Craig Y Nos Wedding | Swansea

With Tamara & Neil.

I had a fantastic time at Tamara and Neil’s wedding at the Craig Y Nos Castle in Swansea, as usual it was a lovely drive up from Llanelli, South Wales up to Craig Y Nos.  But this time, we had rain on the way, oh no!!!  On the plus side, it was still early, and I had a full day wedding to cover for this lovely couple.  Turning up for the Bridal Preparation shots, and having shot at this fantastic wedding venue so many times, I know it well, and was able to wonder off between the key moments and shoot some of the table settings and cakes etc.  Not only that, this time, I had a second shooter with me (thank you G for helping out!), and he was able to get the Groom with his groomsmen before the ceremony whilst the beautiful bride was getting ready.

Not only that, we were able to get stunning photos of the ceremony from different angles without disturbing the ceremony at all, these are just a few of the advantages of having a second shooter.

Instead of going around the Castle for photos, this time we went towards the lake nearby for some beautiful scenery for their Bride and Groom portraits, then it was swiftly back to Craig Y Nos Castle for a bit of mingling.  The wedding breakfast came before we knew it, and then it was the speeches, I love it when the speeches are longer than usual, it give me the chance to truly capture moments, not only of the Bride and Groom, but of the guests too!

Dead on time for the first dance, and Neil was spinning Tamara around the dance floor with the live brass band playing, what an awesome way to finish the day!
