In complete contrast to my last post, Maria and Mathew chose the vibrant urban setting of Digbeth (or should I say Eastside?) in Birmingham for their wedding. While I love shooting in the countryside, it’s great to be back in the city every so often as it’s such a contrast and there are so many interesting photo opportunities to be had.
Maria got ready at Hotel LaTour with its striking black and white exterior. Inside was rather busy, with quite a few bridesmaids and page boys to get ready (including the couple’s 18 month old son) as well as all the adults! Maria dealt with it all really calmly and emerged looking stunning.
When we arrived at The Old Library at the Custard Factory, I was really pleased to see Steve was their registrar as he’s always really relaxed and puts everyone at their ease. There were certainly lots of laughs during the ceremony!
After the ceremony we did confetti and a few group shots before the guests went over to Nomad for the drinks reception. After Maria and Mathew had had some time to mingle with their guests, I took them off for a walk to get some portraits using the interesting backdrops in and around the Custard Factory, then it was back over to the Old Library which had been turned around ready for the meal. It’s such a stunning space with the high ceiling and arched windows and the delicate peaches and cream, green and gold green colour scheme looked beautiful.
The kids enjoyed themselves and gave me lots of great photo opportunities throughout the day, which was was rounded off with a great disco and some photo props. I'll leave you to enjoy some pictures which give a flavour of the day!
I’m very happy to be a recommended supplier at The Old Library (and Fazeley Studios), so if you’re looking for a photographer for your wedding there, please get in touch as 2018 is filling up fast!
