Wedding Ceremony venue North Wales
Bodryddan Hall in North Wales is an incredible location for a wedding, with beautiful formal gardens for wedding photographs. It is a grand 17th-century home and the gardens I could walk around all day, they are simply stunning!
The bride arrived to the wedding in a VW Camper and walked down to the outdoor ceremony with the most picturesque walk for a bride I think we’ve ever had. The wedding area in the gardens by the lake, is just incredible and despite the size, such a cosy and spectacular location. The sun was beaming down and you certainly knew summer had arrived, with a large variety of flowers in bloom. After the ceremony we returned to the farm for the marquee celebration.
Brides wedding hair
I loved the natural up do the bride choose for her wedding day, which was swept to the side. It was perfect for the time of year with it being such a warm day to be off the neck and looked fantastic with her wedding dress style.
Men’s wedding suits
We have loved blue suits for such a long time and I think they are a great timeless wedding colour, which photographs so well. They are right up there with black and grey as an all time classic.
The simple two-piece wedding suit looked fantastic with a white shirt and plain blue tie. The button holes looked insane with a simple choice of 2 small flowers and foliage. Classic and timeless and the white pocket square always helps to lift a simple suit up to wedding level. The suits were finished off, with the classic brown shoe and they had bought colourful retro sunglasses which looked great together with the suits.
Brides wedding bouquet
The brides wedding flowers were made up of just one flower called Gypsophila which is usually used as a decoration in a brides wedding bouquet but looked exquisite as the only flower in the bouquet and made for such a graceful choice.
The wedding reception was held at the family farm in Tremeirchion, which is a small residential community in Denbighshire, North Wales near Rhuallt.
The gorgeous wedding location was stunning to photograph in with stunning green fields in amongst a small tree area set the location for their marquee and camping area. The wedding marquee was decorated with beautiful little personal touches and a farm wedding feel to it.
The wedding dress was unusual in that it was halter neck which is one of my all time favourite wedding dress neck lines but yet is so unusual. The dress was white and tight fitting with a lace bodice and a lovely long flow to the bottom which was finished off with a lace trim edge.
Other wedding photography details
There were family dogs roaming freely round the wedding, which just enhanced the relaxed festival style vibe at the wedding. The décor was finished with hay bales and cute little vintage seating areas for guests to relax in.
There was also a camping area available for those who wanted to stay the night.
The whole wedding had a relaxed family feel to it and it was so very magical. One of the coolest touches was the bride and groom haybales which had been wrapped and decorated to look like a bride and groom. It looked fantastic at the entrance to the wedding ready to greet everyone.
Wedding Photography Techy bit
Quite often I will talk about the lighting when it comes to wedding photography and on a wedding day and with blinding sun and no clouds lighting is never more important. You might be surprised that we do use flash on a day like this as even with your backs to the sun we may have to light your faces a touch to provide a better balance.
Also when we take candid’s we use a tiny touch of flash, that you may not even notice just to slightly lighten the faces particularly harsh shadows from the sun which occur usually under the eyes when it’s really bright.
