Creative Wedding Photography

I can’t believe it’s a year since I last shared photographs from a wedding at the amazing Sefton Palm House in Liverpool! This wedding venue has to be one of my absolute favourites to photograph. A glorious Victorian-era domed greenhouse housing a variety of tropical plants, Sefton Palm House is a unique setting for any type of wedding. That enormous glass ceiling lets in light from every direction, negating the need for complicated lighting setups (or any lights at all, actually) and allowing the photographer to focus on capturing moment after moment.

Sefton Palm House is basically a giant Victorian greenhouse that moonlights as a wedding venue. Think tropical heat, exotic flora & candlelit fine-dining. A really unique venue for any wedding and one which is incredibly fun to photograph.

The bride & groom, Charlotte & Simon, held their wedding ceremony beneath that wonderful glass dome. Charlotte had ten unofficial (but still official, if you know what I mean) bridesmaids, all individually styled yet still looking beautifully coordinated, no easy task. The bride wore a Justin Alexander wedding dress that simply radiated, paired with a sparkly pair of Jimmy Choos, of course! Charlottle & Simon’s daughter Lily had the very important task of being the flower girl. So many of my favourite moments of the wedding day revolved around Lily and her antics! Getting her hair done after waking up from a nap, hugging Simon at the end of the aisle, running away from Simon after the ceremony, the faces pulled during the wedding breakfast speeches; pure gold!

One of the best men, Jack, held the wedding rings while the bride & groom exchanged their vows, watched by a huge gathering of their family & friends.

Following the nuptials, the wedding guests enjoyed the hospitality of the Palm House staff with cocktails & canapés beneath the intermittent summer sun. The great thing about a wedding at the Palm House is the weather doesn’t matter; it’s always warm, it’s always light, and the backdrop of tropical plants and Victorian ironwork looks magnificent from every angle. While Charlotte & Simon enjoyed their wedding breakfast, I had a wander around and read all about the history of the Palm House. First opened in 1896, it measures 25m high and has a base of red granite all the way from the Isle of Mull. If that doesn’t impress you, how about the 3,710 flat panes of glass, all individually cut? Yes, I’m now a fountain of knowledge.

A real highlight for me were the wedding speeches; Simon’s brother was merciless in his best man speech, then Jack got Simon up to perform an impromptu drum & bass set, wearing a crown as part of his superstar DJ attire.

It was a pleasure to photograph Charlotte & Simon on their wedding day. They were keen to enjoy their day with a minimum of photo fuss, unposed and natural as possible. Just the way I like to work!

I was helped on the day by my good friend and fellow Northerner Steven Rooney Photography. Don’t forget to check out his site too (after you’ve looked through mine first, of course)!
