dream venue: titanic hotel liverpool

March 2nd, 2018 | Rachel Parry

Stanley's Bar & Grill

One of the elements of our job that we love most is being able to hook-up our readers with the very best venues and suppliers across the North; not only hopefully helping to make the wedding planning that bit easier for you, but also opening your eyes to options you weren’t even aware of.

Today we’re thrilled to be introducing a brand new Sponsor venue to the blog, and one that might just cause you to go all heart-shaped-eyes – drumroll please, for the stunning Titanic Hotel Liverpool.

Located on the city’s uber-cool Stanley Dock, this is an example of urban luxe at its best. Combining its history and industrial architecture with contemporary interiors and opulent touches, Titanic Hotel is the perfect choice for couples seeking a cool venue with the wow-factor.

Within its handsome red brick walls, the hotel houses a choice of two spectacular wedding settings for varying size parties, plus jaw-droppingly-gorgeous accommodation and even a plush wellness centre.

We know, amazing right?! So, let’s hand over to the hotel’s team for full details on this impressive Liverpool gem.

DIARY DATE: The Titanic Hotel’s Wedding Show takes place this Sunday 4th March, 11am to 3pm, free entry, giving couples the opportunity to view the venue, meet the team and be inspired by a selection of local suppliers. Full details below.

With images provided by Matthew Rycraft, Andrew Billington, Big Entertainment, ER Photography, Lifeline Photography.

Titanic-Liverpool-7272

Can you tell us a little about the history of the venue?

the titanic hotel say: Titanic Hotel and Rum Warehouse is part of the redevelopment of the historic Stanley Dock complex. It is located in what was the North Warehouse. The North Warehouse was built in 1846 and finished in 1854 and has been derelict for a number of years. Part of the North Warehouse was damaged in an air raid in World War II. The Rum Warehouse, which is attached to the North Warehouse and built in the 1950’s, has become a major new conference, banqueting and exhibition venue for 21st century Liverpool.

The luxury four-star hotel is set in what was the North Warehouse and boasts views over the Mersey estuary and Tobacco Warehouse, the biggest brick building in the world. Titanic Hotel set within a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was opened in 2014 after a £36 million renovation, which has seen the once industrious warehouse transformed into a luxury destination in Liverpool.

Steeped in heritage and style, the iconic Titanic Hotel Liverpool is impressive in every way.

How would you describe the look and feel of the venue?

The luxury 4-star hotel is one of the largest brick buildings in the world – complete with original exposed brick arches reflecting the hotel’s rich heritage and history. Titanic Hotel adjoins the incredible Rum Warehouse, that is the hotel’s primary wedding venue, and West Bay, the hotel’s newest separate event space contributing to Titanic’s entire offering.

The hotel has ensured that the interior design is contemporary luxury, yet also reflects its spectacular history and so it boasts original redbrick, steel pillars, vaulted ceilings, stone floors and floor-to-ceiling windows. Rum Warehouse and West Bay are stunning wedding venues that can be tailored to your special day.

Rum Warehouse2

Can you tell us what each of the ceremony and reception areas offer to couples?  

Titanic Hotel has two impressive wedding and events spaces; the vast and versatile Rum Warehouse and the new intimate West Bay:

Rum Warehouse

A beautifully renovated 1950’s warehouse, Rum Warehouse is the perfect banqueting space for your wedding reception and a stunning venue for your ceremony overlooking the Stanley Dock. In fact, it offers the perfect blank canvas for every style of wedding.

Rum Warehouse is a generous venue accommodating up to 500 guests for a seated wedding breakfast. Due to the grand scale of the venue you can invite everyone from your nearest and dearest to your distant cousins without ever worrying about invitation lists. (Please note that we do require a minimum number of 100 day and 180 evening guests).

For something a little different, why not have your wedding ceremony on the impressive TitanicStaircase followed by your wedding breakfast in Rum Warehouse?

West Bay

West Bay is an exceptional new wedding venue reflective of our rich maritime heritage and restored warehouse design. Its stone floors, steel pillars and vaulted brick ceilings are perfectly in keeping with the distinctive style of the hotel and venue. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer striking views of the dock and the outdoor space on the colonnade is ideal for summer drinks receptions.

West Bay can accommodate up to 180 guests for a seated wedding ceremony and breakfast. (Please note that we do require a minimum number of 80 day and 120 evening guests).

Rum Warehouse

What sort of bride would be a Titanic Hotel bride?

A Titanic Hotel bride is anyone who wants to celebrate their special day in style. We can transform our wedding spaces to reflect all themes and no request is too much for the team who will go above and beyond to ensure that those getting married are in love with the venue and their wedding day itself. Every bride to be can be a Titanic Hotel bride and we’ll be here to offer as little or as much advice and support as they require.

