The Square Club Wedding Photographer

Jenny and Jason’s Bristol Wedding

The Square Club is a Bristol venue and an awesome place to be a wedding photographer! From the outside, the Square Club – a members’ club for creatives which sits within the Berkeley Square Hotel – looks like any of the other beautiful Georgian buildings that is just so characteristically Clifton. Inside though, its full of surprises – from the quirky lounge, swanky lower deck cocktail bar and the stylish heated outdoor space ‘the terrace’. It’s certainly a unique wedding venue.

Sitting just off the iconic Park Street, and a stone’s throw from The Triangle, this wedding venue could hardly be any closer to Bristol City Centre. Brandon Hill Park is a short walk away, with its beautifully landscaped gardens surrounding Cabot Tower, epic views across Bristol city and beyond into North Somerset.

Thank you so much Becky, we both absolutely love the photos you’ve sent us, you’ve really managed to capture the love & laughter from our wedding, your candid style of almost being invisible on the day makes for fantastic photos.

You worked so hard all day & night to ensure we ended up with such a superb end product.

A massive thank you from the both of us & it’s a shame I can only give you 5 stars,you deserve a hundred…!!!

I can highly recommend Becky  & I will do in the future,you will not be disappointed,she is absolutely fantastic

The Wedding Day

The day started at Jen and Jason’s gorgeous house in Weston Super Mare. I was welcomed by Jenny’s three beautiful granddaughters who were very excited to show me their flower girl dresses, shoes, bouquets and flower garlands (flowers by Flourish and Grace). Jenny’s daughters did her with her wedding make-up and helped her into her wedding dress, one of my favourite moments of the morning was catching granddaughter Mabel running into Jen’s arms and telling her she looked amazing after seeing her in her Monsoon wedding dress for the first time.

I caught up with Jason and his best man in the Bridal suite of the Berkeley Square hotel. Jason is one of the coolest looking grooms I’ve ever photographed but he was feeling pretty nervous (not that you can tell in the images, he looks as cool as ever!). Buttonholes, ties and cufflinks secured, the chaps headed to the Square Club to await Jenny’s arrival.

One of my favourite moments just before the ceremony was when I caught granddaughter Mabel having a cheeky pick of her nose just minutes before the ceremony commenced. This is one of the many reasons I absolutely LOVE kids at weddings, there is always a funny moment to like this to be caught on camera, often completely unseen by anyone other than me (until the couple receive their wedding gallery, of course!).

The ceremony was particularly special, with covid still restricting the number of guests allowed, it felt incredibly intimate. Jenny’s daughters’ faces were particularly poignant as they watched their much-loved Mum tie the knot.

After the ceremony confetti was thrown out on Berkeley Square and we took some group photographs of the newly-married couple and their wedding guests.

Jason is Bristol born and bred and so a trip up to the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge was a must for the newly-weds portraits. This was the highlight of my day because Jenni from Milbury Morris Minors let me sit in the front of her beautifully restored Morris Minor, Dilly. The bride and groom screamed laughing as we whizzed up through Clifton village, waving at passers-by who shouted congratulations from the streets. I leapt out of the car at the suspension bridge to take photos as the couple headed over the Avon gorge.

The wedding breakfast preceded the speeches which were particularly beautiful. Both of Jenny’s parents have sadly passed away and this was something we talked about lots before the big day. Jen really wanted to make a speech but wasn’t sure if she was going to be able to hold it together. She had read my blog How to Cope Without your Mum on your Wedding Day, and we had discussed at great length some coping strategies for getting through some very emotional words during her speech. I felt so moved photographing Jenny successfully deliver her speech (and if I’m honest, pretty proud of her too!). Jen’s teenage daughter Poppy also delivered a speech which was an impressive mix of funny and emotive.

After a round of shots for all the adults, the wedding guests retired to the terrace for more drinks, cake (by Hayleigh’s Cakery) and the first dance.

Birstol Weddings

It is so hard not to fall in love with Bristol as a city. There is so much going on in this wonderfully diverse, unique town. From shopping on Gloucester Road with it’s endless number of independent stores, a night out on Corn Street, coffee on Whiteladies road, or taking a walk in the green spaces of Ashton Court, Clifton Downs or Snuff Mills.

Bristol has been a part of my life since I started at the University of the West of England on Glenside campus 10 years ago. I was a country bumpkin through and through but came to love this special west country city. It’s always an honour to shoot weddings in and around Bristol, a place that will always be very close to my heart.
