Posted by in blog | September 23, 2013

Well the weather certainly changed for the better this weekend and especially yesterday at Craxton Wood Hotel, Chester where the sun shone all day for the wedding of Sarah and Matt! The gardens gave us some great photographic opportunities and the confetti shot was fantastic today! The photography really portrays the family atmosphere at the wedding and a great time was had by all. Here are a few sneaky peaks from the day!

Humanist Wedding Ceremony – North Wales for Lauren & Edward

Posted by in blog | September 21, 2013

A humanist wedding or marriage celebration ceremony is usually  performed after a short legal ceremony in a registry office – then you are free to celebrate your wedding day at any venue you wish. The words and music are personal and chosen by yourselves. Rings can be exchanged and are ideal if you want to get married abroad and then celebrate with you family and friends.

Over 240 guests shared Lauren and Eddie’s day where they declared their love for each other through words and music. We were privileged to be able to capture the celebration of two peoples love for each other in a beautiful ceremony in Dolywern  in the Ceiriog Valley. The celebrations included singing, poems and readings, exchanging of rings, lighting candles before enjoying a celebratory party with their guests. The first dance showed off their wheelchair skills and everyone had a fantastic day – including me! Looking forward to building a beautiful album for a wonderful couple! Congratulations Lauren and Eddie!
