Bristol Register Office Small Wedding
Liza & Rafa might be the luckiest couple in the world. They planned their wedding with two guests before the dreaded pandemic was even in public conscience, and it just happened that the date they had always planned fell 3 days after the registry offices reopened. So these two managed to almost have the exact wedding they had always wanted in the middle of the pandemic.
I honestly can’t tell you how much fun this was. I was only with them for a few hours, but considering I hadn’t shot a wedding since 4 months earlier, I was absolutely beside myself with excitement. Also, these two were SO MUCH FUN. Seriously, just look at the photos. I was laughing so much with them and it really didn’t take any prompting at all to get them relaxed and messing around. I just let them be them!
After the shorter than normal wedding ceremony, we headed outside where a few of their friends from work surprised them with balloons to congratulate them. After a couple of photos on the steps outside the Bristol Register Office, we set off for a few iconic spots nearby. St Nicks Market always looks cool (I love the fairy lights above and the soft lighting) and then down at the bottom of Broad Street, my absolutely fave photography spot, St John on the Wall – the graffiti covered archway.
We then headed over to Castle Park and stopped for a quick glass of Champagne to celebrate before wandering down to Finzel’s Reach Bridge for the last few wedding photos. I then left the four of them to enjoy a lunch down at Whapping Wharf! They plan to have a ceremony back in Spain when they are able.
I had the best few hours with Liza and Rafa. I absolutely loved that I got to be a part of their wedding day and be their wedding photographer!
