Bristol Wedding Photographer. Glassboat Restaurant

December 4th, 2011

So as promised, Chris and Nicolette's wedding.
A very intimate affair, in fact it was one of my smallest at that time. They weddings really are a load of fun, nothing lacks.
A smaller wedding party has its good points and bad points for me;
People tend to stick together rather than wander off like they do in big castle venues... (good)
But, you tend to stick out more because everybody knows that you're the wedding photographer only because you're not family...and I don't wear a fascinator. (bad, followed by good)
I however felt totally comfortable during their ever-so relaxed day.
Chris and Nicolette got married at the Bristol Registry Office in one of my favourite parts of the city, and then on to the reception for drinks and singing at the Glassboat Restaurant. Nic and Chris drove, I walked. That's how close it was. 5 minutes at most. Perfect.
The restaurant was a great spot for a wedding reception. A well stocked bar, right in the middle of the city but something a little bit different from a hotel. Very classic. Also, it was a boat!
So many nice moments from this wedding and after selecting the final set of images for this post, only now am I aware of my obsession of pictures of people taking pictures.

Please, just promise not to count them!
Enjoy and spread the word.
