Lucy and Gareth – Wedding Photography at The Beeches, Brislington

Before I say anything about the wonderful day that was the 9th April, I must mention the Groom’s mum Sue. Sue was an absolute trooper in the lead up to the wedding. An almost one woman band she created the gorgeous hairpiece that the bride wore. It could easily rival some of the most expensive bespoke creations that I see. She painted horseshoes that were decorated with paper flowers. Felt hearts were handstitched and miles of bunting had been made. Hand painted G & L wooden letters adorned the mantlepiece. handmade confetti cones, made from pages from books were ready for throwing. Sue sourced tiny patterned wooden buttons and beautiful ribbons. She handcrafted welcome signs, the table plan and a box for the cards. Vases were filled with bright blooms and the bouquets and buttonholes were all put together by this talented mother of the bride. I’m sure there was a million and one other details that I haven’t mentioned, but it all looked absolutely amazing and was such a wonderful personal way to add those little touches.

Lucy and Gareth’s Wedding wasn’t heralded by the very best of luck in the lead up to the Big Day. A number of guests wound up with a sick bug on the morning of the celebrations. These particular guests had travelled from Australia for the Wedding so a bit of a dodgy tummy wasn’t going to keep them away though! Lucy has a bit of a reputation for being a tad clumsy, so apparently it wasn’t in anyway a surprise when she wound up with a huge black eye a week before the wedding, after what should have been a regular walk with their very energetic dog. When I saw her just a couple of days before I couldn’t help but gasp! Luckily the swelling had reduced, and Lucy works with her talented make up artist friend Lou, so between them the girls were prepared with an artillery of concealer, foundations and powder. You wouldn’t have had any idea that she was in fact sporting a huge shiner under her flawless makeup. This bad luck dried up about lunchtime on the day of the wedding, with clouds disappearing, blue sky appearing overhead and happy guests ready to enjoy the celebrations.

I love to see a couple who are clearly having the very best time, and enjoying one anothers company so much. Lucy is a ray of sunshine. She has the most amazing smile and is always laughing, in turn making Gareth laugh. their portraits are just filled with so much happiness it makes me smile every time I look at them.

It was my first time at The Beeches in Brislington and I loved this intimate typically British hotel. With mosaic floors, bay windows and high ceilings it has the feel of a quaint seaside hotel, even though it is really close to the centre of Bristol. Lovely simple gardens are great for group pictures, with lots of space for guests to relax and enjoy their drinks outside.

Thank you for all the fun and laughter Mr and Mrs Thomas. I hope your honeymoon in the States has been just awesome!
