Rasha & Mo - St Davids Hotel Wedding

Rasha & Mo

3rd February 2019 – St Davids Hotel

 

I was delighted to photograph Rasha & Mo’s wonderful wedding. Their day brought together amazing cultural traditions as the two families mixed to celebrate!  They only got engaged in November 2018 so organised the wedding in under three months and it was wonderful. I’ve gone through their images and made a selection that shows their special day.

 


HIGHLIGHTS OF 2018

Well, where do I start! I thought 2016 was an extremely busy year as I worked and welcomed the arrival of our second daughter Penelope, but I was wrong! 2018 sure topped the craziness by 100%

In 2018 I managed to shoot 18 beautiful weddings,20 commercial shoots, 12 portrait shoots, and 6 e-shoots, have a third baby and move house! Not to mention it was the HOTTEST Summer since 1976 – but I did it and I’m so so pleased. I’ve been running my photography business for 6 years now, I can’t believe where the time has gone. I have always worked from a desk in the dining room which has had its challenges as being right in the middle of the house, it’s hard to get quiet time to get on with it all. In our new home I’m so pleased to have my own office space where I can have my work on the wall, files on shelves and albums out to view. It’s amazing how having a creative work space can help with mindset, motivation and personal development.

As I’ve been looking back through last years images, I have been thinking again as to how thankful I am to all of the couples who have booked me to capture their special day. I know I say it each year, on each new highlights post, but I really do mean it. Being able to photograph people going about their lives is a dream come true. Photographs are so important. They are important to us now, but they will be treasured even more in years to come by our children’s children.

I have carefully selected (way to many) images to share with you from 2018. I tried to cut it down, but it was too difficult! So here they are, all 274 of them! I have a couple of weeks off weddings now, it’s a great time to update my website, order new albums and meet up with my photographer friends before we start another crazy season. It’s also wonderful to have free weekends to spend with my family. 2019 is going to be a special year for us too as we are getting married in August. It’s going to be wonderful being the bride and groom for a change! Just to think this time next year as I will be writing my 2019 highlight’s blog as a married woman!

Here’s to what 2019 has in store!

2017 Highlights

2017 Highlights

 

Well, where do I start? Once again, I cannot believe where the year has gone – maybe it’s because I had another child thrown into the madness! 2017 has been yet another incredible year for me and my photography. I’ve spent a crazy amount of hours in the car driving here, there and everywhere. I’ve witnessed 27 couples say ‘I do’.  I’ve seen tears of sadness and of joy teamed with nerves and excitement. I’ve assisted with button holes, sewn up a bridesmaids dress and transferred guests from church to reception venue! Not to mention taken thousands of images and eaten a fair amount of three course meals and wedding cake! It really has been a ball! (Ooh, and went to a rave in an Italian castle with the bridal party the night before the wedding!)

 

 

None of this is possible without the couples that book me to capture and be part of their wedding day. It’s taken me so long to select my favourites for 2017, there are literally thousands to choose from. But here they are!

Love and best wishes to you lovely lot!

Venice Wedding Photography

Venice Wedding Photography

 

Back in 2015, yes 2015! Rachel and I went to Venice to photograph two beautiful couples. It was June, very clammy and warm which brought heavy rain and thunder at times! We spent 3 days walking the streets of Venice capturing gorgeous images of our lovely couples in the most beautiful locations. Venice is so colourful and pretty it offers such amazing back drops for images.

I’m super excited to share with you these images from our adventure. If you’re planing your wedding abroad, I’d love to hear from you. My camera will travel anywhere!

LAKE GARDA WEDDING - SCALIGERO CASTLE - GEMMA AND ANDREW

 Gemma & Andrew’s Lake Garda Wedding

11th June 2017

 I met Gemma & Andrew just over a year ago and was delighted when they chose to invite me to Italy to photograph their special day.  They got married outside on the roof terrace of Malcesine Castle over looking Lake Garda, the views are incredible. They were so fortunate to have a scorcher of a day!

Gemma and her Dad had a fun journey to the castle on a tuc tuc through the quaint cobbled lanes, whilst Andrew and the wedding guests enjoyed music on the terrace awaiting her arrival.  Following the service, the bride and groom had the tuc tuc ride to the side of the lake where the prosecco flowed and pizza and parmesan was in abundance.

We then all walked to the harbour and took a boat ride to La Voglia restaurant for yet more food (five courses! and more prosecco)  When we arrived at the jetty, the bride and groom were greeted by local children that had picked wild flowers and made a home made card for the newlyweds – such a sweet and thoughtful gesture.

I was in my element photographing the day, everywhere you look is beautiful, the landscapes are breathtaking.  I was very excited to look through the day’s images, and put together a small selection that tell the story. I simply cannot wait to go back! ~ Sian
