Thornton Manor Wedding Photographer
Wow I have really neglected my blog posts this year!! 65 weddings and a 1 year old have meant I have had less time to keep on top of these.
So… Here is the amazing wedding of Alex and Kate who were married at Our Lady & St John RC Church in Heswall, and held their wedding reception at Thornton Manor. For anyone who has never been to Thornton Manor.. Have a Google.. Go and check out the history. This place is amazing and everything a wedding venue should be! Kate and Alex’s wedding was in the actual manor house, with so many photo opportunities surrounding us inside and out.
Kate and her bridesmaids got ready at Kate’s parents home. Genuinely one of the nicest, welcoming families I have met… Oh and a cat called Monkey! He has even managed to get in on some of the wedding pictures. Kate looked stunning in her wedding dress, and Alex being in the RAF, chose to wear his number 1’s.. and even brought his sword! How cool is that!? The weather….. well it wasn’t kind, but Kate, Alex and their families weren’t going to let a bit of Wirral rain bother them! Off we went outside for some family photographs followed by some bride and groom portraits around Thornton Manor.
Once we had decided that we had taken enough of a beating from the wind and rain, we carried on inside for a few final images before Kate and Alex sat down for their meal in the music room. Wow this room is immense! I mean seriously!! The architecture blew me away.
Every wedding has to have a theme, and Kate and Alex being massive lovers of books went for a literacy theme. Every table had its own book for a table name and we even got a bit quirky later on in the evening, carrying on with the book theme.
After the meal (which was delicious!), typically the rain had stopped! But the daylight had gone. Not to worry… Back off outside we went to capture some night-time images before first dance. Talking of the first dance, I had spotted a small balcony I could shoot from, and then the DJ also had a smoke machine to make it look like Kate and Alex were dancing in the clouds.
Oh, and keep an eye out for some of the dance moves on display…..i’ll let you make your own minds up on whether its a 10 from Len!!
So much love for this wedding and Thornton Manor, and I could go on and on… But I have about another 50 blog posts to write!
Here are a small selection of images from Kate and Alex’s day at Thornton Manor.
