Goldney Hall Wedding

Clifton, Bristol

I was thrilled when Madeleine and Jamie asked me to be their Goldney Hall wedding photographer

This stunning venue, with its manicured lawns and landscaped grounds, catches you totally by surprise as you enter through its unimposing gate off Lower Clifton Hill. I had no idea that such a spectacular venue existing in Bristol’s busy Clifton village.

The Orangery at Goldney Hall is truly stunning, flooded with natural light from its floor to ceiling French doors. Guests can spill out onto the lawns and wonder around the beautifully landscaped gardens, finding many treasures, including an ornamental canal, mahogany parlour and even a shell covered grotto!

This wedding day was such a pleasure to capture, it was a gorgeous sunny day, in a beautiful setting with smiley, happy people – a wedding photographer’s dream!

About the Wedding Day

Madeline and her bridesmaids got ready at her parents’ home just a stone’s throw from the wedding venue. The couple got married at Christ Church in Clifton village. After they had said their vows, exchanged rings and completed the signing of the register they were welcomed into their new married life together by joyful guests outside the church, who showered them in confetti.

A handful of family photographs were taken in the doors of the old church while guests headed to the wedding venue.

We arrived at Goldney Hall in the couple’s beautiful vintage wedding car. The drinks reception was in full swing with champagne and canapes being served to thirsty guests.

The orangery was decorated beautifully, with gorgeous floral table decorations being flooded with natural light via the French doors.

Madeleine, Jamie and I enjoyed a little stroll around the beautiful gardens and captured some beautiful portraits of the newly-weds whilst guests were seated to eat. Speeches were delivered between their three-course wedding breakfast and afterwards, guests spilled back out into the gardens to enjoy drinks in the evening sun.

The band set up quickly and it wasn’t long before the first dance commenced. The bride and groom were quickly joined by their wedding guests and the dance floor was soon filled with loved ones, ready to party and celebrate the new Mr and Mrs.
