Last Saturday Marc and Sian were married in St Crallo’s Church in Coychurch. It was a later start for me as there were no preparation shots to be taken but it also meant that I was able to stay for some of the party. Marc, wearing a deep red rose in his button hole, didn’t stop smiling when he greeted their guests at the local church on what had turned out to be a bright spring day.Accompanied by her proud father Sian arrived at the church wearing a beautiful, flowing gown, with sparkling embroidery and button details topped off with a deep red cloak to keep out any chill. Her bouquet was a display of vibrant yellow spring daffodils wrapped in deep red ribbon to match her cloak.
The ceremony was lovely with two readings and vows in Welsh from Sian and in English from Marc.
After taking photographs at the church we moved on to Coed-Y-Mwstwr for arrival drinks and some more photographs. We were fortunately enough to have a little glimmer of sunshine for these which is always nice.
Spring sunshine and daffodils what a perfect combination.
The weather stayed kind for some bridal party shots with the bride’s sister as her bridesmaid and a very smart page boy and cute little flower girl.
Inside Coed-Y-Mwstwr their colour scheme continued with vases of deep red roses and beautiful sunshine yellow daffodils, deep red ribbons and chair bows.
Sian’s very talented Mum made their wedding cake which was a stunning combination of their chosen colours with sweeping hearts and ribbons around each of the three tiers and the bride and groom poised near the top.
It is great whenever possible to take a few photographs on the grand staircase at Coed-Y-Mwstwr. Inside locations should not be restricted to rainy days especially when they look like this.
The wedding breakfast and speeches followed and these were heartfelt, traditional words from the Father of the Bride, The Groom and his Best Man albeit with a smile included.
A gorgeous very romantic first dance for me to capture before the band played for the party and all the guests looked forward to a midnight feast.
My second wedding of 2016 was a truly memorable day, with a Welsh and English mix, two beautiful locations, lots of family involvement, a little spring sunshine and of course a very happy couple. Thank you Marc and Sian for asking me to be your wedding photographer.
