A couple portrait at Verbena Kitchen Stirchley

Charlotte and Kevin's micro wedding at Verbena; an intimate restaurant wedding venue in South Birmingham

Birmingham is jam packed full of cool and creative wedding venues but I share a gem today. wanted to talk about my favourite Intimate wedding venue in Birmingham. Verbena is a restaurant in Stirchley, South Birmingham and it has a special place in my heart. I do all of Verbena's food photography under my personal branding and portrait photography brand, Babb Shoots It. I am also a massive fan of their ethos; they're an all women team, they're passionate about elevating women in the hospitality business. Part of this ethos includes striving to use as many women led, local and small producers as possible. Verbena's food is always amazing too.

As a wedding photographer I shoot all kinds of weddings and I love them all. There's something really magical about a small wedding though. The two of you, the people that you're closest to, and an intimate celebration. Lovely.

An Autumn micro wedding at Verbena

I was commissioned by Verbena to capture the restaurant in all its dressed-for-a-wedding glory. Charlotte and Kevin were also really happy for me to whisk them away for a few portraits against my favourite Stirchley wall! It's such a favourite that I've photographed the Verbena team there. I've also done a portrait session or two, and I've had my own picture taken there too.

The wonderful Hiya Petal created Charlotte's bouquet. I love the beautiful Autumn flowers! Libby creates Verbena's table florals all year round and they change with the seasons. I love the tones of Autumn and they worked perfectly with Charlotte and Kevin's stylish outfits.
