Emily & Darren’s wedding was my last to photograph in 2016 before I stopped to have baby Penelope! It was a scorching August day, the sun was shining and the birds were singing (and so were the guests) It was so much fun to have the bride and groom along with their guests sing their hearts out to “Summer loving” and “Time of my life” during the service!  It was beautiful from start to finish. Being 37 weeks pregnant, I had the support of a second photographer Jonathan Alec Cross-Jones – which I needed particularly during the speeches as at this point it was super hot and I had swollen feet!

Llanerch Vineyard is hidden away in The Vale Of Glamorgan, and what a stunning place it is. When you see the rows of vines in full bloom at this time of the year, you can’t believe you’re in Wales.

We saved going into the vineyard for photographs until the evening when the sun was a bit lower and cooler. It’s the perfect time to create these moments and for the bride and groom to have a bit of time together to talk about the fact they have just got married as the day does go so quickly.  It’s taken me a while to select my favourites from the day as there are so many, but here are a few!

Emily and Darren had such a fun day with all of their friends, family and gorgeous one year old son. There was so much to capture, beautiful details – I loved Emily’s lace dress! Gorgeous flowers and cake, and table decorations.
