Well what a quirky but stunning wedding venue this is! A Napoleonic Fort set right in the heart of Snowdonia with magnificent sea and mountain views, sand dunes and deserted beaches it was a perfect place for a wedding.
A pre-wedding visit to this beautiful venue gave us the insight into how spetacular this wedding was going to be. Canon salute, fireworks, marquee overlooking the sea and a vintage themed wedding.
The day began with the bridal preps in a small cottage just outside Caernarfon where the bride was stopping the night before the wedding. After capturing the girls getting ready it was off to the fort to meet up with the groom and get ready for the long day ahead.
A personalised flag for the couple flew on the Fort’s clock tower and the Fort’s courtyard had been set up ready for the outdoor ceremony. Some shots with the groom and his best men and then on to capturing the arrival of the guests.
the ceremony was a splash of colour – yellow was the theme of the day and it worked perfectly with the blue skies and sandy beaches. After making full use of the stunning scenery and the beach, it was time for the canon salute marking the wedding day.
On then to the wedding breakfast and speeches before the cutting of the cake. As the weather was perfect the guests could enjoy the last of the evening sun before the first dance. The day ended with a firework display with bursts of colour lighting up the sky over the sea.
With almost 400 images from the days coverage it has been a struggle to select a few for the blogs – but here are a few of my favourites from the day …
