This edition of West Weddings is crammed with goodies but the one I’m most excited about? The gorgeous inspiration shoot on the ss Great Britain of course! What more could you ask for? We’ve got a handsome groom, stunning bride and a super sweet location. We were lucky enough to have Venetia from Firetop Photography with us on the day and I’m sure you’ll all agree that the pictures are amazing.
As Venetia says on her website, “I discovered my love for photography while travelling overseas, photographing people, places, anything and everything. My introduction to wedding photography was when a friend, who had seen lots of my pictures over the years, persuaded me to be her wedding photographer in Bristol. That was five years ago and since then I haven’t looked back.”
Venetia specialises in relaxed and informal wedding photos that really allow the love of the couple to shine through. She has a contemporary style focusing on simply beautiful images, and rather than gimmicky effects she offers a mix of informal, reportage style (capturing the moment) mixed with lots of detail shots and some semi-directed, stylised bride and groom shots (with a hint of fashion) and a few groups if required. She labels herself as “a very relaxed, friendly, non-pretentious, non-stressed and definitely not a stuffy or bossy photographer”. Venetia can also arrange a wide selection of the very best, bespoke albums, storybooks, frames etc to present your photographs.
I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we did
P.S. Seriously, the wedding shoot made me swoon! My dear old dad got married on the HMS Victory in Portsmouth and I was in awe of the whole day – Venetia’s photos brought it all back!
