Lizzie was getting ready at the hotel in Cardiff with her Mum and Dad before the children arrived from their trip to the park. They all had a little picnic in the hotel room. The bride’s hair was done by her Mum and she did her own make up.Lizzie’s flowers were in shades of lilac, lavender and purple with cream roses and she wore a pearl necklace, bracelet and earrings.Her wedding dress was an unusual halter necked a-line style with very beautiful details especially at the back and around the scalloped hemline. The top organza layer had appliquéd embellishments that sparkled in the lights and she wore a simple veil and an intricate and sparkling tiara.When the time came we went into the light ceremony room which was decorated with beautiful blossom trees. I noticed that Lizzie was rather nervous when she entered the room but became completely calm when she saw Paul.Following their lovely ceremony we went into an opposite room for drinks and then, as it was raining, we remained inside the hotel and found various different places for photographs. Their group photographs were taken in the large, classically wood panelled room downstairs. The couple and their guests were all seated for the wedding meal in a prettily decorated room with lovely cake stand centre pieces and an ice cream theme.Speeches by a very proud Dad, the groom and the best man followed the meal.They were able to relax after cake cutting when their daughter was looking on closely hoping for some cake maybe.Then time for some fun with the children on the dance floor before this happy couple’s lovely first dance together.With my very best wishes to you both and my thanks for asking me to be your wedding photographer.
