What a wonderful wedding this proved to be!  I was kindly recommended to Eloise and Chris by Eleanor and Anthony whose Somerset wedding I had covered previously.  When I was taking them through some of my work, I actually came across a photo that I had taken of Eloise.  It’s quite charming when these little coincidences take place.

Eloise and Chris had explained that after a Church wedding, they had hired the famous Bristol boat The Matthew which is a replica of the boat in which John Cabot discovered America (I’m no historian, but it seems to be generally accepted that he beat Colombus to it!).  I’ve been lucky enough to have a few weddings which have at least in part taken place on the water and it always provides a wealth of photographic opportunities.  Having witnessed the cannon fire in honour of the wedding, everyone disembarked at The River Station where Michelle and her team looked after everyone admirably.

Ahead of the full post, here are some images from the day…
