We have such an incredibly varied array of wedding venues here in Liverpool but Sefton Park Palm House has to be one of the prettiest. This Grade 2 listed Victorian glass house is known as the jewel of Sefton Park and has been wowing visitors since it opened in 1896.

It was designed to showcase a collection of tropical plants from South East Asia, Australasia, the Americas, Africa, Europe and the Mediterranean. Incredibly, some of the original specimens are still there today!

Weddings at the Palm House are a feast for the senses, with a myriad of colour, scents and textures. It is full to the brim of palms, Hibiscus and Bouganvillea, amongst other things. There’s also no need to worry about the weather as the inside is bathed in natural light all year round. It really is a wedding photographer’s dream venue!

A very brief history of Sefton Park Palm House

Sefton Park Palm House has a colourful history. It opened in 1896 after Henry Yates Thompson donated £10,000 to the people of Liverpool. During WW2 it was damaged when the glass was shattered after the blitz bombing of the city. Major repairs were done in the 1950’s, but as it was so expensive to maintain it slowly fell into a state of disrepair and was closed to the public by the 80’s. Campaigning and fundraising began in the 90’s so it could be restored and it was eventually re-opened in 2001 as an arts and cultural venue.

A beautiful summer wedding at Sefton Park Palm House

Lucy & Dom met in Liverpool, their love story began in university halls no less! Even though they now live in New York, it was Liverpool where they wanted to gather their favourite people together to celebrate their wedding.

The whole day was a big party full of bright colours, sunshine, laughter and booze!

The humanist ceremony was led by the wonderful Hannah Wroe Gill and was personalised to them and made everyone laugh on quite a few occasions (some tears were shed too!)! I don’t know of anywhere else in Liverpool where you can get married enveloped in a mass of Hibiscus plants!

A glorious summer’s evening at the Palm House

Lucy and Dom had incredible weather on their wedding day so we got to spend plenty of time outside in the gardens. After dinner, as the sun was setting and the light was a bit softer, I mingled with the guests as they really started to get into party mode! We also managed a few quick couple portraits before L&D were off to cut the cake and dance the night away!
