REPORTAGE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER BRISTOL: ST GEORGE’S WEDDING

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, Simon proposed to Sue.  They’ve been engaged for so long that we, their friends, feel like they’ve married already for some time!  Saying that, when the big do came around, they technically already were, having tied the knot in a small ceremony the day before.

With the ceremony at 4pm, the day’s timings were pushed back a little later than usual, so I didn’t start with Simon and the boys until after lunch.  I managed to photograph Susie’s beautiful dress while I was there too before heading down to the Royal Marriott Hotel where guests had begun to gather.

I’ve been a Bristolian for most of my life, but hadn’t ever poked my nose into the Lord Mayor’s Chapel on College Green; it’s something of a Tardis and a hidden gem right in the heart of the city.  Apparently Susie & Simon’s blessing was the first time in 200 years that one had been held in candlelight and it looked spectacular.

It was only a short stroll up Park Street to the stairs of St George’s.  For once, I got to dine with the guests, who would all have enjoyed the spread laid on by PapaDeli.  The light was all but done by the time we got there, so it was time to get creative with the couple portraits.

Simon was sufficiently traumatised at the prospect of a first dance that they went for a ceilidh.  Little did he know that he and Susie would lead the first dance anyway.  He coped admirably, of course.

On a personal note, it was lovely to see some old faces again all looking so well and big birthday wishes to Simon who not only got hitched, but turned 40 on the very same day.

Many congratulations Susie and Simon, it was about time xxx
