Mere Brook House Wedding

Liverpool Wedding Photographer

The city of Liverpool in black and white, as seen from Wallasey


What a glorious, albeit temperamental weather wise, day. We had sunshine, we had storms….then we had more sun. Totally amazing. The day started at Andrea and Dan’s Liverpool home, before heading off to Mere Brook House. Their beautiful home is set right on the banks of the Mersey River. This was a stunning location as I am sure you will be able to readily see. The views from their home is just breathtaking. We then made the short walk to Wallasey town hall.

Then the heavens opened. I always say to my couples, fear not the weather, just be brave, and you will get some wonderful images. Dan and Andrea were just that, brave.

After we had eventually dried off….I truly got a good soaking. We headed of to Andrea and Dan’s reception venue. The sun was shining by the time we arrived, and just by the main hall is a stained glass window. Dan and Andrea sat their briefly and this was one of the resulting images.

A truly tender moment between Husband and Wife, one that really encapsulates my more artistic side. I honestly cannot thank Andrea and Dan for inviting me along to share their most special of days, I love working in and around Shropshire, but occasionally I do like to venture further afield too. Liverpool, Chester, Manchester, indeed anywhere in the UK. So if you are looking for that creative soul for your wedding. Please do get in touch.

In the meantime I will leave you with more images from Andrea and Dan’s most beautiful of wedding days. Please do also check out the slideshow right at the end.
