Wedding! Rowan and Faye in Bristol.

July 19th, 2010

A few week­ends back I shot the wed­ding of a friend.

Rowan is the broth­er of one of my friends and Faye is the twin sis­ter of one of my pre­vi­ous Brides.
It’s always a plea­sure when friends are will­ing to trust the record­ing of one of the most impor­tant days of their life to me.
No pres­sure or anything!

Rowan and Faye are an incred­i­ble cou­ple. Rowan hon­est­ly has to be one of the coolest guys around. You instant­ly feel relaxed in his company!

They had their cer­e­mo­ny at the King­dom Hall of Jeho­vah’s Wit­ness­es in Bish­opsworth, Bris­tol and then went on to Flax Bour­ton vil­lage hall, just ten min­utes from Bris­tol Airport.
They had great weath­er, in fact it was anoth­er boil­ing hot day! Cock­tails on arrival to the recep­tion were just what the guests needed!

It was great to be shoot­ing a wed­ding with some many friends as guests from all over the country.
Enjoy these pic­tures and leave a com­ment at the bottom.

Good ol’ Mary and Pete! Break­ing their usu­al tra­di­tion of leav­ing 7 kiss­es on a card!

“Joe, don’t you dare show Faye me doing this in this kitchen, she’ll kill me!”

“What’d you say Rowan?”

I always like a lit­tle bit of gueril­la tayloring!

Hey! I took that!

I did­n’t know that tie-tieing was such a seri­ous past time wor­thy of judging!

Not the most steady dri­ve to the cer­e­mo­ny I have to say…!

Such a great smile!

I love Mark’s smile too. Legend

And here comes the Bride.

With no hic­cups and every­body arriv­ing on time all the impor­tant peo­ple walk into the hall. No hic­cups at all. Espe­cial­ly not with front doors.

Faye’s Dad, nat­u­ral­ly was so proud.

Kevin, the speak­er gave a great illus­tra­tion about mar­riage being like a brand new car that needs main­te­nance to stay healthy. Me? I just like toy cars.

One of my favorite pic­tures from the day:

Faye looked per­fect did­n’t she!

I don’t have a clue what’s going on here either.

The imag­i­na­tion of the boys got a lit­tle out of con­trol in this field. Again, I don’t real­ly know what’s going on. I just turned up and shot.

Time for dancing!

Ash­lee is a good friend of mine and is Rowans lit­tle sister!

This was the response when “The Bun­sen Hon­ey Dew Band” played a bit of JLS.
Or…she was doing an impres­sion of me react­ing to the band play­ing JLS.
Who knows!?

Anoth­er famil­iar face!

Imi­ta­tion is the great­est form of flattery!

Awwh! Cute!

…oh my! What sharp teeth you have!

There we go then!

I real­ly enjoyed this wed­ding which prob­a­bly won’t come as much of a sur­prise as you know I  love shoot­ing them!
When a cou­ple are as relaxed and hap­py as these two and have guests who are 1)a ton of fun and 2) pre­vi­ous clients, it’s a recipe for a killer wedding.

Con­grat­u­la­tions Rowan and Faye and Thank you.

    Joe, your pho­tog­ra­phy is amaz­ing! Altough, it’s got­ta be hard to go wrong with a bride as STUNNING as Faye and a groom as HANDSOME as Rowan — okay, okay, so I’m a lit­tle biased, but it’s still true! Fan­tas­tic pics, well done! Sukina.
