Michelle & Aaron at Priston Mill

Bride and Groom in picturesque setting

Glorious Landscape

Michelle and Aaron chose the glorious Priston Mill as the venue for their wedding on Thursday 14th June. We started at their home where the talented Emily and Jade of http://www.southwestbridalhairandmakeup.com/ were the glam squad for the day. It was particularly windy so the hair spray had to work double duty.

The couple’s gorgeous little girl Alyssa stole the show with her upside down sunglasses.

Roger headed off to the Watermill at https://www.pristonmill.co.uk/the-watermill/ to meet the boys. Aaron was there with his best man, eagerly awaiting marrying his best friend. Cleverly the couple had arranged transport for all the guests to and from the venue in mini busses.

Like another famous bride, Michelle chose to walk down the aisle on her own. I love this image Roger caught of Aaron nervously waiting while Michelle approaches.

In total character, the ceremony (and the full day) were full of laughter.

Aaron’s son Mason was very proud to stand by his dad. He was so well behaved, an absolute credit to them.

After they had time to have a drink and catch their breath, we whisked the couple off for 20 minutes for some alone time.

It was then time for the group shots. This one always has guests begging me not to jump from the high window, where I am precariously balanced.

The little kids had fun with bubbles while the adults enjoyed a pre-dinner drink in the sunshine.  It really was a fabulous day.

After the fabulous dinner (thank you guys), we went out to the balcony with the signing frame. Both the maid of honour (unofficially) and the best man were busy googling their speeches, I kid you not. Considering the last minute.com nature, they went down very well. 

Instead of the traditional champagne for the toasts, Michelle and Aaron provided their guests with apple sours shots.

I adored Michelle’s blingy wedding band. I had a lot of fun making it sparkle for this shot.

The setting sun always provides beautiful light for some further photos. You may feel all photoed out at the point, but it’s worth another 10 minutes, I promise.

The adventure playground at the back of the Mill attracts children of all ages. The zip line proved to be a hit on Thursday.

Darren from http://www.theweddingplayers.com/ provided the entertainment for the evening, which he kicked off with the first dance.

It was a wonderful day. A small, intimate and relaxed wedding which is exactly what they wanted. Always stick to your guns folks, have the wedding of YOUR dreams.
