Rachel & Kristian's Tipi Wedding at The Outbuildings in Anglesey


Rachel & Kristian's tipi wedding at the outbuildings in anglesey

The Outbuildings is a quirky little wedding venue in Anglesey, North Wales. Surrounded by Welsh fields filled with fluffy white sheep & even has it’s very own pink farm house, making the perfect backdrop for some colourful wedding photography.

I had the pleasure of meeting Rachel & Kristian for their pre-wedding beach shoot earlier in the year. They are both such lovely people & were so happy telling me all about their plans for the big day, I came away so excited for the day to come around!

After the pair tied the knot in front of a beautiful floral arch, it was outside to enjoy pour-your-own pints and ice-cream cones! Next up was an appearance from The Diamond Boys. Now I don’t often do supplier shout out’s unless I see something absolutely incredible… & The Diamond Boys were just that! By far one of the best bands I’ve ever met & you can see for yourself how much the guests loved them! By the end of their set they had every single guest joining in, circled around them singing their hearts out.

It was such an wonderful day & the cherry on the top was the most epic golden hour just as I was saying my goodbyes. We’d waited and waited all evening for the sun & clouds to aline to give us some beautiful light & they did, just in the nick of time!

Rachel & Kristian, thank you so much for asking me to be a part of your day. I hope you love your photos of much as I do <3

 

Beth & Dave's Welsh Wedding at Tower Hill Barns


A Tower Hill Barns Wedding in North Wales

Once again I was back at the lovely Tower Hill Barns in North Wales, this time for Beth & Dave’s big day!

The pair chose to say their I do’s in the quaintest little Welsh church before heading over to the barn to celebrate in style as Husband & Wife. After a bit of a grey start to the day, the sun came out in full force just in time for the guests to enjoy drinks on the terrace and to whisk Beth & Dave off again for some evening portraits. After a pretty rainy week it was an honour to be blessed with such beautiful light to work with!

Beth & Dave, thanks so much for asking me to be a part of your beautiful, beautiful day. I hope you’ve had an amazing honeymoon & looking through your blog will ease any holiday blues <3

 

Emma & Scott's Welsh Manor Wedding at Tyn Dwr Hall


Emma & Scott Tyn Dwr Hall Wedding

I’d been so excited in the run up to Emma & Scott’s big day. Firstly, because I couldn’t wait to get back to the beautiful Tyn Dwr Hall & secondly, because Emma & Scott are AWESOME and I couldn’t wait to see them both tie the knot!

As Emma walked down the aisle looking a million dollars, Scott was completely overcome with emotion. He did the best groom-cry I’ve seen in ages & made my job very difficult shooting through blurry eyes!

Emma & Scott, thank-you so much for asking me to be a part of your special day. You guys were just as fun & laid back as I knew you would be and it really was a pleasure to be involved. Hope you had an amazing honeymoon & hopefully this gallery will ease some of the holiday blues <3

P.S. A massive thanks to Ayesha for being a fabulous 2nd Shooter!

North Wales Wedding Photography // Anglesey Engagement Shoot


I’ll forever be grateful to Rachel & Kristian for introducing me to the beautiful Newborough beach in Anglesey! We booked a date in for their pre-shoot months in advance and with the pair travelling up from London, a lot was riding on the weather being on our side.

We got so lucky! Not only was it dry, it was sunny, warm & the beach looked incredible!

Rachel & Kristian, you guys were perfect! Counting down the day’s now till I’m back in Anglesey for your wedding :)

 

Katie & David's Rustic North Wales Wedding at Llanrhaeadr Springs


Llanrhaeadr Springs Wedding in North Wales

Katie & Dave chose to the tie the knot at the quaint little church in Llantysilio, North Wales. Katie arrived in style in a tiny vintage wedding car, adorned with flowers & driven by her father. She looked absolutely amazing with a huge smile, red lipstick & beautiful rustic bouquet.

After the intimate service came to an end and the pair were declared Husband & Wife, it was time to head over to the North Wales wedding venue, Llanrhaeadr Springs to carry on the celebrations. The newly wed’s headed over in the vintage car as I followed behind so we could pull over in a lay by en route and make the most of the beautiful Welsh scenery.

