A Tall Long Legged Bird
The great thing about a Bristol wedding is that it’s right on my doorstep. I can enjoy my journey looking at the sights rather than listen to the wretched SAT NAV, and of course, it means I’m home before witching hour!
My poor grandfather was lonely after my grandmother died when I was 13, so my cousins and I used to walk on the Clifton Downs with him, often having heated debates about religion! We would eventually stop at our regular coffee shop on Whiteladies Road for a cup of tea, Danish pastry and a much-needed rest.
Moving into my teenage years, C&A was the place to be. It was one grade up from Primark and affordable for someone who spent their weekends cleaning out dog kennels for 90p per hour. I progressed on to get a job in a burger van at Eastfield Market. This salary increase meant that I migrated up the shopping ladder to Bony Moronie’s, a place where they sold the finest zebra hide winklepickers in the whole of the UK.
In my heyday, I chilled out on the Thekla nightclub boat, or was it the Lock Hill? I can’t remember much from back then, things are quite hazy! It was way back when everyone used to smoke anywhere – you could hardly see where you were most of the time.
Time has moved on, and I no longer partake in the Bristol nightclub scene, thankfully. It is now my eldest daughter who is living the Bristol dream. Nowadays my trips to Bristol include visits to coffee shops in Clifton and eating vegan lunches at Stokes Croft. You can also find me in the Levis store on Park Street, as they have an excellent line in long-legged jeans!
I recently shot a wedding at an old Church called Circomedia in the St Pauls area. Wow, what a place! It’s where circus performers practice their moves but can be hired out for weddings and other parties. You can check out Laura & Daan’s Circomedia wedding here. They had pies, gluten-free and veggie ones! Another favourite venue of mine is the Paintworks Event Space, located in the creative quarter and home to the Martin Parr Foundation.
There are loads of decent venues that I’m yet to shoot at, check out my list below and if you’re getting married at any of the listed venues, just mention that you read ‘the Bristol page’ and I’ll give you a little discount if you book with me or a free Bristol Engagement shoot.
