African colours meet Palm House tropical vibe – A wedding full of life, sun and colour.

Take one sunny Saturday in Liverpool, add in a dash of yellow, a lush tropical backdrop, African traditional outfits and huge smiles – then you’ve got this Sefton Palm House wedding. We love the Palm House, such a stunning venue and these two really made it sing and come alive with all that’s great about weddings.

Those yellow bow ties…

It all sounds great in theory and when else do you get to wear a bow-tie…but there’s the small issue of tying the perfect knot. Then when there’s eight bow ties to tame into shape – well that’s your groom prep pretty much done! All we can say is just make sure one of your groomsmen is a bow tying type of chap! But they did look amazing against the blue suits and all in all the boys scrubbed up pretty good :) Mean while at the other end of the Hope Street area of Liverpool the girls had their own huge airbnb rental for the kids to run around and all the wedding preening to take place. Lots of nooks and crannies and gorgeous light to play with in the photos.

Guests arrived from far and wide, some just down the road, others from their friends at home in London and then those far flung guests too – but all were super impressed with the lush tropical vibe of the palm house. And the sunshine too :) From the brides side the Nigerian traditional costumes really did look stunning in the Liverpudlian sunshine. Makes you wish that we had more colour in our everyday life. After as short delay, the ceremony began in style with amazing entrances from all of the bridal party followed by singing from everyone of one of their favourite songs.

Party, with colour and notes of the green variety

With the day running almost to time but with a touch of the African timings, it was an English first dance quickly followed by a change of outfits in to the Naija dress…then the long awaited money dance. Dance floor full of family, friends, smiles, laughter and groovy dance moves – a fantastic party befitting of the stunning surroundings.

This was a Sefton Park Palm House wedding at it’s most colourful and vibrant best :)

If you’re looking for a photographic building with a historic architectural statement, plenty of green and a great space to party then the Palm House in Liverpool might just be the place for you. Sat in Sefton Park, the Palm House was saved from demise and deterioration a few years ago thanks to some passionate volunteers and plenty of £10 notes to sponsor the 3712 glass panes. Now the palm house is back to it’s former Victorian glory and definitely a statement destination for your wedding ‘I do’s’.

With a Palm House wedding your day begins in the afternoon, you can just squeeze in a ceremony meal and awesome party. Or why not have your ceremony earlier and ahead over to the Palm House for your reception and party. However you plan your day you can guarantee that the glasshouse will be the perfect setting, no matter what the weather it’s such an amazing space. We just love all the palms, orchids, weird and wonderful plants, even a bird or two that might join you for your day. For summer weddings the surrounding park is perfect for a relaxed wander to capture a few pics of the two of you before the sun goes down.

Into the night with funky lighting, the palm house just gets even better, loads of space to dance the night away and a purpose built stage for your wedding band too. For a city centre wedding this place has all the advantages of a central location, easy to reach and the wow factor alongside that elusive easy parking and green feel that’s so difficult to find in a city centre wedding. (And we personally love just nipping over from Manchester to have a sneaky coffee on Lark Lane)
