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 ...

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.

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 ...

Yaaaaaassss - wedding season is back ! Beth and Leighton's big day at Broadway Housed, Laugharne was my first of the 2019 wedding season and what a belter it was too !  I started off by literally driving 250 yards around the corner to the couple's home to capture Beth and her bridal party getting ready for the day ahead. Meanwhile, Jon headed to Leighton's parents house in Ystradgynlais where he and his best man were likewise getting ready.  Following the preparations, Jon and I made our way to Broadway and captured this beautiful day as it unfolded.  It was absolutely fab, I won't keep going - I'll let the photos speak for themselves, there's a 100+ images below which should give you a good feel for the day - after all you're here to look at pics !

What an awesome day ! Just don't know where to start describing how awesome Anthony and Josh's wedding was at the Corran Resort & Spa near Laugharne.  I'll start by saying that they are definitely fun loving ! I started the cover in Haverfordwest where Josh and his fantastic family (who were a real barrel of laughs all day!!) at Colours Salon before heading over to Anthony's Mam and Dad's house around the corner where he was getting ready.  Following the preparations I made my way to Laugharne to cover the ceremony and after party.  Thankfully the weather remained fairly good throughout the day that enabled me to get the sample of photos below.  I had an absolute ball - what a wonderful day - wonderful people...

Here's a 100 or so images from their day which gives a good idea how their wedding unfolded.  Hope you like what you see, thanks for looking ...

Well ble allai dechrau ? Dydd hyfryd - popeth - y tywydd, y lle, y pobl - popeth yn gyfan. In the intrest of inclusion I'll carry on in English, despite this wedding being conducted entirely in my mother tongue.  

I started the day in god's country - my home village of Brynamman where Cerys and her bridal party were getting ready - I miss it so much - hiraeth ! Following the preparations I made my way down to St Catherine's Church where Huw and his groomsmen were ushering guests into the church.  Following a beautiful ceremony, we stopped at the top of the Black Mountain near Tro'r Gwcw before making ur way to Caerhyn Farm Venue - man - what a place - this is going to get very popular indeed, rustic, beautiful, awesome view - great owners - all the right ingredients. 

Anyhow, I'll let the pics speak for themselves - it was an absolutely fan-bloody-tastic wedding.
