Bristol {6}

English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge married Sarah Fricker at this church in 1795. Romantic poet Robert Southey too married Edith at this church the same year!

St.Mary Redcliffe, Bristol

Marvellous photograph, Ashwathy. One of the best in the series.
Very Vermeer-esque lighting.

Would you get married here as well ?

Beautiful image. Coleridge is one of my favorite poets especially with his RIme of the Ancient Mariner.

It's getting very romantic! Nice, nice! ... and extremely beautiful! The early church builders knew their job!

I feel lucky to see this since I have not visited the places. Church and romance, I start to beleive there is connection between the two
