Our talented team at 30 James Street recently carried out a fascinating study into all of the wonderful weddings we have hosted in our luxurious venue over the years. We know that a 30 James Street wedding is something many couples dream of, from the amazing views, to the historic backdrop and the opulent features.
But, what we really wanted to find out was just how lucky our beautiful venue was. So, we decided to ask all of the brides and grooms who have graced our aisle how they were getting on since their big day!
After hearing the news from the Office of National Statistics in 2016 that revealed 101,055 opposite sex couples divorced in England and Wales, we just had to find out whether this was true for our happy couples.
To our amazement, of the 500 weddings that have taken place at our glorious venue 30 James Street, 485 of them are still going strong today! That’s a wonderful 97% of our beautiful brides and grooms that chose to tie the knot with us are still happily married.
Our amazing hotel 30 James Street first opened its doors in 2014, set within a magnificent piece of Liverpool’s historic maritime past, Albion House. Once home to the White Star Line’s headquarters, this iconic building had been left empty and had sadly fallen into disrepair.
Aspiring to breathe new life back into the beautiful building, the Signature Living Group saved and redeveloped this magical building, transforming it into the luxurious Titanic inspired hotel we see today.
The White Star Grand Hall was the first Signature Living venue to host an amazing Liverpool wedding. Within walls that once served as a first class waiting lounge for White Star Line passengers, couples began to walk down aisles, say their vows to each other and celebrate their marriage in truly elegant surroundings.
Since the very first 30 James Street wedding, we have always made sure that our couples experience the day of their dreams, from catering to planning, decoration and thoughtful personal touches. We specialise in delivering the most enchanting wedding days.
Signature Living’s proprietor and co-founder Katie Kenwright said: “30 James Street has become synonymous with weddings since we opened the hotel over four years ago. We offer complete packages – luxury bridal suites, rooftop bar and restaurant and spa – so brides and grooms feel completely relaxed in preparation for their big day.
“We know people want to relive the moment they officially tied the knot, so on their anniversary couples can return for a complimentary stay. Perhaps this is just one of the reasons why our approach has proven to be successful, with marriages that have taken place in our venue truly standing the test of time.
But, don’t just take our word for it, newlywed Becky who married her now-husband Charlie in June told us; “We chose 30 James Street for our special day because of its perfect location. People within the hotel go above and beyond to accommodate requests, putting you at ease on what is arguably the biggest moment of your life. Our winter wedding was perfect and we have nothing but happy memories, and other married couples appear to feel the same as we do!”
