Wedding Photography Bristol – Helen & Wayne, The journey begins.
Here I am driving towards Bristol, millions of memories to remind me how much I miss this city and the places I’ve been so many times…I’m driving in one of those gift day where the sky is so blue and the weather so perfect that just a day like this could be for the wedding of Helen and Wayne. Going to the bride house you never know what you can expect: everybody going crazy, or over excited or in need of advises- do I look good? – or just sometimes the most un expected silence with the bride ready even before I get there. It’s always a surprise!! I drive on top of the hill and Dave and Helen are both coming with a smile to open the gate for me! Finally I meet Helen, she’s been so kind with me and worry the last few weeks- exactly like me for my wedding ;)- and now I’m glad I’m here with her to enjoy the morning with her family and her bridesmaids.
Everybody is getting ready- hair for Leanne, then Jo and make up for Chelsea the three lovely bridesmaids, more relaxed Matt, Helen’s brother, that is trying to hide form the camera and enjoy the sunny morning! Sue offers me a coffee and she asks me to make sure I will hide her crutches in the pictures- I say I will do as better as I can!!! Dave is going out to get everybody sausage and bacon rolls to keep energies up for the day! I sit with Helen and go through the timing of the day and then she shows me that beautiful classy handmade dress which will then look perfect on her. The girls are very nice, everybody is slowly getting ready and excited. Helen does her make up at perfection and her beautiful blue eyes with long lashes stand out completely from the first picture! The bridesmaids look amazing in their gold long dresses and they all have hair up and a necklace, bracelet and hearings that Helen got them as present.
After I took some nice shots of Helen and her families and friends in the back garden I drive towards St Peters Church in Bishopsworth. There I met Wayne and the best man Billy, the ushers Dan, Matt and Adam. Wayne looks a little nervous, he smiles and welcome the guests arriving; I took some nice shots of the guys all together and some of the groom and his best man and then with his family.
Time for everybody to get inside the church and wait for the bride: and here she is with the veil over her face and holding her dad harm. The ceremony goes on and Helen and Wayne are both very happy and so much in love with each other- I love weddings- always always feel tears coming up into my eyes….After we have family pictures and confetti the Just married couple leave first with me right back to go celebrate at Winford Manor Hotel.
The hotel is just perfect for the day, warm and sunny while the guest are having a drink we take some lovely shots around the garden, in the labyrint and by the stunning window by the staircase- amazing:) Helen and Wayne are having a marquee elegantly decorated and they still don’t know they will have a big and pleasant surprise: the Soprano Bella- the singing waiters- nobody was expecting that the waitress that was part of the catering turned out to be a great soprano singer?! That was the present from David, Helen’s dad for her and her groom. Everybody was shocked at the beginning then everybody started be part of it and singing and dancing and it was a big success!! I really enjoyed being there as I felt like part of the unforgettable day of Helen and Wayne, I’m just so glad I sometimes happen to meet such special people and share with them the deep joy of their wedding day. It had been an honour for me to be part of one of the most beautiful day of the story of Helen and Wayne…
