My first blog back for some time, and what a belter of a wedding to quick it off with. Hayley and Colt's wedding was just fab - thankfully we largely missed most of the horrendous December weather and came away with some absolutely beautiful images. You'd never tell looking through the pics here !

I started out at the Hayley's parents home where Colt and his groomsmen were getting ready for the day ahead before making my way to the Cawdor to capture the bridal party's preparations. Following a beautiful service I took the newly weds to some spots in the town immediately around the venue where we got some beautiful timeless images for them to cherish forever.  You'd never had said that mother nature was doing what she does best in Wales - tipping water from the sky all day !!

Anyhow, your here to see how their day unfolded, take a peek at the 100 or so images below. 

Hope you like what you see, thanks for looking ...

I don’t know where to begin in trying to summarise this awesome day into one or two short paragraphs - it just won't do it justice.  Do I talk about the the sheer magnitude of having 150+ friends and loved ones together to celebrate, the newsworthy best man’s speech that was reported in print and radio – I just don’t know where to start !! 

The forecast for Halloween was not exactly 'ideal wedding weather', but thankfully, despite the ‘bad news’ presented by the weather experts  Mother Nature held off long enough to ensure Jon and I were able to get everything we needed.  We started out by both making our way to the luxurious Fairyhill Venue, nestled within the greenery of the Gower, where I covered Alex and her bridal party’s preparations and Jon saw to Gav and his groomsmen. Following a beautiful service held within the glass walled reception room, we set about capturing many timeless images of the couple with their nearest and dearest.  As I alluded to earlier, after the delight...

Ah man ... what a day ! Despite Mother Nature doing her very best to hamper proceedings Natalie and Shaun's big day was epic !  The intermittent heavy rain actually allowed me to get some fairly unique shots - more on that later - scroll down and you'll see.  I worked fast between frequent showers to make sure I came away with everything I needed so those memories could be captured forever. 

Anyhow, it was my first time at Jabajak - a unique vineyard set unexpectedly in deepest rural western Carmarthenshire - it was a treat.  I just couldn't resist capturing as many pics as I could of the couple and their guest in front of the beautiful gnarly vines.  It was truly an awesome day as you'll see from checking out the 100+ pics from the couple's day.

After Becky and Alex's awesome pre-wedding shoot (click here) I couldn't wait to cover their big day.  Despite Mother Nature's efforts at giving us a wet September day Jon and I made the most of sunny interludes to get some absolutely beautiful images the couple can cherish forever.  We set off for the beautiful  Oxwich Bay Hotel, I made my way to school house where I documented Becky and her bridal party's preparation whilst Jon covered Alex and his groomsmen's prep.  Following the formal service and some touching readings the wedding party made its way into the marquee which had been dressed amazingly.  After the well wishing speeches and some amusing images shown Jon and I took the couple to the beach just before the sun disappeared - I'm overjoyed with what we came away with ! 

Anyway at the risk of rambling on, you're here to see the pics - here's a 100+ from their awesome day ! Thanks for looking,

After covering Emma and Anthony's pre-wedding shoot (here), I just knew their big day was going to be an absolute hoot !  The forecast did not look promising, but Mother Nature put on a warm and sunny September day smack bang in the middle of what was a stormy week.  As you'll see from the pics, the light was just wonderful, particularly as it fell lower in the sky casting dream-like pockets and haze through the wooded areas in around the superb Bryngarw House venue.  The early morning light flood beautiful through the room where Emma and her bridal party were preparing too, and as Anthony and his groomsmen arrived, I was able to get some beautiful natural shots of them too.  Following their service and some emotional speeches, we headed off for a short 20 minute walk which yielded some absolutely beautiful images - I love them ! Oh yeah, and man, did their guest like to dance - take a peek ...

Anyway I'll stop rambling now as you're here to see some pics from their...

I just had to a share a few beautiful images from this awesome family shoot in All Nant Y Ci in Ammanford.  Autumn wasn't quite yet on full display but none the less we managed to capture some lovely colours in the background behind this beautiful family.  

I absolutely can't wait to shoot Laura & Martin's wedding next July - it's gonna be awesome !

Laura and Nathan's wedding at Plas Hyfryd, Narberth was an absolutely awesome celebration ! 

Thankfully, the forecasted early early September rain largely stayed away ! 

I started off by covering Laura and her bridal party's preparations at the hotel, before moving downstairs to shoot a few frames of Nathan and his groomsmen.  Following a beautiful ceremony, we made full use of a break in the weather to take all of the formal group shots immediately across the road from the venue.  After the food and speeches Laura, Nath and I made our way to Narberth Castle for some couple portraits as the sun was getting lower in the sky.

I had an absolute ball covering their day, and am most proud that I was trusted to have covered another Laura's sisters wedding as well (link here).  Anyhow, at the risk of rambling on check out the 100+ frames below which should give you a good feel for how the day unfolded.  Hope you like what you see - thanks for looking ...

Here's another beautiful August Wedding hitting the blog ! Lowri and Scott's day was absolutely awesome.  I started off at Lowri's parents house where her bridal party and beautiful little daughter Aria were getting ready.  Following a short car ride to the White Hart Inn in Llandeilo I caught up with Scott, his grooms men and the couple's guests arriving.  After a touching service, I took some pics of the couple with their family in a beautiful little corner with ever so colourful berries nicely hanging down framing the images.  There was a beautiful sunset, so just before the sun disappeared I took the couple to a field near the venue where we got some fantastically lit portraits.  Anyhow at the risk of rambling on, here are a hundred or so frames from their day - should give you a good idea how the day unfolded ...

I was delighted when Jen and Mike asked me to cover their beautiful wedding.  Jen had been a bridesmaid at a wedding I'd shot a year previous and I'm so humbled that she loved what I did so much that booked me for her own big day.  It was a beautiful and warm August day, and I thoroughly enjoyed the journey through eastern Wales as I travelled to Malvern, shadowed by its spectacular hills over looking the town.  Following a touching marriage service, I took some group shots in and around the established gardens of the priory now registry office before going to 'Mike's Secret Spot'.  Mike took us to a field in the village where he grew up and I shot the couple in amongst the crops ... loved it !  We then made our way to the Live and Let Live in Bringsty, a characterful and ancient watering spot - an absolute perfect location for the couple to celebrate their momentous occasion with their guests.  

It was a fantastic day ! Check the 100 or so pics below which shou...

Steve and Sharon's day was just awesome ! It was a hot, bright and sunny July's day which made for an excellent start for the couple's special day.  I made my way straight to Norton House to capture Sharon and her bridal party preparing for the day ahead, whilst sneaking back and forth outside to capture the arrival of Steve and some guests.  Following a beautiful service, we headed outside for some group shots before hitting the dunes of Swansea Bay for a few more pics of the couple.  It was an absolutely fabulously relaxed day that really shines through in the pics.  At the risk on rambling on, I'll let you check out the 100+ pics below which should give a good feel for how the day unfolded.  Hope you guys like what you see,  thanks for looking ...
