Hoylake Beach Wedding on the Wirral - Louise & Idris

Updated: Mar 10, 2022

Couple wedding portrait at Hoylake Beach on the wirral overlooking Hilbre Island

I first met Louise and Idris at their pre wedding shoot (blog post coming soon!) which took place at Trentham Gardens in Stoke-on-Trent. We spent the afternoon taking a wander around the beautiful gardens and chatting about anything and everything including, of course, their upcoming wedding! I will always recommend having a pre wedding shoot as they are a great way to get yourselves comfortable in front of a camera and it's nice to get to know you a little bit before I rock up on your wedding day brandishing cameras in your face for 10 hours! 'The Bouquet' package I offer includes one in the price too! You can check out my packages here.

Now, onto what this blog post is actually supposed to be about! I was honoured to photograph Louise and Idris' wedding day in February of 2019 on the Wirral which, fun fact, is where I'm originally from! It's always such a joy to go back to where I grew up and this day was no exception. Especially since we got to go to one of my favourite locations: The Beach! (Even though it was freezing cold...).

The Wirral provides an enormous array of beautiful backdrops for any kind of wedding you could possibly want. Louise & Idris chose to get married at St. John the Baptist Church with a garden marquee reception to follow complete with a string quartet!

For their couple portraits, the obvious choice was to take a stroll down the ridiculously long Stanley Road (those of you from the Wirral can commiserate with me) to Red Rocks at Hoylake Beach. It was a stunning overcast day, a photographers dream, but as it was so cold we only had about 10 minutes to squeeze in our couple portraits but Louise & Idris were absolute champs and I think we got some great shots!

I often say that as a wedding photographer you spend the day chasing the sound of laughter and this whole day was filled with it. Everywhere I looked, everyone was having an absolute ball.

Makes my job that little bit easier.

And without further adieu, here's some of my favourite photographs from the day...
