Kelly and Dan's Wedding at The Barn, West Farm, Southerndown

Kelly and Dan's Wedding at The Barn, West Farm, Southerndown

Here's a couple of images taken from Kelly and Dan's wedding at The Barn at West Farm. A new venue for me, with some stunning views across the coast at Southerndown and Ogmore-by-Sea, unfortunately, due to the weather we couldn't see any of them! Still didn't stop Kelly and Dan getting out onto the coastline to get some awesome shots despite the lovely Welsh Bank Holiday weather!

Thanks again for a great day!

Phil.

Rebecca and Mathew's Wedding at Llansantffraed Court Hotel, Abergavenny

Rebecca and Mathew's Wedding at Llansantffraed Court Hotel, Abergavenny

A few teaser photos from yesterday's wedding of Rebecca and Mathew Johnson. Despite it being bank holiday weekend the weather was amazing!

The ceremony was held at St Hilda's Church, Pontypool with the wedding breakfast and reception at Llansantffraed Court, Country House Hotel and Restaurant, Abergavenny.

Both venues were new  for me to shoot at, but they did not disappoint! Lovely spacious church with well maintained surrounding gardens and paths. The reception had some incredible areas for photos coupled with tastily decorated interiors and helpful and friendly staff. 

Congratulations both and thank you for an awesome day.

Phil.

A handful of photos of Ceinwen and Garry's wedding yesterday at the wonderful St. Martin's Church, Caerphilly, and Hensol Castle. It was a really Celtic gathering with Garry hailing from Ireland and Ceinwen from South Wales.

After the ceremony the wedding guests were treated to a selection of songs by the Tenovus Sing With Us Pontypridd choir before moving to Hensol Castle.

Congratulations both, thanks for an amazing day and have a great time on honeymoon!

Wedding Slideshow: Catherine and Kyle's Wedding at Bryngarw House, Bridgend

Wedding Slideshow: Catherine and Kyle's Wedding at Bryngarw House, Bridgend

The slideshows seem to be really popular amongst my happy couples, especially when the decision is made not to have a videographer for the day. 

The slideshow tells the story of the day in a simple 3-4 minute video, typically set to the first dance song, or similar.  It's really nice to be able to share with anyone, friends or family, as they are hosted on Vimeo/Youtube - they are always unlisted so it's as private/public as you want it to be!

Here's an example of one from my first wedding of 2017, Catherine and Kyle at Bryngarw House by Five Star Chef, Bridgend.

Catherine and Kyle's Wedding at Bryngarw House, Bridgend

Congratulations to good friends Cath and Kyle who tied the knot yesterday at Bryngarw House, Bridgend. I've known Kyle for some years so it was an honour to be part of his and Catherine's big day. It was my first wedding of the year and it really went off with a bang despite the horrific weather!

Thanks for an awesome day both, enjoy your honeymoon. Here are just a handful of images I took during the day, which started at 6.30am and didn't finish until 11:30pm!
