Wedding at Llanerch Vineyard | Michelle & Gareth

Michelle and Gareth were married at Llanerch Vineyard in the Vale of Glamorgan in September 2016. Llanerch Vineyard is a boutique style wedding venue located just 20 minutes from Cardiff in South Wales.

The weather was great all day - one of the few weddings I've covered this year where the sun shone from early morning until dusk.

Alannah & David | Wedding at Canada Lodge

I left my base in Bridgend to capture Alannah's bridal preparations in Cardiff - it rained. Upon arriving at St David's Church in Groesfaen it was raining - upon leaving it was raining, heavily !. In fact it rained practically all day except for a break of around fifteen minutes on our arrival at Canada Lodge.

The weather didn't seem to concern the newly weds one little bit though, in fact they totally embraced the situation.

Colette & Michael | Wedding at the Gower Hotel

The Gower Hotel is a stylish and contemporary wedding venue located just two miles from the sea at Caswell Bay, and only six miles from Swansea town centre in South Wales. 

Colette and Michael were married at the Gower Hotel in mid August 2016. The weather was cool but relatively kind throughout the day. Following the wedding ceremony we ventured down to the nearby Clyne Gardens for an impromptu photo session.

Katie & Chris | Brynffynon Hotel

It didn't rain ! The first wedding for a while where the weather was favourable - more like what you would expect for a late July wedding in South Wales.

Katie and Chris were married at 'St. Catherine's Church in Wales' on a beautiful summer day in July 2016. The wedding reception followed at the Brynffynon Hotel, which is located in little hamlet of Hafod Ddreiniog on the outskirts of Pontypridd.

It was good to work with Barry from BGD Video once again.

Zoe and Bernard : Rhossili Village Hall

We enjoyed great weather, except for a crazy early evening storm, a percussion workshop and also a first dance that featured the music of 'One Direction'.

Zoe and Bernard's wedding took place at Rhossili Village Hall in late July 2016. It was a very informal affair - more akin to a full day party than a wedding !

After the outdoor ceremony the guests participated in a percussion workshop hosted by 'Slapping Skins' which proved to be very popular. 

I used both digital and vintage analogue cameras on the day - a quick selection of images follow:
