This was a really special day for Peter Britton Photography as I got photograph the wedding day of two school friends… and what a day it turned out to be! Rob and Helen tied the knot a few years ago with a beautiful wedding in Porthcawl, South Wales. Porthcawl is a wonderful place to get married and offers spectacular views over the Bristol Channel, so photographically, it’s superb. Rob and Helen got married in The Hi Tide, which proved to be a truly wonderful wedding venue.
The day started at the Hi Tide with Helens arrival to the venue. Her bridesmaids arrived just before her, and looked absolutely stunning in their very classy dresses and bouquets. Helen arrived shortly after in one of the best wedding cars I have seen – an army jeep. Rob was waiting in the Hi Tide, were the ceremony took place. The ceremony itself was lovely, and the venue was light, bright and airy – just what a wedding photographer needs!
After the ceremony, we did the formal shots out the front of the Hi Tide, and I then went with the bride and groom to Coney Beach, where we achieved some beautiful photographs. Rob and Helen were very photogenic on their day, and this was because they were so relaxed and exceptionally happy. When we went back inside, there was a young gentleman performing onstage, and it was some of the most wonderful singing have heard. I unfortunately don’t remember his name, but his vocals blew me away. it was beautiful.
From there, the bride and groom mingled with their guests, and the wedding breakfast was served. After the meal, speeches were given and they were amongst the best, funniest and most relaxed speeches I have been witness to. The dads were hilarious, and Mr Andrew Bees and Mr David Lock delivered outstanding speeches. The evening progressed as the drinks flowed, and fireworks and dancing topped off a truly spectacular day!
