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.

    Real­ly like the obser­va­tions that you do with each pho­to­graph, every shot is thought about. Good job mate!

    Joseph, Thank you again for cap­tur­ing our day so beau­ti­ful­ly! We enjoyed every sin­gle minute of it and still feel that same enjoy­ment every­time we look at the pho­tographs you took for us. It was a fan­tas­tic and intimite day, with a bril­liant pho­tog­ra­ph­er — need I say more?
    Love, Nic & Chris
