Wedding! Joseph and Emma in Clifton, Bristol
June 14th, 2010
I've been really keen to blog this wedding even before I shot it!
Joseph and Emma are a really lovely couple and their wedding was beautiful.
They just ooze personality and their guests and family are no exception at all.
They were married at Clifton Mansion House in Clifton, Bristol.
With the weather on their side, they had the ceremony in the pagoda, then they enjoyed a receiving line over champagne.
Joseph and Emma, along with their guests walked from the mansion house through Clifton, over the world famous Clifton suspension bridge and then went on to enjoy their reception at Burwalls.
The atmosphere on the walk between Clifton Mansion House and Burwalls was fantastic! Cars were tooting their horns, people were shouting their well wishes and so many people just wanted to stop and chat!
It was the first time that I had shot at Burwalls, but I'm so keen to do it there again.
Enjoy these pictures and remember that Jessica has created another flipbook that if you've not seen, head on over here.
Before I forget, here's a little challenge for you; Try to find just one picture of Emma where she's not smiling.
Emma had to be the happiest Bride ever! Thank you Emma, and thank you Joseph for making her so happy.
You did good!
A beautiful setting right in the middle of Clifton!
A few of Joseph and Emma's amazing guests!
Joseph's Nephews were guarding the fort...
Meanwhile, Emma prepared herself with the help of her Bridesmaids.
A few friends gave some personal readings.
Joseph's Dad was a real character! Lovely guy!
And Emma's Dad was also a real character. He was just as much of a smiler as Emma for sure.
The walk to Burwalls began! Such a nice day for it!
Emma shared her favorite view of Clifton Suspension Bridge with a friend!
Next to the Clifton Suspension bridge is this natural slide that has been worn away over the decades by thousands of people sliding down on their Bristolian bums.
I may have exaggerated the angle of the slide but it's all good!
I've done it before and I'll be honest, it's pretty scary! You pick up a lot of speed!
They had four wedding cakes, each cooked by different friends. I thought that was a lovely idea. Joseph created the cake stands himself.
Emma's smile is incredible isn't it?
I'll leave you just looking at this for a while.
Joseph and Emma grew these bluebells in their house especially for the wedding!
And onto the speeches.
Joseph's Best man's speech was great! He gave it in such a relaxed and dry manor. He had everyone in hysterics with his stories of Joseph's earlier days. Brilliant!
The Clifton suspension bridge peering through the trees. I love this picture as I love the bridge!
After teaching this chap all my Jenga tips; he wooed pretty much all the ladies one at a time.
So Joseph and Emma met at ballroom dancing classes, so there was plenty pressure on them for the first dance!
When we met up a few days earlier, Joseph and Emma had explained that to practise their dance, Emma tied a duvet around her to act as her wedding dress!
That's a top tip right there!
I've never seen a conga-line start so quickly! Impressive!
Amazing live music provided by Evolution. I'm recommending them right here, right now.
And that's it!
Joseph and Emma, you're an amazing couple and you're just so happy. It's nice to see such massive smiles all day!
Thank you to the guests for being so welcoming, friendly and accommodating.
