When it comes to a Liverpool City Centre wedding venue, 30 James Street always has to be on the list of venues to view. For us at Keyhole Studios it has been one of the most frequently visited venues over the past few years.
There are a lot of venues to choose from in our city centre but few have the location of 30 James Street. It is situated close to the waterfront so it's easy to walk over after the ceremony with your bridal party. There are a large number of lovely rooms available at the hotel for your guests to book, but it is also very close to a number of different hotels ranging in costs and luxuries depending on your guests preferences!
From a photographers point of view the venue has plenty of textures. What I mean by this is some hotels are a little corporate and they can be a little 50 shades of grey with grey walls, dull carpets, wall to ceiling glass with a grey bar and grey doors with grey external cladding and grey receptions. Not 30 James Street though!
Our day would typically start with photographs of the preparation in the morning. The rooms at the hotel are spacious and very well decorated and there are plenty of spots to hang a wedding dress. This may seem like a pretty straightforward request for a hotel hosting a wedding, but there are many hotel rooms which have a limited number of spots to hang a heavy wedding dress!
