Belinda & Tom’s Classic-and-Quirky-Chic Meols Hall Wedding


Can you believe it’s Monday once again? As always. this week will be chock-full of unique inspiration so please check in whenever you can!

Belinda and Tom had a beautiful, classic, and quirky-chic wedding set in a historical manor house in England… I can’t quite articulate the gorgeousness of this location so I will let the picture below convey what I can’t say in words.

What struck me first about this submission was the artistic camera work by Steven Rooney of Natural Touch Photography. And then I saw the rest of the event’s images and knew that I had to share them with all of you. Here’s the talented Steven to give us an idea of what happened that day:

Belinda and Tom were married in the Tithe Barn at Meols Hall set in Churchtown in Southport, England. The atmosphere was superb for the whole day and both the bride and groom looked great and were so relaxed due to the support of their family and close friends. The rain was on and off throughout the day but it’s not a feature of the day that will stick in the mind. The day was full of fun and emotion and all of the guests had a brilliant time celebrating the wedding of this couple who were clearly very happy and in love.

Isn’t Belinda strikingly beautiful? Here she is to tell us more about her and Tom:

Tom and I live in Lancashire but neither of us are from here. Tom is from Derbyshire and I am from West Yorkshire. We moved here several years ago before we knew each other and met through work, we are both police officers. We don’t live anywhere near where we got married but thought no matter where we do it our friends and families will have to travel anyway.

The lovely bride on planning her special day:

When we decided to plan our wedding we were open minded and just wanted the atmosphere to be fun and relaxed and to ensure everyone had a great time. When we were looking for a venue we came across Meols Hall just by browsing the internet, when we went to look at it we both knew straight away that it was the right place for us.

Also when choosing a photographer it was important that we felt relaxed with them. Steven Rooney was ideal and we had numerous comments on how good he was at our wedding. We hardly noticed he was there, which we think is a good thing!

Belinda shares that Tom’s awesome silver shoes from Kurt Geiger were specially made for him!

This shot totally captures the love between the two! Belinda shares a few more behind-the-scenes details:

I think the overall feel we wanted was simply a fun relaxed atmosphere. I didn’t want to go overboard with decorations but it was easy to get carried away. The idea of the bridesmaids and I wearing wellies was after speaking with Steven and that the weather would likely be wet! So me being me, I decided they would be purple in keeping with the theme and I put little diamantes on them for a bit of sparkle. I love things that sparkle and candles, so that alone became part of the theme along with purple.

Purple wellies to the rescue!

The little bridesmaid dress was specially made for the little girl and is one of a kind. So adorable!

Advice from the handsome couple:

For anyone planning a wedding, try to be organised, know what you want and don’t let others influence you. And if you make your own invites etc, leave extra time for mistakes because they will happen!
