Keep Calm and Carry On! Words I wish every bride I met would take to heat, and very much the theme for Mark and May. Two of the loveliest people I know.
Johnny, Hock Seng and I were their wedding photographers when they were married back here in Malaysia. After the wedding the migrated down to Australia but when ever they were back in KL they would give me a buzz to remind me they wanted me to be up in Winford for their UK wedding celebration, so finally I got the call and invite to head up to England yet again.The wedding was planned to be in the small town of Winford, just outside of Bristol at the small historic parish church of St. Mary and St. Peter.
The first day we headed into Bristol itself to do some portraits, then back to the church for some shots around it. Next day we started at about 10am with makeup and hair and then the service at 1pm. Mark’s uncle supplied his classic Austin A40 as the awesome wedding car. Don’t you agree it looks sweet!
Once the traditional ceremony was finished there was a confetti toss as the couple left the church. It got everywhere and I still find confetti from the wedding in my camera bagÂ up until today.
After the ceremony it was all back to the Winford pub, and easy 5 minute walk and then the wedding breakfast (we call it a wedding reception back in Malaysia). The three tiered cake represented the three main countries Mark and May have shared their lives together in, Malaysia, Australia, and the UK
Tech Specs: Camera Nikon D3s. No flash allowed in church.
