After photographing Safrana and Marco’s New York Engagement Session, I was beyond excited to see what ideas they had for their church wedding in Leicester, England. They didn’t disappoint. Safrana and Marco had a Muslim wedding ceremony followed by a reception in this old former church hall, St. Barnabas in Leciester. The setting was beautiful. Safrana’s niece and nephews were in charge of welcoming guests as they arrived.
I love that Safrana thought to add small details to outside of the church.
Loved that Safrana & Marco created their own unique hashtag for Instagram for their guests to use on Instagram so that they could easily see any pictures guests had uploaded to Instagram.
I equally love that Safrana used this old mirror as a table plan by writing guests’ names on the mirror.
Instead of a postbox, Safrana very creatively decided to have a vintage suitcase draped in lace at the entrance table for guests to put their cards in.
Cake stands, lace table cloth, cute tea cups… check, check, check…
Safrana you look stunning!
For the centre pieces, the bride and groom went for something a bit more unsual, old classic novels with doilies and old glass jars filled with roses. Each table was also marked with a luggage label which Safrana wrote out herself. Glass water bottles with old fashioned stoppers also graced each table.
Venue: St. Barnabas Church, Leicester
