Wirral Wedding Photographer with Laura & Andy: Mere Brook House, Thornton Hough

Laura & Andy’s Wedding Photography, Wirral, Merseyside

My first experience of taking wedding photos at the beautiful Mere Brook House in Thornton Hough, Wirral, Merseyside

I recently had the great pleasure of working with a photographer who I have great admiration and respect for – Pete Welsby. When Pete asked me to be his second photographer at his last ever wedding, I was delighted. Having met several years ago, we have recently become great friends and I knew it would not only be a great experience to work with someone whose work I greatly admired, but also a lot of fun! I thank him for this opportunity.

It was the perfect summer’s day for Laura and Andy’s wedding day which began with Laura’s bridal prep in the morning at her Mum Nora’s house. She was so cool and relaxed getting made up and little Isabelle was super-excited to be the bridesmaid of the day. These beautiful ladies looked into the mirrors with delight as they were about to head off for the ceremony.

Such an exciting time as Laura arrived at the stunningly beautiful Our Lady & St. John’s Roman Catholic church in Heswall. Her father ‘Derek’ walked her down the isle looking as proud as a Dad can be giving his daughter away on one of the happiest days of her life! Andrew looked back as she walked towards him and there was nothing but smiles and true love in their eyes from that point on!

After the ceremony it was straight across the road to get some photos with their beloved dogs Bea and Ella on the lawn, and what perfect little posers those pups were! Pete proceeded to take the formal group photos whilst I took some candid shots before heading off to the wedding reception venue. The evening reception was held at the beautiful Edwardian Mere Brook House, a stunning country house in Thornton Hough offering high class services for the perfect wedding party. The four acres of grounds include a beautiful garden with sunken dell, sheltered by mature trees with paddocks and a woodland area beyond, running down to the Mere Brook. Quite simply, the perfect surroundings for Laura and Andy’s wedding portraiture.
