After a bit of a hiatus from my blog it's time to get back into the swing of things with Pablo and Kim's wedding and their No4 Clifton Village Wedding reception.I started the day off by heading to the Avon Gorge hotel where Kim was getting ready.  Usually this part of the day can be fairly manic but there was an air of calm in the room while the hair and make-up was being taken care of by Grace.  I took this chance to grab a few shots of some of the details like Kim's stunning bouquet and managed to grab a quick shot of Kim ironing on the day of her wedding!Brides flowers at Avon Gorge HotelBride's dress hanging at Avon Gorge HotelBride getting ready before No4 Clifton Village Wedding reception No4 Clifton Village Wedding reception - Bridal portrait in windowSoon it was time for me to head off to the Bristol Registry Office on Corn Street to get ready for Kim and her father's arrival.Bristol registry office weddingBride arriving for Bristol registry office weddingA quick re-arrangement and it was time to get inside before the rain descended on us.entering the registry office in bristol for a weddingBride walking down the aisle before No4 Clifton Village Wedding receptionWedding guests at Bristol registry officeIt's always nice to be able to capture the reaction of wedding guests as the ceremony is taking place.Bride and groom at Bristol registry officeexchanging the wedding rings at Bristol registry officeGetting married at Bristol registry officeIt's a common instruction from the registrars not to photograph the actual signing of the marriage register so I thought I'd try and get a little creative while Pablo and Kim put pen to paper.  Soon after the marriage was official and it was time for the bridge and groom to run the gauntlet of the confetti throwing.throwing confetti after getting marriedhappy bride and groom at a bristol weddingbride and groom flower details in a bristol wedding photographFrom the registry office everyone jumped into cars and headed up to Clifton to the Rodney Hotel where Pablo & Kim were having their wedding reception at No4 Clifton Village.I really enjoy photographing weddings at No4 Clifton Village as it's a lovely intimate venue with a hidden gem of a walled garden, unfortunately the weather decided to put a stop on the wedding guests being able to make the most of the garden during Pablo and Kim's wedding.For their table's Pablo and Kim had chosen a rustic theme with the table runners and bunting which worked really well with the stripped wooden floorboards and tables of No4.Room decorations at No4 Clifton Village Wedding receptionJust married - No4 Clifton Village Wedding receptionwedding guest book - No4 Clifton Village Wedding reception No4 Clifton Village Wedding reception - rodney hotelBride and groom at a No4 Clifton Village Wedding reception No4 Clifton Village Wedding receptionWhen the rain decided to ease off a little we made a break for it and headed outside for some bride and groom portraits.  The suspension bridge is currently undergoing some repair work so we made out way onto the bridge itself for a few photographs then made our way back through Clifton to the hotel stopping on the way to capture a few more portraits.Bride and groom on the clifton suspension bridge - No4 Clifton Village Wedding receptionwedding portraits - No4 Clifton Village Wedding receptionI have a very relaxed approach to my portraits and try not to make my couples feel overly posed as I want them to feel relaxed in front of the camera.Bride and groom - No4 Clifton Village Wedding receptionBristol wedding photographer - No4 Clifton Village Wedding receptionthe speeches during a No4 Clifton Village Wedding receptionmore speeches - No4 Clifton Village Wedding receptionFollowing the speeches I grabbed a few photographs of the guests enjoying the casino tables that had been setup before leaving Pablo and Kim to enjoy their evening with close friends, a bit of fun poker, music and drinking - what better way is there to end a perfect day.wedding guests playing poker - No4 Clifton Village Wedding reception If you are planning a wedding in Bristol or indeed are having a No4 Clifton Village Wedding reception then please get in touch to discuss me becoming your wedding photographer.
