Brook Hall Outdoor Wedding: MJ & Gary

Brook Hall Outdoor Wedding

This was a laugh a minute  Brook Hall Outdoor wedding for Mary and Gary.
One of the hottest August Bank Holiday weekend. Ever.
So privileged to capture your day guys, so much fun, even if it was hot…cue fans and air-con on al day.
Historic Brook Hall is situated in beautiful countryside and gorgeous gardens.  Perfect for your wedding.
Indoor ceremonies can take place in the old chapel too if wished. Always good to have options.

The girls from the wedding collection Wirral were busy setting up the chairs for the outdoor ceremony whilst groom and bridal preps were ongoing.
MJ and her sisters were a hoot, so lots of laughter. Some relative calm in the bridal suite where MJ got into her amazing Maggie Sottero dress from  Elegance Bridal
Lisa was on hand to help  MJ with this – do love this fitting service.

Brook Hall Outdoor Wedding Ceremony

The Outdoor ceremony was set up on the big lawn, due to the number of guests.
So vows were made here and then MJ and Gary and their witnesses had to go to the bottom of the garden to the Brook gazebo to repeat the vows under cover to legalise it.
So …make sure you add on extra time if you opt for this scenario.  Then back to the lawn to sign the registers in front of all their guests.
MJ and Gary then danced down the aisle, beaming smiles and laughter all the way.

Brook Hall Reception

Wayne Farrow Wedding Singer was on hand to perform through the ceremony He has an amazing voice we later got to capture his action during the reception.
has to be seen – it’s amazing the way he gets everyone involved, dancing and singing and having an amazing time.  Some of the best wedding entertainment we have witnessed ..and captured.
Not surprised he is very much in demand – you need to book early to secure his services.
certainly kept us on our toes in between gulping our food down.  So glad our Video colleage Rob Whibley was on hand to video the action too.
Can’t wait to see the footage but hope you get the gist from the some of the many pictures here. Again the ladies from Wedding Collection had set out the room beautifully

The fun continued in the evening with Wayne singing or the First Dances _ Mj with her  FAther and then her new husband.
The dance floor was kept busy with a brilliant sax player and entertainment with Pixelbooth Magic Mirror – guests were having a great time with that.

Thank you MJ and Gary for all the laughter on your day – wish you many more years of happiness.
Thank you to Jemma & Mark a previous Pixsmiths bride and groom for recommending us.  Lovely to see you all

Sophie & Rob’s Gorgeous Outdoor Inglewood Manor Wedding Ceremony

Sunflower and Gin Themed Inglewood Manor Wedding


So happy to be back at Inglewood Manor for another gorgeous outdoor wedding ceremony.
We captured Inglewood Manor’s first outdoor wedding of 2019 too back in April.

Sophie and Rob planned the most perfect day for their sunflower and gin themed wedding.
The flowers and buttonholes were all cleverly made by Sophie’s mum.
The added an amazing splash of colour to the day.
Their schedule gave them plenty of time for getting ready, enjoying the ceremony which was beautifully set up on the terrace.

Drinks and canapes afterwards with time to mingle, enjoy group photos and portraits.
The magician was entertaining the guests before and after the meal. The sunshine ensured guests could make the most of the grounds after the meal and more fun with the magician
Everyone had an amazing time, it really did flow.  Nothing was rushed and made for a perfect relaxed fun day.

A great party in the evening and we left well into the evening as it was such good atmosphere.
The bouquet toss and the merriment that caused was the icing on the cake, although some pics had to be censored!

Hope you enjoy some of our favourite images of the day. There were so many it was hard to choose,
but we especially loved seeing the reactions of mum and dad when they saw their beautiful daughter dressed.
A funny coincidental capture of a bubble right in front of Rob’s face.

Always a privilege to capture an Inglewood MAnor wedding, something we never tire of.

Soughton Hall Summer Wedding

Recently Fiona and Mike asked us to cover their Soughton Hall wedding photography and we were only too delighted!
It’s a stunning venue and one that Fiona as a makeup artist is familiar with.
Situated in Flintshire it’s a fabulous Georgian Country House Hotel, with exclusive use for weddings.
Surrounded by gardens and glorious countryside on the borders of Cheshire and North Wales – so plenty of scope for your wedding pictures.
Indeed Fiona chose this venue for its long drive and sweeping view up to the splendid house.


