On a beautiful summers day I photographed the wonderful wedding of Ellie and Barry at Ocean View, in the Gower, near Swansea. The Gower hosts many different wedding venues, all of which are superb, but Ocean View holds it’s own as one of the best in South Wales. On offer nearby are the fantastic beaches, hills and castles that make the area special.
Ellie chose to get ready at the nearby Maes Yr Haf hotel, before heading over to the reception venue for a civil wedding ceremony. After the ceremony we gathered the wedding guests outside for some formal group shots. As soon as the group photographs were out of the way, the wedding guests were free to explore the bar until it was time for the wedding Breakfast. Myself and the bride and groom took the opportunity to visit nearby Woebley Castle, which provided the perfect backdrop for the lovely couple.
Weobley was the home of the de la Bere family up until the 15th century. The views from Weobley over the north Gower marshlands and mudflats are gorgeous, and as such, provide a spectacular setting for wedding photography.
Finally, the guest returned for a wedding Breakfast inside Ocean View before heading onto the dancefloor to dance the night away to some great tunes. A great day all around!
As a Bridgend Wedding Photographer, it is great to have the scope to move around Wales shooting different locations and meeting the lovely people I encounter on their big day! Barry and Ellie were great on their day, and made the day a smooth one by just being themselves – happy, relaxed and in love!
