ROSS & BECCY'S WEDDING

In early November last year local studio photographer Ross Campbell approached me on Instagram (@jimcosseyphotography) and asked if I would meet him and his wife to be Becky to have a chat about shooting their wedding. Being an Aussie I assumed he loved good coffee, so I suggested to meet at Full Court Press in Bristol, I’m pretty sure that was the deal breaker! Ross had seen my night time flash photography on Instagram and as they were having an evening wedding, Ross and Beccy’s main focus was to capture beautiful shots of them in the streets of Bath and not so much on the traditional side of wedding photography i.e the speeches and the first dance… I was a little nervous at first as Ross is very talented photographer, but I was very excited to shoot a wedding at the Roman Baths and this was a great opportunity to create memories and stunning pictures.

I met Ross and his best man outside their hotel in the quant streets of the old city where we started the wedding shoot.

Ross and Becky were doing things a little different on their evening, the plan was to take photos of the of them both in the streets of Bath and then onwards to shoot the baths before the ceremony began. This worked out really well as it was a good amount of time to get the shots that Becky and Ross wanted of them in the beautiful streets.

Opposite the entrance to the Roman Baths is Bath street where I started to photograph Beccy and Ross against the pillars, it was a great foreground and the photo’s worked out really well.

Heading into the baths we had about 25 minutes before the guests arrived for the ceremony.  It was a cold night but the temperature was just right as steam rose off the main bath creating a beautiful setting.

The setting was just speechless, flaming torches on the old pillars lit up the bath, whilst the 2000 year old architecture helped set the scene for the beautiful evening wedding.

We then Headed up to the top of the baths for more photos, where we had great views of Bath Abbey that provided an impressive backdrop.

The ceremony was beautiful with a warm heartfelt poem from the one of the bridesmaids.

With the signing of the registrar, it was a short walk to the other side for mulled wine and cider whilst the guests socialised before heading upstairs for the wedding breakfast.

Becky and her bridesmaids looked beautiful with their furry shrugs and stunning floral bouquets.

The wedding breakfast commenced with a seasonal buffet and delicious puddings but for me that was the end of the evening. I left them to carry on with the speeches and first dance.  Thanks again to Becky and Ross for letting me be part of their special day and for capturing beautiful memories.  Thanks to all the staff that did an amazing job at The Roman Baths
