I originally met Sarah and Ian on my stall at a wedding event in 2014. We got chatting and they were keen to find out more about me and my photography services. With a follow up meeting in the Tobacco Factory they loved my work and decided they wanted me to photograph their special day.
In true British fashion the day before was raining cats and dogs but fortunately that cleared to reveal bright blue skies on their day.
Their wedding was held at St. Mary the Virgin Church in Leigh Woods. The happy bride was greeted by a calm groom along with a packed church of friends and family members.
The happy couple choose the picturesque Leigh Court to hold their wedding reception. Built in 1814 with traditional 19th century ornate features, grand double staircase and Bath stone Palladian exterior (a darn posh well impressive style of architecture) it provides a stunning backdrop for creating beautiful wedding photos.
Sarah and Ian planned one of the most action packed first dances I’ve ever photographed including energetic drumming from Bristol Samba and carnival style dancing from the Sambazinhas. The dance started outdoors in the grand entrance to Leigh Court and then proceeded through the building into the Great Hall with a carnival atmosphere. Guests were then lead out to the rear of the venue were they where encouraged to join in the samba dancing.
If you like what you see please get in touch with me (Simon) and we can organise a time for a casual chat about your big day.
Thanks again to Sarah and Ian for choosing me to photograph their action packed fun filled wedding day!
