Road trip to Wales
Who doesn’t love a change of scene? I get such a buzz (and a few nerves) from shooting somewhere new. Carys and Brad booked me in 2020 when my cameras were collecting dust and my computers had been reassigned to home schooling. Fast forward to a absolutely packed out 2022 and I hit google maps to get my bearings of Carys and Brads wedding venue in Wales. It looked amazing and I was instantly hooked. When I’m heading out of the Cotswolds and into Wales I’ll always pop in on my photographer friend Aga who’s based in Cardiff. It just makes the whole trip so lovely!
Back to Nature
I’m a very outdoorsy person so I was thrilled to be shooting in the woods at Gellifawr Woodland Retreat.
Wedding photography is a very fluid thing for me, I dont approach a wedding with preconceptions about what I want to shoot I very much get a feel for the day in real time. I’ve always worked the same because for me it’s very much about people and everyone is different.
My first observation was how close this family unit was. Children can get a bit overwhelmed at big events and it was clear that Carys and Brad wanted to include their boys completely. So with that in mind it was my job was to just to tell the story as happened and carefully find a good window to sneak off with Mum and Dad for some alone time portraits.
I flipping loved this wedding!! It ticked all the boxes for me. Carys and Brad just relaxed into their day and had the best time. They had such an amazing reception and party too. No one avoided the dance floor, and for a wedding photographer that’s what dreams are made of.
