The Racquet Club Liverpool
Roanna and Darren’s wedding saw the start my consecutive trio of weddings at the Racquet Club in Liverpool’s city centre. I love this historic, intimate and quirky venue, it was good to be back.
The whole day was at the Racquet Club. I headed up to Roanna’s room to capture her bridal preparations. Roanna and her friends were in the middle of makeup when I arrived – I left them to it. There was some great light in there and I really love the feel it brings to the photos. This was a lovely, relaxed atmosphere which really shows in the final pictures. Once Roanna was in her beautiful wedding dress I headed downstairs to find Darren.
After photographing the action downstairs I followed the crowd upstairs. The Racquet Club has a gorgeous feature spiral staircase which I waited to capture Roanna on.
Once again I want to praise the Liverpool registrars for being their usual fantastic selves. After a lovely wedding service, everyone made their way into the old squash court that’s been converted into a library.
Darren and Roanna didn’t want many posed or family group pictures so the majority of the photography at this wedding was taken journalistically (reportage). I really enjoyed the freedom to roam and capture the day.
They had their speeches were before the food, leaving only the cutting of the cake and first dance to go before I left them to enjoy the rest of their wedding day.
Really enjoyed myself taking these pictures and looking forward to my next wedding also at the Racquet Club!
Here is a selection of pictures from their Racquet Club wedding…
