A Festive Hope Street Hotel Wedding

Step into the enchanting world of Rebecca and Paul’s winter wonderland wedding at the iconic Hope Street Hotel in Liverpool.

As a Liverpool-based wedding photographer, I had the honour of capturing the magic of their special day – a twilight celebration adorned with the charm of Christmas decorations and the timeless allure of heritage architecture nestled between two majestic cathedrals.

Hope Street Hotel holds a special place in my heart as a favourite wedding venue in Liverpool, and this winter affair was nothing short of exciting. During the wedding, the festivities spilt over to the iconic Liverpool Philharmonic, where we seized the moment for some impromptu creative photos.

Picture this – the newlyweds framed against the famous backdrop of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, as I skillfully captured their love from the rooftop of the Hope Street Hotel.

The result? A collection of breathtaking photographs that perfectly encapsulate the myriad emotions – love, laughter, tears, and joy – that painted the canvas of this incredible twilight wedding in Liverpool.

Join me in unveiling the captivating story of Rebecca and Paul, a tale of romance and celebration that will undoubtedly inspire your journey into the world of weddings and the art of preserving those cherished moments.

Winter wedding at Hope Street Hotel

Hi, we are Rebecca and Paul Jones. And this is our Hope Street Hotel wedding photography story.

Rebecca was never a gym bunny but decided to hire a personal trainer. Six and a bit years later, Rebecca doesn’t have a personal trainer but does have a husband.

The proposal took place in Dubai as the sun went down on our hotel balcony. The father of the groom had spoiled the element of surprise a few weeks earlier, but it was still really special!

We returned home and soon started planning our Hope Street Hotel wedding at Christmas.

A twilight wedding at Hope Street Hotel

We wanted a small intimate winter wedding with only the people who meant the most to us there. Once we had decided on a Hope Street Hotel wedding in Liverpool, a twilight wedding seemed perfect.

Having our Hope Street Hotel wedding at Christmas time meant we could incorporate seasonal touches and colours to make it more special and unique. A twilight wedding seemed like the perfect compliment to a festive celebration.

Our idea was to have a classy candle-lit Hope Street Hotel wedding. We wanted to incorporate the colours and tones of the Christmas season in the decoration. A twilight wedding gave birth to the vibe of the wedding with candles and warm tones.

With this in mind, we added some Christmassy touches such as homemade baubles as wedding favours and prioritised a burgundy and gold colour scheme.

Rebecca’s dress was a beautiful Martina Liana Essence dress from Natalie Ann Brides in Liverpool. Paul’s suit – Charles Tyrwhitt navy 3-piece suit with a burgundy bowtie.

The hotel’s reputation area and the stunning views across the city of Liverpool from the rooftop terrace played a big part in choosing to have a twilight Hope Street Hotel wedding ceremony.

Additionally, the venue was able to cater perfectly to our small and intermit wedding party size. We had 34 guests, one bridesmaid and one best man.

As a bride, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is deciding on your wedding venue. But all brides have different ideas of what they deem to be perfect.

That’s why I was so excited to discover Hope Street Hotel Liverpool, as this beautiful and unique space provides something special for each type of bride.

With its stunning location between two cathedrals, remarkable history, and warm hospitality throughout – Hope Street Hotel Liverpool truly offers an unforgettable experience.

Wedding photography at Liverpool Philharmonic

A standout moment from our wedding was standing in front of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic with our photographer Wes taking photos from the Hope Street hotel rooftop.

We had to explain to the exiting Philharmonic guests that we were indeed a bride and groom and not part of the show. It thankfully did provide some excellent and very memorable photographs!

Paul’s wedding highlight was seeing his future wife in her dress for the first time walking down the aisle. Rebecca’s highlight was being introduced as Mr and Mrs Jones for the first time.

Hope Street Hotel wedding photographer recommendation

As a bride-to-be, there is nothing more exciting than planning the wedding of your dreams. Each task can bring a jolt of joy and anticipation.

However, one detail that many brides overlook in all of their excitement is selecting a quality wedding photographer to capture their special day.

In planning for our Hope Street Hotel wedding, we researched local photographers in the Liverpool area before Wes Simpson was recommended to us.

Wes had photographed a family friend’s wedding Jenna & Micheal at 30 James Street, another popular Liverpool wedding venue.

He came highly recommended, and we loved his style and approach to wedding photography on his website. We felt that his signature images offered something truly unique.

If you get married at the Hope Street Hotel in Liverpool, you can be certain that you will have the opportunity to take some extraordinary photographs on your wedding day.

If you choose to have your day documented by a talented photographer like Wes Simpson, who has years of experience shooting events like weddings, you will have an unforgettable experience.

We would highly recommend Wes Simpson as your Hope Street Hotel wedding photographer.

Thanks again,

Rebecca and Paul
