Beautiful serenity: a real wedding in Bristol

Emma and Duncan were married in Bristol earlier in the year. Sometimes when I see a wedding for the first time I’m in quiet awe of the bride’s beauty, the atmosphere of the day and the lovely pictures. In this case wedding photographer Matt Tordoff had me almost holding my breath as I looked through the wedding photos.

I hope I can share that impression with you today: of quiet serenity, a sense of calm and pure beauty in these wonderful wedding images.

Wedding photographer Matt Tordoff told me Emma was a hockey player, the girls forming the arch are all members of her previous hockey team.

    Just stumbled across these, as a Bristol based photograher it is great to see such lovely Bristol shots. I love the hockey stick archway! Nice work. A beautiful bride too.
