A Classic Wedding at Thornton Manor | Joy & Rich

thornton manor wedding photographer

It was a beautiful spring morning as Joy & Rich prepared to say I do at the Church of the Resurrection & All Saints in Caldy Village on the Wirral.  Unfortunately the weather took a turn for the worse as the day wore on, but with a reception venue as beautiful and as cosy as Thornton Manor nobody minded at all.

I have a real soft spot for Thornton Manor as I attended the local primary school in Thornton Hough when the 3rd Viscount Leverhulme was alive.  Each year he’d invite the whole school to the Manor for a summer picnic and we’d all have a great time exploring the grounds and stuffing our faces full of cake!  As a child I never would have imagined I’d be back twenty years later photographing a wedding there… it was lovely to revisit the house after all those years and see it so full of life again.
