I honestly don’t know where to start with this amazing couple. Not only did they pick possibly one of the coolest wedding venues in Liverpool (the Hard Days Night Hotel), have amazing live music planned throughout their wedding (and why not, Liverpool is the Capital of Music) but they are just an awesome couple and I reckon after reading this and watching their film you’ll soon agree. I met Lydia what must be going on two years ago at a Hard Days Night wedding fair and I was so excited when she emailed to confirm she’d love to book!

I started filming the day in Lydia’s hotel suite at the Hard Days Night and although it was still classed as early the Paradox inspired playlist was blasting out of the iPod and the champagne had been popped. I knew from this moment I would have a blast with these girls, I just loved their style!

Anthony enjoyed being spoilt by his Mum and spent the morning with the parents and his Best Man in Crosby. With the Liverpool match kicking off before the ceremony everyone was keen to get in to town…

As always the morning flew by in a blur of hairspray and eye shadow dust and before we knew it we were all gathering round to get Lydia in that amazing tea length wedding dress! She not only wowed us but we got a ‘wow’ from Dad too and it really added to the buzz in the room…

As I don’t get to see this moment myself it really is one of the highlights when it comes to editing…the groom awaiting his bride! This part of the day really does go by in the blink of an eye and there’s so much pressure on us to get that shot. It is possibly one of my favourite parts of the day and even I well up a little when I get to watch that moment back, it really is amazing to be able to relive that moment over and over…

Keyhole Studios Photography were quick to get all the guests on the front stairs at the Hard Days Night for the big group shot. It’s always fun to watch that! We then headed inside for some couple shots and for the guests to enjoy the amazing bar downstairs before everyone was ushered in to the wedding breakfast room for a slap up meal and some very entertaining speeches (I don’t think many grooms would get away with his opening ‘thank you’ to the father of the bride…). Miss Daisy set the mood playing live during the wedding breakfast even after singing Lydia down the aisle!

Everyone was then treated to even more live music when RagTag Misfits took to the stage and encouraged the guests to joy in with a guitar case full of fun percussion instruments! The evening really did start with a bang and the music was amazing. It took a lot for me to stop jumping around with the bridesmaids and pack my gear up to go home. Now that was a wedding I would’ve paid to be a guest at…

And I thought I’d end on a very lovely message that Lydia posted on Facebook…
