A little bit of Paris in Bristol real life wedding

A little bit of Paris to start the week with the Bristol real life wedding of Brigitte and Graham captured by Sam Gibson Photography.  Having got engaged in Paris, Brigitte and Graham wanted to include this into their wedding theme and enroled the help of Kirsten Butler from The Little Wedding Helper to turn their wishes into a french wedding delight.

On the day Brigitte’s bridal hair and make up preparations were completed by Grace Kingsley before meeting her groom for their big day at  Goldbrick House in Bristol.  Kirsten  transformed the room at Goldbrick House to give the feeling of a shabby chic Manor House complete with rustic floral table decorations, Parisian memorabelia with a vintage edge using old photographs and vintage french style tags for guests to write messages to the newlyweds.
