Story filled West Tower Wedding Photographer. Documentary wedding photography by award winning photographer Gavin Alexander

A CANVAS READY TO PAINT

I had an incredible time being Joel and Sarah’s West Tower Wedding Photographer. My unobtrusive photography style fitted well as these guys didn’t want a camera in their faces all day apart from a few of my signature relaxed portraits.  

The atmosphere was electric, the gorgeous summer sun and blue skies set the scene for West Tower to sing in all its glory. 

It was nice to see Joel and Sarah’s wedding guests enjoying the lawn games, pimms and canapes as the beautiful grounds wrapped around them.

SUMMER WEDDING AT WEST TOWER

Sarah and Joel are beautiful people. I met these guys a couple of years ago at my photography studio in Liverpool, Formby and we instantly hit it off.

Sarah’s Father is a priest. He’s such a lovely man, kind hearted, funny and people naturally gravitate towards him.

During our first coffee meeting Sarah mentioned that her Dad was going to be the official Priest to marry them both. Well, let me tell you, we all got a bit emotional.

I’m not just a photographer, I enjoy people watching, witnessing how family interacts with each other. My excitement was bubbling when I was told that Sarah’s Dad would marry them both. During our meeting I found myself foreseeing the emotion and relationship between them and to be honest it did bring a tear to my eye. 

It’s a privilege and honour as a Father to walk your daughter down the aisle. Just imagine how it must feel being the main guy to conduct the marriage ceremony. 

It gets even better!! Then they told me that they had booked West Tower Country House Hotel in Aughton for their wedding reception. 

CREATIVE FREEDOM

Joel and Sarah booked me to document their wedding day through my artistic vision. 

They said they had fell in love with my imagery from the start and knowing that my approach was as a storyteller through observation. They trusted me to capture their story through my eyes.

THE ENCHANTED WEDDING VENUE

Stepping into the enchanted grounds of West Tower gets me every time. Huge sweeping driveway, beautiful rich landscaped grounds, rural views and the incredible 1885 Country House.

A West Tower Wedding Photographers dream. There are numerous places you can hide in plain sight to capture the real moments.

Using the grounds as huge canvas I began to paint the picture and the storytelling process began.

THE BALLROOM

I can only describe the Ballroom as breathtaking. With its neutral decor you can dress this reception room to match your theme. Once inside the ballroom the outer grounds reach inside through the huge full length patio doors.

The natural light pours in providing a sense of freshness. If the weather permits you can also have your wedding ceremony outside.

OUTDOOR WEDDING

West Tower provide a beautiful area on the grounds for you to say “I DO”. A sweeping path way leads you to a stunning purpose built white wedding ceremony pagoda. 

Imagine marrying the love of your life in the open air surrounded by fresh smelling flowers and the people that love you the most sat just behind you drinking in the atmosphere. 

After your ceremony you and guest are able to relax and have fun enjoying food and drinks on the terrace. It’s a perfect setting to enjoy lawn games and sample the many beverages served by the exceptional bar staff. 

YOUR WEDDING BREAKFAST

The dining experience at West Tower is exquisite. You and your wedding guest will thoroughly enjoy your wedding breakfast served by very helpful and professional waiting on staff.

EVENING

Your evening celebrations are enjoyed in the ballroom. Be sure to check out Steve Mitchell the resident wedding DJ. Steve is a crowd pleaser and will have your dance floor packed all evening. 

Steve has a unique way of introducing your first dance. Believe me it’s not to missed. 

The dance floor is in the middle of the ballroom proving a perfect party atmosphere. During the summer nights the patio doors can be left open bringing the outside in. This way if your guests want to enjoy the sunset and the cool breeze there not to far from the action.
