The 1st of October and it was a hot and humid Indian summer’s day at the Mecure Chester North Woodhey House Hotel in Cheshire. A late afternoon start for David and Sam’s ceremony meant plenty of time for the bridal preps where Sam kept her cool despite the busyness happening around her and the unseasonal temperatures, not helped by the absence of air conditioning. A devoted dad and organised mum and bridesmaids kept things under control. Sam followed the well know tradition of “Something Old, Something New, Something borrowed, Something Blue…and a lucky sixpence in your shoe”. We also spotted the groom’s wedding present but were sworn to secrecy!
A small intimate family wedding ensued, enjoyed by all, and the photography was a breeze with a well organised best man. The reception over the speeches begun with hankies at the ready. The evening swelled with more friends joining the festivities which made for a great party to celebrate their life as a married couple. …and the big secret, a huge Starship Lego kit, now completed and proudly on show in their home. Wishing you much happiness Sam and Dave, really glad to share in your story. x
Below a few of our favourite images from the day. Full gallery on-line is available.
A lovely wedding for Dan and Sam in West Kirby. A church service at the URC with a small reception in the church hall for friends followed by a reception at Leasowe Castle. The day started early for Sam and we caught up with her at her make-up stage – thank you to Gina from Positive Touch It was back to the house for the bridal details and all too soon it was off to the church and then onto the castle. A day full of joy and blessings and wishing you many more Dan and Sam. Below just a few of the many images – on-line gallery is now available for viewing.
Mat and Sue had the best of both worlds. An intimate wedding on the beautiful island of Mauritius and and a family celebration a few weeks later with a church blessing at St Mary’s, Upton, followed by an evening party at the Woodside Ferry Terminal Home Cafe, with its wonderful river views across the Mersey to Liverpool. A very relaxed occasion and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Matt’s Father’s band provided the evening entertainment and the German u-boat and war time memorabilia provided some unusual details. Here are just a few of the many images. Many congratulations to the happy couple. Full client gallery available here.
Sue did a great bouquet toss, considering the distance she had to throw it below. Well caught too and well captured! Its really useful to have 2 photographers!
Pixsmiths were delighted to cover the wedding of Mark and Heddus at Rossett Hall, North Wales. A late Sunday afternoon wedding so we had plenty of time to arrive early and enjoy a delicious lunch at the Hotel’s Oscar’s Restaurant – the cheesecake was divine, worth a re-visit just for that alone.
The wedding was a sunny affair and the Welsh theme was vey evident in all the details. The colour scheme of red, green and ivory chosen to complement the colours of the Welsh flag. Mark and his best man had Welsh dragon cufflinks, Heddus said her vows in Welsh and Mark in English. Lovesppoons for the ladies and slate coasters for the men formed the table favours – the red dragon on the coasters made an ideal backing for a ring shot. The wedding rings were welsh gold clodau rings and had the welsh word for love “Carriad” inscribed inside – a specifc request for us to capture, and a good excuse to get a new macro lens 🙂 The table seating plan took te form of asmall bird cage, bedecked with colouful deatils and tags listing their family and friends. The welcome drinks even spelt out their names!
Heddus entered the ceremony with her daughter as the Welsh ladies choir, that Heddus belongs to, sang beautifully. Our thanks to the staff at Rossett Hall who made us welcome and gave us access to the room for the overhead group shot. A very joyous occasion and happy to capture those special moments. Wishing you both contined happiness for the future Mark and Heddus! Below are a few favourite images On-line gallery is now available too
Pixsmiths had a wonderful time with Jenny and Graham’s wedding, being blessed with a bright day and glorious daffodils in the woodland garden of Leasowe Castle. There were plenty more surprises to come too with the “Everton Blue” theme, bridesmaids dresses, cocktails and resultant blue tongues which made for a funny picture. Graham was surprised with a wedding card signed by all the Everton players…the look on his face was priceless so glad we captured that for him 🙂
Jenny a Blackpool lass looked radiant, her make-up was by Make -up artist of the Year, Amy Lewis. A born organiser, Jenny had meticulously made the table favours, seating plan and post box all co-ordinated with the blue bows. A pic’n’mix table added to the colour and they had their own sticks of rock and sweetie jars with their names and wedding date on. Very popular with all the adults! Jenny’s thoughtfulness was even evident in the ladies where a basket with perfumes, dry spray shampoos, plasters in case of blisters from the dancing all night long in heels.
Our thanks to to the staff at Leasowe Castle for their helpfulness and delicious meal provided by the chef – very tasty.
Many congratulations to you Jenny and Graham and wishing you even more happiness in the years to come.
On-line gallery is now available – enjoy! We look forward to being here back in the summer for another wedding.
