Recent Events

Congratulations to Jan & Andy, whose wedding we recently photographed at Bristol Registry Office in Corn Street. The ceremony was followed by a boat trip around Bristol Harbour, and the reception was held at the River Station.
Andy is a member of the Bristol Samba Band, and his band were there to greet the happy couple as they left their wedding venue. A large crowd gathered to watch the band play, and Andy was invited to perform with his fellow band members. A lovely surprise for Jan & Andy's wedding day!
