THE WEDDING OF ROBYN & LUKE WAS IN THE BEAUTIFUL PRISTON MILL, BATH

 

My first wedding of the year is always exciting for me as I get back into the swing of things after the Christmas and New Year festivities and general chaos. Having already enjoyed photographing Robyn and Luke in the autumn for their engagement shoot, I was particularly looking forward to this lovely wedding at the beautiful Priston Mill just outside Bath.

The day began at the very lovely New Leaf Farm holiday cottages with the girls and boys in separate parts of the complex nervously getting ready. Often, due to time and geographical constraints, I don’t get to capture the lads getting ready or leaving for the ceremony so it was a real privilege to be able to do that with Luke and his groomsmen as everyone was on the same site. As the girls busied themselves with hair, make up and bubbly, the boys got themselves into their stylish black tuxedos and hand-tied bow ties and headed off for a well earned drink at a local pub before the ceremony. Robyn did her own (flawless) make-up and wore a gorgeous vintage inspired lace dress from Justin Alexander that was fitted to perfection with a fur shawl to keep her warm and simple pearl accessories that finished off her look. 

Priston Mill as a wedding venue is very impressive. The ceremony was held in the Tythe Barn and was changed around for the wedding breakfast and evening party efficiently and effortlessly. A balcony area and lounge with an open fire were available to all to relax, drink and chat. And the staff were fantastic – I get so excited when a wedding day is underpinned by people who know what they are doing, understand why they are doing it and do it all with a smile and joy in their souls. 

There was a lovely atmosphere throughout the day as family members got to know friends of the newlyweds and share stories about them. As the evening continued, I thoroughly enjoyed capturing precious looks and moments during the heart-felt speeches and then, later on, getting (a tad) lively on the dance floor with the lads showing off some moves. It was truly special to feel part of their day, even though I was ‘just’ the photographer.
