Oooh where to start?! Michelle and Marc are a cool couple whose vintage chic wedding with a modern twist has some fabulous details – stunning rustic country flowers, tweed and bow ties for the boys, a 1950’s styled bridal dress, with cornflower blue bridesmaids… oh it’s beautiful and there’s so much to tell! They married at Peover Golf Club in Cheshire, on the hottest day of last year – and their wedding photos tell such a magical story.
The beautiful bride and gorgeous groom chose Pixies in the Cellar to photograph their wedding. Peter and Sara – aka the Pixies! – told me, “We really enjoyed the whole day, Meesh and Marc had thought of everything for the day to run smoothly and for it to be very personal to them. What really shines through in the pictures is how much fun everyone had, it way just a great group of family and friends enjoying a great day with some very very summery weather!”
This is wonderful and I hope it inspires you for your own wedding day – especially if you’re in Cheshire: do check out Pixies in the Cellar if you haven’t booked your wedding photographer yet!

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer?
Peter (Pixies in the Cellar) had known Marc and his bunch of friends for years (the Hyde surf dudes – no sea anywhere, but at every occasion Marc and his mates would be off to Abersoch) and knew he liked his previous photography and art work. It was the hottest day of the year and Meesh needed some convincing to brave the heat, but it was worth it and many of their friends have commented on the “wedding photos being the best they’d ever seen” 🙂

Imagine a quintessentially English church, with rich dark interiors – you’re there! Tricky for photography, but looked absolutely stunning and a very smiley vicar too 🙂
General styling – did your venue need much decoration?
Meesh and Marc definitely have an arty flare, so were happy to make lots of decorations 🙂 Two huge ‘M’s for the fireplace surrounded by pictures of their grandparents. Table place names were vintage keys with luggage tags attached, order of service, cake toppers, table plan, invitations you name it they made it and all credit to Meesh and Marc as everything looked top notch 🙂
