This was an absolutely brilliant wedding from the first meeting down at Albert Docks to the end of the night partying hard at Oh Me!,Oh My! on the waterfront.
Kathryn and Phil opted to include an engagement shoot with their wedding package. It’s a brilliant opportunity to get to meet me and we break the ice, normally over a coffee and a slice of cake, or a beer. It gives a couple the chance to ask questions about their wedding plans and also to get comfortable in front of the camera. We met at Albert Dock in Liverpool on a lovely early summer evening. We had a quick drink, a bit of chit chat and then we went for a little walkabout round the docks making the most of the glorious evening light.
Here are a couple of examples from the shoot.
I instantly knew that we would have a great time on their wedding day. They were very organised, knew exactly what they wanted, and were incredibly easy to talk to.
So, the big day arrived and I arrived at their home to shoot the bridal preparations, whilst my assistant went off to find Phil and his brother in a city centre hotel for the groom preparation.
We then headed off to the venue for the ceremony, the magnificent Concert Room at St. George’s Hall right in the centre of Liverpool.
We had originally planned to take the formal group shots in the gardens of St. George’s Hall, but building work on the facade meant it was covered in scaffolding! However, it didn’t matter as we managed to utilise the front steps and the rain held off just long enough to get what we needed.
Then we all loaded up and headed down to the waterfront to Oh Me!,Oh My! for the reception, complete with a trip up to the roof terrace for some portraits.
