Thornton Manor Waterside Pavilion Rustic Wedding: Jennie and Toby

Thornton Manor Waterside Pavilion Rustic Wedding: Jennie and Toby

Jennie and Toby’s Rustic wedding Thornton Manor Waterside

A church wedding and reception at the idyllic Thornton Manor Waterside Pavilion were the chosen locations for Jennie and Toby’s wedding The smaller of the lake settings at Thornton Manor but lovely grounds with the bridges and lake views A tinder match made in heaven for Toby and Jennie ..their 3 year anniversary marked was their wedding day.

Bridal Preps

So many pretty details! Dessy bridesmaids dresses in pretty different coloured pastels, Jennie’s own dress was  a gorgeous bridal gown from Bellissima Brimstage Brides and check out those divine Valentino shoes. Pretty blossoms in white and green from Victoria Blossom where a perfect match for the day, fresh and summery The girls had fun being pampered

Neston Church Ceremony

The ceremony took place at St Mary’s and St Helens parish church Neston, a beautiful historic church with exhibits from the Viking age inside A few nervous looks from Toby and great to see his Best men supporting him  and giving reassurance Of course Jennie being devoted to her pooch Oliver had a poem read out especially about how to love her favoured 4 legged friend …and Oliver did make an appearance later on in the day, unsurprisingly. The threatened thunderstorms did not appear, a little rain in the morning freshened things up after the heat of the previous day and did not reappear til late in the evening.  Perfect weather for all as they came out to a confetti tunnel – the mini canons totally surprising them! That look on Toby’s face!

Reception Waterside Pavilion

The reception took place at the idyllic Waterside Pavilion beautifully set out in trestle table format, suited to the BBQ meal.  Barratt’s the caterers did a great job cooking minted lamb, BBQ chicken, vegetable skewers, prawn and salmon skewers as well as steak.  Salads and Couscous with pepper, potatoes and coleslaw provided the perfect accompaniments   Pink Sherbet stationery excelled as usual with her luxury designed stationery from her Sophia range. Check Cheryl’s blog post for all the details. The invites and order of service all coordinated  with the table plan, table names and place names.  The tables were all named after bars with significant meanings – eg.  Sydney Opera Bar for the proposal location during the Australian adventures.  The speeches were regaled with those early tinder messages and much laughter with surprise images of Toby from his modelling days! A wonderful day spent with such hospital staff, friends and family.  The evening got underway with he cake cut and reveal in to the first dance amidst lots of smoke effects and then musical entertainment from the band The Daddioes.  Jennie and Toby we loved your day, so relaxed hope you enjoy your blog post and we wish you much love and happiness

Emily and Peter’s Sunshine Wedding at Thornton Manor

We were so delighted that peter and Emily asked Pixsmiths to be their Thornton Manor wedding photographer.
Thornton Manor is one of our most local venues and we love coming here its such a gorgeous place,in the Cheshire countryside>
Always well organised and staff are brilliant The grounds and rooms are just stunning and a perfect wedding venue – exactly why Emily and Peter chose it.

Bridal make up and hair preps were in the spacious Gatehouse and then Emily got dressed in an even more spacious room in the main house.
Very impressed with how he team organised transfer of belongings over.  Emily was super organised from early on with make up already done when we arrived some hours before the ceremony.
Peter had Emily all emotional with the message on his card to her and had arranged for her Nan’s chain (which she wore every day prior to her passing) to be placed in her bouquet. A thoughtful way to remember her Nan and Emily’s mum also got teary seeing it too. Emily wore flowers in her hair to match the lilac of the bridesmaids dresses.  Lovely detail in  the top beading detail of their dresses which matched that of Emily’s gorgeous dress. Little Oliver, Emily’s nephew almost stole the show though, so cute!

We always enjoy plenty of time relaxing  with the girls and get some venue shots. Seeing as the girls were getting ready on site it was easy to capture the groomsmen arrival too.
The groomsmen added to the colour of the day by wearing a variety of colourful socks.

The dining room(through the Grand Hall) was packed with family and friends  for the ceremony – lovely to see the bridesmaids escorted down the aisle before Emily made her stunning appearance with her proud dad- she looked radiant all day!   Celebratory drinks and out for confetti mingling and photos before the wedding breakfast. The Lime avenue was looking stunning in the sunshine

The music room always looks fabulous and today was no exception, truly a grand setting for a memorable meal.  We loved the expression of joy on Emily’s face when she was shown the room.
Lots of cheers and hand waving as Peter and Emily were announced in as the new Mr and Mrs.  Good food and entertaining speeches followed, the best man had everyone laughing.

