Finding the Best Photographer

Matthew Rycraft has shot many weddings in Liverpool at The Shankly Hotel, guiding couples through their day and ensuring each photograph captures a special moment. The care and dedication that goes into every wedding shine through in the stunning photos that come out the other end.

When the Garden of Eden opened for weddings in 2016, Matt photographed the very first ceremony, beautifully capturing and showcasing the elegance of the unique venue.

It’s an undeniable fact that the Merseyside based photographer has set the standard for architectural wedding photography in the area. It’s clear from his breath-taking portfolio that having an expert eye for a dramatic and inspiring shot can be the difference between a good photo and a great photo.

The passion that emulates through the photos helps to make Matthew’s photos the benchmark for wedding photography not only at The Shankly Hotel but at our sister hotel, 30 James Street. His wedding photography really helps to enhance the already stunning features of both iconic buildings, with the entrance archways and the staircase at the former home of White Star Line headquarters being particularly favourite locations of his.

It’s these great aspects and years of experience that has led to a firm and reliable relationship with the wedding teams at both hotels. This connection and rapport really help to bring a wedding together, ensuring the day runs smoothly and the bride gets the images that she will cherish for a lifetime.

Making decisions in partnership with the wedding team is the key to making the day perfect, running smoothly and in the best interest of the happy couple. Matt helps to capture the perfect moment in time, using years of experience and a well-established, tried and tested style that incorporate a vision of drama, the classic and the natural.

The Perfect Heavenly Venue

Love Stories of Past and Present from the Shankly Hotel

It’s an undeniable passion that Bill Shankly had for the game of football. In fact, he would probably scoff at the fact that we have just referred to football as a game. Shankly’s love for the sport ran so deep he is known for having just three great passions.

His footballing career, his darling wife Nessie and their family.

First came love, then came marriage

Shankly and Ness

The pair met during Bill’s time stationed as a Corporal at RAF barracks just outside Glasgow where Nessie was working in the WRAF. They were married in 1944 and had their first child, Barbara, shortly after in 1945.

It is rumoured that despite his new-found love for Agnes, Bill couldn’t let go of his passion for football and rumour once had it that Bill took Nessie to see a Rochdale game on their anniversary, something that was however quickly discredited by Shanks himself who barked;

“Of course I didn’t take my wife to see Rochdale as an anniversary present. It was her birthday. Would I have got married in the football season? Anyway, it was Rochdale reserves.”

Nessie’s unquestioning attendance of a match for a birthday present set the pace for a future life of supporting her husband’s insatiable appetite for football.

There’s even word that Bill took Nessie to a Tranmere match as a birthday present also, this rumour was quickly quashed by Nessie who corrected “it was Accrington Stanley but it wasn’t a birthday present”.

 

The life of the first WAG

Nessie was a player’s wife before she became the second lady of Liverpool football.

During the early years of her marriage, she married a star player whom 5 years later became manager at Carlisle United.

From here Bill went on to manage Huddersfield in 1956, then came made the final move in his career to Liverpool in 1959.

Through all that Nessie was behind Bill, never complaining and resiliently supporting her husband’s unrelenting passion for football.

Whilst Bill would be out giving his all to LFC, Nessie would be at home helping raise the grandchildren. Having already brought up 2 daughters Barbara and Jeanette Nessie would also devote her time to entertaining and feeding fans of Shankly and the grounds staff of LFC.

Behind every great man, there is a great woman

Bill and Ness Shankly

After all the support Nessie gave Bill over the years, through thick and thin the couple remained a beacon of true love.

It wasn’t until 1974, 30 years after they married, that Bill decided to relinquish his greatest passion in life in favour of spending quality time wife his wife and family.

In his own words during his retirement announcement;

“I’ve been so wedded to Liverpool that I’ve taken Nessie out only twice in 40 years. It’s time she saw more of my old ugly mug”

So, in time Nessie’s utter devotion to the great man paid off. He had come to realise that even though his love for Liverpool football was strong he had a family and a wife who were missing his attentions.

After half a century of living and breathing the game, Bill Shankly relinquished his strong ties to Liverpool football and began devoting more time to his family. After all;

“There’s nobody closer to you than your own kith and kin; your own blood. I’ve got my wife, my daughters, grandchildren, and my sons in law. They’re the closest to me and I would die for them.”

Love of the People

Shankly love of the people

 

Bill Shankly was and still, is adored by the people of Liverpool.

His dedication to the city earned him the title of honorary Scouser. Without the unyielding love and support of Nessie, his achievements would not have been possible.

Today Bill and Nessie are remembered as the couple who made people happy.

After years of tracking his successful career across the country, Nessie and the Shankly family had set up home in Liverpool. Laying down routes that would help them leave the loving legacy that they both created.

Even with the tragic passing of her one true love, Nessie was comforted in the fact that the people of Liverpool would remember Bill Shankly with such fondness and hold him in loving memory.

What the love of Bill and Ness inspired

Today at the Shankly Hotel our guests can come and learn all about the happiness Bill and Ness shared, as well love they passed onto their children and grandchildren.

The Shankly family love

The Shankly Hotel was built upon the strong family values that were made by Bill and Nessie and during their own relationship. The commitment they had to each other’s happiness filtered down into the family we all know today.

Love is always in the air at the Shankly Hotel

Love continues to be a huge part of what goes on at the Shankly Hotel, as we celebrate many happy couple’s special occasions.

