Colourful Wedding Photography at the Palm House in Sefton Park

Sefton Park Palm House wedding ceremony

In 2023, I visited Sefton Park Palm House for the first time to photograph a wedding as a second shooter.

From the moment I saw this beautiful and unique building, I fell in love with it! The Palm House is like heaven for lovers of plants and flowers like myself.

This stunning wedding venue compliments my colourful style of wedding photography so well, so I would love to photograph more weddings here in the future.

About Sefton Park Palm House

The Palm House is a stunning Victorian glasshouse in Liverpool.

It is a listed building that originally opened to the public in 1896. After falling into disrepair in the 1980s, The Palm House was dismantled piece by piece and restored to its former glory in 2001.

Some of the plants growing in the Palm House are survivors from the historic Liverpool Botanical Collection, one of the oldest in the country!

You’ll find landmark icon Palm House in the heart of Sefton Park just outside Liverpool city centre.

Sefton Park is a 200-acre Grade One listed park open to the public all year round. It has a lake, a cafe, and plenty of walking routes to choose from. Dogs are welcome in the park too!

A Botanical Wedding Ceremony Space

The Palm House has plenty of space in the main area of the building to hold civil wedding ceremonies for between 80 and 220 wedding guests. Your ceremony backdrop for wedding photos will be the lush green foliage that climbs the walls towards the top of the glass dome.
