Bristol Grand Mercure Hotel, Bristol Registry Office & Castle park

Andy & Inna got married in the beautiful Lantern Room at Bristol Registry Office. The area is surrounded by beautiful sandstone buildings and pave stoned streets. Perfect for us to take a wander around to capture some images of the two and a few group shots too. 


Bristol Registry office, previously known as The Old Council House, was built in the 1820s and is a grade 2 listed building. It has several rooms it uses for wedding ceremonies each with their own charm. The Bristol Room, The Lantern Room, The Mayoral Room and The Grand Council Chamber. The couple chose the grand venue of The Lantern Room within Bristol Registry Office. With its opulent dome ceiling, intricate wood carvings and Regency decor. Portraits of King George II and Queen Caroline overlook the ceremony. Perfect for any couple that loves a period drama and wants a bit of decadence on their wedding day!

Just after Andy & Inna made it official; we took a walk over to Castle Park. Definitely my favourite Bristol city centre spot for wedding photos surrounded by the flowers and the church ruins. When in bloom in June & July, it is really stunning with climbing flowers and lots of trees surrounding the castle garden. St Peter’s church was bombed during the war and took extensive damage which meant it is no longer used. Although the inside is not open to the public, the ruins and gardens provide a beautiful backdrop for anyone wanting a little bit of quiet & greenery in the city. You’d never believe the park is smack bang in the middle of the city centre. Against the backdrop of St Peter’s church & Castle Park it looks like you could be in a quaint village in Somerset rather than right in the centre of a bustling metropolis. 


The newlyweds then moved onto The Grand Mercure Hotel for their reception. We took a walk outside once the sun had set to get some dramatic portraits out on the street – love how they turned out! 

I love getting to meet such lovely couples on their special day. Especially when they are as head over heels as this pair are! Inna’s dress was the sweetest thing & super unique  – I loved the bows and glove combo. Felt very retro 50’s glam – Inna looked like a film star for sure!
