Malmaison Liverpool Wedding – Alishea & Craig

Malmaison Liverpool Wedding – Alishea & Craig

Craig & Alishea’s wedding at the stylish boutique hotel Malmaison in Liverpool was a Winter wedding to remember.  The rain during the preceding week had been incessant, but Friday, 4th December turned out to be totally rain-free (if a little windy).  I took advantage of the favourable weather, the view across the Mersey, and the sweeping views of Liverpool by taking photographs of Craig and his best man before the ceremony. There are an abundance of great photographic opportunities within easy distance when covering a Malmaison Liverpool Wedding.

The Malmaison has a chic, gothic style which perfectly complemented Alishea’s look.  The room was luxurious  and elegant with a warm and stylish décor, counter-balanced with plush black and purple. Craig was very nervous before the ceremony, but once he saw Alishea walking down the aisle looking amazing in her wedding dress, the nerves melted away, replaced by emotion and perhaps a tear or two.

Whilst the weather Gods were kind in keeping the rain away, the wind which was brisk in the morning turned to near gale force in the afternoon.  I quickly adjusted my plans and set up the formal group shots in the Malmaison reception area. After a brief interlude, the guests gathered in the wedding suite, eagerly anticipating the speeches.  This is my favourite part of the day as a photographer; the pace slows a little, and I can really immerse myself in the occasion, capturing the laughter, emotion, and guest reactions whilst at the same time listening to the anecdotes and heartfelt words.  I often find myself laughing out loud during the best man’s speech or applauding enthusiastically at the end of a particularly emotional speech.

Both Craig and Alishea took to the microphone, and they did an amazing job of expressing their love for each other.  Family and friends were left in no doubt that this couple were meant for each other and have a special connection.
