Our wedding ceremony will begin in Blackburne House at 3pm. You’ll be able to start arriving from 2:30pm but please make sure you’ve taken your seat by 2:45pm.
If you have a little spare time before the ceremony and fancy a drink or some lunch, there are plenty of nice places nearby like Host, The Quarter or the iconic Philharmonic pub (where you might find Martin…).
Free parking is available at Blackburne House during the ceremony, but the car park will then be locked so cars will need to be moved to another location when we leave. If you’re planning on driving to the reception at Oh Me Oh My, there are some parking suggestions in the Travel and Accommodation section.
After the ceremony, we’ll all head across to Oh Me Oh My which is right opposite the Liver Buildings. The drinks reception will begin at 4:30pm, which will be followed by dinner, cake and dancing until 1am.

We love kids and the littlest members of our immediate family will be with us on the day. We also know that our wedding venue, whilst accommodating, is not a particularly child friendly location (think an open tread iron spiral staircase, candles galore and doors leading directly onto busy city roads).
If you are able to get a baby sitter, we’d love for you to be able to let your hair down and to enjoy the day without worry.
We do understand that childcare can be tricky and would hate for any difficulties to prevent you from spending the day with us. If leaving the kids at home isn’t possible for you, we’re happy for you all to join us. Just drop us an email if you’d like to know a bit more or want to have a chat with us before deciding.
To make sure we cater for everyone, please let us know in your RSVP whether you would like to bring your children.
Due to bar restrictions, all under 18’s must head home by 11pm (so the adults can keep on partying!).
Please donʼt feel obliged to give us a gift – all we really want is to have a lovely wedding which we can share with our friends and family. However, if you would like to give a gift and are looking for inspiration, we have set up a list at John Lewis which you can view by visiting https://www.johnlewisgiftlist.com/giftint/JSPs/GiftList/BuyGifts/GuestFindAList.jsp and entering gift list number 684103. Alternatively, Canadian dollars for our honeymoon would also be very much appreciated.
