Olivier Burnside Wedding PhotographyReportage Wedding Photographer Bristol: Ria & Will’s Ashton Court Hindu Wedding

I was recommended to Ria by Terrie, whose SS Great Britain Wedding to Kyle I had covered last year (it’s here if you fancy another blogged wedding!).  Ria explained that her wedding to Will would actually be two in one, with a Hindu ceremony to follow a traditional white dress affair.  I couldn’t wait!

I first met Ria and Will for a pre-wedding shoot at Ashton Court.  I don’t ordinarily do both sets of images at the venue, but it’s huge, so felt that it was ok to make an exception.  As is often the case, they were keen to let me know that they were a little apprehensive about being in front of the camera, but they soon got used to it and this has to be one of my all-time favourite pre-wedding images :)

I spent the morning with Ria, her mum, sister Rima and bridesmaids Bethan and Haley.  Their preparations were in the capable hands of Jackie from Jax-Glam Beauty.  Everyone was very easy company and it was nice too to see a print taken from one the pre-wedding images that Ria had given Will at Christmas!  Thankfully, the morning also passed without Rima’s imminent arrival making an appearance and we were soon on our way to Ashton Court for ceremony number 1!

I spoke to the celebrant prior to the second ceremony and he was warm and reassuringly laid back about it all.  I joined a beaming Ria for the final stage of her preparations and she looked amazing.  Will didn’t look too shabby either.  I have to admit to not having fully understood the significance of all aspects of the ceremony, but it made for a fascinating watch.

It was the first time that I’d photographed a wedding at Ashton Court and I was pleasantly surprised by the number of opportunities there are for great images.  The site is large and occupies a position from which there are far-reaching views of Bristol.  Ria and Will really made the most of the opportunities we had and I think we got some great images as a result.

There had been some noises earlier in the day about Ria’s brother Basar performing his notorious party tricky during the speeches.  He didn’t disappoint; even if him downing a pint of something dark in quick time drew a mixed response from those on the top table…

Ria and Will, thank you for choosing me to be your photographer, I enjoyed every minute!
