The fact that Souxzi was able to organize this stunning, stylish wedding in three months (while also grieving her mother's recent passing) is totally mind-boggling and is a sharp ruler on the knuckles of anyone who says you can't plan a wedding in less than six months. Congratulations, Souxzi!
Really, you must check out the entire set of photos from Sam and Julia's wedding. Thanks to Closed Circle Photography for the shot!

It seemed like the perfect venue for us as we are both creative types and the mouldy ceilings and large concrete girders were suitably unweddingy enough for our tastes!
