Llanerch Vineyard is the stunning venue for this gorgeous couple’s wedding reception! The weather was perfect, everyone had an amazing time, it was so laid back and Vix looked
fabulous in her Augustus James dress that she purchased from Laura May Bridal and pretty Dune shoes, which the Bridesmaids complimented in their long, coral dresses and the final touch of stunning bouquets from The Flower Lodge. All of the girls had their hair and make up done by Brideology who came to Vix’s house and who ensured that they were all ready in good time to get dressed and have some photographs before we headed off to St Denys Church in Lisvane. It was very emotional when Vix walked down the stairs and her Dad saw her for the first time, such a touching moment. The boys were waiting for us at the church, looking extremely smart in their grey Moss Bros suits and plain ties – Henry was wearing a coral one to match the Bridesmaids! We had met his Mum & Sister at the house so it was nice to meet his Dad & brother, who was an Usher too. Once some of the remaining guests had been coaxed out of the pub across the road from the church it was time for the Bride, Father of the Bride, Bridesmaids and Vix’s Mum to arrive in ‘Candice’ from Henrietta Hire, they made a striking site walking along the pretty path in to the church where Rosemary was waiting for them to perform the ceremony. The church is unusual as it is ‘L’ shaped so Vix & Henry stood at the edge of the ‘L’ so that all of their guests could see them and watch them exchange vows, though they signed the register in the vestry with just their parents and Rhys the Best Man and then walked back down the aisle and out in to the beautiful grounds of the church where confetti was thrown and a couple of family photographs were taken! We all headed off to Llanerch Vineyard where the reception drinks and delicious canapes were served, whilst all of the guests were arriving we took Vix & Henry through the Woodland walk to the lake, it was so peaceful with perfect lighting, they enjoyed having a bit of time with each other before joining all of their guests in the Calon Lodge, overlooking the vines – we just stopped in the marquee for them to see the room set up as they had planned and to take a photograph of them with their cake made by Kooky Cakes! The guests loved being able to appreciate the vines and sit outside in the glorious sunshine, the perfect backdrop for the family & friend’s photographs before heading to the marquee for the Wedding Breakfast. A delicious meal was served and heartfelt, humorous speeches were delivered – including the story of how Henry proposed, amusingly it was at home in their kitchen as Henry’s plan to propose on a romantic walk was foiled by Vix finding a certificate of insurance for the carefully chosen engagement ring – before we took Vix & Henry back to the vines to photograph them in the late afternoon/early evening sun – Ryan the owner of the vineyard had set up a scaffold tower for Andy to be able to get a birds eye view of the gorgeous couple and the vines with the restaurant, hotel and Calon Lodge, it looked amazing! Soon it was time for the cake cutting and then the First dance, played expertly by the band, Perfect Day Party Band! We hope they are having an awesome honeymoon in Thailand and can’t wait to see them when they return to come to see their wedding day images!!
