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 had fantastic time with the amazing Claire and Toby today on their pre-wedding shoot. It was really cold and the wind was fairly gusty so we abandoned the idea of a walk on the beach (at sunny Rhyl) and took shelter at Rhyl Yacht Club with the kind permission of one of the members (a big thank you). Claire and Toby will be married at Oriel House on 13 August this year but given that they live so far away, the only practical day to meet up for the pre-wedding was today. Guys, you looked amazing and your energy and sense of humour was most welcome on a day like this. I’m looking forward to your wedding …
Here are a few of the images from today:

A big congratulations to the lovely Lowri & Kevin who will be married on 22nd October, 2011 at St Matthews Church, Buckley, and will have their reception at Northop Hall. It was pleasure to meet you both this evening and I’m really looking forward to your wedding.
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’).
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:
