Dave & Jen got Married at Bristol Marriott Royal
March 15th, 2011
In many ways, this was a totally average and normal wedding for me.
A great looking couple.
A beautiful venue.
Guests who laughed all day.
Harry Potter jokes directed at me within 10 minutes of me starting my day and not finishing until I was packing up and walking out the door.
Like I said, all very normal.
It's a little worrying now that I actually answer to the name Harry. (If you've met me, you'll know that I'm ever so handsome and I wear glasses. That's about the limit of our similarities)
I'm a little bit of an attention seeker so I actually quite enjoy the constant teasing. Good times!
As well as being an attention seeker, I think it'd be safe to call myself a little naughty. Not crude, just mischievous. However, I met my mischievous match with Jen's two bridesmaids.
Naughtiest. Bridesmaids. Ever.
Constantly photobombing what are supposed to be the most important pictures in Dave and Jen's life. Very bad.
I met up with Dave and Jen before the wedding just to confirm a couple of things. Everything seemed to be in perfect order, that made me happy.
What made me smile is that Jen expressed a desire for something, anything to go wrong on her day. Everything seemed to be going so smooth that just the slightest bit of drama would of added a sense of normality to their day. I liked that!
Dave and Jen chose the Bristol Marriott Royal for their ceremony and reception. If you know Bristol, you'll know this building, sitting at the bottom of Bristol's Park Street, home to my favourite coffee shop and Banksy artwork. The hotel stands with a buxom bronze Queen Victoria outside keeping the draft out.
I had never been inside before, but I loved it. I can't wait to shoot there again. It really was a pleasure.
So, congratulations Dave and Jen, you're both incredible. You deserve each other. Enjoy your life together.
