Annie & Simon, Bristol
My last wedding of the year was on 10th December for the lovely Anne and Simon. This was always going to be a wedding that was great for shooting opportunities. Hotel du Vin in Bristol is a classy boutique hotel, but when added with a Red London Bus as transport to/from the Church and some perfectly timed snow flurries, we were on to a winner.
Each section of the day was, despite the arctic conditions, warm, happy and fun. Anne and Simon have a great strong and loving family around them and it was a pleasure to be plonked in the middle of this lovely lot for the day.
The Vicar Rod was concerned with there not being enough space for either me or the videographer to be down near our couple so we were banished to the heavens (the first floor). Frustrating, but understandable (I guess).
On exit from the Church the snow started again right on cue, to give us a natural/synthetic confetti combo!
Another hilarious journey back to Hotel du Vin on our trusty bus got us back in one piece, just about and the day continued it's course. The staff at Hotel du Vin were on point as always and the day developed into a relaxed event, with roaring log-fires and lots of cava. Three of the staff turned out to be Singing Waiters and did their duty perfectly; getting the crowd active and dancing and really engaged. Brilliant!!
Here is a selection of my favourite pictures, which tell the story of the day.... Enjoy!
