Lucy and Sean rock ‘n’ roll at bright Birmingham wedding

Wedding: 06/06/2015

Posted by Anna | 25 January, 2016

Bright, clashing colours and a touch of rock ‘n’ roll is the vision Lucy Golder and Sean Slinger had for their quirky modern wedding.

The couple, aged 32 and 35 respectively, shunned tradition for their June 6, 2015 nuptials, attended by 50 guests. “We wanted a wedding that was bright, fresh, bursting with clashing rainbow colours and with a dose of rock n roll,” says Lucy.

“We’re both music lovers and our favourite bands influenced the table decoration and the music that shaped the day,” she adds. “There was nothing too formal or traditional, no pastels and no cutesy bridesmaid dresses.”

Fazeley Studios in Birmingham “let us run wild,” according to Lucy, and created the perfect backdrop for their pair’s vision. “It’s such a great space that doesn’t need too much fussy decoration, it speaks for itself but we added our pops of colour,” she explains. A pom-pom backdrop, bright floral arrangements and ribboned jam jars were just a few touches – handmade by Lucy. “The tables were themed around bands we had been to see together, we used our favourite album in frames for each table,” she says.

Highlight of the day? Sean almost passing out – with love! “Standing together in front of our family and friends was overwhelming; Sean looked like he might pass out,” smiles the bride.

“A beautiful venue in an industrial part of the city centre,” Lucy says of Fazeley Studios.

The groom’s Ted Baker suit was a priority says the bride. “The suit was just as important as the dress — it had to be something a little different!”

“As the dress wasn’t full length I wanted fabulous shoes,” smiles Lucy of the unique floral pumps from Irregular Choice.

Sean [a graphic designer] is so creative and I marvel at how his mind works,” says Lucy. “I need a bit of his crazy and he needs some of my calm.”
