Radisson Blu Liverpool Wedding – Gemma & Joseph
Gemma & Joseph’s wedding at Radisson Blu Liverpool was my final scheduled wedding for 2014, and it proved to be a fitting finale for what has been a year full of variety, challenges and much fun and enjoyment.
I arrived at Gemma’s mum’s house to cover the bridal preparations to find Gemma in a happy, relaxed frame of mind. After taking detail shots of the wedding dress, (red) shoes, and bouquets I made my way downstairs to take some informal photos of the bride and her party having their hair and make-up done. This is a relaxing part of the day for me as a photographer, and provides a valuable opportunity to build rapport with the bride and bridesmaids before the ceremony.
There had been patchy rain throughout the morning, but as I arrived at St Anne & Blessed Dominic Church in St Helens all was well on the weather front. There was time to take a few shots of Joseph & party before the bridesmaids arrived, quickly followed by Gemma, looking radiant and remarkably calm.
The minister caused much mirth when seemingly announcing that Gemma was about to marry her brother Stephen, but fortunately this case of mistaken identity was swiftly rectified, and the ceremony proceeded without further incident.
We made our way to the Radisson Blu Liverpool on Old Hall Street, and immediately set up some great shots using a neighbouring cottage as a nice backdrop for some posed portraits. Into the hotel for some more bride & groom shots making the most of the interior architecture before moving on to a series of formal group photographs in the hotel lobby, resplendent with white piano and chandelier.
The music in the early evening was generally commercial pop in style, so I was pleasantly surprised/shocked when the first dance got under way to the more indie sounds of The Cure, quickly followed by The Smiths!
