Weddings at 30 James St Hotel

30 James St Hotel is one of the finest wedding venues in Liverpool. Once the home of the Titanic’s White Star office, the hotel is a stunning themed wedding venue, perfect for your city centre wedding or event. I love being a 30 James St Hotel Wedding Photographer, and photograph a handful of weddings there every year. My natural documentary style of photography lends itself to my being a 30 James St Hotel Wedding Photographer; I approach your wedding as that extra guest, telling your wedding day story as it happemns. Plus…we get to go round Pier Head and The Docks for some stunning urban wedding photos.

Wedding Video in Liverpool

On board with me for this wedding was Steve & Paul from Capture Your Moments Wedding Films. I’ve worked with these guys before and they come highly recommended. If you are thinking of hiring me to be your 30 James St Hotel Wedding Photographer, then you should possibly consider these guys for video too.

Wedding Photos in LIverpool

Our schedule dictated that we spent a few minutes down at Pier Head, shooting some modern wedding photos. The weather looked promising, so I planned on shooting more images after the wedding breakfast and speeches, when the sun had dropped and things were looking more filmic. So we spent  fifteen or so minutes shooting some natr=ural relaxed wedding images, plus a few more formal shots of Caroline and her stunning dress, then it was back to me being a 30 James St Hotel Wedding Photographer again, capturing the beautifully decorated Ballroom. Paul was back at the hotel filming the guests mingling, so we had a few minutes available between us all.

Speeches at a Liverpool Wedding

As the guests made their way downstairs, we had a few minutes to grab a handful of ‘classic’ looking 30 James St Hotel images in colour and mono. Nobody spotted us on the stairwell, so we quietly got on with things. Steve was with me too, shooting quietly alongside. Job done. Shots in the bag, so we were now on to the wedding breakfast and speeches.

Stunning urban wedding photos

With the speeches over, and everyone nipping off to their rooms to freshen up, we spent around twenty minutes shooting in and around the nearby side streets. The light was gorgeous, almost like New York, so we wasted no time. I suddenly had a flash of an idea I wanted to try; to get the couple featured in a vehicle somehow. Sounded a hell of a lot easier as I explained to Steve my plan. With raised eyebrows I went for it. It took around four minutes and a few wasted shots until a passing black cab duly obliged us. Shot of the day!

30 James Street Wedding

A 30 James Street Wedding is always one to look forward to. 30 James Street Hotel is a fantastic themed hotel in the heart of Liverpool. Once the main office for the White Star Company- the owners of the RMS Titanic, 30 James Street is steeped in tradition…and style. The interior design is stunning, with a brilliant 6th floor ‘Carpathian Champagne Bar‘ complete with balcony overlooking the city. Here’s what the 30 James Street Hotel website says –

“30 James Street is a historic building constructed between 1896 and 1898. The stunning Grade II* listed building is situated on the corner of James Street and The Stand and offers incredible views across Liverpool’s Pier Head, the docklands and the famous Three Graces. The building was built for the Ismay, Imrie and Company shipping company, which later became the White Star Line. This building was the hub of the RMS Titanic and where the ship received its orders. The grand White Star Grand Hall was originally used as the first class lounge and ticketing office for the White Star Shipping company and to this day still offers guests a first class experience. The hall has been fully restored to its former glory with high, opulent ceilings and incredible period features…”

Helen & Alex’s wedding was in December. I love winter weddings and the challenges the weather (and venue) can bring. Luckily the day was bright and dry. Bonus! We were on a tight schedule though, so time spent on bridal preparations was limited. Here’s some highlights from Helen & Alex’s stunning 30 James Street Wedding…

City Centre Wedding

I love a city centre wedding, be it in Manchester, Chester or York. My job takes me around the UK, working at some fantastic venues, but I am especially partial to a good urban wedding 😉 And I love 30 James Street Hotel as a city centre wedding venue. Just a stone’s throw across the main road, we have Pier Head, with lots of scope for couple photos. I tend to be a 30 James Street Wedding Photographer a few times each year, and each visit always fills me with inspiration.

Wedding Photos in Liverpool

From the ceremony, we were off for twenty minutes or so. Being December, it wasn’t exactly warm, so we had to move quickly! A quick stroll across the main road and we were outside the Royal Liver Building. Travelling light with 24-70mm, 35mm  and 85mm lenses, we got the couples photos ‘in the bag’ before our lovely bride Helen turned blue… 😉

Laura & James were married at ‘The Titanic Hotel’ in Liverpool recently. Based opposite The Pier Head, 30 James Street Hotel was the original White Star office for the Titanic – here’s a quote from the hotel’s website:

” The Grade II* listed building was built for the Ismay, Imrie and Company shipping company, which later became known as the White Star Line. Following the death of founder Thomas Ismay, his son, J Bruce Ismay, became chairman and managing director of the company, and created some of White Star Line’s most famous ships, including RMS Titanic, whose port of registry was the White Star Line headquarters, which now serves as 30 James Street, a Titanic-themed hotel.”

liverpool_wedding_photographer_01

The Titanic, it’s history and subsequent discovery are one of my guilty pleasures – I have a few books on the subject, here at MCP HQ – so it was a ‘no-brainer’ to accept the invitation to photograph Laura & James’ wedding day at such an iconic building. I love working in Liverpool too – the sheer scale of some of the buildings in and around Pier Head…plus THAT wonderful Town Hall. So, here is my maiden voyage as a 30 James Street Hotel Wedding Photographer.

liverpool_wedding_photographer_02liverpool_wedding_photographer_03liverpool_wedding_photographer_04

I caught up with Laura and the girls at 30 James Street as the rain was falling, and the weather looking ominously dreadful for the day – but anybody who is / has been in a band uses the saying ‘Bad sound check, great gig’. I use this as my philosophy too. Yep, I did five years in bands to earn that right 😉 I am alwyas optimistic that the wetaher will break, even if only time to shoot a few bride and groom portraits and family group shots. Today was no exception, and through the rain spattered windows, I assured the girls that ‘the gig would be good’…gulp.

And, as if by magic, the rain disappeared and the sun came out, an hour before the ceremony over at St Sebastian’s in Kensington.

You’ll notice Stuart peeping into shot top left, quietly doing his thing too; a great videographer to work alongside, and one as geeky as me when it comes to talking cameras, technical and all things post production. Brilliant to work with and great company too!

From church, we were off to The Pier Head for a few Bride & Groom portraits. I travelled with Laura & James to save time and be more ‘live’ with the photography…even down to capturing their wedding day ‘selfie’ which appeared on Facebook later that day…and no, they didn’t spot me taking it.

With a two pronged ‘attack’ by James’ Best Men, which was hilarious…and pretty embarrasing for poor James at times, the wedding breakfast and speeches were duly finished.

We grabbed a couple of images before the evening celebrations began, and Laiura & james hit the dnace floor. Now…we were in Liverpool, with a Liverpool couple, at a wedding venue in the heart of Liverpool’s Pier Head. Their first dance song was an Oasis track…a brilliant choice too…but all bets were now off 😉

Iconic Liverpool Wedding Venue

Kelly & Kevin booked me to produce their 30 James Street Wedding Photography over the internet. Theirs was a classic wedding where I met my clients on the day, armed with my schedule and the Nikons. 30 James Street was originally the White Star Line HQ Building, Albion House – the main office for the Titanic, where passengers could purchase their tickets for the (doomed) maiden voyage. Recently refurbished, 30 James Street is now a stunning, and very sought-after exclusive wedding venue in Liverpool.
