I met Mark and Geoff through their niece Rebecca’s wedding to Chris, which I photographed last year. It was such an amazing celebration that after being together for 15 years, it was the inspiration Mark & Geoff needed to take the next step and finally become husband and husband. I was thrilled when they asked me to photograph their big day. We have a mutual love of architecture and on my favourite street in Liverpool, in one of its most spectacular buildings, Liverpool Town Hall, Mark & Geoff would be married. With its incredible dome, chambers and grand ball rooms, its one of those buildings that is a real treat for the eyes, with stunning details everywhere you look.
This was to be a celebration like no other, with music, love & laughter and enough joy to immerse yourself in fully. I met the guys nice and early. We’d heard rumours of a Storm Denis trying to scupper our plans so we decided to have a bit of fun and get some photos done before the rain and the guests arrived. By the time everyone had arrived, including Geoff’s beloved Dad, the guys were completely ready to pledge their love to one another.
The grand ballroom with its decadent and magnificent chandeliers was filled to the brim with all they love most in the world ready and waiting. Mark & Geoff were escorted down the aisle together by David & Julie with young Harry as their ring bearer. Mark & Geoff walked together, marking the start of the first day of the rest of their lives together. What I loved most was watching the love wash over everyone’s faces, how this moment was so joyful, everyone was reveling in the emotion. What I loved most was that Mark’s wedding ring was made from the gold of his parents wedding rings. Even though they could not be with them in person, they were there, in a symbol of love. It was incredibly special. Im grateful to say I was not the only one with tears in my eyes. The guys had their friends, pianist John Mosley & acoustic performer Mayan Brierley on hand to fill the grand ballroom with love and music, and a cheeky surprise of Trumpeter Paul Thomas surprised the guests by performing ‘All you need is Love’. It was our very own ‘Love Actually’ performance and I have to admit I loved every single second of it.
Despite the weather and impending storm, nothing could stop the celebrations and fun from erupting. The amazing Totally D’Vine catered an afternoon tea feast of fabulous proportions, served on tables named after some of the most famous and fabulous queens we all know and love. Choirs sang from their hearts and piano keys played. The guests had the fabulous band Agent Smith on hand to keep their guests partying on the dance floor, although they took minimal persuasion. The staff at the Town Hall were incredible, with all the amazing suppliers on hand they helped make this day so completely perfect and I couldn’t be happier for Mark & Geoff. They deserve every happiness, and like start of their new married life, I hope the joys keep raining down on these two beautiful people like confetti, if anyone deserves it, they do. Much Love, Lisa x
