Matt and Natasha

Weddings at Trevor Hall, Llangollen

Sometimes couples will say they’ve done a lot of their own decorations at their weddings. Sometimes they’ve put a few candles out, other times they will dress the venue. Natasha and Matt’s wedding was different-They did everything. And when I say everything, I mean everything!

From the candy cart (built from scratch by Matt) to the wedding cake (Natasha’s handiwork), the marquee, the flowers, the giant balloons, the wedding shoes (decorated by Natasha on the morning!), even the beer tent was their own marquee. Every vintage touch was bought from eBay, snapped up on Etsy, borrowed from friends or rummaged for at car boots and the effect was stunning! I don’t think I’ve ever shot a wedding where there’s been so much forward planning happening and so much attention to the minutest detail. Oh-And their DJ during their wedding breakfast was a gramophone DJ. Awesome stuff! :)

All this in the shadow of Trevor Hall-A venue with one of the most eclectic collections of curios I’ve ever seen and an incredibly cool place to get married (even when it rains non-stop!).

Congratulations to you both-It was a day to remember thanks entirely to your efforts and an amazing experience for Fresh!

The O’Bryans at The Imperial and Bodafon Farm

Clair and Tom, Llandudno, Imperial Hotel, Bodafon Farm. Could this have been the most laid-back wedding in the world? Having already got married in Australia, Clair and Tom headed to Clair’s locality to get a blessing in front of her home crowd-And what a day it was! What seemed like half of Oz came with them-Many staying for a month or more on extended breaks. Starting in the frankly MASSIVE St Pauls Church in Craig Y don, moving onto the Imperial Hotel in Llandudno for the wedding breakfast, then finishing up at Bodafon Farm for the evening. We had singing twins, lots of kilts, a groomsman trying to mount a lama (or failing that, a highland cow with 2ft horns), a stunning sunset with epic clouds and finally more beer than any wedding has ever consumed in the history of weddings. Awesome. :)

Long lost love found-The wedding of Liz and Chris

We love a good love story-especially considering what we do for a living. We’ve been good friends with Liz for a LONG time, and she used to talk about Chris over a bottle of WKD down in our local pub more than she’d probably like to remember. How they’d be together one day, how good looking she thought he was, amongst lots of other embarrassing things… Sorry Liz! :)

Surrounded by friends and family at the beautiful Caer Rhun Hall in the Conwy Valley Liz’s wish finally came true and she married the man she’d been wanting to be with for so many years. It was emotional to say the least and we wish Liz and Chris all the love, luck and happiness in the world for their future together. You make the most wonderful couple together and you both looked so happy to be together-even in the moments where you thought nobody was looking! :)

Bride and groom walking over hill

Kirsty and Phil get married. No, not THAT Kirsty and Phil…

When we were asked by a friend if we’d be interested in shooting the wedding of Kirsty and Phil we got incredibly excited. Then we realised it wasn’t THAT Kirsty and Phil. Not to say we weren’t excited about shooting ‘our’ Kirsty and Phil’s wedding-We were! It’s just that we kinda hoped that the famous house-selling TV couple had decided to use Fresh Photography to photograph their wedding. The coverage we would have got and the drama it would have created in the papers would be great publicity due to the fact that they’re already married to other people in the real world… :)


Anyway, I digress-The Kirsty and Phil we shot on their wedding day were probably the cutest couple we’ve ever met-The story of how they met was gorgeous as well!  Small, intimate weddings are always fun as you get to chat to everyone properly and you get a bit more time to shoot the couple themselves’. 


The wedding was held at the Faenol Fawr, the stunning flowers were by the rather wonderful Top Table Wedding Services and an amazing time was had by all! :)

Make your Happy New Year even happier by getting married!

When we say this is the first wedding of the year we really mean it. New Years Eve is always a special time for everybody-even more so when you decide to get married. At least you know that nobody’s going to forget your anniversary. :)

Fantastic weather, great crowd and a gorgeous bride and groom in one of North Wales’s most stunning venues. What a great way to kick off the year! Congratulations Nicola and Leigh!
