Bluecoat Liverpool, what can we say, its going to be our first outing out of Manchester and I’m really excited to be collaborating with this awesome gallery which is situated slap bang in the middle of the city. I sent our Rachael flying solo on her very first photo shoot for Bridal Chic. The outcome was sooooooo good. All I can say right now is how much I love my friends. Thank you to my beautiful model Laura, you truly did these images justice. Read Rachael’s account about her day back home to Liverpool.

“Sunday 13th March turned out to be a pretty awesome day. It was a beautiful day ( no snow for a change ) and I was ready for a day in Liverpool. The lovely Kenny came and collected me and we were off. I hadn’t met Kenny before and I’m glad no one else was in the car because I think we might have scared them off! Let’s just say..between the both of us we can talk for Britain. Love it!! Kenny did an amazing job, his vision for the end product and expertise is spot on, I’m really glad I got the chance to work along side him.”

“We arrived at The Bluecoat, nice and early ready to go where we met the gorgeous Laura, our model for the day. Laura was amazing for the whole day just totally up for it and a pleasure to work with, we hope to work with her again and again. We wanted to show the different areas within the building you could potentially have taken on your wedding day. What poses you can do, what style, how to show off your bouquet in the non traditional manner… see for yourself, Kenny Brown our photographer had this shoot set down to tee.”

“Anneliese – Satyrion, our hair and make up guru was on hand as ever and did a brilliant job. Even the men commented on how great Laura’s hair was.. and if guys notice then it’s sure to be good! The look for Laura was big wavy Hollywood hair with vintage accessories, natural make up with a bold red lip. Anneliese got it spot as ever and Laura looked STUNNING.”

“The dress..what can I say?
The very talented Ella Moore made this dress in less than a week ! A WEEK……without ever seeing Laura, making the dress off Laura’s own measurements it fitted perfectly. This backless beauty of a gown is a showstopper, any bride looking for a one off piece should get in contact with Ella Moore no questions asked. We are excited to see Laura’s next creation for our photoshoot…..sshhh its a secret and we ain’t spilling”

The Venue Information.

They say:
“Something old…Bluecoat is the oldest building in Liverpool City Centre, dating back to the early 18th Century.  It has UNESCO world heritage status and is an elegant, Grade 1 listed building, with a fascinating history.

Something new…Since the building reopened in 2008 after a programme of conservation, restoration and new build, Bluecoat has established itself as Liverpool’s creative arts hub for the 21st Century.  With state-of-the art facilities and flexible spaces, we offer a range of rooms, mixing historic features with a modern, creative edge.  We also have an attractive garden and courtyard to give your wedding something extra.

Something borrowed….Being an innovative centre for contemporary visual and performance art, we haven’t borrowed much from traditional wedding venues, apart from excellent service, attention to detail and quality.

Something blue…If you are looking for something really different, Bluecoat presents a genuinely unique setting and service for your wedding, civil partnership ceremony, and/or reception.

Being creative is what we do best.  To make your big day special, we offer a variety of packages to suit all budgets.  We can also work with you to create something bespoke: a drinks reception in the courtyard garden; a wedding breakfast or evening reception in our bright and airy restaurant, Upstairs at Bluecoat; dancing ‘til late in our high-tech performance space.

Our creative retail partners sell an amazing array of hand-crafted items, like engraved rings, paper-flower decorations and crocheted wedding bunting.

We provide an event manager to make sure that you and your guests enjoy a relaxed day of fun and laughter in Liverpool’s most creative setting.

Come and have a look around

For an informal look around, and to get a flavour of how we can make your big day really special, please contact us at weddings@thebluecoat.org.uk or telephone 0151 702 5324.”
