Saturday was an unusual day - there was NO rain! Lorna and Carl were so lucky after the kind of summer we've been having. And I was lucky because I was joined by Aaron Rose Wedding Films - I love working with Matt and his team as we work effortlessly together, to the point where you'd think we were one team.
Lorna and Carl's wedding, which planned to perfection by Lorna's mum, was at the gorgeous little church in Knowsley Village, an unusual church with it's central pews. And it was so nice to have the service taken by Carl's Uncle Geoff, with readings by Lorna's brother and his partner, making it a truly family affair. The bridesmaids looked spectacular in Manolo-Blahnik-Blue with a gorgeous one shoulder dress that suited each of them. And the bride looked perfect in her white dress - ok, ok, Carl, you looked good too, as did your groomsmen! The flowers were by Fishlocks on Castle Street in Liverpool, who had created a lovely vintage look with the colours they'd put together.
The wedding went on to Liverpool Town Hall, which is one of the city's unsung treasures! I just love the place. And the history to it too - the stairs (I learned this off Dave who compered the wedding reception) are what the stairs for the Titanic were modelled on! Lorna and Carl looked fabulous on the stairs too, as you can see below.
One of the things I love about the Town Hall is that the speeches can be done in the Council Chamber which is such an amazing backdrop, though I felt for Carl's younger brother and bestman who had never done a speech before and had everyone's faces looking right him. But he did a great job, and even had people laughing, which isn't easy to do.
So here is a sneak peek of Lorna and Carl's day, which ended with Xander and the Peace Pirates - I think Rob could have stayed all night to listen to them play, but I forced him to come home!
