Ashton Court · Colston Hall · Old Down Manor · Bristol Pavillion · Winford Manor

Back in 2009, Bristol was hailed by the BBC as ‘the best city to live in in the UK’ and it’s not surprising therefore that so many couples choose Bristol as their place to get married. Bristol is able to offer real variety when it comes to the types of venue on offer including traditional country house locations, castles and fortresses, barns, art galleries; even boats as possible choices. As a Bristol wedding photographer, I do like variety and Bristol does not disappoint.

High on my recommended list is Ashton Court Mansion, Bristol’s most popular wedding venue occupying a vast scenic estate just one mile outside the city centre. And if it’s a really big wedding you are planning, Ashton Court can be themed and hired out exclusively for up to 750 guests!

Smaller, boutique style venues are becoming increasingly popular for those not wishing to have a full whistles and bells occasion, instead opting for a more intimate affair with the emphasis on quality and style above sheer size.

If this is you, then the Square Club in the heart of historic Clifton should certainly be on your venue wish list.

The Square, with its beautiful paintings, art deco styling and exposed brickwork offers a blank canvas to those wishing to book their wedding there, allowing for the venue to be transformed in to their own theme for a perfectly unique wedding.

But for something unique that only Bristol can offer, Brunel’s SS moored in Bristol’s harbourside is a captivating choice. Brunel’s SS was the first Ocean liner although it now resides in far more sedate surroundings in the heart of Bristol and offers a memorable alternative to more traditional (land based) wedding venue.

My style of photography is not only to observe, waiting for ‘the shot’  but also, when the moment presents itself, to get in amongst people and to orchestrate, even help the picture along. There is no magic formula to getting great wedding pictures but what I do is try to get people on my side, relax them so that I’m not seen as ‘the wedding photographer’ but as someone just trying to take a nice picture. This way, expressions are, fun, natural, engaging and real.

Hopefully, you’ll view my gallery and my pictures will do the talking for me! If they do then I’d be delighted to hear from you.
