Rachel & Tom

Aaaand we’re back!

What a pleasure to be shooting weddings again after this long postponement. I kicked my season off with the lovely Rachel & Tom. It was genuinely such a joy to be surrounded by celebration – a very safe, lateral flow tested celebration may I add!

I got to enjoy the beautiful backdrop of Tall John’s House once again. The sun was shining and the outdoor ceremony couldn’t have been on a better day. Although I did feel sorry for the boys in tweed … it’s the price you pay for looking dapper I suppose!

One of my favourite moments of the day was when I was arranging the girls for a photo outside the door of the main house. I said to get into ‘Goose Formation’ … y’know, the V formation when they fly … but I just thoroughly baffled them! I may not use that expression anymore!! (Is that a saying or did I just make that up?!)

Tom not only gained a wife but two beautiful little daughters on this wedding day! I have to admit, I didn’t realise this until later on in the day because there was so much love and care amongst them all. I love the photo below where the youngest takes hold of Tom’s hand because things were getting emotional during the speeches! What a gorgeous little family this is!

Thank you to Tom and Rachel for having me as your photographer. You gave me a wonderful day to capture! I wish you every happiness together!

 

Family fun time!

It’s such a lovely thing to be surrounded by a family who, although usually have great distances parting them, are so close.

The lovely Sian hired me to capture some family fun time before she had to head back with hubby and daughter to New Zealand.

I went to the family house in my local town of Knighton to photograph everyone together – playing croquet, frolicking in the stream and cycling with no stabilisers for the FIRST TIME!! It was great fun!

Here are the highlights…

Ceri & Ed

What a LUSH Bride and Groom I got for this wedding…they were serious fun!

I shot Ceri’s lovely sister’s wedding a few years ago, so it was great going back to a family I knew, with a few more cute wee additions!

Following tradition Ceri and Ed had the wedding at Carno Chapel with their tipi reception tent just a stones throw away. It was such a lovely relaxed day all being close together … In fact you can see the chapel, tent and family house in the background of their couple shots on the hill!

It was a pleasure to photograph a couple that were so close. ┬áCeri & Ed have been together for over 12 years and you can see that bond – an absolutely fab couple!

Highlights of the day for me were…

  • Ceri getting putting the ring on the wrong finger and having a laughing fit,
  • Ed getting a confetti bomb to the face (sorry Ed, but it was hilarious),
  • Ceri nearly went flying onto mud during the couple shots but she just laughed – What a gal!
  • Amazing bridesmaids – the big ones and little ones,
  • Night time face gems for everyone,
  • Some serious dance floor action!

All in all this was an absolute corker.

Congrats to Ceri & Ed – I wish you all the best with lots of laughs to come (although I think that’s a given with Ceri around)!
