Saturday the 2nd of May saw the start of the very busy Bristol wedding photography season and what a busy day it was!
Harriet and David’s wedding day started with Harriet and her Bridesmaids’ getting ready at her parents beautiful home in Yate. After visiting them early in the morning for the preparations, I headed to Tracy Park in Wick to meet David and his entourage.
Harriet and David had opted for a civil ceremony at Tracy Park, which has a lovely bright room at the front of the house licenced for civil ceremonies. Working alongside me at the wedding was videographer Rob Taylor who did a stunning job of not just filming the wedding, but also not getting in the way of the wedding photographer!
After the wedding ceremony the guests headed outside onto the lawn for some wedding group shots. At Tracy Park it is possible to shoot group photographs from the first floor so this gives a great overhead perspective. On leaving the house, Harriet and David’s wedding Ushers gave each guest a balloon that were all released together and this made a brilliant group shot when shot from the first floor window.
As the wedding guests sat down to eat the wedding breakfast, I spotted a couple of familliar faces. Blending in with the resturant staff at Tracy Park, I spotted the infamous Singing Waiters. I have had the pleasure of working with the Singing Waiters several times before and knew exactly what to expect as the desert course was being cleared away…. The sound of smashing crockery followed by a surpirse performance of Tony Christie and Neil Diamond classics accompanied by vigourous audience participation. Always wonderfully popular, the Singing Waiters set a great party atmosphere that continued long into the evening!
