Racquet Club – Liverpool wedding photography

Finally catching up with my blog, after a really busy Christmas period with two weddings. First up was Jenny and Ken who got married at their local parish St Johns in Walton and then travelled to a fabulous reception at The Racquet Club. The ground was still covered with snow and ice, but thankfully that didn’t stop us. We were able to get lots of fabulous photographs and I was able to cover both the grooms and the brides preparations before heading to the church.

St John the Evangelist is a great church for photographing the ceremony as there is room to move around discreetly and capture the action from lots of different perspectives. Something I always love to do. And I know the place really well now, as it was my third wedding there! After the ceremony was over everyone made their way outside to congratulate the happy couple, in the usual way, by throwing confetti !

Racquet Club wedding reception

Later we travelled onwards to the fantastic Racquet Club, in Liverpool city centre. It is one of my favourite venues, as it has a really relaxed atmosphere and some wonderful staff. Again another third time visit for me shooting a wedding there, so I really know my way around the club now and they had gone to town with some wonderful festive decorations. Much dancing and fun was had.

Anyway, many congratulations to Jenny and Ken, it was an absolutely fabulous day and I really enjoyed being part of it.

Wedding photography at Hillbark Hotel

Wedding photography on the Wirral

I was lucky to be asked to be Simon and Rebecca’s wedding photographer recently. They were married in the wonderful Hillbark Hotel, on the Wirral in Merseyside, a short drive from Liverpool. They had a winter theme and the venue looked absolutely amazing, with loads of reds, seasonal flowers, matching perfectly with button-holes and bridesmaids dresses.

Day started with the bridal party, capturing all the preparation details and final touches. I went for a journalistic style of photography, standing back, letting things unfold, rather than posing too many images. And hopefully the photographs show that.

Family portrait Liverpool

A lovely morning on Pierhead for a family portrait !

It’s lovely when some old friends are in town, a great chance to hook up and take a few family portrait photos. I took Vince and Abigail’s wedding photographs in Bristol in 2007 and it was great to see them again in Liverpool and meet their new family. We had all been at a wedding the previous evening and decided to get up early and have a little tour of the waterfront and Pierhead. As luck would have it, it was one of those magical, crispy bright autumn mornings and we had a ball. Below are a small selection from the shoot – thank you Vince and Abigail for letting me show them on my blog – I think they are lovely.

Kev and Liz’s wedding photography at Liverpool’s Racquet Club

As a central Liverpool venue, The Racquet Club takes some beating. As did the lovely couple Kev and Liz. I met them at a wedding I covered years ago in Bristol and they remembered me and got back in touch to share their plans for a fabulous city centre wedding.

Lifestyle photographer

Happy times in Yorkshire by a lifestyle photographer

A quick trip across the Pennines to Yorkshire for some more lifestyle portrait photography with Jane and her family. And while I’m a lifestyle photographer based in Liverpool, I’m more than happy to travel. I brought my mobile studio and we did some work indoors, before venturing outside to a local park. The weather wasn’t great but we had some fun with the leaves and their lovely children.

A fabulous Southport wedding

Southport wedding photography

Another fabulous Southport wedding, with Tommy and Zereena. They had a traditional church service at St Thomas, Lydiate, followed by a classy reception at the wonderful Royal Clifton Hotel on the prom in Southport. St Thomas, Lydiate is a wonderful rural parish church and it really had a warm and welcoming feel, both during the wedding rehearsal and of course on the big day itself. While the Clifton is Southport’s premier venue for weddings and events with a choice of 11 function suites and somewhere I recommend – I’ve worked there four times now over the years.

So, despite a week of rain beforehand, Saturday was dry with great autumn sunshine. Below are a few of my highlights of a fantastic day and a couple of black and white conversions which of course were included in the wedding package.

Liner Hotel wedding photographs

A fun evening at The Liner Hotel with Stephen and Lisa

I had a great time taking photos at the wedding party of Stephen and Lisa. They got married in Spain a few weeks ago but decided to have an evening back here in Liverpool at The Liner Hotel for those friends and family who couldn’t make it abroad. They didn’t need one of my full wedding packages and contacted me about the special evening they had planned. They wanted a couple of hours of photography, to get some nice group shots of themselves and their guests and also a flavour of the celebrations; the cake, the entertainment and the dancing. We cut a deal and had a ball with loads of fun shots of themselves and their friends and family on the night. Here are some highlights.

Mel and Ben at Combermere Abbey

Mel and Ben’s wedding photographs at Combermere Abbey

I was lucky enough to be Mel and Ben’s wedding photographer a couple of weeks back. They choose Combermere Abbey, on the Shropshire and Cheshire borders, as their venue and it was absolutely stunning. The venue has a series of cottages, so the wedding party can stay right at the venue, which is brilliant. And there are quite a few really nice hotels in the towns surrounding, so it is great location-wise. Mel and Ben booked the Gold Wedding photography package with me, so I was with them all day. We started early with the bridal preparations, in the fantastic Lodge Cottage.

Wedding entertainment

We were blessed with the weather – although it was forecast rain all day, it held out until the evening. So the four piece orchestra was able to set up outside, to greet the guests and the wedding party as they approached the Glasshouse, where the ceremony took place. Also the lack of wet weather meant we could fully utilise the wonderful gardens and grounds around the venue, for some wonderful backdrops to the photography.

Mel and Ben had a great, fun packed day and it was easy to work with them, so friendly and relaxed. It was an absolute pleasure to be with them on their special day and definately the highlight of my season so far! So if you are getting married at the fantastic Combermere Abbey, please get in touch, I’m happy to discount my prices for you for this particular venue.

West Derby Wedding, Liverpool

Wedding photography at St Pauls Church, West Derby

The lovely couple Christine and James had a traditional family wedding ceremony at their local church, St Pauls in West Derby, Liverpool, Merseyside. The weather was fabulous and we able to take some group shots in the church grounds, both before and after the ceremony. After a short afternoon break, the reception continued in the adjacent church hall. Here are a few of my favourite photographs from their big day!
