Coed Y Mwstwr Hotel Wedding Photography
This fabulous couple had their Wedding Reception at The Coed Y Mwstwr Hotel, Coychurch, Bridgend. We started in Llantwit Fardre at Ceri’s parents house with a Bridesmaid, Pebble, applying make up and Nadine creating hair styles! The rainy, wild & windy weather certainly didn’t dampen their mood as laughter was constant whilst they were all getting ready! Though there were two emotional moments when Ceri opened her presents from Kieran and when she walked down the stairs to her Mum & Dad waiting at the bottom. We photographed all of the detail such as the dress, shoes jewellery etc. using the Bridesmaids dress, made by a family friend, which was navy blue with a burnt orange belt, to keep with the colour theme that was chosen. They totally complimented Ceri’s dress Paloma Blanca from Laura May, which was very floaty with French Alencon lace and a ruffled organdy skirt! The beautiful flowers from Flower Power in Church Village finished off the look perfectly. We arrived at St Illtud’s Church in Upper Church Village a few minutes prior to the ceremony. The Ushers were on hand with umbrellas to help the Bridesmaids and Ceri in to the church, though it stopped raining just in time! After the ceremony we caught up on all of the photographs of Kieran and his family and Best Men and Ushers in their smart navy suits from Dyfed Menswear, with their burnt orange rose button holes. They were driven to the Coed Y Mwstwr Hotel in the Vintage Beauford they had hired for the day. A lot of thought had gone in to decorating their room for the Wedding Breakfast, with pretty lace bows on their chair covers and the table names appropriately chosen as their favourite restaurants – appropriate as Kieran is a Head Chef at The Chapel 1877 restaurant in Cardiff! Even though it was a very blustery day we had great fun photographing them in the grounds of the hotel and all of the guests were great sports to come outside for their photos too. The evening was kicked off by their amazing DJ and then their band Dansette added some live music too! We hope they have a fab honeymoon on safari!!
