Bristol Wedding Photographer in the West Midlands

Whenever an enquiry comes through from a prospective bride looking to book you as their Bristol Wedding Photographer it's always an exciting time.  Who is she?, Where is she getting married? Is there a theme to the wedding day? Or have you photographed any of their friends weddings previously? Well when the enquiry came through from Jess it came with a strange kind of feeling attached.  After looking at the email address closely and following it up with a quick google it did actually appear that the Showbiz Editor of the Daily Star had just contacted me....

It was slightly bizarre as to how she found me but a big part of it came down to Jess wanting a photobooth style setup to play a part of her day as well as the standard wedding photographs and knowing I'm a fan of a photobooth she had been pointed in my direction.  When we finally met up on the Jess and Jimmy's pre-wedding photoshoot it was obvious what a great couple they were and how much fun their wedding day was going to be.

So here we go, I've finally got round to blogging one of my favourite weddings from last year just after it has been featured in Wedding Ideas magazine.

Despite living in London Jess and Jimmy had decided to get married where they grew up in Hockley Heath in the West Midlands.  The service itself took place at St Thomas Church in Hockley Heath with the reception to follow in the garden of Jess' parents house.

As the ceremony took place the flower girl decided she would have a little stroll along the church aisle without a care in the world, until the photographer decided to take her photograph!

I've never been a huge fan of bossing couples about on their wedding day, it's simply not my style as their is simply too much going on that it would be a shame not to capture.  You simply couldn't force the love and emotion like the shot below into a staged photograph.

While the guest made their way back to the reception Jess & Jimmy took a short drive down the lanes to where we found this little spot for a few casual but intimate photographs.Bristol Wedding Photographer in West Midlands (22)

I love being able to capture the emotion of the wedding day and there is so much of it during the speeches.   The tears, the laughs and the cheers, it's all there and a pleasure to be a part of.
