I had a smile on my face for much of the time whilst editing these images, it was such a pleasure working my way through them and reliving Emma & Alasdair’s wedding day. They’d picked two brilliant, contrasting venues for their wedding at Arnos Vale & The Paintworks, just a few minutes walk from each other, and the spring sunshine cast a beautiful light across much of the day – we were even lucky enough to catch an unexpected sunset!
The day began in one of the apartments down at the Paintworks in what must make one of the coolest bridal suites going. It was then over to Arnos Vale cemetery for a very atmospheric and intimate ceremony inside the elegant Spielman centre. The combination of beautifully classic, and new urban venues provided ample opportunity for some fabulous portraits which we duly took advantage of throughout the day. Emma & Alasdair’s Arnos Vale & Bristol Paintworks Engagement Shoot a few weeks prior proved to be a nice warm up, and I was really pleased that their wedding portraits turned out to be just as photogenic.
This was my first time photographing at either of these two venues and I absolutely loved it, and I’d like to thank Emma & Alasdair so much for happily going along with my ideas and entrusting me to capture their wedding day. Here’s some lovely feedback:
“Mark, we can’t thank you enough for our photos – they are truly wonderful!! The images are beautiful – and captured a perfect day from such a natural perspective. The smiles, happiness and laughter from the day really shone in the photos, such wonderful images which we will treasure which will help our memories of the day come to life in many years to come. The photos were ready for us so quickly after the wedding that we spent a day in an internet café in Indonesia on our honeymoon trying to get a good wifi connection to see them with such excitement!! The practice shoot before the wedding was a great way to warm up to the camera, and Mark picked out some great locations which were a great location for some night shots which are so unique and really stunning. We’re so glad we stumbled across Mark at a wedding fair – and couldn’t be happier with our choice of photographer. A million thanks.”
