Love Is Not Cancelled
You know that, here at Save the Date HQ, we love something a little different; when a couple push the norm and make their wedding day super stylish and extra unique. Well, didn’t Sian and Conor absolutely smash it in their Covid19 era mini wedding?
Starting the day with bridal prep at Staying Cool At Rotunda, a collection of gorgeously chic serviced apartments, in Birmingham city centre with Zoe, Worcester on hair duties and Stacey Peplow on makeup. Sian still managed to enjoy the luxury of being preened and polished around the current restrictions and walked out with that true bridal glow. The ceremony was held at Fazeley Studios in Digbeth, Birmingham, a former Unitarian Church now a stunning wedding venue in the heart of Birmingham’s creative quarter. Dressed with simple greenery and geometric lanterns letting the most amazing florals shine – Sian’s bouquet of neon multicolour was a total showstopper! What a cool backdrop for saying your “I dos”… After the ceremony, with photographer Simon Brettell in tow, the couple hit the graffiti clad streets around The Custard Factory for some pretty cool portraits. Then it was back to the bride and groom’s house for the wedding breakfast and evening reception with entertainment provided by The Medley Boys who kept the dancefloor rocking until the early hours with plenty of fun and funky music. This fun, relaxed wedding with the bride and groom’s closest friends and family is giving us all the feels and confirms that, even during a global pandemic, love is not cancelled!
Stylist for the day, Charlotte from Fine & Dandy, says “Sian & Conor had a clear vision for their big day… ‘Love is not Cancelled’ and although their guest list needed to be scaled back, they still wanted their day to be the best day ever, whilst being vibrant and fun-filled. The styling of the ceremony was kept timeless and elegant with classic ivory chiffon dressed chairs while the aisle was lined with eucalyptus and terrarium candlelight. The focal point was the ceremony table which was styled with a beautifully bold wild floral meadow. A ‘Best Day Ever’ pink neon sign took centre stage in the marquee reception, adorned with trailing foliage and glitter balls, it was the perfect fun photo backdrop for guests to enjoy. The neon theme also continued within all of their on-the-day stationery and signs. In order to bring the outdoors in, floor-standing and table-top ruscus trees were styled within the marquee, along with foliage festooning. The tables shone in beauty with an array of gold candlelight and terrariums, and crisp white linen, which added a real sense of romance. Whist the vast display of bright, neon florals added an injection of colour pops, warmth and personality.”
