Mark and Jen – A Bristol Wedding
Mark and Jennifer got engaged on a beautiful beach in Thailand, five years after meeting each other. The couple were saving for a house, so didn't want their wedding to cost the earth, but getting married in the spring meant that they could take advantage of out of season venue deals. Jen bought her dress online, and although this felt like a bit of a gamble, it totally paid off - the dress was beautiful, well-made and fitted perfectly.
Their photographer, Dale Stephens Wedding Photography, was excited to get the rare opportunity to photograph the groom and his groomsmen getting ready, before they travelled to the venue in the best man's Vauxhall Chevette. The wedding breakfast was held in the glass-fronted restaurant of the hotel, looking out onto Bristol's harbour. They decorated each table with white flowers and table numbers that were designed and drawn by Jen, each one representing a different place that the couple had travelled together. Jen also made all of the bouquets and floral table decorations, giving the day a really personal touch.
