The Venue inside the Royal Liver Building – The Perfect Liverpool Wedding Venue

Housed within the Grade I listed The Royal Liver Building, The Venue offers brides the chance to wed in style in one of Liverpool’s most famous landmarks. Boasting incredible panoramic views over the River Mersey it offers a spectacular space both inside and out for a truly magical day.

Following its recent refurbishment, The Venue features a beautiful interior with stunning white walls and huge windows creating a light, bright and spacious setting – the perfect blank canvas for brides to design their big day in any way they wish.

The exquisite décor means it is the ideal location for couples to celebrate their day in style, whatever the season. While two interconnecting rooms mean The Venue can cater for intimate smaller services as well as larger wedding parties of up to 200 guests.

A unique feature is its private balcony allowing couples and their guests to enjoy drinks and canapes overlooking Liverpool’s world famous waterfront – maybe even enjoying the sights of one of the spectacular cruise liners often docked at the ferry terminal.

The Venue is licensed for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships. Weddings can take place in either The Bella Ballroom or Bertie Suite, or both. The archway out to the balcony in the Bella Boardroom is a popular setting for couples to say ‘I do’. It can host 140 seated or 200 standing guests, so there is plenty of space for all your friends and family to see the moment you are made man and wife.

In contrast to the modern first floor setting of The Venue, the downstairs interior of the Royal Liver Building offers grand, historic and original features so guests can enjoy a striking backdrop from the minute they enter the building – and some fantastic original photo opportunities.

Karen Yates, Regional Sales Development Manager at The Venue, said: “No two brides ever want the same thing for their big day and we work alongside each couple to ensure they have the magical day they deserve. Our space provides a perfect canvas for whatever colour or theme brides want to use and we have a fantastic team who can create any look they want.

“We also have extremely talented chefs on board from Dougherty & Allen who prepare delicious wedding breakfasts in a range of styles, from a full formal dinner to an afternoon tea or twilight buffet.

“Our views across the River Mersey are stunning and being situated right in the heart of the city means couples can raise a toast against the bright lights of Liverpool, as they celebrate in one of the city’s most beautiful buildings.”

The Venue provides experienced event managers on hand throughout the planning process to guide couples through every element of organisation. From arranging all the production elements, such as furniture and flowers, to helping book bands, DJs and set the perfect lighting effect. The space comes fully equipped with atmospheric lighting, a PA system for speeches, reception and dining furniture and a state of the art kitchen.

The Venue even offers couples the ultimate photo opportunity. Newlyweds can head up to the roof of the Royal Liver Building to capture exclusive wedding photographs with views of the River Mersey or the cityscape of Liverpool in the background.
