Aldwick Court Wedding Photographer
It’s time to get back into the habit of blogging so what better way to do it than with Toby and Jodie’s wedding from last year where I had the pleasure of capturing the vows at St Theresa’s Church in Filton and being their Aldwick Court Wedding Photographer. Jodie and Toby had assembled a bit of a dream team in my eyes for their wedding, hair and makeup were being looked after by Grace Kingsley, flowers by the talented Emma Norton and styling the reception venue was being taken care of by Kirsten aka The Little Wedding Helper. This was my first time photographing at Aldwick Court but its easy to see why it is a sought after venue, despite being quite a relatively new wedding venue on the outskirts of Bristol, the staff had everything running extremely smoothly and I look forward to a return visit.
I arrived at Jodie’s parents house to start the day capturing some photographs of the bridal preparations just as Grace was getting to work. I like to be able to capture photographs as the preparations are taking place as there’s often a bit of fun and banter going on but it also allows time to photograph details such as the dress, shoes and the flowers.
Jodie had her mum and sister on hand to help with the getting ready and then it was time for the moment that always brings out the emotion when the Father of the bride gets to see his daughter in her wedding dress for the very first time.
Once everyone had regained their composure it was a short drive to St Theresa’s and the small matter of a wedding ceremony.
Following the ceremony the newlyweds jumped into the beautiful Rolls Royce for a drive south of Bristol to Aldwick Court Farm. I was lucky enough to have already paid a visit to this fantastic venue where the delightful gardener had given me a quick tour and even taken me over to see one of the vineyards.
Although on the morning of the wedding the weather was pretty poor to say the least it had brightened up nicely so I was able to capture some photographs of just Toby and Jodie once we had been able to sneak away from the rest of their wedding guests for a short while.
As the evenings entertainment kicked off it was time for the customary first dance, complete with indoor fireworks which as you might be able to tell was a bit of a surprise to Toby!
