WEDDINGS & CIVIL CEREMONIES
THE PERFECT PARTNER
The Florence Institute Trust or The Florrie as she is fondly known is Liverpool’s Grade II listed wedding venue, that combines glamorous Victorian architecture with 21st century design and community spirit. Our seven million pounds restoration has seen a full refurbishment of stunning original features, making this the beautiful setting for you and your guests to celebrate your special day.
Built in 1889 by Sir Bernard Hall in memory of his daughter Florence, was one of the first boys youth clubs in the country. For over a century the Florrie served the local community until its closure in the 1980’s were it fell into disrepair and what followed was a 23 year community campaign to save and restore The Florrie to her former glory. In 2012 she was raised again, winning many prestigious awards for the magnificent restoration including The Institute of Historic Building (IHBC) Conservation Award 2012 and more recently the prestigious Historic England Angel Award 2018 for the best Restoration of a historic building.
The Grand Hall is the ultimate setting for couples seeking astonishing elegant grandeur, incomparable in Liverpool, plus the building and it’s garden belongs to you for the whole day, with pre-wedding-day access to dress The Grand Hall prior to your wedding day.
With a licence to hold civil weddings and civil partnership ceremonies your whole day can be planned around the one venue, granting you and your guests an incredible day to remember, with the option of an extended bar licence to celebrate into the early hours.

“We had our wedding at The Florrie in Liverpool and what a wedding it was! The Florrie is such a beautiful and “unexpected” gem of a venue. The planning process went well especially due to the help of the fantastic Karen, who went out of her way to always answer questions and meet our every need.
The feedback from our guests (which included some of the owners of another local wedding venue) was that it couldn’t have been more beautiful, and the FOOD... well people haven’t stopped talking about how great it was.
The standard was impeccable, and every plate piping hot (which is not always easy with 250 guests). Our day was just perfect and we can’t thank the team at The Florrie enough.”
“What a place…. wow! Our friends and family couldn’t agree more, all commenting on such a special and beautiful place, from the stunning staircase in reception, to the Grand Hall and Victorian gymnasium where we entertained our guests, that make The Florrie and our wedding day so perfect. It’s just a shame we can’t do it all over again, as it went too fast.
Special thanks for all your assistance, it certainly helped that you were so flexible with our package which was the deal breaker for us. Other venues are so rigid with what you have to order, so it was nice to pick exactly what we wanted. All our guests said the food was excellent and they enjoyed the drinks reception, perhaps a little too much, as the drink was flowing and we were all a little jolly by the end of the night!”
“We’d like to send a massive thank you to Anne and the rest of the Florrie team. We had an absolutely amazing wedding - it truly was the best day of our lives - and the Grand Hall and Florrie staff played such a huge part.
The Florrie looked stunning (as it always does). The food was OUTSTANDING - we had so many comments on the day and after that it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had! We really feel we made the best choice in choosing The Florrie for our wedding venue and we will treasure the memories forever.”
