The Richmond Hotel

This characterful Grade II listed building is situated in Liverpool’s city centre surrounded by a host of quirky and beautiful spaces for photographs. The beautiful stone entrance, which is decorated with flags and floral displays, leads guests inside to find elegant and sophisticated interiors. Its function spaces boast star-lit backdrops, an LED dancefloor and light-up letters. With 139 rooms, guests won’t have far to travel from bar to bed.

Ceremonies take place in the intimate Florentyna’s Suite. The wood-panelled space has room for up to 30 guests. The William and Kane Suite is a large, multi-functional area, which holds up to 150 people. It can be split in two to become a ceremony room and it has its own bar for post-vow celebrations. The R Bar and Brasserie is a contemporary option for couples looking for informal dining.

The venue offers brides and grooms a complimentary meal prior to the big day as well as wedding-night accommodation. The wedding packages here are very popular but that doesn’t mean there’s no room for flexibility, the experienced team can take care of every detail.
