Here are the highlights from Claire and Ciaran’s awesome wedding at Thornton Manor on the Wirral. Thornton Manor is one of my all time fave venues… it really is a dream venue not only for the couple… but for the photographer as well. There are sooooo many amazing spaces to use for pictures I find myself really spoilt for choice.
Claire’s bridal preparations took place in the Lady Lever Bedroom at Thornton Manor which is an absolutely stunning room… the girls where all giggles when I arrived and I just knew it was going to be an awesome day.
Ciaran’s preparations took place in the Gardeners Cottage at Thornton Manor in the morning, after which they scooted over to the Grand Hall in the house to meet Claire’s dad and then did what all men should do before any wedding ceremony… go for a pint! The destination for said beer was The Seven Stars in Thornton Hough and naturally I joined them :)
After a swift pint we all headed back to the wedding at Thornton Manor where both the ceremony and reception took place.
Big high 5 goes out to Claire’s Aunty Janet who made the wonderful wedding cake… could be a business there for you Janet, you did such an awesome job.
Most of the details for their wedding at Thornton Manor where down to Claire and I really loved the wedding breakfast menu which was based around the places both Claire and Ciaran grew up.
The wedding stationary for their wedding at Thornton Manor including the seating plan, menus, name cards, order of service’s etc where all handmade by Claire which I find astonishing, and the wedding postbox was handmade by John (bride’s father)… such a creative family!
One of the most memorable moments from their wedding was the announcement of Mr & Mrs Wrynne into the music room for the wedding breakfast, they burst in to the tune of Kasabian’s ‘Fire’ – LOVE that song!
Claire also bought her dress from Oxfam which just goes to show you don’t need to break the bank to bag a gorgeous dress
The weather wasn’t too kind but this didn’t dampen their spirits and an amazing day was had by all!
If you too are planning your wedding at Thornton Manor then please don’t hesitate to get in touch… we would love to help.
