craig’s real life wedding – also with some of our Blue Orchid Suppliers. The theme for this shoot was neutral and lace, a contrast to our last one with its bright colours.
Just look what was created by our fabulous team! This really is a tremendous example of how we can inspire each other and you as a bride to be for a wedding theme and see it all come together beautifully from like-minded quality suppliers.
Caroline , a previous real Pixsmiths bride, was visiting the UK just in time to gladly offer to model for us and she looked exquiste in the bridal gown and lace edged veil, supplied by Stephanie and Jennifer of The Wirral Wedding House. Cheryl of Pink Sherbert Designs and Claire of Moo Roo stationery created invitations place cards, menus, table numbers and a large A1 seating plan. Even adding little tags to Sue’s cake pops with beautifully embellished lace and ribbon perfectly matching the theme. The designs incorporated a layered lace effect – a combination of real lace and printed lace with luxurious over-sized satin ribbon bows and opulent hand-finishings – sparkly, but also simple pearls showing the versatility of their work. Colours were neutrals, different shades of ivory with champagnes and golds running through.
The cup cakes with their delicate lace edging looked almost too good to eat and the wedding cake was a triumph from Sue of Bella’s Cake Pantry. The cake pops and heart shaped biscuits with matching ruffle and lace icing make tasty wedding favours too.
Katey from Blue Orchid Boutique surpassed herself with the gorgeous bouquet and huge centre pieces using cream and white stock, astilbe, faith, quicksand, Avalanche and sweet Avalanche roses. Ribbons, lace and diamante on the bouquet handle made it look so elegant.Vintage pink waterfall hoods with lace overlays and origami flower embellishment on ivory Lycra chair covers graced the chairs and complemeted the entire setting. and perfectly demonstrating her venue dressing skills. Oh and just look at the ribbon and origami flower fringe skirt which decorated the cake table – how clever is Anne to think of that! Anne also crafted wands with ribbons, bells and lace – flower girls will love these!
Dave and Sandy were in their element photographing all this gorgeousness – just a selection shown below to give you an idea
A big thank you to the owners and management of Rowton Hall Hotel for making their beautiful venue open to us.
We really enjoy getting creative with these styled shoots and even more so with your wedding plans to create your perfect theme and day for you.
