Romantically depicted in 1791 as an “immense City which stands like a Venice upon water” by Thomas Erskine, 1st Baron of Erskine, Liverpool is host to a rich history of music, arts, entertainment and culture.

Everything from historical architecture from the 16th Century, to modern state-of-the-art buildings features across this famous city, creating vast opportunities for the photographs of your wedding day to reflect almost every chosen taste and style.

Liverpool Pier HeadIn the city centre, Liverpool Pier Head is a fabulously versatile place with key landmarks such as The Three Graces, Grade II listed buildings and sympathetically designed memorials. Each one of these symbolic architectural highlights serves as charming backdrops to your wedding pictures, with the additional element of river views adding yet another dimension to your images.

Wavertree botanical gardensIn contrast, the Wavertree Botanic Park and Gardens offers an intimate, peaceful outdoor setting adorned with mature trees and colourful flowers, plants and shrubs. This Grade II Victorian garden is listed on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens, and it encompasses the Curator’s Lodge.

Features such as the Walled Garden, statues, fountains and fishponds all have the fantastic photographic potential, particularly during the spring and summer seasons when the flowers are in full bloom.

Chinese ArchesAlternatively, The Chinese Arch, Chinatown is a spectacularly vibrant and colourful landmark paying homage to the longstanding Chinese community here. Chinatown is a wonderful setting for a vivid, unconventional bride looking for somewhere brimming character and masses of appeal.
