We went to see our first venue the other day and are both quite smitten with it, but we want to visit a few others before we settle on one. We a pretty sure that we want a wedding in Liverpool and have spent forever scouring different wedding blogs and local photographers blogs to scout out the venues that we really like that have good photo opportunities. I thought I'd share with you today some gorgeous Liverpool weddings.
This gorgeous wedding at Sefton Park Palm house is shot by Assassynation (the wonderful photographer of Sarah's - A Million Dresses gorgeous wedding!). The palm house is just down the road from us and we did consider it but we think it is out of our budget. I love the vintage car.
I absolutely love this wedding! The gorgeous Candy Anthony dress, the photos in Faulkner Square, the views from the Hope Street Hotel, it's so perfect. I think a Candy Anthony dress is sliiiightly out of my budget, but I know that I don't want a traditional floor length dress (they're too impractical! I want to be able to dance around and go to the toilet easily on my wedding day.)
This couple were married in Italy and then had a huge party for all their family and friends who could't make it at the Liverpool club, The Kazimier. The Kazimier has an awesome fairground feel to it and I can imagine it being a pretty great place for a wedding party. The 'Penelope' sculpture also makes an amazing backdrop for photos.
Another Hope Street Hotel wedding! I love the bright colour pop theme here and those balloons are a great prop idea. Ruth & Rob are too cool, I love their graphic design and brightly coloured accessories (especially the bright yellow socks of the groomsmen!)
Lambanana! A Liverpool icon, it makes a great backdrop for these photos. I love that this couple had their reception at the ace real ale pub, The Ship & Mitre too. Anna Hardy's photography is absolutely gorgeous. The bride, Rose, wore ACE tights and fab earrings too, I love interesting bridal accessories that aren't traditional and/or Melissa x Viv Westwood shoes.
And finally, a wedding on the iconic Albert Dock. I'd love a wedding near the docks to have the famous Liver building in the background, however it is windy about 99% of the time and I don't think that I will make a great windswept bride. This couple had a steampunk circus themed wedding at the restaurant Circo.
Liverpool has some amazing wedding venues for both the ceremony and reception, it's making it hard for us to decide! We know that we don't want a church ceremony as neither of us are religious and it wouldn't feel comfortable to us, but that almost makes it harder for us to choose as there's too much choice out there. Do we have the ceremony and reception all in the same place or have a separate ceremony and move on for the reception? Registry office or country house ceremony? Where can we have nice photos taken after the ceremony? So many questions!
Anyone have any words of wisdom for us for deciding on a venue?
