Josh & Anna
20 Aug 2022
When I hear a couple say "it's not going to be a very traditional wedding" I know I'm in for a treat, there's nothing like new takes on old ideas and novel interpretations to mix things up! Josh and Anna's big day was certainly no exception to this.
We met outside the Titanic Hotel where Josh had got ready so that we could do the first reveal - the bride and groom seeing each other all dressed up. It's a very touching moment, especially if you don't want the traditional walking down the aisle. It also means we can do some of the bride and grooms shots then, leaving more time in the day to be with the guests.
Working with my second photographer Rachael Francesca meant we were able to cover a lot of angles quickly, whilst also having an extra pair eyes to make sure everything looked as good as possible.
The portrait session was fun and laid back. We had scouted some locations earlier and so enjoyed wondering Liverpool's North Docks to get some very cool shots. We finished a little early due to the wind really picking up, very suitable given the venue we were heading to: Invisible Wind Factory
If you don't know the Invisible Wind Factory, it is a big old former wind turbine factory that hosts gigs, events, workshop and space as well as a roller disco! Certainly an incredible place to begin with but throw in the creative talents of Josh and Anna and well, I think the photos speak for themselves.
The ceremony was fun and uplifting, led by two very outgoing performer friends complete with readings and emotional vows. The ceremony was sealed not just with a kiss but with hand prints on a giant canvas!
The afternoon sun stretched out as everyone enjoyed drinks in the garden before dinner and speeches in the main hall. There was also, of course, an interactive quiz complete with music and choreography!
Then of course it was time to party. Not only did we get the amazing band Night Riders to get things going, but, after a quick costume change from the Bride and Groom to even more sequins, we then get treated to a huge first dance with pyrotechnics, the lot. The DJ Ben Singleton carried the energy on through the whole night with house classics, and a glitter/face make up station was opened, and more glo-sticks passed around then you could shake a, well glo-stick at.
