Our day started near Creigiau in The Barns at Tyn-y-Coed Farm where everyone was getting ready for Joe and Morwenna’s wedding. Their very beautiful flowers for the day had little hidden secrets. A centurion for Joe and a mermaid for Morwenna.
With Morwenna were her Mum, stepdad, her aunty and two bridesmaids. Her hair and make-up were done brilliantly by friends from the roller derby.Her bridesmaids helped Morwenna to get dressed in her really pretty tea length dress. It had tiny flowers embroidered all over the delicate sheer fabric overlay with a sweetheart neckline showing through. An aqua coloured sash and shoes highlighted one of the colours of the day and her outfit was topped off with a cute birdcage veil complimenting it perfectly. Morwenna’s bridesmaid’s dresses and contrasting shoes were an exact colour match with her wedding flowers.
Dad arrived with his land rover to take her to St Fagans but first we had time for some photographs in the barn garden.
Joe and all the boys strolled down the drive from the barns to their cab waiting to take them to St Fagans.I went on to the castle in St Fagans where Joe had arrived and was meeting and greeting family and friends. Inside the ceremony room Morwenna’s aunty had created stunning flower arrangements.The bride and her bridesmaids walked down the aisle in the castle to meet Joe for a quick but lovely and very smiley marriage ceremony. Although Grandma had Morwenna in happy tears during the signing of the register.Then it was all outside for a few important group photographs followed by some fun bridal party ones.The couple photographs were taken all around the beautiful grounds of St Fagans, by the grand surrounding wall, in the gardens, by the lake and along the woodland path with classic St Fagans wedding photos by the shops and cottages and then back to Oakdale Hall.Even on the funfair ride.The room in Oakdale was laid for high tea with beautiful flower arrangements and vintage china on the tables.There was a stunning display of 1000 origami cranes all hand made by the bride and her family and guests were queuing to create the thumb print tree.High tea was followed by speeches from both Mowrwenna and Joe, his Best Man who was so pleased to have been asked, and her dad.Games and hoola hoops and a keg of beer were all in the garden for guests to enjoy.And then there was the cake cutting and wow what a cake depicting the amphitheatre where the happy couple got engaged along with many other things special to them, including another centurion and batman just because he is cool.Their first dance was a very happy time and Morwenna’s lovely dress was a highlight.Lovely, happy guests enjoyed every moment.Thank you both for asking me to take your wedding photos. I had a great day with brilliant people in a place that holds some very special memories for me too.
