Today I am excited to share this super colourful & fun Birmingham Wedding with Rainbows, Flamingos, Pineapples and Unicorns at Fazeley Studios.
Images were captured by The Dignums.
The Dignums are a husband/husband team of two fun and friendly wedding photographers, based in Wolverhampton.
They shoot all over the Midlands, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, and beyond.
Their work is colourful, expressive, moment driven, and a little bit different.
If you want two guys photographing your wedding day who feel like a couple of mates, chatting to your guests, and busting some moves on the dance floor, all the while taking amazing photos that show the awesome couple that you two are, and what an amazing wedding day you had, then there’s a strong chance they’re the right wedding photographers for you!
They say of the couple and their Birmingham Wedding day…
Yep, you read that right. Rainbows. Flamingos. Pineapples. Unicorns. And that, it turned out was just for starters. One of Katherine’s guiding principles is “If it’s not weird, I’m not interested” – you’ll see why that motto is so special later!
The Birmingham Wedding venue for all this wonderful weirdness was Fazeley Studios in Digbeth.
In the past it’s been a chapel, and even a warehouse, but it’s been converted into an amazing light-flooded ceremony and celebration space.
Katherine had chosen a special treat for a location for her bridal preparations. She got ready with family and friends in the penthouse suite of the iconic Birmingham landmark the Rotunda!
While that morning being quite rainy meant that the views out over central Brum were quite grey, this was more than compensated for by all the colour and sunshine that Katherine, family and friends had brought inside with them.
I joined groom-to-be Rob with some of his close friends for a quick pre-ceremony pint at The Ruin, a great little pub just around the corner from Fazeley Studios.
The rain cleared thankfully for us to make the short walk across to the venue.
The studios had been wonderfully decorated with rainbow ribbons and big white helium balloons
Katherine walked up this colourful aisle accompanied by her dad, following the beautiful and enthusiastic bridesmaids, Cami, Alex, and Isabella.
The ceremony was led by an absolutely amazing registrar, with lots of laughs, and maybe just a couple of tears too.
Then it was time for Mr and Mrs Thomas to walk back down the aisle to a cacophony of confetti cannons!
The reception tables where all a riot of rainbow colours and unicorn and flamingo accessories.
As a special surprise, Phil and i had organised Unicorn Bingo for all the guests to play after the speeches.
This involved one poor guest having to wear a terrifying unicorn head and special sash, as he the picked numbered balls from an inflatable pool. Every wedding needs some Unicorn Bingo!
It was then time for the evening celebrations, and a Queen tribute band led by a very convincing Freddie Mercury!
There were stick-on moustached laid on for everyone to help them join in with the classic rock on a particularly wild dance floor.
We spirited Katherine and Rob outside for a quick bit of PixelStick rainbow light painting, before returning them to the floor to dance the night away!
