30 James Street Wedding Photography
Situated in the heart of Liverpool city centre with views across Pier Head and the docklands, 30 James Street is a chic and elegant wedding venue. The building itself is Grade II listed and has historic links with the famed Titanic. Constructed in the late 1800s the hotel exudes old world glamour. Wedding photographers can take advantage of the hotel’s stunning architecture as well as the city beyond. City centre venues are so exciting from a photographic point of view. Photographers delight in the chance capture urban images as well as more classic wedding photos.
First impressions at 30 James Street signify what’s in store at the venue. Upon arrival guests are met with the iconic facade, white Portland stone and rich red brick. A picture of the couple outside of James Street is a must. After years of neglect the building was bought by the Kenwrights. Their mission was to restore the venue to it’s former glory. Now 30 James Street is a luxurious 64 bedroom hotel hosting the most fabulous weddings in Liverpool. Some additions have been made during this process; the relaxing Morgan’s Spa and a rooftop champagne bar all in keeping with the chic Titanic theme.
The White Star Grand Hall
The jewel of 30 James Street has to be The White Star Grand Hall. Available for ceremonies as well as the reception, this versatile space looks incredible in photos. The room was historically a first class lounge and ticketing area for the White Star Shipping Company.
Having served many VIP’s over the years the space has now been restored to it’s former glamour. The fixtures and fittings are bright, luxurious and oozing opulence. Ceremony photos are a breeze at 30 James Street as the room is light and airy. Low light can be a challenge for wedding photographers as detail can be lost in the pictures. In the White Star Grand Hall there is no need for artificial lighting set ups which can detract away from the moment.
