Kelly and Craig at Caer Rhun Hall, Conwy Valley

Wedding Photographer North Wales

Moody skies, a custom deck of fantasy cards and lot of big trees! Kelly and Craig will officially be our last ever wedding at the rather splendid and grand Caer Rhun Hall in the Conwy Valley-What a way to remember the place as well! Great weather, amazing guests and a first dance to look back at and chuckle about. ;)

We already knew Kelly (and bridesmaid Beth) having shot her dad’s wedding a few years ago (thanks for the recommendation Colin!), so it was an incredibly relaxed experience for us. Starting with the ladies getting their hair put up in Enigma in Llandudno in the morning while Phil got the job of shooting the chaps over at the Pancake House in Rowen (hard life, eh Phil?!), we headed over to Caer Rhun for the ceremony. It was the first time we’d shot a ceremony in the banqueting hall, usually being cramped into the corner of the smaller lounge, so it was quite a relief to find that we had plenty of space and lots of lovely light for once!

After the ceremony it was off to the marquee on the lawn with drinks and canapes for the guests while we whisked Kelly and Craig on a whistlestop tour of the gardens to get the shots we wanted. Along with our favourite tree in North Wales (a lightning-struck, ancient, giant spruce tree is always good for a bit of drama!) we found a little patch of long grass at the end of the pitch and putt with the suitably moody clouds and the sense of drama that we love so much in our pictures and shot it to death before making our way back through the gardens, stopping at the maze and wall-arch on the way for a few more pics. :)

Congratulations to you both-We had a great time shooting your big day for you-Wishing you all the best of love and luck in the world for your future together.

P.S. Beautiful flowers were by Andrea at Luna (as always!) and the makeup was by the lovely and very talented Emily from La Belle Epoque Beauty in Bangor.

Nicola and James Whiteley at the Chester Grosvenor

A fantastic bride and groom, great weather, a stunning venue and a great crowd of people-All the ingredients you need to make your wedding the day to remember that it should be!

Lit in Purple and with a distinctly purple theme about it, Nicola and James got married at the frankly awesome Chester Grosvenor on what looked to be the busiest shopping day of this century so far. The place was absolutely packed and it took three doormen to help out with the crowd control (thanks chaps!) just to get one shot outside the hotel! We ended up getting them to walk about 30 yards down the street towards us and the sheer amount of people that crashed the shot was unbelieveable, which just added to the scene!

Congratulations to you both-We had an absolute blast and loved every minute of your big day! :)

Paula and Steve at Plas Isaf, Corwen

Paula and Steve at Plas Isaf

The rather lovely, globetrotting Paula and Steve got married-And it was amazing! The amount of effort that was put into dressing the venue themselves was worth it, with Plas Isaf looking beautiful-You could instantly see the effort that had gone into making it look so great. Table centrepieces, Chair covers, decorations and bunting-It was all done in house!

There was a choreographed first dance (always a winner) a cross-dressing, cheerleading father of the bride, a bumbag made an appearance and a 10-foot tall bride and groom dance. What’s not to love about that? :)

Congratulations Paula and Steve-Thank you for your hospitality and for the time you gave us to get the photographs we wanted. We wish you all the love and luck in the world for your future together. :)
