Unique Wedding Styling at a Fazeley Studios Wedding

A Fazeley Studios Wedding To Remember

Bride and groom portrait at their wedding in a green corridor with a mirrorWhen I am photographing a wedding, there are different things that make it memorable for me, and for Niki & Andy’s Fazeley Studios wedding the one word that springs to mind is; style.  My connection to Niki and Andy is through Fazeley Studios – I share Andy’s office in Studio 30, but we also had another connection with their wedding; they had asked the very lovely and talented AVA Event Styling to dress and style the wedding venue.  I have worked with AVA many times now, and I know they always come up with the most creative styling (plus they are just lovely, lovely people).

Fazeley Studios is based in Digbeth, a creative heart in Birmingham.  Companies across the West Midlands have grouped together in the area, where old industry has given way to new creativity.  My office is there at Fazeley Studios, and I know many other businesses in the area (at the Custard Factory, Zellig, The Bond etc).  For me the best thing about being based in this part of Birmingham is that it is just so vibrant, and so visually interesting.  Fazeley Studios, for example, is such a pleasant surprise when you walk through the door – when I meet clients there in the main reception area their first reaction is ‘wow – I wasn’t expecting that!’.

With AVA Event Styling given free reign on the wedding venue, that Wow reaction was multiplied x 100.  They had done an amazing job.  Their theme was ‘bohemian circus’ and they didn’t hold back.  Both Niki and Andy are creative people, and between them and AVA, they created something really special.  The overall effect was stunning, and the attention to detail was incredible.  Special mention should also go to The Couture Company who made Niki’s beautiful dress – it really did look incredible.

The ceremony and the wedding reception were both held at Fazeley Studios.  They had a small and intimate service, followed by the wedding breakfast for the guests, before the evening guests arrive.  The great thing about this wedding venue is that it has several areas, which can be used very creatively – you can have 20 people and it will not feel empty, or 200 people and it will not feel crowded.

If you are getting married at Fazeley Studios, or at any of the other amazing Digbeth wedding venues, just drop me a line.

To be honest, it is much easier to show you Niki and Andy’s wedding, so here it is:

As a photographer, I genuinely enjoy the process of taking photos – the interaction, creativity and happy clients keep me enthusiastic and innovative. Many people find it awkward having their photograph taken – I use my experience to put people at ease so that I can get the most out of them, often in a short period of time.

Over the years I have been a professional photograph, I have won both regional and national awards, and I have been awarded an LMPA from the Master Photographers Association.
