Annabel & Jamie | Hensol Castle Wedding

Annabel and Jamie held their wedding ceremony at St Mary's Church in Barry, South Wales in late November 2016. The wedding reception followed at the beautiful Hensol Castle situated in the Vale of Glamorgan.

Although somewhat chilly the weather was fine all day - very unusual for a winter wedding in South Wales !

eShoot : Lois & Luke : Penarth Pier

This pre wedding photo shoot took place at Penarth Pier and beach in the spring of 2016. 

Lois and Luke are due to get married at The Gower Hotel in July this year and I'm very much looking forward to covering their wedding. Fingers crossed that the weather is similar for their wedding day as it was here - we could do with it being a little warmer though !

Sian & Sam : Caer Llan Wedding : Monmouthshire

Sian and Sam were married at Caer Llan in Monmouthshire in the early Spring of 2016.

Situated in the beautiful Wye Valley, Caer Llan stands gracefully on a hilltop with incredible views of the surrounding Welsh hills and mountains.

The countryside around Caer Llan is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is located just a few miles from the pretty market town of Monmouth

The beautiful setting was further enhanced with an appearance from 'Blodwyn' the vintage caravan that came styled with a selection of vintage accessories.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank both Sian and Sam and also the owners of Caer Llan, Jake and Vicky, for their warm hospitality shown to me during the day.

Wedding Photography South Wales : A Year in Focus

Silver Birch Photography : South Wales : A Year in Focus

I shot a record number of weddings this year. The majority of the weddings I covered were held in the South Wales area, although I regularly ventured further afield.

My first wedding of 2015 took place in January at Rosedew Barn in Llantwit Major, with my last wedding at Morgan's Hotel on the last day of 2015 - New Years Eve ! In between I ventured to Cumbria, Hampshire, Devon and Berkshire.

To all the couples who chose me to capture the most important day of their lives – those awesome brides and grooms who put their trust in me to deliver for them – thank you !

Catrin & Barry : A Wedding at Pencoed House

Wedding at Pencoed House and St Mary's RC Church, Merthyr Tydfil : Catrin and Barry

Winter weddings are proving more popular than ever and although the weather was pretty bleak Catrin and Barry were happy to bear the elements which enabled me to capture a selection of outdoor shots, just after the ceremony at St Mary's, and also in the early evening at Pencoed House Estate.

This was my penultimate wedding of 2015 - just a few days before Christmas !
