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.

    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.
