“Ryan was the photographer for our wedding this September. He was extremely professional and we got on with him brilliantly. He made everyone feel very relaxed throughout and fitted in with our guests wonderfully. We got our wedding photos back very quickly and they are beautiful. We couldn’t be happier and would recommend him to anybody.”

Paintworks Event Space in central Bristol isn’t well known for weddings but it certainly should be. I was so grateful to get an email from Sally and George asking me to capture their wedding knowing the location, and then meeting them on the day we just clicked! (pun intended!) 

On the day we were looking at a total wipeout, with rain forecast from the ceremony onwards but thankfully it held off until the evening so we managed to avoid all shots being indoors and getting some fresh air right through until the evening.

The day started like most with a catch up with the bride to be and a walk around the venue. Sally had the help of Charlotte and Megan with her hair and make up and her bridesmaids and parents on hand for all the last minute details. After a few drinks and lots of smiles and nerves, the bride to be was ready to walk the aisle. George had his brother as his best man, stood beside him as Sally walked the aisle in the beautiful urban ceremony room with a gorgeous flower arch by the talented Roots Floral Design. From then on it was a real casual day with minimal structure; with crisps on the table and pizza for dinner; it was exactly how they wanted it, without all the formality and letting everyone enjoy themselves! My favourite part of the day was lying in about 10 puddles getting that perfect rain shot you see above here. Totally worth it off you ask me!

Take a sneaky peek at some of their wedding snaps below from a lovely day with their friends and a family and feel free to leave any comments at the bottom for myself, and the bride and groom to see. I absolutely loved capturing their wedding last October and grabbing some snaps that will be in my portfolio for years to come! Congratulations again you too!

And don’t forget to share the love, and say hello to their suppliers below too. Credit where credits due!
