I travelled up into the breathtaking countryside of Llangedwyn, Oswestry in Wales to shoot the wedding of Pauline & Richard. On the 12th of April I arrived at this rather stunning Country House called Plas Uchaf where the bride was getting ready and the ceremony was going to take place later that afternoon.
When I entered the bridal suite, Pauline was surrounded by her doting bridesmaids made up of her three closest friends, her soon to be step daughter and her own little daughter Ellie. My favourite part of that morning was capturing the reaction of her three children seeing their mum in her gorgeous wedding dress as she invited them in to the room one by one. Ellie, bless her cottons, burst into tears…in a good way!
During the course of the morning, I also had chance to pop up to Rhoslan – the family farm where the reception was to take place – where Richard was getting ready and, of course, feeding the animals!
The ceremony was a wonderfully intimate affair with less than 40 fitting into the main hall. Pauline, following her bridesmaids, came down the staircase to meet Richard and become his wife.
The reception was held on Pauline’s family farm. Sat cosily in the yard, between the house and the cattle, the marquee was beautifully decorated and the unique centre pieces for the tables were a great idea – Wellie Vases! I love the feel of a wedding when it’s held in a location of great attachment to the couple. Things seem so relaxed and homely. There was a lot of love in the atmosphere anyway!
All the women were asked to bring wellies to don for the ladies group shot and being in the hub of the farming community, they all came fully equipped and raring to flash their fancy footwear! They were all such good fun!
There was so much laughter throughout the day. Pauline was one of the most happy brides to be around and anyone who sees Pauline and Richard together can immediately tell their love for one another- they’re such a delightful couple! I wish you both all the best in married life together!
