Stella and William’s wedding at the Sefton Palm House Liverpool was a wedding of 2 parts and really good fun to photograph. As their wedding service was going to be quite late there would be no daylight left after it so Stella and William also booked a post wedding shoot around Sefton Park and the palm house. This blog post is about the wedding day itself and will be followed part 2, their post-wedding photos.
I caught up with Stella and the girls in her room at the Hilton in Liverpool centre and captured her bridal preparations in my usual un-intrusive style. The early afternoon preperations were very relaxed and chilled. Once Stella was in her beautiful dress I took a few bride portraits around the Hiltons spectacular interior.

And then it was time for me to meet up with William at the Palm House. As I arrived at the Palm house Liverpool it was already dusk, by the time Stella arrived the light was gorgeous.
As always I want to praise the Liverpool registrars for their helpful, friendly and professional attitude. It’s always a pleasure to work with them, the freedom they grant makes Brides and Grooms the real winners with stunning unhindered ceremony shots. Their wedding services are always lovely and relaxed.
After the service, Stella and William mingled with their guests in the Palm house. They also had a few cool shots outside in the dark, some confetti and family pics. There was even time for an outfit change for Stella before their wedding breakfast and speeches.
Stella and William had gone to a lot of effort with their first dance. It came after Stella’s 3rd outfit change and was a scene from Dirty Dancing – most impressed!
After their first dance, I left the to enjoy the rest of their wedding day celebrations.
Keep an eye out for part two, their post-wedding shoot. In the meantime here are a few of my favourites from their day…
