As part of my continuous self improvement as a wedding photographer I am trying to visit different locations in and around Bristol to get to know them. This is not only good to build on my photography skills but also to improve my local knowledge, meet new people from Bristol and find exciting locations for wedding and engagement sessions. I thought I would start posting some links to locations in Bristol that I have liked and recommend. Last weekend I visited Burwalls for a location shoot as part of the flickr Bristol strobist event. It’s a fantastic location with beautiful grounds just over the Clifton suspension bridge, fortunately not far from where I live.
Inside there are some lovely rooms, including the dining room and some great spots for strobist photography, but also large windows for ambient light. Luckily the weather was pretty good, overcast for most of the day although with intervals of sun so I spent most of the day photographing outside. It’s a traditional old style English country house with plenty of character and a beautiful view down to the Avon river and over the city.
