On Saturday I joined Amy and Grant to photograph their big day at Berwick Lodge near Bristol.
Berwick Lodge is a beautiful venue that feels as if it is tucked away in the countryside amongst trees and gorgeous statue, but is actually very accessible being close to the M5 and with its stunning grounds and luxurious rooms, it is the perfect exclusive location for a wedding!
The day itself was full of sunshine despite the forecast threatening showers all day. When I arrived all the final preparations were being added to the ceremony room and Berwick Lodges very impressive dining room.
Kathryn of ‘Plain Jayne’ was busily putting the finishing touches to Amy’s makeup. While I photographed all the details like Amy’s amazing shoes. The shoes were called ‘Flo’ which was Amy’s Grandmothers name and so held special significance for her. They were very vintage inspired and had some amazing details and were some of the most gorgeous wedding shoes I have seen!
Amy arrived at the ceremony accompanied by her Dad – Garry, looking radiant. There were lots of giggles as the registrar muddled up Amy’s name with Emily, but it helped to relax the Bride and Groom and any nerves seems to disappear.
Afterwards confetti was thrown and family groups were gathered to be photographed before I took Amy and Grant away for some romantic shots around the Gardens. This is one of my favourites from the day. The spring lighting was just stunning and the wind caught Amys veil at just the right time!
The wedding couple decided on having the speeches before the meal so that all the speakers could relax with all the formalities being taken care of.
I left the party in full swing just after taking some dancing shots. Only to realise that my battery in my car had gone flat, however I was kindly assisted by a group of lovely wedding guests and the Groom and managed to get back on the road really quickly! Especially as the RAC had quoted a 3hr wait!
A big thank you to Grant and Amy for being an amazing couple to work with!
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Dale!
