Fazeley Studios Wedding Photographer – Vanessa and Paul

Two weeks ago I had the immense pleasure to photograph Vanessa and Paul’s wonderful wedding at St Paul’s Church in Birmingham and Fazeley Studios in Digbeth.

I met with Vanessa and her bridesmaid Lana on a rainy morning at Harris Gibbs Hair Shop just a stone’s throw from St Paul’s Square in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter. Once their hair had been coiffed, teased and sprayed we then made our way, sheltering the newly styled hair under umbrellas, to the stunning St Pauls House Hotel to finish the bridal preparations.

St Pauls is one of my favourite churches in Birmingham to photograph weddings in. Not only is it a stunning location but Mary, the vicar, is super nice and gives photographers the freedom the of the upstairs balcony meaning there’s lots of opportunity for different shots during the ceremony. Vanessa was given away by her best friend Sarah and looked stunning in her Monsoon wedding dress whilst the groomsmen wore matching blue suits from Slaters Menswear.

After the formalities had been completed everyone headed up onto the balcony for a champagne drinks reception. Once all the glasses had been drained it was off outside onto a classic red Routemaster bus from Central Bus Hire for the short trip over to Fazeley Studios.

Once at Fazeley the guests were treated to a stunning three course wedding breakfast which was followed by the speeches, including a star turn from Paul’s best man Wally, a former British light middleweight boxing champion. I then hit the graffiti laden streets of Digbeth for a few urban portraits with the bride and groom before heading back to Fazeley Studios for the evening party.

The evening reception was kicked off in fine style with the bride and groom’s first dance to Andre Botchelli’s stunning Love in Portofino. This holds special memories for Vanessa and Paul as it was in Portofino where Paul proposed. The dance floor was then opened up to the guests who kept the party going until the small hours.

Here’s a few pictures from Vanessa and Paul’s big day . . .