Katie & David, thanks so much for asking me to be a part of your day! I hope you love your preview.. can’t wait to show you ALL the rest <3

 

Becky & Rich's Tower Hill Barns wedding in North Wales

Becky & Rich, Tower Hill Barns Wedding Photography

Becky & Rich decided to ditch the traditions and just have a bloody good day, exactly how they wanted it.

There were no formal photographs, no cake cutting, no first dance. But there were not one, but FIVE Cocker Spaniels, a giant tv screen playing the England World Cup match & an outdoor rave to the amazing gospel singers from Sing Out Music. Any wedding featuring a dog is a success in my eyes, so you can't imagine how excited I was when I saw five of them (all sporting bow ties) running towards Becky.

It was so so great to be back at Tower Hill Barns again for my seventh wedding at the gorgeous venue too! I swear it just keeps getting better there! It's the perfect venue for a chilled out knees up with great food and a great atmosphere.

Becky & Rich, I hope you love your preview... can't wait to show you the rest <3

 

Chelsey & Mike's Beautiful Welsh Elopement at Hafod Farm, North Wales

A Hafod Farm Elopement in North Wales

I was only with Chelsey & Mike a short but sweet three hours & wow, what a three hours they were! The pair flew over from the States to elope in the beautiful Welsh countryside in front of their closest friends & family. They chose to tie the knot at Hafod Farm in Snowdonia National Park, under a beautiful handmade Chuppah & were lucky enough to witness the rare British sunshine!

Before the ceremony started, Chelsey & Mike had arranged to meet in private, for a "first look." Mike's face lit up as he saw Chelsey for the first time on their wedding day, who looked absolutely incredible in an elegant fitted dress, super long veil & handmade bouquet.

Thanks so much for asking me to be a part of your day guys, I hope you're having an amazing Honeymoon :)

 

Rachel & Mark's Epic Tipi Wedding by The Sea at Bach Wen Farm in North Wales

A Bach Wen Farm Wedding in Caernarfon, North Wales

This was one of those weddings that I was praying was going to be even a fraction as amazing as Rachel & Mark had described it to be & fortunately it most definitely wasn't. It was a thousand times better!

After waking up to perfect blue skies & sunshine, I was bored of waiting in my hotel room, so set off early to Bach Wen Farm to explore the site. Everything about this North Wales wedding venue is picture perfect... on one side you've got glorious Welsh hills & on the other, the beautiful Caernarfon Bay coast line. Sandwiched in the middle was the coolest Tipi set up ever, completed with seaside style stripy deck chairs, giant festival flags & a bright orange VW Camper.

After the pair had officially tied the knot at St Beuno's Church it was back over to Bach Wen Farm, where Rachel & Mark led the way down to the beach with their family & friends following in procession. Much to the delight of their guests, as they arrived at the coastline a surprise brass band started playing Beyonce at full blast whilst they sipped champagne in front of the sea. 

When speaking to Rachel about the day's timeline, she asked me to stay a little later than usual in case of a sunset over Caernarfon Bay. The photographer in me couldn't resist and I'm so so glad she did as there was THE MOST EPIC sunset ever. It was the most perfect end to the most perfect day!

Rachel & Mark, I hope you're having an amazing time in the Welsh sunshine... can't wait to show you the rest!

 

Polly & Zac's Rainbow Wedding at Tyn Dwr Hall, North Wales

Tyn Dwr Hall Wedding in North Wales

I first met Polly in high school when we were just eleven, so naturally I was over the moon when she asked me to photograph her & Zac's wedding day! It's always an honour witnessing the happiest day of someone's life, but when you've know them for this long.. it's definitely got an extra special something.

After all the amazing weather we've had, it was sod's law that we were due a huge thunder storm on the day of the wedding. It rained pretty much the whole drive there despite me having my fingers crossed all morning. As Pol was getting ready with the girls in Tyn Dwr Hall, patches of blue skies creeped in & an hour later it was blue skies & sunshine all round.. Such luck!

The weather stayed great all day & we couldn't have asked for more - until we went out for some more photographs after the speeches & wedding breakfast was over. It started absolutely chucking it down, so we grabbed some umbrellas and headed back inside.. only to find a huge rainbow on the other side of the venue. It was the cherry on top of an already perfect day!

Pol & Zac, thanks so much for asking me to be a part of your day. I hope you love your photo's & can't wait to show you the rest!

& last but not least, a huge thanks to my 2nd Shooter, Helen <3
