Laura & Ben | Goldbrick House | Wedding
Laura and Ben’s black tie wedding in Goldbrick house was a very classy affair. Right in the centre of Bristol, the family got ready at the Marriott hotel. It was great to see everyone getting ready and it also gave me a chance to slip between all of the rooms and photograph the anticipation in the Bridal suite and guys pulling on socks in the other! It was a lovely atmosphere, lots of banter, nervousness and plenty of excitement.
Laura wore a beautiful, classic Nicola Anne England wedding gown complete with Rachel Simpson shoes. I found it really amusing how Laura’s serious preparation kept being interrupted by surprise romantic gifts from Ben. Firstly his brother bought in two dozen red roses. Next up, some cool Lego wedding mementoes and finally some beautiful diamond earrings.
It was great to see Laura’s hair and makeup artist Kate Kelvin again. I’ve seen her a lot this year and I think she does the most incredible Job. Philippa Spearing bought along the blue, pink and white wedding bouquets and button holes for the bridal party. Understated but beautiful. Ben hired his wedding tux from Moss Bros. As a dude I love the black tie look. If my own wedding hadn’t been out a summer garden wedding I would have worn it too. Everyone looked effortlessly amazing.
We then headed off to Goldbrick House on Bristol’s Park Street for the wedding ceremony and reception. It was great to see them both tie the knot and after a few celebratory drinks and canapés on the roof terrace of Goldbrick House we headed off, through the streets of Bristol to Brandon Hill for some photos. Bristol is great for wedding portraits. You can mix it up by using the cool backdrops of long streets, the graffiti as well as the pretty parks. We headed back just in time to see everyone seated for the wedding breakfast and then the speeches began. Whilst my view was quite restricted I managed to capture quite a few tears as Laura’s father gave one the most sentimental speech I’ve ever heard. It was a tough act to follow but Ben and his best man did not disappoint with some of the most outrageous anecdotes I’ve ever heard.
After a cream tea, with cool vintage crockery by Bristol Vintage, Laura and Ben cut the Lego cheese cake inspiration and then the party began.
