In the middle of August a few years ago, the sun came out for a wonderful day… Nat and Jon’s wedding! My wedding photography shoot started quite early this time at Nat’s house. As usual, I started with the Bridal preparations as Nat and her Bridesmaids’ got ready and I shot all the details such as the shoes and wedding dress.
Then it was time to meet the Groom Jon. Amazingly, Jon was quite literally only around the corner, so that made life very easy! The bride and groom had selected the Ystrad Mynach Church for their ceremony venue, which was fab as it is light, bright and airy, and therefore wonderful for wedding photography.
After the church service was complete, we drove around to the New House Hotel. This is one of my favourite venues to work at. The rooms and facilities are brilliant. The staff are very helpful, and the marquee area is great as a venue and party area. Situated on the edge of Cardiff and located amongst the Welsh hills, the New House Country Hotel has spectacular views over Cardiff and the Severn Estuaries. From welcoming open fires to exquisite, lovingly-restored rooms, the beautiful country mansion is the perfect place to get married. The quality of food is superb, and the views provide great backdrops for the formal photographs.
When we arrived at the hotel, the bride and groom where were met by all of their wedding guests. The venue looked amazing and after meal and the speeches, the party continued long into the night with music, dancing, and a drink or two. The bride and groom were were great to work with on their day, and were incredibly helpful and accommodating. I wish them all the happiness in the world for their future as a married couple, and a family.
