The uber lovely Gemma and Tom celebrated their love for each other, firstly tying the knot at the bewitching and magnificent Guildhall, Leicester. This remarkable structure is the one of the best preserved timber framed halls in the country, and dating back 600 years, it’s immense history and uncommon architecture was the idyllic place for Gemma and Tom to hold their wonderful ceremony, with a stunning backdrop alongside music that epitomized the couple’s union, it was a pleasure to capture such happiness.
The bride and groom looked incredible, with Gemma wearing a lovely lace detail gown, finished with a floral headpiece and Tom in his dashing attire, their look evoked a beautiful boho vibe – and with unconventional details such as Gemma’s awesome converse, it was great to see such fun-loving character. After the ceremony, is was fantastic to capture dynamic confetti shots on the lovely cobbled street. They continued their special day with a cool reception at the wonderful Manhattan 34, the perfect venue for this relaxed wedding. With inspiration being a celebration of their relationship and the Leicester city centre, heartfelt, warm and interesting elements evidenced this abundantly. With the surrounding buildings stood on the streets of this vibrant city, it was great to have the contrast of olde-worlde architecture against the contemporary decorative street art that adorned the walls of Leicester, role-playing as the most atypically picturesque setting for this lovely couple’s glorious day.
Sitting amidst the hustle and bustle of this lively city centre is the awesome cocktail bar, Manhattan 34. This venue is styled and inspired by the end of Prohibition in 1934, and their aim is to encapsulate the atmosphere of that time through the bar’s every detail. The Art Deco styling is elegant and unique, matching Gemma and Tom’s excellent taste. Many natural, sincere moments were captured between family and friends and it was great seeing each and every guest having such fun, enjoying the glitter bar and face painting and with lots of exuberant personal touches, the essence of the couple’s character shone through. A wedding filled with individuality, a wholesome, relaxed vibe, and beaming love and happiness. It was truly a pleasure to capture such a beautiful day.
We wish the couple a world of happiness :)
