As a local wedding photographer, once again we attended a wedding at the very popular West Tower Hotel. It’s an award winning Wedding Venue just on the outskirts of Ormskirk near Liverpool. It’s a great venue for us as it’s very picturesque and only a 15 minute drive away …….. win win. We went to shoot the wedding of Sarah & Steve.
A very unusual wedding cake. Half was a Star Wars Theme, the other half more traditional – thus both Sarah & Steve were happy!
The day started off with gorgeous weather. Hence we got shots of the groom and his grooms men goofing around the grounds of the West Tower Hotel. Great fun, very relaxed. As guests arrived, we got shots of them too mingling, drinking and just waiting for the main event.
Sarah made the decision to have her ceremony of the lawn in the gazebo – she took a chance as the weather forecast was not good. But the weather held. It was picture perfect. The flower displays were stunning. Meanwhile we got shots of Sarah in the Bridal suite.
Meanwhile Steve, his two best men and guests wait for Sarahs’ entrance . This meant walking down the sweeping staircase at the rear of the West Tower Hotel, onto the lawn where the gazebo is positioned.
Mum walked her down the aisle, through the beautiful flowers. She made the right decision to have her ceremony on the lawn.
No sooner had the ceremony finished then the wind and rain arrived ……. unfortunately that meant inside to photographs … what a pity. Still everyone was great fun and were very relaxed around us.
Mum and the two best men gave speeches – even the children were laughing!
We had a 10 minute spot when the rain stopped. The sun came out briefly, we managed to gather everyone up for a group and confetti shot, and managed to take a last coupe of shots of Sarah &Steve on the rear lawn. The views are across towards Liverpool and the Irish Sea. Believe it or not as they walked the rain started to come down quite heavily.
A great day
