The Wedding for
Michael and Vivene

A Birmingham City Wedding for Michael and Vivene

A Birmingham city wedding was the order of the day, for Michael and Vivene in the summer.   After several decades together, they both made it official taking their vows at their local church in Smethwick.  It was obvious to all how happy this made them and their family and friends.   It was a really vibrant affair!

Vivene and her bridesmaids started off getting ready at the Ibis Hagley Road.  The morning was full of excitement and lots of activity between the rooms.  We knew we were coming back to the hotel later in the day and as we passed through the venue room on the way to the ceremony, there was just a hint of what was to come.  Nerves took hold and tears welled up as the bride arrived outside the church and was greeted by her sons.  The Ceremony, however, was relaxed and joyous.  Very soon the new bride and groom were laughing and dancing their way out as man and wife.

Birmingham City Wedding Photographs at Lightwoods Park

Photographs were at Lightwoods Park and the little garden there allowed for some informal portraits.  The garden there is lovely and I have noticed that shooting at various times of the day the differing light gives a variety of moods. On this day, the time we were there it was bright, so I moved the couple around as quickly as possible to accommodate the intense sun.  Group shots were outside the garden, and these went well before we headed back to the Ibis Hagley Road for the wedding breakfast.

It’s been a while since I have seen a game of Mr and Mrs at a wedding! But we were treated to an episode after the speeches and it did not disappoint! The reception here continued the feel of high energy, lots of laughter, plenty of dancing, and some great on-the-floor shots.  As stated this was a vibrant Birmingham city wedding for Michael and Vivene! One for all their loved ones to remember!  Enjoy the video!
