Wedding Photography at St. Georges Hall, Liverpool
Last year, Sarah and Fabrice asked me to photograph their wedding at St Gorges Hall. It’s a venue I’ve been to many times in my 15 year career as a wedding photographer, which is not surprising as this is where most civil marriages take place in Liverpool.
Located in the centre of Liverpool, opposite Liverpool Lime Street station and the Empire theatre, this is a truly magnificent and imposing building. It’s iconic in the city and has been used for many blockbuster films and television series over the years. The front of the building comprises a central portico of 16 huge stone columns and a wide staircase leading down towards a statue of Benjamin Disreili. To the rear of the building you’ll find St. John’s gardens and cenotaph.
Weddings at St. George’s Hall
Engaged couples choosing to get married at St. Georges Hall have the opportunity to choose from several great spaces for their wedding ceremony, including the Concert Room, where Sarah and Fabrice’s civil marriage took place, and the Great Hall, which is where there reception was held. Charles Dickens once described the concert room as the most perfect room in the world, and he might be right, but check out the images below and decide for yourself.
An Anglo, French Egyptian wedding in Liverpool
Sarah and Fab have roots in different parts of the world, so as you can imagine there was a bit of a travel theme running through this wedding. We had previously met up for an engagement shoot in Liverpool and since that point, I knew that this wedding was going to be a lot of fun. It was a pretty full-on day, starting with a bit of documentary coverage of the bride and bridesmaids getting ready at home near Sefton Park. It was great to have my friend and fellow photographer Andrew Keher along to second shoot and cover the things on the groom’s side too in the build-up to the ceremony. The wedding itself took place in the very awesome concert room which never disappoints. Afterward we found ten minutes to shoot a few portraits on the steps of St. Georges Hall before more festivities. Sarah was brought into the great hall by her father, led by and Egyptian band and belly dancers and the party was officially started.
