Shannon was getting ready with her children and sisters at the Holiday Inn, Cardiff when I arrived to take the preparation photographs.Her beautiful blue and silver jewellery perfectly matched the colour of her everlasting bouquet. The theme was continued with the Bride and Mother of the Bride robes.The cute factor was massive with this lovely family Joseph, his best man and all their family and friends were waiting for the bride to arrive and they weren’t disappointed when the little procession walked down the aisle.After the ceremony and signing the register we managed to take some super photos in the little garden at the hotel and also on the mirrored staircase.Shannon looked stunning in her full lace, backless wedding gown.On into the wedding breakfast where there was no shortage of sparkle in the elegant table decorations.When the speeches followed there were lots of very happy and emotional faces. With some fun both before and after the evening guests started to arrive.The gorgeous wedding cake followed on with the theme of soft blues, everlasting flowers, a dash of sparkle and lots of love.Their first dance together as Mr and Mrs was one of the most atmospheric I have photographed. Who knew that a smoke machine would be so lovely.Just a lovely little wedding ending up in the tavern below the hotel and it looked like it was probably going to be a great party because everyone was having lots of fun. Thank you Shannon and Joseph for asking me to photograph you wonderful wedding day.