Soughton Hall Wedding Ceremony

Several options for wedding ceremonies at Soughton Hall – outside in the garden or indoor in the wonderfully elegant upstairs Blue Room
Fiona and Mike had their wedding ceremony in the Blue Room, which really suited their elegant style.
It was a gloriously warm day and lots of natural light coming through the long windows.
Guests were enjoying pre-ceremony drinks outside

Adore this moment of Fiona poised and serene, ready to enter the Blue Room to her waiting groom.
The lanterns lining the route belong to Soughton Hall and perfectly match its period setting.
A beautiful joyous ceremony with a harpist providing the music to walk into and out.
So many giggles and looks between Fiona and Mike.
Uniquely they said their vows simultaneously.  The first time have come across this but so refreshing when couples put their own stamp on their day.
soon it was time for drinks and photos

Whilst the photos were being taken the room adjoining the Blue Room was set up for wedding breakfast,
No place names for Fiona and Mike as they opted to table hop between courses – what a great idea to chat with your guests this way.
Fiona had a special cake made for Mike, reflecting their boat which they enjoy sailing.
Short thanks on the stairs before guests entered and we left them to enjoy their meal.

Thank you, Fiona and Mike, we could share a few hours with you and capture some moments to remember.
We wish you much joy and happiness x

Relaxed Elegant Mere Brook House Wedding: Julie & Peter

So In between our June destination weddings we had the joy of capturing this elegant yet relaxed Mere Brook House wedding for Julie ad Peter.
How gorgeous has the weather been this month! Perfect for a summer wedding at Mere Brook House.

Mere Brook House is a gorgeous welcoming Edwardian Country House,. Its a 5 star Gold Bed and Breakfast venue on the Wirral that also hosts many events and conferences.
It has an idyllic setting for an intimate wedding with its beautiful  4 acres of gardens and brook – hence its name!
Renowned for its home cooked too with ingredients locally sourced and many from their own vegetable garden.
It was the perfect venue choice for Peter and Julie to marry and celebrate their day with family and friends.

The venue was full of family and friends and the decor was elegant, beautiful flowers in little cut glass flowers adorned the tables in the dining room and conservatory areas.
Flowers were by Nicola  florist Flowers Oxton, just gorgeous Nicola
Julie was getting ready at home  with her bridesmaid and son (there are options to stay over and get ready here if wished though)
Meantime guests gathered and enjoyed the sunshine with their drinks outside at Mere Brook House.
The bridesmaids certainly enjoyed being outside and had a few twirls in their beautiful dresses and a swing

In all the business Julie inadvertently left for bridal bouquet at home so improvised by borrowing her mum’s gift bouquet to walk down the aisle – hence Peter’s expression!
The kind staff of Mere Brook kindly went to her home and fetched the bouquet to the venue  – super customer service from  Lorna!
A beautiful ceremony, a cute ring bearer and bridesmaids  and then back out to the sunshine whilst tables were set up.

Before the group formals Julie had a wonderful surprise from Peter with her new horse (important part of family after all) being brought up to the venue
Made for some lovely shots with Julie an she was so pleased to see him.  Julie was carrying a decorated horseshoe as a memento of her previous horse
– a thoughtful touch from her sister who had carried it at her wedding also.
Time then for  a few minutes to let Peter and Julie have  a few mins together and  capture a few relaxed shots as they strolled in the gardens

So the feast to come before the speeches!  We had recently been to an event – the pudding extravaganza (suited Sandy perfectly!) so knew guests were in for a treat
In true Mere Brook House style guests go through the large country  kitchen to be served their delicious food from an amazing team of chefs
Photographers always welcomed to sample the food too from Mere Brook House, thank you for looking after us!
Entertaining speeches from several guests and then time for dessert.  We left our couple to enjoy the evening celebrations, sure it was a wonderful relaxed time.

