Jules & Craig - wedding Penarth

Jules & Craig

Wedding 14th March – Penarth

I was honoured to photograph the marriage of Jules & Craig last month. It was an intimate wedding at West House Penarth then on to ETC Penarth for drinks food and celebrations. I’ve worked with Jules many times over the years because he his a local florist so it was so lovely to see him get married! Here are a selection of images from their special day.

 


LAURA & IEUAN - ROSEDEW FARM WEDDING

 

 

 

Laura & Ieuan – 11th April 2018

Rosedew Farm

I first met with Laura, Ieuan and their beautiful daughters 8 months before their big day! They told me of all the fine details, how they plan to decorate the barn and that their day will have a lot of children so lots of fun activities for them to keep busy, hence the bouncy castle!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Jade & Owain Wedding - The Stonemill Monmouth

 

 

Jade & Owain

28th July 2017

The Rolls of Monmouth – The Stonemill Monmouth

 

I met with Jade and Owain a year before their wedding at the very place that they met each other, Starbucks! They told me the story of how Jade was out shopping with her Mum and needed a break so left her to it and popped for a coffee. After searching for a seat, she asked this lovely man (Owain!) if she could sit opposite him, and so they got talking and the rest is history!  Jade is very creative and had plans to make so many crafts – they looked amazing. They were planning a colourful, fun, relaxed day with a huge guest list. It was clear Jade & Owain’s wedding was going to be a crazy fun day!

We had an e-shoot a couple of months before the wedding that involved their gorgeous dog Charlie. E-shoots are a perfect opportunity to get to know a couple and their relationship. And for them to get to know how I work too.

It’s amazing how quickly a year can pass from their first meet up. We got together again (at Starbucks) to go through the final details of the day. Crafts were well underway! Stag and hen do’s were imminent and the wedding was only weeks away. The wedding day arrived and I made my way to The Stonemill’s beautiful cottages where all of the bridal party were getting ready. It had been raining so it was a bit damp, but the light perfect!

The groom and groomsmen looked wonderful in their navy suits and pink ties. Jade wore a stunning lace dress from Laura May Bridal http://lauramaybridal.co.uk and the bridesmaids were in gorgeous white bead-embellished dresses. Jade and Owain’s day was full of fun, laughter and lots of gin and rum from start to finish. So much to capture! Jade is a very talented cake baker and runs her own cake making business along side her teaching career https://www.theprettycakecorner.com so naturally, she designed and made the wedding cake!

I’ve selected my favourites from Jade and Owain’s wedding to share with you – enjoy!

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!

MELISSA & JAMES - HENSOL CASTLE WEDDING

Melissa & James – Hensol Castle

8th July 2017

On Saturday I had the absolute pleasure of capturing Mel & Jimmy tie the knot! It was slightly overcast which was perfect (for photography!) and a little cooler than it has been recently which was also ideal! Mel & Jimmy got married in a beautiful church just outside the centre of Cardiff. It’s a church I have never been to before and always driven past and thought about how pretty it is and how I’d like to capture a wedding there one day.  It was a very colourful wedding! There was a mix of colours in the bouquets, the grooms mens ties, the table decorations and a cake to die for!

After the service, a red double decker London bus took the guests to Hensol Castle where they were to celebrate the rest of the day – lots of beer and prosecco for the journey too! At Hensol Castle everyone was welcomed with more drinks, this really helped to get the party started. It was clear that Mel & Jimmy were surrounded by their loved ones as there so was so much warmth and happiness filling the rooms of the castle.

Not long before I left, I took Mel & Jimmy to the jetty on the lake to have some time out together before the evening party started. I must be honest I do love photographing each ‘section’ of a wedding day. But one of my favourite parts of the day is when I whisk the couple away for 20 minutes in the evening to create some beautiful images of them together.  During the Summer months the air is cooler at this time and if we’ve been lucky to have a sunny day, we have a sunset and soft low light to work with. But most of all, it’s important that they get this time together just to have a breather and talk away from the guests, just for a short time. The day goes so quickly, and in such a flash, that they wouldn’t get this precious time If I did’t suggest it.

I have gone through the day’s images and chosen a few to share! Enjoy.


ENGAGEMENT SHOOT CARDIFF - GEMMA & ANDREW

In eight weeks, I will be flying out to Italy to photograph Gemma and Andrews wedding. They will be declaring their love for one another in a beautiful castle at Lake Garda! We went out one evening this week to capture some images before the big day. It was quite warm and sunny during the day and unfortunately by the time we met for the shoot, the sun had gone behind the clouds and it was a bit chilly! But that didn’t matter as we walked through Alexandra Gardens in the centre of Cardiff. The blossoms were such a stunning backdrop for the couple. We’re very excited for the wedding now!
