Craig Y Nos Castle, Brecon, South Wales

Joanne and Simon’s Wedding

A huge congratulations to Joanne and Simon on their beautiful winter wedding at the Craig Y Nos Castle in Brecon, South Wales.  With the recent weather warnings of snow, leading up to the big day, parts of the country were snowed in!  For me, it was having that horrible feeling of whether I could make it to the wedding or not.  Luckily, on the morning, the snow had died down, and the rain had melted a lot of the snow, so I was able to travel up!  If that wasn’t the case, I would have hiked up if I had to!

Professional Wedding Photographer 

So this was the most unexpected wedding I’ve photographed! A fellow photographer who was unable to photograph the wedding due to unforeseen circumstances asked if I was able to photograph a wedding that day.  It was a good thing I was up at 8.30am that morning, totally not like me when I didn’t have to work!

Behind the Scenes

As a wedding photographer, you really have to be creative and think on the spot, sometimes, there are just minutes to come up with a photograph, and in the more unflattering locations.  Here are a few example photos I’ve taken at weddings that shows how much difference hiring a professional wedding photographer for our wedding day makes!

Adele and Dale Wedding | St Samlet’s Church and Manor Park Country House, Swansea, South Wales

It’s another South Wales wedding for me today, this time, it was in a Llansamlet in Swansea.  A lovely intimate wedding in St Samlet Church, but first, it was a few drinks at the Plough and Harrow with the boys.  The best man is a friend of mine, so it was easy to get everyone relaxed in front of the camera quickly.  After a drink ot two, and a few group photos, it was time for the church.
