Tory and Andy’s big day saw first ever wedding in the city of Liverpool, halfway between the two cathedrals at the fantastic Hope Street Hotel. The weather wasn’t great, but that didn’t matter as everything was contained within the hotel, including both the bride and groom’s preparations. Cue lots of lift journeys and running up and down stairs for me as I spread my time between them both.
The ceremony took place in the mainly glass room on the roof of the building making for nice light and fantastic views across Liverpool. Tory was slightly delayed after becoming a bit emotional before entering the room, and was then unsurprisingly emotional again as she walked down the aisle. There were more tears as her brother succumbed during his reading, but eventually we made it through the ceremony. Then everyone headed downstairs to the basement for the reception, before returning to the roof for the wedding breakfast.
More emotions were on show during the speeches, and more of Andy on show than anybody needed to see on a mug that was doing the rounds! Then it was back in the lift to the basement for the cake-cutting and the dancing.
