Little over a month ago I was lucky to photograph the wedding of Caro & Jake, a humanist ceremony at their own house in Narberth, Pembrokeshire and reception held at a marquee that the couple had put up in their garden. It was a gorgeous family affair. The couple has two kids, teenage Megan and 11 months old (and already walking!) Jamie who made it to quite a few photographs making me grin as I was waddling through the edit! Extremely fortunate with the weather, everyone celebrated most of the day outdoors, getting spoilt with the scenery and tanned by strong Welsh sun.
Being based in Cardiff Pembrokeshire is only an enjoyable drive away and I absolutely adore weddings there. The landscape is insanely beautiful and out of my personal experience, it is always seems to be sunny! Caro and Jakes wedding was the sleeveless top, bare foot on the grass, blue skies type of wedding, the ultimate wedding photographer‘s dream! The entire setting was just breathtaking, filled with opportunities for creative wedding photographs. As we walked down the path to take some photographs by the lake Caro told me a bit about how they got hold of such an amazing house within this outrageously perfect plot. It turns out this couple’s luck spreads out way beyond these two finding each other and being blessed with a wonderful family. Leading up to the wedding Jake turned the garage into a bar (as you do…), set up outdoor lights, and even organised a boat for them to be photographed in! When I first met the couple during their pre booking consultation they mentioned the lake and said something along the lines of ‘perhaps we could get into a boat if you think that would work’ I pretty much squeeeked out loud! Are you kidding me? Do you want me to take images of a wedding couple in the boat in the middle of the lake? I’m so on it!
Make sure you scroll through this set (trust me it is SO HARD to keep it below certain number of images! But Andy is pushing on me to keep the image stream down and I crumble under pressure!) to see the golden hour lake portraits, I totally loved taking them! I hope you enjoy.
