My Favourite Wedding Venues in Merseyside and West Lancashire

With photographing so many weddings I guess it's inevitable that I have got to a point over the years where I have my favourite wedding venues in Merseyside and West Lancashire. In fact I could probably say that for the whole North West my favourite wedding venues all fall within Merseyside and West Lancashire.

Over the coming weeks I will pick out my top venues and do a mini feature on them with wedding photographs from weddings I have photographed there, so that you can hear from a Merseyside and West Lancashire wedding photographer's perspective what it is like to have your wedding at these venues. 

One thing I have noticed as a common theme through all of my favourite wedding venues in Merseyside and West Lancashire is that as well as being lovely venues, it's the quality of service, the way the staff are that really puts them on the list. It doesn't matter how gorgeous a venue is, if the staff don't treat you well, or the food isn't up to scratch, then it generally spoils the whole experience.

Watch this space for The West Tower Country House Hotel, Knowsley Hall and Hope Street Hotel to name just a few for starters. If you got married at any of these places and want to share your own experience of your fabulous wedding at your wedding venue, please get in touch, we'd love to hear from you.

And wedding venues, if you would like your venue to be featured, and I've worked at your venue and had a great experience there, then please get in touch as I'd love to feature you.

Iain and Louise Marry at Knowsley Hall - A Truly Beautiful Couple at a Truly Beautiful Venue!

I really enjoyed photographing Iain and Louise's wedding - from the first moment I met them I thought they were fabulous and loving people to be around, and that came out even more on their wedding day. Everything was styled with an understated elegance, and the couple fitted right in at Knowsley Hall where they had their ceremony and reception. Here is a little sneak peak of their photographs - can't wait to show them the rest!

David and Gill's Liverpool Wedding and Reception at Knowsley Hall

Well, after the spring we've had, I guess it was inevitable there would be a wedding day with rain, and I really felt for David and Gill that the heavens decided to open on their day. But it didn't seem to put a dampner on the day.  It was a beautiful ceremony at their church on Rose Lane, Liverpool, followed by the reception at Knowsley Hall.  We managed to get outside for a short time, before the rain came on again, but with Gill's amazing long veil, even the light breeze was a bit of a problem!  Here is just a little sneak peak, with lots more photographs to come for David and Gill to enjoy.

Leon and Lisa Marry at Knowsley Hall

It was blowing a breeze but the sky was perfectly blue for Leon and Lisa's wedding at Knowsley Hall. And their colour scheme worked beautifully with the colours of the Hall too.  It's a shame the wind was so strong because it stopped us getting lots of pictures outdoors, but nonetheless with the grandeur of the Hall we were able to capture some truly beautiful images of a lovely wedding day.  Here is Lisa and Leon's Knowsley Hall Wedding sneak peak.
