The Glen yr Afon Hotel is the chosen venue for Kate & Ben’s fab Wedding Day!  We started in Caerleon for the second time that weekend and joined Kate, her parents, Julie & Phil, four Bridesmaids (including Kate’s Sister, Amy), a hairdresser and make up artist all getting ready for Kate’s big day!  There was plenty of space to photograph all of the important detail that complimented Kate’s beautiful dress from All About Eve, including her pretty bouquet from Beadbox.  The cars arrived from C&E Wedding cars to take Kate and her Dad, her Mum and the Bridesmaids the short drive to St Cadoc’s Church, just round the corner in Caerleon town centre.  Here we met up with Ben and his best man and Ushers, looking very smart in their grey suits from Dyfed Menswear.  After a lovely service, we organised the confetti to be thrown at the litch gate and then we all travelled to The Glen yr Afon Hotel where the Bride and Groom and their guests were met by the fabulous staff with welcome drinks. The weather was perfect so we were able to photograph all of the family and friends outside using the perfect steps at the entrance to The Glen yr Afon Hotel and the surrounding areas.   After their gorgeous meal  Kate & Ben cut their cake that had been lovingly made by Ben’s Auntie then came the speeches, which were fab and included a recorded speech from Ben’s twin brother who is away with the Navy and couldn’t be there in person to take on the Best Man duties!  We left them at that point to enjoy the rest of their day and evening – including the Sweetie Cart that Kate’s Sister Amy had arranged!

Here is a first look at some of our favourite images from Sarah & Paul’s wedding at the Cwrt Bleddyn Hotel near Usk.  Sarah & Paul travelled all the way from Brisbane Australia!!!! Paul came home with Sarah who is Australian, to reaffirm their vows with their 2 children and Sarah’s family & Bridesmaids in tow! We started out at the Park Plaza Hotel in Cardiff with Sarah and her Bridesmaids where she had her make up applied by the excellent Kirsty from MAC make Up also with her Mum & dad and Nan and Paul’s Mum helping out with preparations.  At the hotel we met up with Paul and his family and groomsmen who were all wearing kilts!  The ceremony and reception were both at The Cwrt Bleddyn Hotel in Usk and they had a Humanist ceremony, the first one we have ever photographed!  Sarah & her Dad and Bridesmaids were transported to the venue in a 1935 Vauxhall BXL 7 passenger Limousine from Henrietta Hire.  After the ceremony the guests had drinks in the courtyard and we were able to photograph their family & friends photographs in the lovely grounds, Sarah & Paul also had a ride in the car in the surrounding countryside.  As a surprise miniature ponies were instroduced to the lovely couple to present a ‘lucky horseshoe’!  The whole day was captured on video by Andrew O’Leary  from SLR Creations.  Sarah & Paul then spent a fabulous week in Paris for their honeymoon.

This post contains a choice of my favorite images from the wedding of Sarah and Andrew at Glen yr Afon in Usk, South Wales.  Sarah and Andrew chose to have their winter civil wedding at the Glen yr Afon Hotel in Usk.  Sarah got ready with some close friends and family in the bridal suite.  The ceremony room looked amazing as always at the Glen yr Afon.  The weather was dry and we were able to take all the family portraits outside.  We used the grounds of the hotel to take the bridal portraits.  There was some lovely warm lighting which a surprising amount of colour for this time of year.
