I was blown away by Jade and Tom's ship shape and Bristol fashion wedding in the heart of the city. From a moody rainy morning to the bright and bold Commercial Rooms, I found Tom with guests getting a few pints in before the ceremony. Just up the road in one of my favourite parts of the city amongst the hustle and bustle of Bristol's St Nicholas Market, Jade and Tom renewed their vows in the elegant Old Council House's Grand Council Chamber. I fought back the tears hearing them read their vows and was amazed by the hand knitted Jade and Tom miniatures made by Jade's Grandmother, she has some serious knitting skills!
The sun's timing was impeccable as guests poured out onto the cobbles of Corn Street followed by Jade and Tom who turned plenty of heads, they received well wishes from lovely locals and even posed for a photo with tourists on the busy Friday lunch time.
Umbrellas at the ready, we then strolled down to the harbour side, with time for a quick sit with Long John Wallace ("Wensleydale"), before a boat trip with Bristol Packet Boat Trips aboard The Tower Belle. With rain clouds now cleared we cruised through Bristol's glorious floating harbour, taking in the sunshine and the famous sights before mooring near The Mud Dock Cafe to continue the celebrations.
I love The Mud Dock with it's quirky style, bikes hanging from the ceiling, that window, the light and the perfect spot overlooking the water. We all wowed over the incredible cake and cute table decorations made by Jade and her Mum and a candle was lit in memory of Jade's Dad, Jeff. With sad and happy tears, beautiful words, hugs all round and yummy food the evening continued with plenty of fun and frolics.
Just awesome! Massive congratulations Jade and Tom xx
