Jo & Nick – A South Wales Wedding Adventure – Wedding

A grand adventure in South Wales, on perhaps the most wonderfully bright day in early September for the wedding of Jo and Nick. I recently posted their preview on the blog a few days ago, i could not wait until i finally got to blog the whole day! I also took the opportunity to document some of the astounding scenery that South Wales has to offer, truly awe-inspiring. It started with one of the most picturesque and pleasurable drives I have ever had. A total of 3 hours of green grass, verdant hills and glorious sunshine i found myself in the idyllic Tal Y Bont in South Wales, there was so much to photograph I felt like a kid in a sweetshop!

They had their reception at the newly finished Black Lion Hotel (gwestyllewdu), the owners of which were lovely, I will never forget the hospitality and kindness myself and the wedding guests were shown. The marquee out the back of the hotel served as the reception area, which had the most glorious backdrops known to man!

Jo and Nick were so easy to photograph, they made my job so very easy by doing the best thing a couple can ever do at their wedding – letting go and having fun! I was also humbled by the welcome I received from their families as well, I truly felt like a family friend or relative, it will be a wedding I will treasure for the rest of my career as a photographer. I look forward to returning there next year as I am also the photographer for Jo’s brother, once again I can feel the excitement of being back there and feeling like I’m going to see some dear friends.
