This was one wonderful wedding day. Ozzie and Davina. The day started in the location at which it was to end – on the family farm that was to be the reception venue. I love it when couples use the family home and garden/grounds/land for their day, as it adds a relaxed familiarity for them, and lets the guests enjoy the day in a slightly different way from your average wedding. Davina made her preparations in the family farm, which is a beautiful old building on the outskirts of Talgarth. On an adjacent field, an enormous marquee was visible for the evening reception.
Once I had photographed Davina, I made my way to Bethlehem chapel. Ozzie was waiting and greeting guests as they arrived. The chapel itself was great to shoot in as I was able to use the stalls upstairs to get a unique perspective of the wedding from above. Light was good, and the ceremony was beautiful. From there, we headed back to the farm for a drinks reception and canapes. Even though there was a chilly wind on the day, the kids and adults alike used the wonderful outdoor location to its maximum to enjoy the fresh air and amazing views that surrounded us. From where we were, in the distance I could see Waun Fach and the mountains that make up our wonderful Welsh landscape. A truly spectacular location. The formal shots were done with the mountains in the background, and then Oz, Davina and myself went for a stroll through the fields to capture some imagery that has stayed amongst my personal favourites.
The guests had a lovely meal, some fine ales were available from the bar and the speeches were very good, if a little too full of information about Ozzies stag do!
