Alicia Hotel Liverpool Wedding Photography
Sarah & Gareth

I know, I know, itâ€™s an obvious and rather hackneyed reference to Liverpoolâ€™s finest export (apart from the football team in red, of course â€“ apologies all you Toffees fans out thereâ€¦), but love really is all you need. And Iâ€™m happy to say that there was plenty of that evident at the wedding of Sarah and Gareth at the Alicia Hotel in Liverpool earlier this month.
To be honest I rarely venture out of the southeast to photograph weddings â€“ not that I donâ€™t want to of course, but as I market myself primarily as a South London Wedding Photographer thatâ€™s where most of my enquiries and clients tend to come from. I was referred by a good friend of mine Hazel, who I had the pleasure of attending University with back in the day (I wonâ€™t tell you how long ago that was, itâ€™s all really rather embarrassingâ€¦!)
So with suitcase packed I dared to make the trip north of Watford, and was amazed to find that thereâ€™s a whole world outside of London! Whoâ€™d have thunk?! In all seriousness Iâ€™d visited Liverpool before as a scraggy teenager, so was thrilled to have the opportunity to visit this fantastic city again.
The wedding didnâ€™t let me down. Sarah and Gareth are two of the nicest people youâ€™ll have the pleasure of meeting. Unassuming and down to earth, and their friends and family were exactly the same. I always find it a huge privilege when Iâ€™m allowed into a coupleâ€™s world for the day â€“ as a photographer, youâ€™re not there solely to capture beautiful images, but also to mingle and chat to all the guests. In other words, youâ€™re an honorary friend of the couple for the day (and Iâ€™d like to think that this friendship will last long after the wedding day is over).
Anyway, enough of my philosophising â€“ here are some of the best photos from the day:
