Thornton Manor Waterside Pavilion – Charlotte & Chris’s wedding

Thornton Manor Waterside Pavilion

Thornton Manor is different to most Wirral wedding venues, it’s actually 4 venues in 1. There’s the iconic Manor House itself, former home to the famous Leverhulme family. But the grounds are very extensive, allowing space for 3 marquee style venues, the Lakeside Marquee, the Walled Garden Marquee, and the Waterside Pavilion. The latter is actually the smallest of the three, but it’s ideal for all but the largest weddings, and it actually has the most picturesque setting in our opinion.

Documantary Wedding Photographers – Wirral

We started the day at Charlotte’s parent’s lovely home in Lower Heswall. Our style of wedding photography is very unobtrusive, so we concentrate on capturing moments as they happen, rather than setting things up. The atmosphere with Charlotte and the girls was really fun and relaxed.

Saint Peter’s Church in Lower Heswall

Saint Peter’s is one of the most beautiful churches on the wirral. Situated in the quiet village of Lower Heswall, parts of the building date back to 1306. I love thinking about how many couples have married there over the centuries.

Wedding Reception in the Waterside Pavilion – Thornton Manor

After the marriage ceremony Charlotte and Chris headed over to Thornton Manor if her dad’s F-Type Jaguar. It was perfect summer weather for the perfect marquee wedding. The Waterside Pavilion was decked out in grand style ready for the wedding breakfast.
