It’s not often I photograph a Cardiff wedding but it is always nice to head up there and work in a new venue. Becky & Tom’s wedding day was a classic, I had an awesome time documenting their big day.

I joined Becky and the bridesmaids at her parents’ house where they were getting ready. The hair and make up artists were in full swing and there was a lovely warm atmosphere around the house. With a few other family members popping in and out over the morning, the energy and excitement gradually built. I left Becky and the girls a few minutes before they were going to leave for the church. This meant I could capture some photos of Tom and his groomsmen at the church, as well as the guests arriving too.

It was a beautiful church ceremony, with lots of awesome moments through out; some friends and families gave some readings and prayed for the couple too. Once Becky and Tom walked back up the aisle as husband and wife, their guests joined them outside to congratulate them. For me this is one of my favourite times of the wedding, capturing the bride and grooms friends and family giving them hugs and congratulating them.

After the ceremony everyone travelled to the Coed- Y-Mwstwr hotel where they joined the bride & groom for drinks and canapes before we took some group photos out on the lawn. Whilst the guests were making their way in to the wedding breakfast room to find their seats, I took Becky & Tom for a few photos around the grounds of the hotel. We had some beautiful light and lots of autumnal colours around too which came together to make some stunning couples’ portraits.

After some brilliant speeches by Becky’s Dad, Tom and Tom’s Bestman everyone retired back into the lounge bar for drinks whilst the evening guests arrived. The evening reception kicked off with Becky & Tom cutting the cake and then heading straight onto the dance floor to have their first dance. After this the party really started and the bride & groom where joined by lots of their guests on the dance floor to dance the night away.

I had an awesome time documenting the Cardiff wedding, Becky, Tom and their guests were great fun all day and I really enjoyed being there to document it. It was such a privilege to be asked to be a part of Becky & Tom’s special day and congratulations once again.
