It’s not quite spring, but it felt like spring to me. It rained a little in the morning and it was fairly dull and dark, but all was bright at the Wild Pheasant Hotel Llangollen. It was busy busy busy, with Becky and Greig’s family and friends milling around, getting ready and doing the various other things that people do on the morning of a wedding. Becky and Greig were calm though. The people were lovely, especially the mums of the bride and groom. The afternoon cleared into fine winter sunshine and Becky and Greig were happy to try pretty much anything I suggested to them and we had an amazing time. I think you’ll agree that they both looked amazing. Thank you guys for asking me to photograph your wedding. I had a fast paced but amazing day.
I swear there were times when the rain seemed to fall horizontally. It was really cold and it was certainly very wet, and this was echoed somewhat by the recital of the Christmas carol ‘In the bleak midwinter’ by one of the little bride’s maids. But there was nothing bleak about Laura and Rich’s wedding. This may seem like an understatement, but Laura and Rich are two of the nicest people. They come across as two of life’s good guys. From what I could see, Laura is a bright, sociable and good looking person, and Rich, a good looking chap who is every bit a gentleman. They say that ‘like attracts like’ and this seems to be the case for Laura and Rich in terms of their friends and family – lovely people. No, the rain didn’t dampen the atmosphere which was fantastic. Laura and Rich, you both looked stunning and I loved every minute of your wedding (and of course, I’d love to hear more about ‘fireman incident No 1’ and ‘Fireman Incident No 2’).
For some, it was just another cold December’s day, but not for those who attended Gina and Chris’ wedding at Ruthin Castle. I’m not just talking about the mild weather, but the warmth and the kindness of the people I met. It’s obvious that Gina and Chris were just made for each other; it’s obvious that their friends and family love them very much. It was a small wedding but one with a big heart. Gina and Chris are a lovely couple. Thank you for asking me to photograph your wedding. It was a privilage mixing with such lovely people. You looked amazing!

This is the third post in the series of my summer reflections, and let me introduce you to Erica and Simon who were married on 24th July, 2010 at St Hilary’s Church Llandudno, and then on to the Imperial Hotel. Each wedding is different. Each wedding is a challenge in it’s own right, not only to get things technically right, but also to tell a story photographically, and artistically; to capture the feel of it and not just a series of pictures. This isn’t too hard if you become involved (just enough). It certainly wasn’t hard in Erica and Simon’s wedding. Erica and Simon are two amazing people, and so too were their friends and family. Take a look at some of their pictures:
This is the second of my reflections this on summer’s weddings. This one features Leeane and Steve who got married on 9th May, 2010 at the Guild Hall Conwy and their portraits were taken at Conwy Castle. This was a small but very stylish wedding, and again, this was all the more memorable because, as you’ll agree, they looked amazing:
Winter has arrived and the weddings have slowed down until December. I’m booked up throughout December so I thought I’d spend the next few weeks reflecting on some of this summer’s weddings. This is partly because I’ve changed my website, and have only recently started blogging so I want to make some of my pictures more visible to the couples who are planning their wedding, and also because I had such an amazing time.
It’s been a very busy summer where I’ve had the privilege of photographing an array of weddings with some amazing people, in some amazing locations. It really is a privilege to photograph a wedding. It is often described as the best day of your life, and to be chosen to spend that day with you; to capture the atmosphere and moments; the people and places; the laughter and the tears; to be immersed in the whole feel of the day (which is what I try to do), really is a privilege.
I’d like to start off with Bodelwyddan Castle and a couple that were married there this summer. Emma and Nathan, were married at Bodelwyddan Castle on 5th June, 2010, and then onto the Quay Hotel at Deganwy:
And then to the Quay Hotel Deganwy.
I was honoured with being asked to photograph Sian & Tom’s wedding on the 28th of October. After the ceremony they made their way back to Rhydonnen (Sian’s family home) for some photos – I had the most amazing time with them. They not only looked fantastic but they were happy to try pretty much anything I suggested end even suggested some of the shots themselves. I will post more on this wedding (including the amazing story of how they met) in a couple of weeks. In the mean time, here is a sneak preview of some of the pictures. I think you’ll agree that they look fantastic:
