Mandie & Matt's wedding at the Avon Gorge Hotel
Mandie and Matt's wedding took place in my old home town of Portishead in North Somerset at St. Peters Church on the High Street. At the time i lived literally just over the road!
I started the day with the bride and bridesmaids as they prepared for the wedding day, I always love bridal prep photography, it gives me a chance to warm up and get into the flow of the day as well as have a little fun and get some beautiful photographs. This day was no exception, the girls were is good spirit and full of fun.
Mandie was collected and driven to the church in an old style vw camper van complete with picnic basket and some nicely chilled cans of cider.
The couple had been married in Cypress a couple of weeks earlier but of course not all their friends and family could be there, even though this was not going to be just a formality and it was as much their wedding day as it should be with the only difference that the groom was there to greet his bride outside the church.
this gave me a great opportunity to capture his look as Mandie walked along the path towards him in a wedding dress he wasn't expecting to see.
The wedding service at St. Peters was lovely and the church was bright and cheerful. We photographed the groups in the church grounds quickly before the newly weds departed for the Avon Gorge Hotel.
The Avon Gorge is a very well known and beautiful venue in Clifton, Bristol and has stunning views of the Avon, the gorge and the world famous Clifton suspension bridge by Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
When we arrived there was a hog roast simmering away wafting a mouth watering scent in the air and i think my stomach instantly growled but i had photographs to take. Their guest were full of fun and it was a fantastic evening climaxing with a beautiful firework display over the gorge.
Mandie & Matt are in the process of starting a new life in Australia, i wish you both a very happy and long life together and that you for choosing us as your wedding photographers for this amazing fun filled day x
