I photographed my first wedding at the Hard Day’s Night Hotel back in 2008, and have shot so many (40+) gorgeous weddings since then and at all different times of year. This is my Hard Days Night Hotel Wedding Photography gallery page, a hub where you can find my favourite photos from weddings at this venue, as well as links to featured weddings at this venue & some hints and tips about wedding photography too.
3 Tips for your Hard Day’s Night hotel wedding photography
If you have booked either the John Lennon Suite or McCartney suites, there can be some great sunset opportunities from the adjoining balconies. Make a note of the time of sunset on your wedding day and chat about this with your photographer in advance.
With the Hard Day’s Night being a city centre hotel, there’s no green space, however, St Nicks church gardens is a 2 minute taxi ride and there’s a taxi rank outside the hotel, so if you’d like some greenery and the iconic Liver building as a back drop, portraits here are an option, and I’ve done this a few times; easily there and back in under 15 minutes.
Liverpool city centre can be very busy on a Saturday and as a result, some couples I’ve met have initially felt this venue is more of an indoor venue. I’d encourage couples getting married here to really use the surrounding space. Alley ways a mere 1 minute walk away can be a great backdrop for photos of the groom & groomsmen, the pillars at the front of the hotel make a stunning backdrop for bridal party group photos, and I have shot group photos of the entire wedding party of 55 people in iconic Matthew street.
This portfolio shows some of my favourite portraits that I’ve shot at the Hard Days Night Hotel over the last few years. The photos showing the Liver building in the background were taken in St Nicks church gardens which is only a 3 minute taxi ride.
