These guys were super early booking me for their Berwick Lodge wedding. I think they were the first booking that came in for 2019. I met them round their house for a cup of tea and a chat through the day, it all seemed quite distant at the time, but as we all know, wedding dates come round fast, and for us wedding photographers the season seems to come round super quick.
Emma and David were really laid back and photographing their wedding was a pleasure. There was a lot of humour, and a few traditions particularly on the dance floor, that I enjoyed. (you’ll see some of that in the images). At first I thought they were Greek traditions, but no, they were just crazy party moves that David and his mates had always done. No one seems to know why, or at least I didn’t get to the bottom of it!
The whole day took place at Berwick lodge in Bristol. You would never know it was there as it’s tucked away in the fields in North Bristol. You could literally be in the middle of nowhere, but you’re actually just off the M5 and close to Bristol’s biggest shopping centre. You can’t hear either, it feels more like rural Wales!
This Berwick Lodge wedding was one to remember, fun and relaxed with a hint of crazy. Loved it!
Here’s some lovely feedback from Emma.
“So glad that we chose Matt to do our wedding photography, he listened to everything we wanted and was a perfect choice as we really did not want to spend all day posing! I said to my husband that I didn’t think we would have many pictures of everyone during the wedding breakfast because I didn’t notice Matt around but when we got the pictures back we had loads of natural shots of people eating and laughing together and lots of brilliant reaction shots to the speeches, he just did his thing in the background and got all these amazing shots…brilliant! Matt was very warm and friendly and our guests were able to chat to him really easily. I would definitely recommend Matt if anyone were to ask.”
Some Tech info.
I shot the majority of this Berwick Lodge wedding using the Fuji x-pro 2 and the 18mm f2. This is one of the last weddings I have used this camera for as I have moved over to a Sony A7iii setup. Loving the new Sony, but also missing the Fuji’s. Sony have managed to create the perfect tool to take pictures, the jury is out on whether it’s the perfect tool for photographers!
