The Wedding Reporter

Today we hear from a Bristol Wedding Business that is completely unique, and in our opinion a very wonderful idea... we recommend The Wedding Reporter!

The premise behind The Wedding Reporter is to reintroduce traditional storytelling methods to the myriad ways in which you can choose to document and remember your wedding day. You have so many pictures, a feature film and a memory box full of memento's – why would you overlook the opportunity to capture your greatest love story as precisely that, a story?

The trouble is, not everyone has the time, inclination or confidence to jot down the best day of their lives in literary detail. In fact, for some, it sounds like some sort of tortuous school task: “Write an essay on the subject of your wedding day in 10,000 words or less.”

Luckily, that’s where we come in. We actually attend your wedding day to experience firsthand all the minutiae of the day, from the atmosphere and ambience of your celebrations to the fleeting moments and tiny details that might pass you by in the whirlwind of getting married. You simply can’t be everywhere with everyone at once, so we’ll act as an objective pair of eyes to document everything for you.

It’s not just a chronicle of who said what and when, though. Your wedding report really is intended to be your own epic love story. We are, apart from anything, romantics at heart and as such, we view your day through the rosiest tinted spectacles. We write in a way that is intended to make you smile, provoke that lump in your throat and make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck, long after the clarity of your memories has faded.

That’s the thing about words, you see. They live inside your own imagination, invoking visions and memories that you hadn’t even thought about. When you look at a picture, you see only what is inside that frame. When you read a sentence, you are transported to a myriad of other places, times and scenarios. There’s a magical, transformative nature about reading and one that we hope will create a literary legacy of your wedding for many years to come.

We have read a few of Emma's wedding stories and completely agree, having a story of your wedding day to share is just beyond lovely, we hope some riverstation Bride and Grooms run with this very soon so we can hear a wedding story from our amazing venue!
