Photographing Andrew and Anna’s boho wedding at the Oh Me Oh My in Liverpool was a fun day filled with love and friendship. The weather was definitely against us in Liverpool, but everyone was in great spirits and moved around the different venues whilst managing to stay dry. Hopefully you can see in the wedding photographs the rustic and boho theme that the Anna and Andrew created for their special day. It’s honestly great to see couples who are happy to break away from standard wedding traditions, because at the end of the day, the wedding day is their celebration!
Getting ready for the wedding ceremony
Both the bride and groom were getting ready in a local Liverpool hotel which meant that it was straightforward to create photographs of both of them. Bride Anna had a relaxed start to the wedding day whilst she was getting ready with her bridesmaid and her daughter Amelie. The light in the hotel room had great contrast and direction which helped to create some dramatic photographs of the bridal prep environment. Once everyone was ready, it was time for us to head over to the wedding ceremony in a silver Liverpool wedding taxi.
Wedding ceremony at St George’s Hall
The wedding ceremony itself was at St George’s Hall in Liverpool, which is a huge and classic space and will compliment most weddings. One of the traditions that Anna and Andrew decided to change was how they walked down the aisle. Traditionally the bride walks down the aisle with whoever is “giving the bride away”, but the they would both enter the ceremony room and walk down the aisle together. The ceremony was a beautiful time of the day with a few tears, a few laughs, and lots of smiles.
After the ceremony, we all stayed for a few drinks at the bar which gave everyone chance to catch up with friends and say congratulations to the bride and groom.
Oh Me Oh My Wedding Reception
The wedding breakfast and reception was held at the Oh Me Oh My in Liverpool, and I want to say that I just love the character of the space. The look and feel of Oh Me Oh My complimented Andrew and Anna’s boho wedding theme and provided a great space for the guests to move around. Some venues have “pockets” of space and I notice that guests split into groups which dilutes the overall atmosphere of the wedding day. This didn’t happen at the Oh Me Oh My wedding, and therefore it’s definitely a Liverpool wedding venue that I would recommend to couples planning their special day.
The speeches took place before the high-tea style wedding breakfast, and we were treated to multiple best man speeches as Andrew had chosen so many! The afternoon or high tea wedding breakfast was a great idea, and perhaps encouraged guests to have a brew and not just drink booze 😊 Later on in the evening it took a few minutes for staff to create a little more space for dancing, and once the band was setup, it was time for the bride and groom’s first dance.
