Fay and Shane’s Fazeley Studios wedding in Birmingham
“I spent ages looking for a photographer, there’s so much choice but I’d say 85% of the photographers I found offer the same kind of thing, and it wasn’t what we were looking for. We decided one night to look for a photographer that would travel rather than someone local to the west midlands and that’s when I found Babb Photo. After looking through Laura’s gallery we fell in love with the images. The photos I saw were creative and captured feeling.
I remember when I contacted Laura she was away so couldn’t get back to us straight away. I spent the weekend torturing myself looking through her galleries, reading her blog and falling more and more in love with her work. Luckily for us when she got back she replied to let us know that our date was free. Laura was amazing to work with, and we loved having our photos taken.”
I might have welled up a little bit when I read Fay and Shane’s feedback. They were so warm and lovely to work with. From the moment I first met them in London to talk about their wedding plans over a cup of tea they were really welcoming, and I loved every minute of their wedding at Fazeley Studios in Digbeth, Birmingham.
A double wedding celebration!
Fay and Shane’s wedding ceremony was really special. They were married on the anniversary of Shane’s parent’s wedding, in the same church where his parents were married! The vicar made a point of showing the marriage certificate from Shane’s parent’s wedding all those years before. It was really lovely.
A BBQ wedding breakfast at Fazeley Studios, Digbeth
After the Church ceremony, we all made our way to Fazeley Studios in Digbeth. Digbeth is such a fun location – it’s full of creative businesses, graffiti and gritty urban backdrops, and Fazeley Studios is definitely one of Birmingham’s coolest wedding venues. Fay and Shane opted to have a laid back and relaxed BBQ for their wedding breakfast. Guests mingled in the courtyard, in the sunshine, while they ate.
After dinner we headed out into the streets of Digbeth, to take some portraits of Fay and Shane against the backdrop of this quirky part of Birmingham.
