What other word could I use to describe Kay and Owens wedding other than WOW! Although we didn't have the best weather for photos outside (it hailed.. in July!!) we did manage to get a few and luckily the location for the reception had gorgeous areas we could photograph inside!
I began the day with Kay and all 8 of her gorgeous bridesmaids, in Cei Bach, West Wales. All bridesmaids were all so easy to photograph and have a chat to, I felt instantly at ease with them all! There was not one bit of stress in the air and exactly the type of atmosphere you would want before your big day!
By 11am I then went onto photograph Owen and his best men, once myself and my friend, Georgia who was helping me out photographing the wedding, had arrived at the Llanina Arms where the boys were staying the first thing we had to do was put our cameras down and do 5 ties for them!!
Nothing says a wedding like the bride being slightly late, it just wouldn't be right?? Once Kay had arrived we all made our way down to the gorgeous church of Henfenyw. This church is only small but absolutely stunning and is perfect for a small guest list. Once there, she made her entrance elegantly with her brother giving her away.
After the ceremony we made our way outside to get some shots of the bride and groom with family, friends, bridesmaids, ushers etc whilst in the middle of photographing these shots we heard the thunder. SO we quickly wrapped it up before the rain came, and my goodness it came down! - a very typical Welsh summers day, cold, raining and gloomy. Whilst driving from Henfenyw to the Llanina Arms we had torrential rain and hail, once we arrived we had sunshine! This drive is only 3.1 miles and lasts only 6 minutes! But thankfully the sun stayed with us all evening therefore the mechanical bull was a hit out the back of the function room!
Once Kay and Owen had cut the cake (which was delicious by the way!!) had had danced their first dance the evening was in full swing and was full of dancing, chatting, singing and drinking! The photobooth went down a treat and the props were very popular!
I thoroughly enjoyed photographing Kay and Owens wedding, as I know them both previous to the wedding it was wonderful to see two people who are so perfect for each other unite with all their family and friends present.
Thank you very much to both of you for asking me to photograph your wedding, I am truly honoured.
Diolch, Em x
