Whatever your big-day theme, vibe or vision, there's one thing we can all agree on: weddings are all about love. It might be easy to lose sight of it amid the chaos of planning, but nevertheless its the reason we're all here. Weddings celebrate love in all its forms. Of course, everyone is gathered to celebrate the love between the two of you, but they're there because they, in turn, love you. There's also the pride and adoration on the faces of our couples' parents or guardians that we can't wait to see in our real wedding features. Even capturing a misty-eyed look from, or for, a beloved fur baby warms the heart. Certainly, we could all do with some good cheer so, we decided to ask the region's wedding photographers to share their favourite loving looks.

I love this one by Stacey Oliver Photography (https://staceyoliverphotography.co.uk)!

Real bride Aimee says, "I told Sami we were going to Centre Parcs after the wedding, but on the morning of, I'd made a jigsaw for her to put together, which depicted the island in the Maldives we were actually going to!"

“Organisation is one of my super powers,” real bride Kerry says. “I have colour co-ordinated spreadsheets for everything, including going on holiday. So, when it came to the wedding I had to delve deeper to pull off the magical day we wanted. What started off making a few notes and a timetable for the day ended up turning into a full blown eight-page wedding manual! It included who needed to be where and at what time, along with meticulous information about which tasks people needed to complete, how and when. It even included things like how fast the horse and carriage travels in miles per minute (one mile every eight minutes by the way), plus supplier information, names, emails, contact, telephones and websites, and so, so much more. Now, I know that this makes me sound like a bridezilla, but everyone can (hopefully) vouch for me that I wasn't. It was a collection of information following discussions with suppliers and it just felt that the, now famous, manual was a great central place to collate it all!”

Tucked away in the heart of the Liverpool City Centre, this one-of-a-kind venue offers a picturesque, idyllic oasis away from the hustle and bustle.
It's an iconic landmark in the city and holds a wealth of history and memories – now it's time to make your wedding day part of that! From 1952, St Luke's Bombed Out Church has been categorised as an official Grade II listed building, and due to its moving history, the church has since become a managed ruin that's home to community projects, events, weddings and more. Specialising in bespoke big days, where no amount of guests is too few, the team will work with you to devise a seating plan and build the wedding of your dreams from the ground up since this is the epitome of a blank canvas venue. Maximum capacity is 250 and price and layout are discussed based on your requests.
