I met Chris about 5 years ago when I lived in beautiful Bath. It was when I was going through what I like to refer to as "my tubby years!" Yep, I was carrying a fair bit of excess baggage and needed kicking into shape, so I bit the bullet and joined a gym. Chris ran a kettlebell course at the gym and took extreme enjoyment out of making people lug what can only be described as a concrete ball around our body until we felt like we were gonna collapse, or be sick... or both! It was intense, painful, but actually really bloody worked. And to this day, other than running, it's the only thing that works for me in beating the bulge.
Fast forward a couple of years and I get a Facebook message from him asking if I could photograph his wedding. Of course I instantly accepted! A few months later we arranged a pre-wedding shoot in Bath so I could get to meet himself and his bride-to-be, Alison. After a catch up over a coffee we headed out to take some snaps around the city.
So, onto the wedding, and wow, what a wedding! With Chris' impressive facial fuzz, and Alison glowing from being pregnant, the pair looked stunning. I've got to admit, I was a bit jealous of both the beard, and the rather dapper suit Chris was wearing.
After getting hitched in Bath city centre, we headed down to the famous Royal Crescent to get some portraits shot (minus the tourists). Then it was onto Seymours Court, also in Somerset, for their wedding reception. With a lovely decorated triple tipi, a fire pit, and mobile cider bar, I was spoilt for photo opportunities.
It was very clear to see that Alison & Chris had put so much thought and effort into getting the details of their big day exactly how they wanted it, and worked extremely hard to make everything look so cool... and they succeeded.
HUGE congratulations guys, and thanks again for asking me to snap your special day... it was awesome!
