Nicole and Mark tied the knot at the Mercure Bristol North. A perfect wedding venue that could host their large family for the whole day from ceremony right the way through to the evening’s entertainment.
On the day the girls were getting ready at the brides mother’s house. Nicole’s mum is a hair dresser so it was only natural she did her daughters hair for her special day. For the bridesmaids however she had roped in a fellow hairdresser so she had time to get ready herself and enjoy the day.
The girls were in good spirits as they chatted doing their make up. Talking of the day ahead there was excitement in the house and before long it was time to leave.
Arriving at the Grange hotel (Mercure Bristol North) there was just enough time to take pictures of the empty room before guests gathered for the ceremony.
Mark was smiling as he talked with his guests. Before long he was stood up as Nicole’s dad walked her down the aisle.
The hotel staff served welcome drinks on the way out of the ceremony allowing guests to congratulate the couple. People then lined up to throw confetti before family formals on the lawn.
The unpredictable British weather unfortunately turned as we were taking the couple shots. Nicole & Mark were happy though that we had managed to take a few and could now enjoy the rest of the day with their guests.
The wedding party ate before speeches. Nicole’s dad gave an emotional talk on how proud he was. Mark kept his short, just thanking his guests. We then heard from two of his groomsmen. They politely said they had plenty of stories they could share but were not going to stitch Mark up on his wedding day. We heard how they made a great couple. Had two beautiful girls and now marriage was their next step in completing their family.
First dance was to Ellie Goulding’s “Army”. The couple invited their guest to join in on the dance floor.
The red curtain photo booth opened in the evening, guests enjoyed dressing up. You can see the blog from their wedding photo booth here.
