Nikki and Alex got married in September at the unusual Sabrina Boat, which is a quirky triple deck boat in Shrewsbury. They had their ceremony at Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery, which is just a short walk away. It was a beautiful day and even the weather played ball!
Nikki got ready in a quirky Airbnb in Shrewsbury with her bridesmaids and mum, and the atmosphere was so relaxed. The wedding party then walked the short trip to get to the ceremony. With it being a Saturday it was a really busy day in Shrewsbury so loads of people saw Nikki and her bridesmaids on their way to the ceremony. I always love it when couples walk to their ceremony and reception, it’s such a great choice if it’s close by!
Civil Ceremony at Shrewsbury Museum
The ceremony was a legal ceremony in their local town at Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery. Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery is such a quirky place to hold a wedding, it has some amazing pieces of art work which are really cool to use for couple portraits. During the ceremony they had a beautiful reading. It was such a lovely service and so emotional. My favourite part of the ceremony was straight after the kiss when Nikki had a little tear of happiness. I always love photographing happy tears on wedding days!
Sabrina Boat Reception
The reception was on two floors on at The Sabrina Boat. They chose the venue because it’s really quirky and they just fell in love with it. It was a n intimate wedding, which I really love photographing. The Sabrina Boat was the perfect setting for this too, as all the guests are quite close together on the boat. I love shooting Sabrina Boat weddings because they’re always really unique. Most of the guests are on the top floor of the boat for the majority of the reception and the evening party happens on the lower deck. It’s best suited for more intimate weddings.
They had drinks and canapes in the afternoon, and a fireworks display in the evening. The fireworks display really topped off an amazing day.It looked amazing from the Sabrina Boat above the River Severn. Nikki and Alex kept it as a surprise for their guests as well which was brilliant, it was so nice seeing everyone’s reactions.
For dinner they had proper wedding grub, which was loved by all the guests. Having food on a boat is a real treat, it’s so unusual but the food was still amazing! The first dance involved the wedding party getting on the dancefloor to get the dancing going, and they finished off the evening with fireworks.
The most memorable part of the day was when we did their couple portraits in the Quarry Park in Shrewsbury, because it was so romantic and personal. This was such a good place for us to take their portraits as it was on the way to the Sabrina.
Nikki wore a Rita Mae wedding dress and Alex wore a Moss bros suit and they looked so incredible. Nikki’s flowers were lovely, sunflowers are the happiest flowers in my opinion and they really suited Nikki’s personality and Alex’s suit was green tweed which looked amazing and really went with the quirky theme of their day.
Nikki and Alex’s wedding was totally epic and had such a chilled vibe. Here’s their awesome Sabrina Boat wedding!
