Kate + Mike | Hotel du Vin + The Custard Factory
Kate + Mike were married on the 18th December at the very funky and quirky Custard Factory , Birmingham. Kate + Mike found me after weeks of trying to find a photographer over the net from where they live in Kuwait and once they stumbled across my site they simply fell in love with the stunning black and whites and booked straight away!
I first met the stunning couple along with Kate’s mom back in August when they were over for a couple of weeks trying to get all the wedding plan’s together and I think it’s safe to say we hit it off straight away.
Having a great rapport with a couple is essential in my eyes, as I truly want everyone to feel comfortable and inclusive on the day, and I think everything went perfectly last Friday – and the photos certainly came out stunningly! Kate + Mike got ready at the devine Hotel du Vin just a short taxi ride away from The Custard Factory.
The old eye hospital is a regular celebrity haunt, with the likes of Lenny Henry staying at the hotel on the weekend of the wedding, and has such character instilled throughout it really is a great venue. However, as Kate and Mike were spending the majority of their day at The Custard Factory it was only a limited area we used on the day – primarily the bedrooms, and that stunning staircase…
Once we got to the Custard Factory the day was absolutely stunning. Everything was exactly the way Kate + Mike wanted it and it could not have been better!
I had a great time sharing their day with them and their family and friends, and the photos are now burning to disc ready for Kate and Mike to pick up today (yes I am still working Christmas Eve!!!) ready to show everyone before heading back to Kuwait on Boxing Day.
I hope you enjoy this slideshow, a more in depth blog post will follow soon.
