Ellen & Alex were married on a sunny April day in Liverpool and had planned a vintage Navy wedding that was a whole heap of fun. They held their ceremony at St. Margaret Mary’s Church where both sets of their parents had got married – how amazing is that! Deacon Bill conducted a memorable service for Ellen & Alex and they walked out of the church to lots of cheers and a huge amount of confetti!
We then headed to Sefton Park for Ellen & Alex’s portraits, where the light looked beautiful with the sunshine coming through the trees. And then it was on to the reception at HMS Eaglet, where Alex had received his Navy training. I knew that being a creative person, Ellen would be making a lot of the DIY elements for her and Alex’s wedding and the room at HMS Eaglet had come together beautifully. Some of my favourite little touches included the hand stamped table place cards, jam jars of flowers and pictures of friends and family used for the table plan.
The view from HMS Eaglet over to the Liverpool docks was also fantastic and made us really feel like we were on a boat! As someone who’s partial to piratey things, I was in my element photographing the downing of rum, trying on sailor hats and getting to know the Navy lingo. Ellen & Alex even cut their cake with a cutlass – you can’t get more Navy than that!
Thank you to Ellen & Alex for looking after us so well on your big day. And thank you Danielle Boxall, my star second shooter. Congratulations Mr & Mrs McEnanay – here’s your day!