How can your staff help to make the planning process easier and the big day amazing?

Titanic Hotel’s experienced and dedicated wedding coordinators will take care of all the details of each wedding. They will work with couples on everything from venue arrangements, menu choices and accommodation requirements to wellness packages, ensuring they all fit together seamlessly.

Superior Room

Can you tell us about the accommodation at the venue?

Titanic Hotel Liverpool has a whole range of room types available including classic, superior, superior dockside, superior corner and the stunning presidential suite. With beautiful views across the waterfront, Titanic Hotel has retained many of its original features to create a truly distinctive and memorable stay for guests. There’s a total of 153 bedrooms which each have original windows and some with exposed brickwork and are furnished in subtle tones. Titanic Hotel’s bedrooms are all very spacious with high ceilings creating an airy retreat away from the city.

For the happy couple, we offer a complimentary Superior Dockside room for the night of the wedding with the option to upgrade to our Presidential Suite at an extra charge. We also offer a discount rate for wedding guests.

The hotel also houses a spa, can you tell us a little about it?

Maya Blue Wellness is tucked away in the hotel and is the ideal place to indulge in some time away from the hustle and bustle, pre- or post-wedding.

Amid the red brick arches and beautiful cool stone floors lie the warm waters of the wellness centre. Tranquil yet atmospheric, Maya Blue features a unique thermal suite, hydrotherapy pool, sanarium, relaxation area, ten treatment rooms offering an extensive range of treatments including facials, body treatments and beauty treatments and health & fitness centre.

Wedding wellness packages also available.

roses & romance. a classic wedding at worsley park marriott, manchester – sarah & phil

February 13th, 2018 | Laura McDonagh

A Classic Wedding at Worsley Park Marriott (c) Tomcat Photography (26)

Time for some feel-good spring wedding inspiration to inject some sunshine into this dreary grey February – are you ready? Because we definitely are!

The lovely Sarah and Phil were married last May at the Worsley Park Marriot Hotel, Manchester. After reading about Phil’s uber-romantic proposal speech we expected big things and, by golly, we got them – roses galore, a Rolls Royce fit for a princess and a ruched satin fishtail dress of dreaminess. Romance in spades, readers.

We love the personalised cocktail ideas (Blushing Bride, anyone?) and the personalised CD favours for their guests, plus those images of this gorgeous pair embracing feel like we’re sneaking a peek at a completely intimate moment – in a good way!

Diary Date: If Sarah and Phil’s choice of venue has captured your attention then be sure to join us for our ‘Love Parade’ Valentine’s Wedding Show at Worsley Park Marriott Hotel, this Sunday 18th February, 11am to 2pm, FREE ENTRY. This fabulous event will give you the opportunity to view this splendid venue for yourselves while meeting a fine selection of the area’s top wedding suppliers. Pre-register here to attend. We look forward to seeing you there!

A Classic Wedding at Worsley Park Marriott (c) Tomcat Photography (27)

sarah says: We got engaged on Christmas Day morning in 2014. Phil and I were sitting in the front room in our PJs. We‘d opened all of our gifts – or so I thought. Phil asked me to close my eyes as he had another present for me which was a surprise. He went on to say that I’d changed his life and he couldn’t live without me, hence he’d got me another gift. He then told me to open my eyes and there he was with the ring box open! He asked me to marry him and I obviously said yes – and I couldn’t stop crying!

Our wedding was set for 26th May 2017. Phil had always wanted to get married in May; it’s his favourite month because he seems to think the weather is perfect!  I could see benefits to getting married in all seasons so I was easily persuaded.

A Classic Wedding at Worsley Park Marriott (c) Tomcat Photography (12)

Our venue was Worsley Park Marriott for both the ceremony and the reception. We used Brides Up North to research venues initially and attended a few wedding fairs – when we came to Worsley we knew instantly that we would get married there. We even loved the experience of driving up to the entrance – it just felt right for us. Plus, we live locally, know the area well and felt it would also be great for guests travelling more of a distance.

A Classic Wedding at Worsley Park Marriott (c) Tomcat Photography (29)

Our theme for the wedding was music. Both Phil and I absolutely love music and our taste is so similar, yet very eclectic. We named each table after a meaningful song title and we also booked a band called Under the Covers, who were amazing and performed all of our favourite music.

Our colour scheme was coral; it’s my favourite colour because it’s so bright and cheerful and perfect for a spring/summer wedding.

A Classic Wedding at Worsley Park Marriott (c) Tomcat Photography (33)

I wore an ivory fishtail dress from Bliss Bridal in Bolton. I saw it in the window and knew straight away it was ‘the one’. I asked to try it on and cried before I’d even looked in the mirror! It was classic but not like any other dress I’d seen before.
