It was a beautiful day, perfect for an intimate wedding. As I arrived at No.4 Clifton Village, I was greeted by the hotel's exquisite architecture, a perfect blend of Georgian elegance and contemporary design. It was an ideal venue to photograph a wedding, with its stunning décor and warm ambiance. No.4 Clifton Village Wedding I knew this venue was going to be a dream to photograph.
Yulia and Tim's wedding was an intimate one. They had booked me for 6 hours, covering from the ceremony until the cake cutting. Although I had not been booked for bridal preparation, I arrived early to capture some photos of the bride getting ready. Yulia's makeup was done by Charlotte Smith, and she done a stunning job for Yulia.
The ceremony was at noon, and it was gorgeously decorated with flowers, the ceremony room provided an amazing light on Yulia as she walked down the aisle. Yulia looked breathtaking in her body-fitting dress with a sweetheart neckline.
Yulia walked down the aisle on her own, followed by her two sisters, who were the bridesmaids, and the flower girl just before her, Karolina. The ceremony was intimate and personal, with the couple exchanging heartfelt vows.
After the ceremony, we headed to the garden for confetti and group shots. Although the garden wasn't the biggest of spaces, it was ideal for the wedding party, which was small. The confetti went off with a bang, with guests having two large confetti cannons. I was able to capture some beautiful and candid shots of the guests and the couple enjoying this moment.
Once the group shots were done, I took the couple to Clifton Downs for some photos. I let them walk around and share some moments, capturing some beautiful candid shots. I also tried some slow shutter shots, which were modern and fresh-looking, making some great art pieces.
When we arrived back at the venue, I used the tree outside the hotel to take some pictures. It was full of blooms and was the perfect spot for a couple shot. The tree provided a beautiful natural background that enhanced the couple's intimacy and love.
The speeches were heartfelt and very understated, Yulia said a few words of her own, I always love when traditions take another direction and complimented her independent decision to walk down the aisle on her own. The speeches brought tears, laughter, and toasts that added to the wedding's personal touch.
After the speeches, the food arrived, and the guests enjoyed their meals. Once dinner was finished, it was time to cut the cake. The cake was a beautiful three-tiered cake made by Rosie Shaws Cake Company, and it looked stunning.
The day was a beautiful celebration of love, and Yulia and Tim's wedding was a perfect reflection of their personalities. It was simple, informal, and intimate, with a personal touch. The No.4 Clifton Village Wedding venue was perfect for their wedding, with its beautiful décor, intimate ambiance, and elegant architecture. As a photographer, I always strive to capture the beauty and intimacy of the weddings I photograph. Yulia and Tim's wedding was a perfect reflection of their love.
