We've been so lucky with the weather this year and I couldn't be more happier than to be right here at St Fagans for today's wedding. Jen and Dan tied the knot hear in the glorious sunshine with all their friends and family. Everybody is awesome and I love that I click with couples the way that I do, we got to hang out at their engagement shoot a few weeks ago and that hasn't gone up yet so be give the me a follow on facebook and instagram to see those. I'm just about to sit down and get some grub with everyone but I always do a little on the day edit for couples to share a few images with friends and family who might not be able to make it to the wedding. Check it out below.
Nothing is stopping the laughter smiling and good vibes at today’s Cardiff Castle with Richard and Kelly. We’re in the heart of Wales’s capital and the feel good feeling is beaming through with everyone having an amazing time. It’s my second Cardiff Castle Wedding in as many weeks and it’s amazing to see how different and unique each one can be. It’s also nice to have some rich history around whilst making your own history tying the knot. The rain is part of wales much like the castle and nobody cares ( which is handy when your in Wales lol ) .I always put up a handful of images on the online gallery for friends and family who might not have been able to come and it’s also really nice for the evening guests to see a bit of the day ( although today everyone is here from the beginning.)
Having a wicked time at today’s wedding at Cardiff Castle. What a day it’s been already. I’ve been hanging out with Joe and Rezanne this morning where both parties have been so chilled out in the run up to the ceremony it’s been such a special day. I can’t wait for the evening now when everyone lets their hair down getting merry and throwing shapes on the dance floor it’s going to be awesome.
I'm just sitting down to have some food (I'm starving lol) after running around all day capturing all the moments of joy and happiness. I like to take a moment before eating to just go through and pick and edit a couple of favourites, they also go on a digital picture frame either near the bar or by the gift tables. It's a nice little touch for the evening guests to see a bit of the day and also so the couple can send them to any close friends and family that couldn't make it.
Bryngarw House is a lush wedding venue that looks pretty all year round. I've shot loads of amazing wedding days here and I always have a massive smile on face every time. The interior is open and spacious ( a wedding photographers dream!) and there are plenty of beautiful spots to take photos outside . I like to whisk the bride and groom away for a few minutes to shoot some slower moments. It's also a perfect opportunity for you both ( Bride and Groom) to take a moment and actually have 5 mins to chill out and soak it all in. I know on my wedding day I really appreciated that little moment alone.
I am offering a free couples - engagement shoot for two couples on Wed 9th May in Barcelona!
I figured, I'm already out there, why not shoot some awesome couples in a cool different place? It's obviously last minute ( the joys of documentary work lol) but if anyone would like to hang out and have a couples / engagement shoot just drop me a facebook message or email.
The weather hasn't put a dampener on Emma and Jonnie's wedding day. Our Barry bride has come back home to get hitched and what a day it's been. Growing up in Barry myself I captured Emma and her bridesmaids getting ready at her mums just around the corner I went to high school ( and started with photography). Here's a photo from their engagement shoot which was really fun and also shot in Barry. They're free with all my packages and a great way to connect before your wedding day.
We're having an awesome day at Canada Lodge and Lake for Chloe and Damien's wedding, everything has been absolutely stunning as you would expect for a Canada Lodge and Lake wedding. It seems like only yesterday we were hanging out in Barry for their engagement shoot. I've had an amazing time capturing their day, having a couple in love with each like these guys are, in such a laid back fun atmosphere makes me feel super lucky to do what I do.
With the end of the year come around quickly I thought I'd take a moment to see an extra special thank you to all the amazing couples that chose me as their wedding photographer or wedding videographer this year. I'd also like to say thank you to my awesome couples for nominating me for 'The Welsh Wedding Awards' - 'Videographer of the Year' 2018..
