Mel & Simon got married. Old Down Manor, Bristol
March 8th, 2012
...or as I like to also call this blog post:
"pictures of some of my nearest and dearest friends"
Melissa and Simon are more than great friends of ours so it was an extra special privilege to cover this wedding for them.
I joined Simon and the boys for a pre wedding grill, followed by general suiting-up and then off to get some marriage.
Melissa and Simon are both Jehovah's witnesses and chose to have their ceremony at the Kingdom hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Thornbury.
The wedding ceremony was taken by the Father of one of my Brides who was also a bridesmaid along with my Jessica.
Melissa and Simon then went on to Old Down Country Park for their reception. This was before it was cool!
They found the cafe a couple of years ago and knew then wanted to have their reception there. It suited them perfectly.
Friend's weddings, as they are, are extra special aren't they? This was no exception with so many magical moments, from the great speeches with their hilariously awkward moments, songs written especially for the day and amazing live music.
If you're a long time reader, You'll probably recognise a few faces on here. Well, when one of your friends is a very handsome and talented wedding photographer it's only natural to want the best!
You'll also notice that there are a few more posed pictures on here than usual. I'm sure you and the WPJA will forgive me just this one time.
You may want to keep an eye on Josephyarrow.com over the next few weeks. There is a huge and well deserved change on it's way.
Enjoy Melissa and Simon's wedding and look out for the example of best photo-bombing ever.
