Saint Francis Xavier Liverpool Wedding Photography (+Hard Day’s Night Hotel)
I had really been looking forward to Hayley & Davids Saint Francis Xavier Liverpool wedding photography as it was my first time shooting at the amazing church in Liverpool so their wedding really couldn’t come quick enough!
Hayley had asked for some pictures of her and David in front of the red doors at SFX, so I made sure to include a variety of portraits which included the door.
But I’m skipping ahead a bit… so back to the start: I met Hayley at home first. I arrived at 11am, and she had completely forgotten I was shooting preparation pics so was omewhat surprised to see me! I joined all the girls in the kitchen where the hair and make-up action was happening and was made the most amazing strong black coffee. I’d had an espresso before I left home, but that had been a good 90 minutes or so ago, so another was definitely due! 😉
I got loads of candid shots of preparations and the girls, and then it was time to head to SFX for pictures of the groom and the guys. The weather was dry but it was blowing a gale so those shots were somewhat windswept, we got them done fairly quick before heading in to the warmth of the Church.
Hayley soon arrived with her Dad – in plenty of time for a few quick shots next to the wedding car – and I then found a corner to unobtrusively hide in to shoot the ceremony.
After a few group pictures & some portraits of the couple, we all made our way to the Hard Day’s Night Hotel, the location of the wedding reception. When the couple arrived, they relaxed with guests and enjoyed a selection of canapes and drinks, and once they’d had a chance to catch up with their guests we headed to the John Lennon suite for some pictures of the bridal party.
I left the couple partying the night away and headed up to one of the hotel rooms. I had a wedding at the hotel the following day so was staying over. The Hard Day’s Night is a gorgeous boutique hotel, so after shooting so many gorgeous weddings there, it was lovely to finally stay there. I sent the couple the link on their return from honeymoon and this is the reply:
