I remember the first time I visited The Rum Warehouse, walking out onto the dock overlooking the Tobacco Warehouse I was shocked by the scale and history of the site. You can’t help but pause to take in the views when visiting the site and this is something that doesn't grow old. Having shot many weddings at the venue, I still love to return and take in the amazing surroundings.
The scale and high standards continue on the inside of the building as every area of the hotel is tastefully decorated and beautifully lit. The new section of the hotel which has been built during the renovation seems to seamlessly blend with the historic section. The transition between the two sections of the building is perfect.
That said, I push a button on a camera for a living so what do I know about architecture and design….
From a photographers point of view, all of the above provides a lovely canvas for photographs. Some venues based in city centres can suffer from a staleness when it comes to locations for images. For instance, if the weather isn't good some venues may be limited to one or two locations. Some venues have no onsite areas for photographs so couples are forced to travel to alternative locations for additional photographs. The Titanic Hotel however has many spots on site, both indoors and outdoors, leaving no concerns for photographs.
There is also on site parking available, which is rare for city centres venues. This is great for guests but also makes life a lot easier for your suppliers! Not to mention there are many rooms available for guests to stay the evening, with some of the suites on offer providing stunning views and luxurious amenities even for the native Scouser's who may just want a night away from the kids!
Overall, the venue for me offers scale, history, practicality and a level of professionalism that makes it a must for consideration if your in the market for a city centre wedding venue!
