Real Wedding, Siren Liverpool – Natalie and Phil
So, who’s ready for another real wedding feature??!!
We love a good proposal story here at The Liverpool Wedding Blog, and this real wedding starts with just that…
Natalie and Phil met like a lot of people do, while at work. And after several years the pair finally got together. When it came time to pop the question I think it’s safe to say that Phil nailed the proposal on the head…
Natalie tell us, “Phil planned a trip to Paris and proposed there…under the Eiffel Tower, when it was all lit up at night. It was perfect and the most beautiful and happy trip”. Romantic or what?!
They enjoyed being engaged for about a year before spending ten months planning the day, and like most people the first thing they booked was their venue – The gorgeous Siren and St Peters church.
Siren is a fabulous city centre venue which Natalie and Phil chose because it was light and relaxed, with a gorgeous roof top terrace overlooking both the city and river.
It was the perfect venue for their small, laid back wedding which complimented their theme brilliantly
“Our theme was a bit of yellow and floral. But nothing too rigid. We just went with what we could find and what looked pretty”.
Natalie’s dress was a gorgeous fitted lacey number from Bride2Be, which looked great with her flowers from McCombe Flowers, Liverpool.
“[The flowers] were absolutely beautiful, agapanthis, yellow roses, baby’s breath and others I couldn’t name! The florist completely understood what I liked and made them so perfectly.”
“Our photographer was Lucy Hannah Photography. We chose her as we liked her informal style of photography and were looking for someone who wouldn’t make us pose for hours on the day! Lucy’s photos were absolutely beautiful, she captured the most intimate and happy moments and I still can’t look at them without smiling or crying! They look stunning. We were really lucky to have found Lucy!”
Their DJ was extremely entertaining, he had everyone dancing all night and made the cake cutting into a huge event having the guests welcome in the bride and groom through a tunnel of arms!
Every wedding day is special but Natalie and Phil had an extra special ending to their evening…
“The night of our wedding was the Perseid Meteor Shower, some of our guest saw the meteors from the balcony at Siren but we were too busy dancing so missed them. When we got to our hotel, the Hope Street Hotel, they had upgraded us to a room with a balcony and we saw meteors from there!” How FAB!
