Destination wedding…of sorts. Well it’s Wales, so it’s feeling exotic!
From the couple…”Naomi, you are an absolute star!! I am a complete blubbering mess after watching our movie! Matt is wondering what he’s married!! (although he loved it too!) Thank you so much for capturing our day so beautifully!!”...
Matthew & Laura’s day was all relaxed and chilled with a smattering of traditional. I’d never been to Llanvihangel Court, let alone tried to say it out loud, so I was hoping I didn’t get lost and need directions! Ha! I found Laura at her folks house in the Welsh hills, down on of those lanes that you really hope you’ve got right and don’t need to back up! Having not met the girls before, I’m always a bit nervous going in but they were just so kind, welcoming and excitable (my favourite mix!).
They married at the same Church her parents married, which was very sweet and Llanvihangel Court was a stones throw away and was just beautiful! I think it’s a lived in Court. You couldn’t go inside but they hire the grounds out and they are b.e.a.uuuutiful! Everything a photographer needs with ponds, lake, long grassy wild areas and big purply bush things. Perfect! Only one child fell in the pond too, so not totally hazardous 😉
I’m also very stoked as one of the images from this wedding won an International Wedding Award! I was totally blown away and honoured to win a Wedisson Award and not that any of that matters but it is nice to be able to show my couples off sometimes!
Laura’s dress was gorgeous, Blue by Enzoani from Laura May Bridal. Flowers, I’ve a feeling the mum’s did a lot of them but the main displays and bouquets were from Hilary’s Floral Design. Caterers, Prickly Pear (delish!) and a very cool band The Scarletons to play them out the evening. Actually a quick shout out to The Hanging Latern Company. I’ve come across them several times and their laters absolutely transform rooms, so give them a look if you’re in planning stages.
Thank you so much for reading and interest in my work. I’m sorry for the lack of blog posts, the season is just crazy, but I’ll get there eventually! Please do let me know if you’re getting married, I’d love to hear about your day, Naomi x
