As usual at this time of year I’m a bit behind with my blog. I’m going to try and post a few weddings this week and get back on track! A few weeks back I photographed Becky and Chris’ wedding at one of my favourite venues, Bristol Zoo. Becky and the girls were getting ready at the Marriot Royal when I arrived and they had the fan going full blast as it promised to be a wonderful warm sunny day but pretty hot if you are having your hair dried! Becky had chosen a soft coral colour scheme which looked really pretty and suited all the girls very well. Soon it was time to head over to the zoo, where Chris and the boys were chatting to guests and their wonderful wedding ‘brownie cake’ was being set up.
The ceremony was a mixture of smiles and a few tears as well – weddings are such an emotional day! Becky and Chris looked delighted to tuck into their glasses of Pimms afterwards and I wandered around as guests enjoyed drinks and nibbles. One of the reasons I like photographing weddings at the zoo is because it is so interesting and there are always different animals popping out when you walk around. Becky and Chris went for a walk around to have a look at the animals and to have some pictures together – particularly with some very friendly seals!
Later on, after dinner, everyone enjoyed the speeches and it was time for the hotly anticipated brownie cake. Here are a few of my favourite images:
