This was such an enjoyable wedding to photograph! Heather and Ronnie are just delightful people to be with so spending the day with them and their families was a real treat.
Highlights were stumbling across a ghost tour group just outside St Nicholas Church, complete with ghoulish costumed tour guide and being told that Heather’s brother Steven is none other than the famous YouTuber, Steven Tries. “Sorry mate, but the only Youtube star I’ve really heard of is StampyCat!” Steven handled it well! (He now has nearly 1.5 million subscribers, so well done Steven!)
The Racquet Club did its usual excellent job of not only looking wonderful but also of looking after the wedding party so well. If you’re looking for wedding venues in Liverpool, I recommend the Racquet Club to you – they’re great! I was delighted to discover that there was a fabulous art installation at RIBA North on Mann Island ( Un-veiled by KHBT Architects) consisting of about 60 red sheets of scaffolding cloth hanging from the glass ceiling. They were shaped and cut as different views of the Liverpool skyline and were really imposing – as well as being a phenomenal wedding photography backdrop! It’s been a while since this amazing space had anything even half as cool as Un-Veiled!I think the Mann Island development is probably my most inspiring part of the Liverpool city centre. If you’re getting married near the water, and you want a photographer who knows the area and what it can offer for wedding photography, then please do get in touch. From acres of architecturally modern glass, to Victorian buildings that have made Liverpool’s waterfront into a UN World Heritage Site, this little corner of town has everything an urban wedding photographer could want. Sadly, the Banksy mural adjacent tot he Racquet Club has effectively been stolen by the owner of the building it was sprayed on, but hey, that’s capitalism for you!
Thank you so so much for everything yesterday. It was a pleasure to have you as part of our wedding and you made us feel so relaxed.
Heather & Ronnie Jones
