I was looking forward to Emily & Nathan’s wedding so much, with all the postponing of weddings over the past 18 months, it’s been such a long wait for everyone and it’s so nice to finally see couples being able to say I Do! ….. and start to celebrate!
I spent the morning with Emily at her parent’s home, I always start with photographing all the details, and for me it’s one of the most nerve-wracking parts, transporting all of the essential bits to areas with better lighting and trying to avoid all hazards along the way! Well, on that morning I had their cat as an assistant while I was photographing the dress….. you can imagine my anxiety as it climbed on top of the archway ready to jump onto the dress…. oh my, can you imagine! Luckily she leaped onto a nearby bush and I was able to let out a big sigh of relief, take the photos then quickly get the dress back inside!
Nathan was getting ready at his parent’s house, which luckily was only a few minutes away so I was able to get some of him getting ready with his brother and then get back in time for Emily getting her dress on. It was absolutely stunning, with delicate embroidery over fine layers of tulle that elegantly fell to the floor.
Emily arrived in style at St. David’s Church in the 1965 Bentley S3 from Chester Wedding Cars. They were married in a beautiful catholic ceremony and then celebrated the day away with their loved ones at Plas Hafod Hotel. Lots of happy tears were shed, especially through the speeches which even had me mopping my eyes as I struggled to see behind the camera… once the Groom goes, or the Dads, then that’s me…I’m gone too!
And to finish a perfect day, as the sun set, they drank, laughed, and danced the night away!
Thank you so much for asking me to be your photographer and capture your special day, I wish you all the love and happiness in your life together.
