Capturing Celebration of Love Between Steve and Kayleigh
Being a wedding photographer in Bristol definitely has its advantages. Not only do I get to do my job, but also listen to great love stories that happen in real life. And I had the great opportunity to work with a really lovely couple, Steve and Kayleigh, who said their I Dos in St John Church in Keynsham .Their venue was Berwick Lodge Speaking of which, this is another perk of being a Bristol wedding photographer – you get to be in places you would normally not venture to, unless you really have to. And the Berwick Lodge has this beautiful setting that would turn even the most unromantic person romantic.
What’s the story behind Steve and Kayleigh?
It was rizla at first sight! Well, sort of. The first time they met was at a new BMX track in Keynsham when she accompanied her eldest nephew, Sam. She used rizla as an excuse to start talking to Steve, asking him if he has any. They have been together ever since.
11 years after, Steve proposed in his typical sense of humour. On the bedroom floor, He arranged candles in the shape of a heart around a vase filled with red roses. Resting against the case was a 3D pop-up card with the words ‘congratulations on your engagement’. The image still makes me laugh to this day, simply because it was not the typical marriage proposal, and Steve was like congratulating Her with her engagement to someone else.
For all the years they’ve been together, through ups and downs, they definitely deserved the wedding of their dreams. And they did get to do that in a ceremony in St. John’s Church in Keynsham, Bristol, and a reception in Berwick Lodge. I was very happy to be the Bristol wedding photographer who was able to capture such a momentous event. Steve and Her really made me believe about longevity. After 11 years, they still have stars in their eyes for one another. Kayleigh even told me that she was over the moon that Steve still wanted to marry her and put up more with her for the next years or so. If that is not true love, I seriously do not know what is.
All the love and romance tripled, or even quadrupled, because of their choice of venue. As a wedding venue and hotel, Berwick Lodge is simply superb. It is the best-kept secret in the South West, featuring a magnificent country house and acres of enchanting gardens. The beautiful garden with a couple of fountains provided a magical backdrop for my Bristol wedding photography. And because the weather was sunny and dry, something that seldom happens in England, taking pictures outdoors was easy and convenient. The colours that Mother Nature provided also added to the appeal and the beauty of the photographs. Overall, I can say that it was a great day to get married, and Steve and Kayleigh definitely chose the perfect time and location.
The presence of family and friends also made a huge difference. It made the celebration even more lovely and joyful. It was enough for Steve and Kayleigh to have made their family proud. I can only hope the love all around the venue that day translated to the pictures. I cannot wait to show them the precious moments I have captured on camera. It is in events like these that make being a wedding photographer in Bristol worth it.
