Avon Gorge Hotel Wedding Photography – Mike and Jenna

The Avon Gorge Hotel is a stunning location for a wedding with the terrace view across to the Clifton Suspension Bridge, not to mention an easy walk to the Bridge for extra special photos.

Jenna was getting ready with the girls in the Bridal Suite with its twin bath tubs and lovely picture window overlooking the Bridge.  Mike was already suited and booted in the bar with friends and family when we arrived although we did manage some photos with him and the best men.  The ceremony room on the lower floor had the guest chairs in place and its always with a quick check of the lighting as we can’t use flash. We were also filming the wedding so it was an ideal moment to decide the best place for the cameras.

A run up four floors got me back to Jenna’s room ready for the moment her dad saw her for the first time. It was perfect! The girls decided on a few selfies before the walk down to the ceremony, a good opportunity for me to take a photos of them taking a picture of themselves!

Once back in the ceremony room, the air conditioning had started (a videographers nightmare) but Mike was wearing a lapel mic which fortunately didn’t pick up the sound. After the ceremony the couple moved to the outdoor terrace for confetti and the group photos.  They had requested a group photo with the drone which I flew just for a couple of photos, mindful of the property at the rear of the venue which had been notified about the flight.

We worked out way through lots of informal photos, family groups and a few requested group photos.  After the wedding breakfast and speeches, we headed up to the Suspension Bridge for the planned evening photos. It’s a busy place any time of day so we had to wait a few seconds for a few people to clear; they could see it was a wedding and after a few ‘congratulations’ they moved on. 

With the evening photos in the bag it was time to head back for the dancing and the real party to start.
