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.

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!


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.

  7. Amy and Mark May 10th, 2010 at 6:54 pm

    We could­n’t resist tak­ing a look from Grena­da! These are amaz­ing Joseph — thank you so much! We both love the veil shots! Can’t wait to see the rest!

    Love­ly pho­tos Joseph, truly.
