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
