This past weekend I got to photograph a lovely local couple, Claire & Wayne. I started out with the boys … laughed while watching them youtube every step of getting ready and after they conquered looking dapper, I went and joined the girls at Fishmore Hall in Ludlow!
After a chilled out morning and a relaxed ceremony, we ventured up to one of the most stunning views to be had around these parts – Clee Hill!
Claire & Wayne nailed their couple shots, as you will see 🙂 They were absolutely great – although their entourage just couldn’t handle the heat with the PDA’s!
A truly delightful couple though, and I wish them every happiness in their wedded bliss!
Well, what a corker of a wedding! On Saturday the 8th of September, I had the pleasure of photographing Zoe & Peter Rees on their big day.
I was really touched at how much of a close knit family this was … it felt like they were all integrated into each others clans – That’s how families should be!
So, I joined the girls at the beautiful Gregynog Hall for getting ready shots and after a morning of drooling over Zoe’s fabulous dress (not literally may I add…) we headed to Machynlleth for St Peter’s church.
It was absolutely CHUCKING it down in true welsh style but that did not dampen our spirits (pardon the pun)! Once we were back at Gregynog for photos, we made the most of the various rooms and got some cracking shots in the library … it felt like I was on the set of a bridal magazine shoot!
We did get some pics outside in the end, messed around with doughnuts – as ya do – everyone ate, drank and was rather merry (not the photographer though) and partied into the night!
On the 18th of August I got to photograph a delightfully vintage, country wedding down in Bryngwyn, Monmouthshire. For a couple that had only ever lived 5 miles apart, it seemed only right to have the ceremony to the reception less than 5 minutes apart!
Our horse-riding Bride was getting ready at the family home where I got to see all her awards from riding competitions – it felt appropriate to use them as a prop – especially her recent HOYS 1st prize! Ooo-ee! Sadly, her gorgeous horse was not around for photos 🙁
There was a LOT of fun after the ceremony. The groomsmen were on form with their poses, they completely lost it during the dual best-man speech and later on into the evening … well, lets just say they got a bit handsy with the Groom!
Tom & Samantha were a beautiful couple to photograph and really lovely people. It was a pleasure to be your photographer guys – thank you!
