Love is not cancelled – Lockdown love stories

Lockdown Love…

Zoe and Christian had planned a June 2020 wedding, which sadly was postponed due to the lockdown. Like many couples who have chose 2020 for their wedding year, they had to make the decision whether to move it to a later date when all their friends and family could attend, or wait until lockdown was lifted and have an intimate ceremony instead. They decided to go ahead with the later.

Their wedding photographer Stephanie Butt reached out to them and suggested a social distancing photo shoot to celebrate and mark their original wedding date. So off the three of them went to wonder the empty streets of Digbeth in Birmingham. I love the photos of them dancing in the empty graffiti streets; embracing in the rain and laughing under clouds of rainbow confetti!

Today we chat with them about how they felt about lockdown, how they made changes to their original wedding plans and what they learnt about the experience…

Zoe & Christian…

Monica Anoz…

We wanted to achieve a bold style, with grunge touches, lots of leather, and vintage elements, such as Gucci pearl shoes, grid t-shirts, jewellery, cowboy boots and black sunglasses. However, we wanted to keep the classic touches like silk, embroidery, and exquisite fabrics to the touch and sight.

This is all about creating your own careless mischievous bridal style! We love the look of the collection against the Barcelona back streets and the contrast of the magnificent Hotel Melia of Barcelona.

We love the combination of wedding dresses and the classical fashion pieces such as Gucci shoes or The Kooples leather jacket. We also love the photos taken in the Hotel Meliá because it’s a fabulous and exquisite place.
