Laura and James talk about their special day with us
It’s the most important day of your life, a special occasion that you’ll cherish forever and one that you’ll want everyone to talk about for years to come; so it’s only natural that you’ll want a venue that is perfect.
What better place to hold your wedding than right here at The Corinthian Grand inside the stunning surroundings of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Spa, Liverpool? Well, that’s just what James and Laura decided to do when it came to their special day and they’re delighted that they did.
“We chose the Corinthian Grand because of the sheer beauty of the historic building,” explains James, who runs his own digital marketing agency in Liverpool. “As soon as I saw the breathtaking staircase and the magnificent decor I knew we had to get married here.”
But it’s not just the surroundings that make this such a popular choice for weddings, everything that any happy couple could want is taken care of by the DoubleTree by Hilton, Liverpool staff, meaning everyone can relax and enjoy the day.
“From the moment we arrived, to the day we left they took care of everything,” beams James. “We were treated like royalty and the staff couldn’t have done enough for us. You could say it was the perfect day.”
“The room couldn’t have looked more beautiful,” explains Laura, a primary school teacher originally from Yorkshire. “The lighting was stunning and created just the atmosphere we were looking for, for our special day.”
The exchanging of rings and saying: “I do,” was just the start of it for this happy couple though as they joined friends, family and invited guests for a beautifully cooked three-course meal prepared on the premises by the kitchen staff at DoubleTree by Hilton, Liverpool after a drinks reception in the hotel’s iconic Library Lounge.
“Enjoying a drink with my friends and family on my wedding day was made so special by the history and ambience in the Library lounge,” says James. “Just being in there you can almost feel the past coming back to life and it’s a spectacular place to spend such a special occasion.”
Then, after the meal, it was time for everyone to let their hair down and enjoy themselves as the stunning surroundings of the Corinthian Grand played host to a night of music and dancing into the small hours.
And at the end of such a long and eventful day, there’s only one place that any newly married couple will want to spend their first night together – the incredible Presidential Suite which sits at the very top of this stunning city centre location.
“It has to be seen to be believed,” explains Laura. “The attention to detail is like nothing I’ve ever seen before and I can’t think of anywhere more beautiful to spend our first night as husband and wife.”
Combining a huge sleeping area consisting of two luxurious king beds, walk-in wardrobes, spacious seating area, stunning en-suite bathroom and classic architectural features dating back to the mid 19th-century, the Presidential Suite really is the crowning glory of any wedding package at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Liverpool.
With a feel of a small boutique apartment, it has a luxurious lounge and dining area while the bathroom features an amazing double-steam shower, large bath and twin basins meaning the spacious 40 square metre suite really is the ideal place to spend a special occasion such as your wedding.
“And just when we thought it couldn’t have been any better we were treated to a spectacular wedding breakfast in the Corinthian Grand the next morning,” James says. “Not just for ourselves, but for all the guests that stayed in the DoubleTree by Hilton, Liverpool too.”
It’s fair to say that James and Laura’s choice to hold their wedding at the Corinthian Grand at DoubleTree by Hilton, Liverpool was a popular one for all concerned, something which Laura – the new Mrs Rowan- is keen to tell everyone.
“I really couldn’t have wished for a better wedding day,” she says. “From the moment that we stepped into this beautiful old building to when we left as Mr and Mrs Rowan we couldn’t have asked for anymore. Whether it was the drinks reception served by the fabulous welcoming team in the Library Lounge, Robin, the Concierge, making the guests feel so welcome, the fantastic reception or spending our wedding night in the magnificent Presidential Suite, the whole day felt like a fairytale!”
