Wirral Wedding Photographer - Thornton Hall Hotel.

Thornton Hall is one of my favourite venues to shoot at, so when I met up with Phillipa & Stephen to discuss their plans, I was really looking forward to the big day. They are a lovely couple and we're an absolute dream to work with. 

The day started off with Bridal prep at the Bride's parent s home, where I was made to feel very welcome by everyone and was offered lots of tea and coffee, which is always a bonus! In between the coffee drinking I took all of my usual prep shots, such as hair and make-up, plus all of the usual detail shots, such as flowers, jewellery and shoes. Then a VW camper van arrived to take the Bridal party to the church for the ceremony. 

After capturing some candid photo's at the beautiful church ceremony we headed outside for some confetti shots and then the bride and groom hopped in the camper van to Thornton Hall Hotel for the Wedding reception. 

We made the most of the camper van after arrival by setting up some group shots next to it and then into the beautiful gardens for some more group photographs, whilst a singer performed inside to entertain the guests. After the bride and groom had settled in and had a chance to talk to everyone and grab a drink, I took them off on their own into the gardens to get some Wedding Portraits. 

After I took some photographs of the room, the guests all filled in and welcomed the Bride & Groom, before the hilarious speeches ensued! 

Later on we headed back outside for some sunset photographs, before the cake cutting and first dance.

Thank you Philippa and Stephen for letting me be a part of your day and thank you Thornton Hall Hotel for being a great host!