Guests at the Shankly Hotel have proposed, others have said yes. Some have celebrated anniversaries of happy marriages and others have started their journey into married life in our stunning Liverpool wedding venue Eden.

Even our own Shankly Hotel Director and grandson of Bill and Nessie; Chris Carline, popped the big question to Lisa, now his intended on the Eden rooftop garden where so many happy dreams have come true.

So on Valentine’s day this year and for the rest of the year ahead, make a visit to the Shankly Hotel to celebrate some fabulous love stories from the past. Or perhaps make some lasting memories of your own.

Top 10 tips for the Grooms ‘Big Day’

So after popping the ‘big question’ and getting the answer yes, have you considered what happens between now and the ‘big day’. Your bride is most likely to have had the perfect wedding planned to perfection since childhood. But what about you?

Hopefully we can help you along with some top tips in preparation for the special day

Choose a stylish Ensemble

Quite possibly the most important input you have is in your attire. Your intended is likely to outshine you, so the need for you to look as dapper as possible has never been greater. Your suit should fit you like a second skin and be as comfortable as it is stylish. Never a better reason to choose high quality bespoke tailoring than on your wedding day. From top to toe Signature Bespoke can provide you with a truly personalised all-encompassing service. Just like your bride to be why not make a day of visiting your tailor with your groomsmen. Make the visit an experience, as unique to you as the finished product. From fitting to delivery Signature Bespoke’s Master Tailors will ensure you look the very best you can. From the flawlessly finished lapels on your suit to the tips of the toes on your tailor made shoes. Every inch of you suitably styled matching the perfection of your bride to be.

Pick the best Groomsmen

Making sure you have the best team supporting you on your special day is essential. Although your best buddy might be a great laugh and a guaranteed party monster, he may not be an entirely suitable choice for best man. There is also a certain amount of etiquette to be considered when selecting those to stand by you at the altar. Your brother, your intendeds brother and husband to the maid of honour are all in the running when sticking to ancient customs. We believe that your groomsmen should provide you with support and stability. The type of guys whom you can rely on should anything go awry and those who will help to perfect your special day.

Select Perfect Groomsmen gifts

To honour those standing by your side on the big day, a special and personal gift says it all. Odds are they all have hip flasks, and cufflinks of their own so how to show you appreciate their time with something unique? Signature Bespoke, as well as outfitting you and your party for the special day, also produce high quality, uniquely styled pens. Making an ideal gift that shows thanks and appreciation for your groomsmen’s support.

Write Your vows from the heart

You know how you feel about your bride to be and, no doubt, so does she. Expressing these feelings in words can be difficult but a top tip from us is to forget about the crowd of people watching you and speak from your heart. Your vows are just for you two so make them memorable, personal and honest. Odds are no matter what you say, it won’t change the way she feels about you anyway.

A Stag night stay in the UK

With the ever increasing extravagances of stag night celebrations, we believe it’s time to consider a closer to home alternative to Vegas or Prague. Forgo the expenditure of travelling abroad and instead spend those pennies on a luxury break at The Shankly Hotel. Our Rum and Fun Package is a great way to experience the city of Liverpool whilst having a top laugh with the guys. Including an overnight stay, welcome beers, entry to a gentleman’s club and a fun rum tasting experience, you and the lads can enjoy a chic and stylish stag night with none of the travel hassle. An added bonus, no one will be lost in Vegas or left at the airport.

Choosing the Wedding rings

If you’re not big on jewellery then the wedding ring choice is likely to be a challenge. As this is something you are going to be wearing forever, its best to make your choice carefully with the future in mind. The simple gold band can be embellished or interpreted in many different ways today, making the choices seem endless. This is an opportunity to inject your own style and taste into the relationship, so choose wisely as a chance like this may not present itself again. Ever!

Clip on or tie?

A major decision but a short one. Do you go for opt for complicated chic or simplistic style? Will you need assistance on the day tying a perfect bow or Windsor, or go it alone with your clip on alternative? Decisions, decisions.

Visit the Barber

There is much to be said about a clean and polished look for your wedding day, but what if this simply isn’t your style? The fashion restrictions for grooms have relaxed over time, allowing decisions for hair styles and facial hair to be made by you. Looking your best can simply be that you feel comfortable throughout the day. After all your intended is marrying you for better or worse so what’s a little stylish stubble when measured against a future of happiness?

Relax the night before the big day

Burger-2

The night before could bring to a head all those pre wedding jitters you had previously dismissed. Rather than risk worrying all night on your lonesome consider booking a group apartment to share with your groomsmen. Take the opportunity to enjoy their company in style and relaxation. Keep it simple and organise a Fifa night in at The Shankly Hotel, in one of our luxury group suites. Or enjoy watching the match in The Bastion Bar and Restaurant whilst dining and drinking those last beers as a single man. Take this time the night before to relax and wind down, in preparation for the excitement of the next day.

Get her the perfect gift

A fairly modern yet important addition to the tradition of marriage, the groom to bride wedding gift. Some of the smarter grooms are opting to pay for an item of their fiancées bridal ensemble, others are footing the bill for a bride’s day of pampering. Providing that unexpected trinket will honour your special day together. A show of appreciation for her agreeing to marry you and a thank you for the most special day of your lives.

We know that a wedding is about two people beginning a lifetime of happiness together, we are here to help make sure in the days leading up to the big one you, The Groom, are as considered as the blushing bride.

Call 0151 236 0166 or email info@signatureliving.co.uk to arrange your stag celebrations, or a nights stay before the big day, we are here to help you enjoy all the best bits of getting married.
