Tell us a little about your venue…
In the heart of Liverpool’s thriving city centre, DoubleTree by Hilton, Hotel & Spa, Liverpool, offers a fairy-tale venue with lavish architecture typical of the 19th century. The luxurious furnishings and fittings of our rooms perfectly complement the grandeur and opulence of the building’s stunning exterior – you’ll even have your own private entrance to this historical hotel in the form of the lavishly restored Corinthian Grand, with its huge marble pillars that tower over breathtaking mosaic floors.
What makes your venue unique?
Each of our wedding suites is full of character with beautifully restored stained glass windows and ornately decorated ceilings. What’s more, our iconic world heritage staircase leads from the entrance to the upper floors, and provides one of the building’s most outstanding features. It also offers the perfect photo opportunity for you, the happy couple, to treasure forever.
What’s your favourite part of the wedding day?
I love the whole of a wedding day as each part is different but just as special. I do particularly love the ceremony, watching the whole room turn for the bride walking give me shivers every time. When you have known a couple for sometimes 1-2 years and helped plan their day alongside them, it is a wonderful feeling to see them walk down the aisle and know it has all come together perfectly.
What one piece of advice would you give to brides and grooms when choosing their venue?
The venue plays such a huge role in shaping the ambiance for your wedding, so it’s important to have a vision of what you want to portray for you big day. I think the venue becomes the third character in the narrative of your wedding story. The best advice I can give is to choose a place that has a warm and inviting atmosphere, a bit like it feels when coming home.Choose a venue that has a warm and inviting atmosphere #theliverpoolweddingblog Click To Tweet
What’s the most extravagant/unusual request you’ve had for a wedding?
One couple wanted to bring their dogs, but unfortunately we don’t allow pets in the hotel so we could not agree.
What type of wedding is your venue ideal for?
All weddings are ideal for our venue, we cater to all needs and are very flexible with packages.
Have you ever had any celebrity wedding?
We haven’t yet, no.
What wedding trends have been your favourite?
One of my favourites and most popular is having singing waiters as it really lifts the room and creates a great atmosphere during the wedding breakfast.
What’s your favourite thing about Liverpool?
My favourite things about Liverpool are the people, everyone is so lively and positive. I have worked in hospitality for a year in different cities and the hospitality in Liverpool has such a buzz about it and is just a great city to work in.
