Coming back to Birmingham always makes us feel at home, especially hanging out in the City Centre where we used to live. Paul & Charlotte’s wedding was such a quirky and quaint affair with their reception taking place at the prestigious Opus.
We were not blessed with the greatest of weather, to the extent that you could hear the rain lashing off the roof of St Francis of Assisi’s Church in Bourneville during the ceremony. The verger graciously allowed us to shoot the group shots inside the church before we headed outside to brave the elements for the confetti shots.
Before arriving at Opus we headed into the Jewellery Quarter for a few snaps around Warstone Lane and St Paul’s Square.
On arrival at the venue we were greeted by a sea of smiling faces which was in no small part due to specially made beers for the day from Paul’s own Birmingham Brewing Co. for guests to enjoy throughout the afternoon. The beer flowed and the live music filled the restaurant with a wonderful inviting ambiance. We sat down for what was without question one of the most epic meals we’ve ever eaten at a wedding which is hardly a surprise considering how highly regarded Opus is in the Birmingham food scene. The speeches followed, including a non-traditional but always appreciated bride’s speech. As day turned into night we took the couple away for a few street portraits bathed in the neon glow of Birmingham’s city centre buildings.
All in all a wonderful day for a deserving and lovely couple. They didn’t let the rain dampen their spirits and rightly so as their day was as perfect a day as you could wish.
