Every now and then, it's totally refreshing and exciting to come across a couple so unique, and so engaging that it brings tears to my eyes. Enter Alison and Moody... Just look at their wedding attire! Amazing, right? I am in love... with both of them! The groom, Moody, hand decorated his suit. Seriously! What man do you know that would hand decorate is fucking suit? NONE! But, Moody? Yeah, he not only hand decorated it, but he even took the left over fabric from Alison's wedding dress (cut from the fittings) to make small, delicate flowers and pearls for the little button hole bouquets. I mean...
And Alison's dress? Holy shit! I am DY ING over it! Just dying! Not only does she look amazing, but I love seeing brides who are brave enough to truly break out of the, "I have to wear a white wedding dress on my wedding day" thing. And she just ROCKS it!
Well... enough outta me. Alison & Moody's photographer will walk you though the beauty of the day. Enjoy!
Words from the Photographer, Ms. Charlene Morton: Last Wednesday I had the midweek pleasure of photographing Alison and Moody’s Bristol Wedding. The guests gathered on the sunny steps of Brisol Registry Office ready to greet the Bride and Groom who entered together. A rush of fuchsia pink ran through the guests outfits, satin ties were worn by the grooms party, whilst elements of the colour could be found throughout. The style of the day was very creative, with a punky, and individual edge. I especially loved the matching shades worn by the grooms party, making them look like they were 1940's mobsters!
The wedding party were led inside into an ornate, wood panelled room and the ceremony commenced with a room full of close family and friends.
Moody had hand decorated his black suit with fuschia coloured sequins, and beads which swirled over his shoulders and down his lapel. Not only pulling the wedding’s colour themes together, but also adding a personal, creative touch. Moody had also hand sewn each of the small button hole bouquets, from inches of fabric which was removed from the bottom of Alison's wedding dress in the fitting stages. The fabric was cut into small delicate flowers and small pearls added to complete the mini bouquets – such a lovely idea!
We made full use of the Registry Offices main front steps, we shut the heavy black doors and posed the entire wedding party for a full group shot, which was full of smiles, hugs and improvised confetti!
The guests then embarked on a walk from the steps down to the water side. We made use of the lovely harbor scenery en route to take some group shots.
That's the coolest kid I have ever seen!
The wedding party then boarded a boat for an hour long Bristol Cruise along the river. A lovely relaxing trip with sunshine, drinks, chocolate cake and strawberries.
After the boat ride, the guests began walking to the reception venue, we broke away from the convoy and I whisked the couple off for a few intimate couple shots, making the most of the beautiful surroundings of Bristol city centre including gated door-ways, decorative flower beds and the magnificent cathedral.
On arrival at the reception venue, Goldbrick House, we were led up to a lovely intimate room upstairs which had been decorated with fuchsia balloons and decorations, matching cupcakes decorated with pink icing were towered on stands in lieu of a wedding cake, for guests to tuck in to!
Before dinner was served, guests were treated to champagne and toasted the newlyweds. Speeches made were thoughtful whilst having a element of cheeky humour (especially from the best man!), and the atmosphere was just wonderful.
It was a lovely intimate wedding day, full of close friends and family, which I’m sure went on well into the night. Congratulations Alison and Moody!
Thank you to Charlene Morton for submitting this fabulous wedding!!
