The Palm House in Sefton Park, a Grade II* listed Victorian Glass House which houses the Liverpool Botanical Collection, was named the winner in the Best City Wedding Venue category after a successful round of shortlisting, followed by a public vote to determine the winner.
The UK Wedding Awards are a partnership of leading brands ‘Hitched’, ‘Perfect Wedding’ and ‘You & Your Wedding’ and aims to identify a collective ‘who’s who’ of the very best fashion houses, gift registrars, event suppliers, travel companies and wedding venues that the country has to offer.
The Palm House was up against steep competition, and was pitted against many impressive venues across the country including Nottingham-based Awkwright Rooms and the Bristol Harbour Hotel and Spa, as well as two other Liverpool venues: Oh Me Oh My and Siren.
Rosemary Sorrell, events manager at The Palm House, said:
“To be competing against such a wide variety of venues that are iconic in their own right is in itself an accomplishment, but to then be awarded the winner is something we are incredibly proud of.
“The Palm House is like no other wedding venue, with a vast array of tropical plants and flowers on display throughout the year, our venue offers something completely unique. We are so lucky to have such an exceptional space to host weddings, which countless couples have already experienced on their special day. And with our dedicated weddings team, we’re confident that we can meet every need and provide the very best service.”
Roy Boardman, director at The Palm House, said:
“I am incredibly proud of the hardworking team at The Palm House, as we would not be calling ourselves winners if it wasn’t for the dedication and passion they demonstrate every single day.
“Receiving this award is exceptionally special for us, especially considering that it has been awarded by professionals and our contemporaries. For The Palm House to be named the winner against such prestigious competition is a strong indication that we are creating something truly unique that cannot be replicated anywhere else is the country. To me, that to me is an astonishing achievement, and we are so proud of the recognition.”
