Sue and Graham’s wedding was a lovely intimate family affair, set in the family run RiverHill Hotel in Oxton on the Wirral, well known locally for it’s great food 🙂
While Sue and the girls were getting ready (and drinking prosecco), I took Sue’s dress outside for a couple of shots. Love this one with the light coming through the branches!
Onto the RiverHill, it’s the first time we’ve been to this venue, despite it being just a few miles from our home in Irby, and I was really impressed. The hotel and gardens are excellent, and the staff are all extremely friendly and helpful, which is not always the case at some venues!
So if you’re looking for a venue for a smaller wedding on the Wirral, it’s well worth having a look 🙂
Before the ceremony, Graham was looking pretty confident compared to most grooms at that part of the day, and was busy welcoming the guests as they arrived.
Here’s Sue & Graham’s signature frame, provided as part of their pre-wedding shoot package. A fun alternative to a guestbook 🙂
Sue arrived in a pristine and unique vintage Rover.
Graham, catching the eye of his bride, as she comes down the aisle ?.
After the ceremony, outside for drinks and canapés:
“Man with sausage”, that’s what this fellow said to me just after taking this shot, which made me laugh. So I couldn’t resist including it here 🙂
After plenty of time to eat, drink and be merry, we set off to nearby Birkenhead Park on The Wirral, for some wedding portraits.
I’m told Birkenhead Park was the blueprint for Central Park in New York. It certainly has some gorgeous quiet areas which are deal for wedding portraits. We try and keep our portrait shots simple, relaxing and fun, and having already photographed Sue and Graham at their pre-wedding shoot (who were originally, like many people, a bit shy), I think they were much more confident and rather enjoyed the tranquil park surroundings.
Back at the RiverHill, it had been transformed for the wedding breakfast.
Lovely rag dolls for the flower girls, what a nice personal touch 🙂
I think I’ll get one of these for Sarah 😉
