So my first post of 2015 starts with my last wedding of 2014 – and what a wonderful way it was to finish the year off! Rosie & Ben’s Roman Baths winter sunrise wedding ceremony shortly before the new year was a small, intimate affair with bags of atmosphere. The Romans Baths make for an enchanting wedding venue, and have always had a different ambience each time I’ve photographed there. This time was no different – with temperatures down to near freezing, the early morning light and steam rising from the warmer water gave a dream like feel to proceedings.
Rosie’s sister managed to attend the touching ceremony online from Australia via skype, after which all the guests headed off for speeches and a full English breakfast in the elegant Pump Room restaurant, just next door. We made time for some romantic photos around the baths before they opened to the public, and took the opportunity to make the most of the winter sun for a few more portraits around Bath Abbey and the gardens.
Here’s some lovely feedback: “Having reviewed our wedding photographs several times now, we both want to thank you so much for the fantastic photographs you took on what was such a cold (but beautiful) December morning! The photographs are great and we both love how you have captured the natural moments of everyone and everything present. It was a joy to look back at the pictures of family and friends; seeing things for the first time that we were completely unaware of on the day. After you had left us for the morning several family members commented on how they had presumed you were one of our friends, which can only testify to your friendly and welcoming approach.”
