The Alicia Hotel Wedding | Sarah and Stu

The Alicia Hotel wedding

Since photographing fellow wedding photographers, Sarah and Stu’s engagement photographs in Liverpool centre last year, Louise and I have come to look on them as friends, Stu and I have even shot together. With this in mind, I knew their blessing on UK soil was going to be an enjoyable day.

Sarah and Stu were married earlier in the month in New York but didn’t want to leave their family and friends out so decided to say their vows again at The Alicia Hotel here in Liverpool. The Alicia Hotel is a great venue situated right opposite Sefton park.

After bumping into Stu in the hotel bar I went up to Sarah’s room to photograph her bridal preparations and chat about the New York leg of their wedding. Once in her dress, I made my way back down to the ceremony room to capture her arrival and their ceremony.

Being right on the edge of Sefton Park and having perfect weather we had a brief visit for a few photos in the splendour of the Autumn colour.

After Sarah and Stu’s first dance I set up a photo booth in one of the rooms where guests could come and have some fun!

Here are a few of my favourites from their wedding…

  • OMG these are sooooooooooooooo freakin’ awesome as our NY photographer would say!! We’ve just seen these tasters of the day and we absolutely love them – there is humour, beauty, emotion, art, memories and special people in all of them! The day seems so long ago now but watching these brought all the colour and excitement of the day rushing back! I’m so excited to see the rest! Thank you Rob, really, from the bottom of our hearts for all of your hard work during that long 9-hour shoot – we really loved everything you did for us and our guests loved the photo booth… maybe a little too much! ;) You really are a talented photographer and now a good friend too! Love Sarah & Stu x

  • Hey Sarah and Stu, it was both a pleasure and an honour to shoot your fantastic day! Glad you love the teasers, I’ll look forward to showing you the rest real soon


  • Fantastic set Rob, all of them class. Particular fave is the B/W near the end. Great work

  • I love the Black & White conversion on the portrait of the bride, and that last image is wonderful.

  • love those boots!
