Wedding! Mark and Amy at Priston Mill, Bath.

May 10th, 2010

Thanks for coming and checking out the blog.
I appreciate it.

Right then, Mark and Amy got married a couple of weeks ago! Congratulations guys!

A beautiful couple as you will either soon realise, or you already knew because you're one of their lucky close friends, or you've been good and you're a regular reader of the blog!
Mark is a design engineer at Dyson, a company who have done incredibly well and are now a household name, Amy is a lawyer in the city. Not gonna mess with Amy!
I met with Mark and Amy several months ago, they were on the look out for a photographer and found me on the WPJA website.
I know that when a couple finds me through the WPJA I still need to do my best to sell myself but being associated with that organisation certainly takes out a lot of the hard work. Couples know what standard of images to expect.
I liked Mark and Amy straight away.

They booked me and we arranged a photoshoot in the city. Take a look at the pictures if you've not seen them yet.

When they got married a couple of weeks ago, it was beautiful weather! Infact, it was perfect!

Amy got ready at Conygre Mews in Bath; just 10 minutes drive from Priston Mill.
I was thrilled to find that Amy and her girls were the first bridal party to ever get ready there.
It was a really beautiful cottage lovingly restored and the owners showed their faces too; super nice people! Thank you.

Before you enjoy the pictures (or maybe after, thats your prerogative)...check out the special flipbook of the ceremony that Jessica and myself produced. It's just a bit of fun!

Amazing bouquets by Natalie Anne.
Amy's bridesmaids were brilliant! Well done girls.
Here's the man of the hour with Nicola.
I love shooting people's hands. They really are story tellers!
Disclaimer: This is not the Bride, no. But this little girl was the cutest thing I've ever seen.
Mark's best men keep an eye on him.

Amy's hands are tiny! I really like this picture.
Again with the hands...look at Marks! And notice how Ben, Marks younger brother is keeping an eye on him. 
Amy's Brother was so proud to give her away. 
I'll have to find out the name of the gentleman giving the ceremony, but he was hands down the nicest man for the job.
One of Mark and Amy's friends gave a reading of a slightly adapted version of "A Lovely Love Story" by Edward Monkton. (google it)
Did Mark only just realise how tiny Amy's hands were? I don't know, but I love this picture.
Congratulations!!

Mark and one of his friends practise their secret handshake. Word!
I love me a good veil!
Thanks for being a great bridesmaid Nicola, and for keeping me busy during the wedding breakfast. You are one funny girl!
I'm just going to let you sit and watch this for a moment. Don't leave it too long though, I don't want your screen saver coming on and spoiling the mood.
Mark is a real smiler!

Mark gets some brotherly love!

Speeches!

Oh, this was just disgusting. Apparently, this dirty little creation was taken everywhere on Marks stag holiday. By the look on Mark's face, he doesn't find it as repulsive as what Amy does. Bless.
"You seriously want to name our first-born E.T.?"
Isn't Mark a super handsome groom? And I think Mark will agree with me that Amy looks incredible!
With Mark and Amy's engagement pictures, we put together a guest book, and by the looks of it, it went down very well!

What a wedding!
Thank you so much for choosing me to be with you almost all day. You and your guests made me feel so welcome, I actually felt a little sad leaving.
Enjoy your lives together guys!

    I love the focus on hands, you're so right about them being story tellers.

    What a lovely story told in a very elegant style. I love how much you imbue reportage-it's quit a skill.
    Lovely photos Joseph, truly.
