Meols Hall Wedding Photography

Last Saturday Marie and I shoot the wedding of Stacey and Paul at Meols Hall, Southport’s historical manor house dating back to the early 12th Century. Set in one hundred acres of private parkland close to the picturesque village of Churchtown, this is one of the oldest settlements on the Lancashire coast. Within the grounds of Meols Hall is the Tithe Barn, which provides one of the most beautiful settings for a wedding anywhere in England.

The day started with us arriving at Staceys House for the preparation shots. Excited chatter and a general buzz filled the house.

Great shoes!

Stacey of course looked stunning and her bridesmaids looked beautiful in lemon, the colour really did reflect the feeling of the day, that light summer feeling. Paul with his 2 daughters Holli & Abbi.

The ceremony took place in the Tithe Barn. Serious, emotional and full of laughter. The ceremony had it all.

Opposite Meols Hall is the Botanical gardens where Stacey and Paul wanted the majority of their shots taken. Marie & I headed off on foot just in front of the wedding car, which drove slowly to give us time to get there just ahead of them. We had a great time there, a photographers dream.

Following the meal Tilleymints Ice Cream was served (by Marie, in her other role) for desert and the bridal party had a great time posing for photos.

We had a really lovely day and enjoyed spending time with Stacey & Paul and their families.  Meols Hall staff looked after all of us and nothing was too much trouble.
