Wedding Photography at the St George’s Hall in Liverpool
The St George’s Hall in Liverpool is one of the city’s most prominent and iconic buildings. It has recently had the benefit of a £23m refurbishment project and now stands as one of the leading wedding venues in the North of England. This iconic Grade I listed building has the claim of being one of very few places where you could be tried for murder or listen to a concert under the same roof. The accident occurred through a stroke of good fortune during the actual building of the hall. Initially designed as a hall specifically for music festivals, the project ran over budget due to its aspirations of grandeur. However, the architect, Harvey Lonsdale Elmes, was also commissioned to build “assize courts” in the city and by combining both facets, the hall was completed. In 1969, Nikolaus Pevsner who wrote the series of county by county architectural guides books or the Pevsner Architectural Guides, noted that St George’s Hall was, in his opinion, one of the finest neo-grecian buildings of the world. (Neo Grecian being the style of Greek revival architecture found in many buildings in Great Britain of this period). The building is therefore incredibly important as a monument for the City of liverpool, as an architectural heritage site and as a fantastic venue for wedding photography in Liverpool!.