Time for a stroll after the meal to get some fresh air and some softer light portraits -in the beautiful flower decked sunken garden area
Extra portraits are a bonus when we are booked for a full day package, making the most of your photo opportunities and spreadign it over the day.
Soon time for the evening dancing and party with the casino going down a treat, certainly provided for a  lively atmosphere!

It was great to work with Stuart Appleyard of Appleyard Productions too, we worked together really well, all of us liking the natural unobtrusive approach
The sun shone all day and everyone had a great time.
Thank you Peter and Emily that we could capture and share in your day and we wish you much continued happiness
love Sandy & Dave x

Asian Wedding Thornton Manor: Sanaya & Satal

Asian Wedding Thornton Manor: Sanaya & Satal

Fusion Asian Wedding Thornton Manor Lakeside Marquee

We love a challenge so we were delighted to have the privilege of documenting Sanaya and Satal’s fusion  Asian wedding at Thornton Manor.
Bridal preps at home first –  again how to take a shot of  a Sari, bit different from a dress hanging up!
The Groom arriving with his family and then beign greeted by Sanya’s mum to welcome him.
A fusion of Sikh and Zoroastrian involved special blessing ceremonies as bride and groom are greeted by their husband’s to be family members.
Rose petals, rice and coconuts were all part of the ceremony during the payers read by Satal’s aunt and the priest.
A new challenge for the ceremony as the priest faces the couple who are facing the congregation.

A unique seating plan – creatively made by Satal’s mother using wood from fruit trees from her garden.
It made a beautiful statement hanging from the large tree on the lakeside near the marquee at Thornton Manor.

Beautiful cake by Suzanne Harvey complimented Sanaya’s champagne sparkly Sari. In Suzanne’s words: ” gorgeous chocolate orange, lemon and carrot cake
was created especially for Sanaya and Satal’s Sikh and Zoroastrian fusion wedding at Thornton Manor, Lakeside Marquee.
Decorated with subtle frills, antique gold lustre and an abundance of edible sequins with 22 carat gold leaf, this cake was perfectly coordinated with the look of Sanaya and Satal’s day!”

No slow first dance, our couple wished for an impact when the curtain was raised for the evening party to begin and we certainly got that!
The drummers enticing the party goers to the dance floor.  Honestly I don’t think they needed much enticement – the floor was always packed!
Sanaya and Satal’s first dance came much later! Wonderful to see the older generation of the families being included on the dance floor too – just as in the pre wedding party.
Hope you enjoy these images as much as we enjoyed the day!

Thornton Manor Wedding: Natalie and Brian

Thornton Manor Wedding: Natalie and Brian

Natalie and Brian met through their mutual love of horses.  Brian was in the mounted police – he was the one to lead the Grand National horses out.  He now trains difficult horses.
Natalie has a horse called Leo she is very attached to – it was fantastic for her to have him there at Thornton Manor for some special pictures,
Huge thanks to Leo’s carers for bringing him along, it helped make Natalie’s day perfect.

Firstly bridal preparations at Natalie’s parental home with MUA Beverley Crawford in attendance, the girls all had a great time getting ready, all looking very on trend in their blue patterned dressing robes before getting onto their pastel coloured dresses. Gorgeous flowers arriving from Carol Anne’s florist, another highlight. We loved the little gift of words of wisdom from Natalie’s bridesmaid – each writing  a thoughtful tip for married life
A little delay with the cars for the groomsmen but in itself a blessing as the men then missed a bit of a shower before their shots – silver lining and and all that!

Next a ceremony at St Paul’s church in Hooton –  a stunning church designed in the style of Lombardy architecture, with its coloured layers …akin to a wedding cake!
The minister was so accommodating to everyone , even the photographers!..really hope to be back at this church!
Natalie won’t mind me saying this but her eyesight is problematic, she has and is undergoing surgery ..so it was very touching of Brian to say that he wouldn’t watch Natalie walk down the aisle but would wait til she was right alongside side him so she could see his reaction, this just about sums up the loving caring relationship of this couple, so tender and true.
Natalie’s mum had recently been very poorly so it was wonderful that she could be there for her daughter’s wedding – a huge blessing and relief for Natalie and Brain

Thornton Manor is always a grand special place for a wedding  – the beautiful cars from Malvern Wedding Cars graced the courtyard entrance and made for a special picture with the bridal party.
The room was dressed fantastically by Carol Anne also, the touches of flowers in the chairs were gorgeous. Wonderful food and also ice-cream made for an enjoyably memorable wedding breakfast.

The evening entertainment went down well with the band Mid Life Crisis who sang a fab personalised song for Natalie and Brian – went down a storm!
We wish them so much happiness and health for the future and hope you enjoy a few of the many images from their wedding day memories.
Images can be purchased from our on-line gallery – just ask!
