Wedding Photography Bridgend     { Peter ~ Britton ~ Photography }

The wedding of Maddie and Mark took place on a chilly February eve, 2015. It was a lovely wedding to be part of, as the ceremony took place in St. Andoenus in Mounton, near Chepstow. I had not previously visited this church, or photographed it for that matter, and was pleasantly surprised at how pretty and quant it is. The church was built in 1880, and the dedication is open to debate.  Andoenus is identified by some as an obscure Greek saint and by others as Owen. Initially a scribe in 7th Century France, he became Bishop of Rouen and Chancellor to three French monarchs. As a Bridgend wedding photographer, it’s great to work in these wonderful places.

The ceremony was a beautiful affair, and once the beautiful bride arrived, the priest led the way through the marriage vows. We left the church as the sun was setting, and took some group shots in front of the beautiful old building. The light was a challenge on the day, as it was low, but with a little flash, and occasionally a higher iso to use the lovely low light, I managed to achieve some great shots.

After the ceremony, we jumped in the cars and headed down the road to St Pierre Marriott where the bride and groom were to enjoy the reception and wedding breakfast. St Pierre is a great venue for wedding photography, as the room are lovely, and full of character and features. The fireplaces roared and the wedding meal was exceptional. During the meal, the bride and groom wheeled a TV into the main room so that the guests could enjoy the six nations Wales vs England game, which went down a treat with the wedding guests! All in all, it was a wonderful day, and Mark and Maddie were fabulous people.
