I had the pleasure of meeting up with Anna and Mark for their custard factory engagement shoot.  Check it out in the following link: Custard Factory in the West Midlands.  I had met with Anna several years ago when I photographed her best friend’s wedding at Delbury Hall and also her sister’s wedding at Fishmore Hall.  So I was super excited when she booked me to photograph her big day at Hampton Manor, Solihull.

I arrived half an hour early so I could have a quick look around for some spots for pictures, if you haven’t been to the Custard Factory then do so, with lots of shops ,bars and cafes. Not forgetting the free entertainment out on the streets it’s a really cool place to hang out with friends, with the buildings painted in vibrant colours and lots of street art painted everywhere.  Just such a fantastic location for an urban photo shoot which is completely different to my normal countryside shoot.  So with a quick catch up and of course an introduction to the groom, Mark and his boys who had come along for a bit of practice for the wedding day, we headed out for a walk around the streets of the Custard Factory where the graffiti is incredible, such vibrant colours.  I had two particular shots in mind when I was doing my research.  I really wanted to use a fantastic mural of an octopus but unfortunately it had a car parked in front of it which was waiting to be towed away.

The other piece of graffiti I wanted to use was being resprayed.  Despite these minor disappointments I had a great time on this shoot with Anna and Mark being so relaxed and laid back it made my job in getting some fantastic images really easy. Below are a selection from their Custard Factory engagement shoot.
