I photographed this next wedding at Old Down Manor on the edge of Bristol. You can see more photographs of this wonderful wedding venue and many more in my Bristol Venue guide. I started my day with photographs of both the Bride and groom getting ready which was shortly followed by the arrival of the wedding guests. The wedding was delayed as one of the Nans had got lost on her way to the venue. Luckily she turned up just in time and the wedding started only 15 minutes late. I know Marcus’s Nan would have appreciated us waiting for her as she would have been upset to have missed the service.
Paula and Marcus’s wedding
After the ceremony, we all made our way outside for some drinks. This was a great opportunity for me to photograph all the excitement as the happy couple were congratulated by their friends and family. Once everyone had the chance to great the happy couple we moved onto the group photographs.
The wedding Photographs
As you can see from these images, Old Down Manor is a beautiful place for wedding photography. We made our way around the grounds to capture some very special moments for Paula and Marcus. Having show the happy couple a selection of their wedding photographs on my Ipad later in the day. I know Paula and Marcus are delighted with what we captured.
After enjoying a wonderful meal the guests made their way back outside. It was turning into a lovely summers evening. This gave me the opportunity to grab some more reportage photographs before the first dance. After photographing more of the party on the dance floor is was soon time for me to make my way and get ready for my next wedding the following day.
Time for one more
After packing up and saying my goodbyes I notice the sky was getting interesting. All day it had been flat white and a little uninteresting but as I went to leave this all changed. So to the amazement of Paula and Marcus, I got my camera equipment back out to grab the special shots you can see here. Going that extra step is one of the many reasons so many couples continue to recommend me as a wedding photographer. I had a great time at Paula and Marcus’s wedding. I hope to see them again at someone else special day.
