Lauren & Alex’s Victoria Gallery & Museum wedding in Liverpool last September was an absolute belter!
After getting to know these two when they invited me to their home in Switzerland last summer to do their pre-wedding shoot, I knew it was going to be a great day! I also knew the focus of the day was going to be on having a BOSS time and celebrating with all their favourite people until the early hours! Needless to say, they didn’t disappoint!
These two decided to do things their way; they spent time together before the ceremony, they did a “first look” (which was adorable! ) and they walked down the “aisle” together! I’ll let Lauren explain a bit more about their big day;
“Our wedding planning was a little different to most as we currently live abroad. We knew that we wanted to get married in Liverpool as that’s where I’m from and where Alex lived for ten years before we left, but it did make arranging things from 2000 miles away a little more stressful – thank goodness for email!
We wanted our wedding to be super fun and easy for us (and for our guests) so the location and set up of the venue was really important. We didn’t have the time (or the luggage allowance!) to bring back and set up lots of decorations etc, but of course still wanted the day to look beautiful and feel special. The Victoria Gallery and Museum, tucked away in the city centre university campus, ticked all of our boxes. The whole day including ceremony was hosted there across three separate rooms, all of which were gorgeous, and needed minimal decoration from us. Who doesn’t want their reception drinks under a dolphin skeleton, right?!
The museum also provided a wedding planner and a day coordinator (who were both fantastic), which really made our lives easier given that we were so far away.
Along with the VGM, all of our suppliers were absolutely great – we were really lucky to find people that ‘got’ what we wanted immediately and were really fun and easy to work with. It was great to be able to trust that everything was in hand without feeling like I needed to micromanage.
We decided that as we were getting married forever, it made sense that the day was about us, together. We stayed together the night before and saw each other before the ceremony with our parents, and walked into the ceremony together. Although this was apparently controversial (ha!) it was super fun and made the day feel really celebratory. It was lovely to wake up together and get excited about the day ahead, and take a few minutes together before the ceremony.
After the ceremony (which was very happy and full of laughter!) it was party time! The Andy Williams Band were a great fit for us and the dance floor didn’t stop. The whole day was brilliant and hopefully our guests enjoyed it just as much as we did!”
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Roissetter, thank you for being so wonderful to work with, I had an absolute ball!! See you soon hopefully! xxxx