So happy the day was sunny for you Peter and Julie, Mere Brook House just suited you perfectly.  It was a real pleasure to capture your happiness. Enjoy your highlights
Wishing you many years of health and happiness. love  Sandy & Dave xx

Cheshire Marquee Wedding: Lydia & Peter

Cheshire Marquee Wedding: Lydia & Peter

Relaxed Fun Cheshire Marquee Wedding: Lydia & Peter

We had previously covered the Cheshire marquee wedding of  Lydia’s sister Hannah  and Andrew about 3 years ago… the fancy dress wedding of the Zegg’s!
So we were delighted to cover Lydia and Peter’s home Marquee wedding.  On paper it looked a very similar wedding – same home preps, horse and carriage ride down to their local country church at Burton and back for the Cheshire marquee wedding reception.  Sisters however are chalk and cheese so it keeps things interesting and proves that weddings at same venues can have a different vibe and style.


Lydia admits she is laid back and very much last minute – Peter had done all the email communication with us beforehand re timings and groups
So we arrived at preps and not surprisingly both Lydia and Hannah were getting the marquee tables decorated, table plans done and cake decorated!
Leaswood Grange is a gorgeous house and full of family mementoes.  The earrings were a 21st birthday gift for mum and like the small bible brooch are antiques
Always a challenge to be do something different with details.  The gorgeous flowers were captured in the nursery chair and baby cradle.
Lydia was really grateful we just go with the flow of what is happening and not to have to pose.
She looked gorgeous in her Angelica Bridal Gown and her flower girl had a matching dress too

CEREMONY St Nicholas Burton

Its was blue skies at the church -one of the hottest August Saturdays, most unusual for a bank holiday too!
Bride was traditionally late and a long serviced followed so we were chasing the time a little
out to glorious sunshine and confetti on the steps before being driven away in her landau style horse and carriage
A beautiful country wedding  lots of family involved in the bridal party with nephews and nieces and their own two year old.


Wonderful home made cakes, prosecco and delicious canapés from Cheekychilli catering ensued on the lawn whilst the string quartet were playing.
Family formals over time to mingle and capture some bride and groom shots before entering the marquee in the adjacent farm field
The table were named after favourite books and were adorned with pretty pastel coloured flowers matching those of the bridal and bridesmaids boquets
Guests were treated to a delicious meal and then followed the entertaining speeches.
Evening party soon followed and another treat was the Motown Magic band (travelled all the way from Bristol) who were excellent and had the dance floor packed!

A wonderful day enjoyed by all and so glad the sunshine was out for such a memorable day for Peter & Lydia
A joy to be back with your families again and we wish you much happiness and health

Gorgeous Inglewood Manor Wedding : Em & Josh

What a gorgeous Inglewood Manor Wedding day! It’s always a delight to be an Inglewood Manor wedding photographer, it really is one of our favourite venues. We have photographed here throughout the seasons.
So we were delighted when Em and Josh asked us to cover their wedding day.  Josh was no stranger to us as we had covered his sisters wedding a few years ago so It was really enjoyable being with the families again.

Bridal Preps

Ah and what a day Em and Josh had for their church wedding at St Peter’s lower Heswall and reception at Inglewood Manor too.
Relaxed bridal preps at Em’s parental home – and a gorgeous home too!  Plenty of space for all the getting ready and details.
Dad and bride really quite emotional when the reveal happened, tugged at our heart strings!  Think the bridesmaids and mum had quite  a moment too!
A bit of rain on arrival at St Peter’s in a beautiful yellow Rolls Royce – such a sunny yellow.

Ceremony St Peters Lower Heswall

The ceremony was uplifting and joyous  with the worship songs and message from their own church  pastor.
So may humorous moments to capture – not least the cheering and uplifting of arms when pronounced man and wife.
Soon it was out  to the  sunshine and a light breeze to aid the natural veil shots!
Smiles all round as the confetti was rained on them before they left for the wedding breakfast at Inglewood Manor

Inglewood Manor Wedding Reception

Em is an English teacher and favourite literature provided the theme at Inglewood Manor with the table settings.
The wording on the stunning cake and favourite quotes strung up on the stair railings outside added to teh theme.
The speeches were really entertaining – especially when Em was asked 3 memory questions, had the guests in stitches!

Evening entertainment at Inglewood Manor Wedding

The weather was warm enough for friends to enjoy the popular giant Jenga garden game  before the evening took over with fun photo-booth
Their band  Stanley Park  had the dance floor rocking from the off.  Em and Josh’s friends  really enjoy a great party and it certainly was!
Thank you both for such an amazing day to capture for you  Really hope you enjoy these highlights.  Thank you for all the giggles and joy shared.
much love and Happiness Sandy & Dave xx
