A Friend’s Wedding in Bristol. Mike & Gabi

November 29th, 2010

Mike and Gabi got married!
They were both a real pleasure to take pictures of from the beginning at Blaise Castle
The pictures, in case you'd not seen them are here;

The ceremony itself was a pleasure to cover. Real emphasis was put on making the marriage strong by making their God come first and by supporting each other and working as a real team. Often I find that church ceremonies aren't personal to the couple which is a real shame as it is such a personal day.
On many occasions, the priest/vicar/officiant has got the couple's name wrong and it's so embarrassing!
To save their own embarrassment, I've often been asked if I know the couples name.
"Sure, I'll tell you if you pay me real good money!"
Of course, there was no shame or mess-ups. Perhaps because my very own brother was best-man. It was very strange having him around, as I'm sure anybody will tell you!

It was a great wedding full of friends, old and new. Many of them previous clients of mine (a term that I hate using) 

Please enjoy the pictures, I know a lot of you have been looking forward to this wedding so if you've seen the pictures, please leave a comment and spread the word!

Thank you as always.

    Great photos Joseph, love the fact that Gabi doesn't let her beautiful dress touch the stinky floor on the graffti photo. Gabi & Mike looked gorgeous, so did the Mother of the Bride, Jan you looked stunning Hun.

    The first portrait picture of the bride and groom (under a bridge?) with the graffiti is next level. Love it.

    I love all of your black and whites - so textured and silver. The image of the couple with the leaves above them is just lovely - I would love to see it huge on a wall.

    Great shot under the bridge. Great leading lines and I bet it looks great in black and white too.
