A new, but very beautiful venue for the wedding of Laura and James – The Kinmel Manor Hotel on the North Wales Coast. The sun was shining as I headed to the brides home for the bridal preparations. Lots of laughter as Laura prepared for her day ahead, capturing all those little details she had careful gathered to wear on her wedding day.
On then to meet the groom, James, at the grandest of all medieval Denbighshire parish churches – St Marcella’s – where the couple were to exchange their vows. Some lovely shots with the groom and his groomsmen, while they awaited the arrival of the bride.
The Church layout allowed for some stunning ceremony shots, with every moment captured perfectly for the couple to re-live their vows. After the singing of the register some traditional family and group shots were done within the coolness of the church alter area, with its grandeur made for a lovely backdrop to the photographs.
The weding party headed for the wedding reception venue of Kinmel Manor Hotel, the car shots on arrival showed off some amazing sky colourings in the bright sunshine of the afternoon. Allowing the couple and their guests to enjoy some light refreshments while I captured some natural shots before whisking the bride and groom off to get some of those important romantic poses in the picturesque gardens.
Time for the wedding breakfast and the entertaining speeches before a short refreshment break for me, before heading back to capture the full group shot.
A short visit to the bridal suite for a few more shots with Laura and James before the evening reception. The coverage ended with some natural shots of all their guests enjoying the party atmosphere, the traditional cake cutting and the first dance of the bride and groom before leaving the couple to party on into the night with their family and friends. With almost 350 images for them to re-live their wedding day, here a small selection that I feel tell their story …
