Christmas wedding at Kings Weston House

On Saturday we shot Laura and Arash at Kings Weston House in Bristol. The last time we were there was a Christmas wedding with Kate and Eddie. Kate got ready at the house with her bridesmaids, flowergirls, Mum and friends.

I love the bridal prep. It’s one of my favourite parts of the day. It can be fun to shoot grooms too but for the most part grooms tend to hang around in jeans and a t-shirt eating bacon sandwiches – A quick shower, ruffle of the hair and they’re off. A bride’s preparation is more emotional, more lively there are more things going on and it’s hard not to get great shots. It’s also very humid. Lots of bodies, hairdryers and hairspray.

Kings Weston House is – like most old houses, dark but the room where Kate got ready was lovely and light. A treat to shoot in. Kate was a delight to photograph as well, lots of expression and full of life. We tend to find that there are two kinds of flower girls – one’s that like having their photos taken and those that run screaming. We chose option 2 that day. It was our first Christmas wedding and it was magical to have the house decorated up.

Here are some of my favourite bridal prep images from Kate and Eddie’s wedding.
