Wow what a wedding. Back in Bristol now recovering from the epic rainyness which was Nat and Gez’s wedding. Going to take a slightly different tak this week. Holly (my wife) was actually maid of honour so I’m going to hand over the reins to her…
I’ll admit it, I tend to be a sobber at weddings – even when I’ve assisted Alex on the weddings of people I’ve never met before, I find myself welling up. So you can imagine how much I cried at the wedding of two of my closest and dearest friends. From the beautiful reading (about two dinosaurs!), to the fantastic speeches and finally the first dance to the Pulp Fiction soundtrack, where Gez surprised Natalie by breaking out some lindy hop moves he’d been learning in secret for the past 6 months. Yep, I was a wreck.
We may not have had the best weather, but that didn’t spoil the day one bit. South Farm is a beautiful venue and the couple had put so much thought into the little details that made the wedding very ‘them’. There was an Easter egg hunt, a fun questionnaire to answer at dinner, and beautiful hand made favours (bird seed feeders in the shape of hearts).
There are so many happy memories I’m going to take away from Nat and Gez’s wedding – it was a day of pure joy. And (although I admit I’m biased) I reckon Alex has managed to capture that feeling in his photos!
More soon, although probably from Me not Holly this time!
ps. special thanks go out once again to Tom Archer for helping out second shooting. I think I really do have competition these days!
