Lydia & Dafydd - St Donats Castle Wedding Photos Llantwit Major

St Donats Castle Wedding Photos Llantwit Major

Lydia & Dafydd were married last September, here is a small selection of their St Donats Castle Wedding photos Llantwit Major.

Lydia & Dafydd a lovely couple living in Cardiff booked myself to shoot their wedding in September 2016. They got married at St Donats Castle, a truly stunning venue on the coast of South Wales UK. The couple are both Doctors so live extremely stressful & busy lives but I couldn’t have met a more relaxing couple than Lydia & Daf. They were so chilled regarding the whole day I noticed this from day 1 along with the difference in height between the pair, something we had a little joke about. With the guys having open minds to how we were to photograph the wedding day made my job so much easier. With a large wedding party & a tight time schedule, we made sure we(Lydia,Daf & Myself) all new what we were going to shoot & when.

A warm day but with sea breeze winds meant it was perfect for all, from myself capturing the day, to the guest sat down enjoying canapé’s & drinks & most importantly the bride & groom. All in all an absolute joy to work with.

Check out the selection of photos below…

Alana & Matt - Oxwich Bay Wedding Photos Swansea

Oxwich Bay Wedding Photos Swansea

Alana & Matt were married August 2016, here are a small selection of their Oxwich Bay wedding photos Swansea.

When a couple mention Oxwich Bay & August, what better way to spend a day than photographing a wedding next to a beach on what you hope will be a sunny day. The day arrived & it was a cracker! Sunshine from the moment we arrived at Oxwich Bay to the sun setting whilst shooting the bride & groom’s portraiture on the beach. Alana & Matt were up for absolutely anything in terms of photography so we got a real mix of documentary work along with some formal group shots & also the infamous lift your dress bum shot!!!! (not included : ). For a couple to totally hand the trust over to myself to record those special moments is a dream & you totally get the best from us then. Bridal prep began in what became a cozy room with several bridesmaids, Alana’s kids myself & Adam(2nd shooter) & 2 fab videographers which made it all the more fun. Tears shed in the room with Dad’s arrival & the constant giggling & laughter between the girls throughout the day I knew it was going to be a roller coaster of emotions for the bridal party & guests.

Alana & Matt’s Oxwich Bay wedding day didn’t disappoint! Love, laughter & a few tears were all experienced on this sunny day in August.

Porthmawr Country House Wedding Photos Abergavenny

 

Gwen & Mike were married August this year, here are their Porthmawr Country House Wedding Photos Abergavenny

Gwen contacted myself some time back after seeing another wedding I’d shot at Porthmawr Country House back in 2014. A similar time of year wedding, really helped Gwen to see what I could produce on a summers day & at this beautiful venue. We had an interesting mix of weather come the day, rain, a little sleet believe it or not( it is Wales tho!!!! ) & some sunshine.

Starting with bridal prep at the reception venue is always great as it refreshes the mind of whats where, we can also decide if I hadn’t already where to do group shots etc. The service was at a beautiful chapel not too far away where we met the lovely Mike & his groomsmen after finishing bridal prep with Gwen & the girls. As most chapel services are, the minister taking the service was so relaxed with photography side of things which is such a help……team effort & all! We shot the service throughout but still in a respectful manner. After Gwen & Mike tied the knot we had chance to nip up to the mountain that overlooks the Brecon beacons meaning I didn’t want to leave. Beautiful light & beautiful views………photographers dream : ) Eventually we had to get back to Porthmawr County House to crack on with the group shots, speeches, portraiture & general feel of the wedding day along with food & speeches. Once over we headed down into the town of Crickhowell for some late evening portraits with Gwen & Mike, something I love to do if we have the time. All in all it’s been one of my favourite weddings this year x
