I love weddings that break from the norm where the bride and groom do things their own way, Ellie and Jack’s wedding was definitely one of those.
I met up with Ellie and her family early last Saturday morning at Hotel La Tour next to Curzon Street Station in Birmingham city centre. It was an early start as there was a lot to get in during the day; including not one, but two wedding ceremonies and a Great British Bake Off style cake competition! The formal wedding was a small family gathering at Birmingham Register Office before we all hopped on the vintage bus to The Bond Company in Digbeth for the second ceremony with a much larger congregation.
It was a great day and Ellie looked absolutely stunning in her 1950’s inspired Sincerity dress from Creatiques Bridal Boutique of Southsea. The bridesmaids wore beautiful floral dresses from Lady Vintage London whilst Jack was decked out in a sharp blue suit from T.M. Lewin. We had an amazing Italian street food kitchen courtesy of Delizie Italiane and beer provided by Irving Brewers of Portsmouth (the head brewer was a guest!).
The Bond Company is one of Birmingham’s more unique wedding venues. The former Victorian canal side warehouse turned arts complex and event space boast some amazing Victorian architecture which provided a great backdrop for the bridal portraits. Later in the evening Solid Soul kept the warehouse dance floor packed with a mix of jazz, funk and soul tunes from the 60’s to the present day. Outside the groomsmen got stuck into some of the most competitive bouts of Jenga playing ever witnessed!
I also need to say a massive thank you to Amy-Rose from Amy-Rose Photography who did a stellar job second shooting with me. Here’s a few images from Ellie and Jack’s wonderful wedding . . .
