The lovely Jess & Paul became ‘Mr & Mrs’ on the 2nd of June. I was so excited for this wedding as it was packed full with the vintage theme- Right up my street! She and her family worked so hard to put all these beautiful details together. Along with many other things, they made the cupcakes which were divine, put together the bounteous sweetie bar and Jess MADE her bouquet!
I met the Bridal Party at the reception venue where they were staying in Elan Valley Hotel just past Rhayader town in Powys. These girls were so relaxed and laid back, it was great to hang out with them through the ‘getting ready’.
For the ceremony we headed to the quaint little church over looking the Elan Valley reservoir. This ancient church remains untouched from modernization. It was so stunning but this posed quite the challenge by not having any lighting and not being allowed to use flash for the majority of the time. The antique oil burners made a lovely atmospheric lighting though.
At the reception, we had great fun with the props and games around the hotel. There was croquet on the lawn, giant naughts & crosses, a huge american car cut out and, my favourite, the ‘photo booth’! This was an amazing wedding and all those who worked to put it together should be greatly commended!
The evening reception was absolutely buzzing (in the good way!). The swing band were on fire and really got the party going and on into the night. Apologies to anyone who has now got some rather incriminating shots. I will leave them in Paul & Jessica’s possession!
I hope you guys have had an amazing honeymoon and feel recouped after putting together such a gorgeous wedding! I wish you all the best for your future.
