When choosing a wedding venue in Liverpool, it’s important to consider its location, its surroundings and its view! When you look back on your wedding photos, you want to remember the grandeur of the Royal Liver Building and not the graffiti wall down some back alley…here are our 10 favourite buildings to feature in photos…
10. Liverpool Cathedral
The Cathedral in Liverpool’s city centre is the fifth largest in the world! It also has the widest and tallest gothic arches than anywhere else in the world! It really is quite an interesting building.
9. Speke Hall and Gardens
This beautiful Tudor mansion is just on the outskirts of the city and parts of it date back to the 1500s! It’s a beautiful building and ideal if you’re getting married further out of Liverpool by the airport.
8. Municipal Buildings
The Municipal Buildings are Grade II listed, originally constructed to accommodate the city’s administrative and council staff. It’s now a four star hotel. It’s very characterful and a great photo feature!
7. Bluecoat Chambers
This is the oldest building left standing in central Liverpool! It opened in 1717 as a charity school and is now an arts centre. It’s recently celebrated its 300th anniversary! It’s a really cool feature for your wedding.
6. Port of Liverpool Building
This Edwardian-Baroque building is also Grade II listed and has been standing since 1907. It has quite an interesting history and is reminiscent of the Palace of Versailles. It’s a really pretty background!
5. Liverpool Town Hall
This is one of the finest surviving 18th century town halls in the UK according to National Heritage. It was built in 1754 and certainly impresses with its Georgian feel to it. You can even get married here!
4. St George’s Hall
This Neoclassical building consists of concert halls and law courts nowadays and has been standing strong since the mid-1800s. A multitude of events are hosted here and the interiors are incredible.
3. Cunard Building
This was the headquarters of the Cunard cruise line until the 1960s! The company moved to Southampton to continue their Anglo-American cruises but the building remains as does the name of its previous tenants.
2. Victoria Building
This three-storey terracotta brick building was originally constructed for the University of Liverpool, but it now houses the Victoria Gallery and Museum. It’s a really unique feature in a city of Georgian white walls.
1. Royal Liver Building
And finally, we have the incredible Royal Liver Building. This is Grade I listed and an enormous building, dominating the city’s waterfront skyline. It was Britain’s first major construction and two Liver birds sit perch upon the two clock towers! Luckily, there are venues surrounding it with views of it on balconies.
