Bristol Wedding Photographer in Liverpool. Neil and Kat

February 8th, 2011

I love a good blog­ging ses­sion and it’s nice to get back and share some work with you!
I’m so behind with my blog­ging, I do apologise.

Neil and Kat got mar­ried up in Liv­er­pool back near the end of last year, there were still leaves on the trees, bright gold­en they were.
I had nev­er vis­it­ed Liv­er­pool before so for me it was quite excit­ing. Every­where you turn has some ref­er­ence to the fab four, (no, not the Back­street Boys).
Neil and Kat held their recep­tion at the incred­i­ble Sefton Park Palm House, a con­ser­va­to­ry palm house built in 1896. It was beau­ti­ful inside and out, with a huge vari­a­tion of exot­ic plants.
At a few times through­out the day I looked out of the window…the whole build­ing is basi­cal­ly a big win­dow to be honest…and noticed 3 or 4 wed­ding cars dri­ve up to the front gate, brides were get­ting out of the cars to have their pic­ture tak­en with the house in the back­ground. I felt quite lucky to be inside a build­ing that obvi­ous­ly was a pop­u­lar land­mark that meant a lot to local people.
Dur­ing the evening recep­tion I was talk­ing to one of the guests, she said that when she was a lit­tle girl she used to come to the palm house on a Sun­day with her par­ents and read the news­pa­per. It was much warmer in the Palm house than what it was at home. Appar­ent­ly, it was quite com­mon for every­body to do this, it saved on heat­ing costs!
Now the Palm house has been beau­ti­ful­ly restored and it’s a plea­sure to be inside.

Neil and Kat did­n’t have the best day weath­er-wise, It was a typ­i­cal­ly chilly north­ern late-Autumn day with lots of show­ers. Per­son­al­ly, I can’t stand the rain, but I do like how rain makes peo­ple hud­dle clos­er togeth­er to try and stay warm and dry under one umbrel­la. It makes for great pic­tures. That pan­ic that hits peo­ple when the heav­ens first opens is quite a fun­ny site to record through pho­tographs. Cal­i­for­ni­ans might have a steady sup­ply of gold­en and lush light, but we’ve got the rain and atmosphere!
I’ll keep on telling myself that’s how I like it.

Reg­u­lar read­ers might recog­nise Neil here, he’s appeared on the blog before along with anoth­er cou­ple which I’m very sure you’ll recognise.

Enjoy the pic­tures and please leave a com­ment at the bot­tom of the page!
