Liverpool Wedding Photographer

Liverpool Wedding Photographer

A Liverpool wedding photographer based in Salford? From my base in Exchange Quay in Salford, a mere 30 miles away, I’m close enough to the start of the M602 that Liverpool only feels like a hop, skip, and a jump along the motorway. Liverpool has such a different feel from Manchester, I really love shooting weddings and engagement shoots there. It’s architecture is not dissimilar from my hometown of Glasgow, so it does remind me of home, and there’s reminders everywhere at the wealth the city enjoyed at the peak of the industrial revolution. The regeneration of the docks has turned this area in to a great multipurpose location that provides all sorts of interesting and unique backdrops for wedding photography and engagement shoots, with Albert Dock being one of the most popular locations that my couples choose for their engagement shoot.

There are so many locations within this area that can feature in photos, from the ‘love locks’ by the Mersey, the future of which is under review at the moment (Liverpool Echo) to the various historical remnants throughout the area.

For couples based over on the Wirral, there’s West Kirby beach, and the beach and wave breakers near Leasowe Castle.

I’ve shot loads of weddings at the fabulous Beatles themed Hard Day’s Night Hotel, and have also photographed weddings at a number of other wedding venue in Liverpool & Wirral areas including The Palm House, Knowsley Hall, and Leasowe Castle. I shot a wedding in Leasowe Castle where I had an opportunity for some dramatic low light wedding photos in the Pagoda at the front of the venue. I’ve featured this wedding, and a few of my other favourites below.

There are so many venues in Liverpool that I’ve not worked at yet but would LOVE to shoot a wedding at including St Georges Hall, The Racquet Club, The Richmond, and Isla Gladstone. In 2015, I’ll be shooting at some new locations in Merseyside including the Holiday Inn in Ellesmere Port and the concert room in St Georges Hall

Liverpool Wedding Photographer – Engagement Shoots portfolio:

I mentioned above that Albert Dock is a popular location for engagement shoots. I’ve worked here with loads of couples at all different times of year, and one of the advantages is that if the weather does turn, there’s not one, but two costa coffee shops, amongst a plethora of other places to grab a coffee. The 2nd most popular location for engagement shoots is Sefton Park, which looks great at any time of year, but my favourite time to shoot in Sefton Park is in the autumn.

Rustic Royal Liver Building Wedding

I’ve photographed many weddings in Liverpool over the last decade, and this location has featured as a backdrop many times in my portfolio, but I’ve never had the opportunity to shoot at one of Liverpool’s most iconic buildings; the infamous Royal Liver Building. We got these portraits just before sunset. The location on Liverpool’s riverside makes…
