Vale Hotel Wedding Photography
The Vale Hotel and Spa in Hensol was the location for Nicola & Ryan’s fab wedding day! Nicola got ready at her parent’s house, she was back from the hairdresser when we arrived with her 2 Bridesmaids and Mum having their make up applied. The first person to start to get ready was Dad as he wore a kilt of Cunningham tartan and it took him 40 minutes to put on! The Bridesmaids got in to their Teal dresses from Ab Fab and with the help of Mum, Karen, they helped Nicola in to her gorgeous dress from Perfections, Cardiff. Some more family members in their respective tartan kilts arrived, not long before Nicola was ready to get in to her car from the fab Perfect Days company to be driven to the hotel. We arrived before Nicola and took some photographs of Ryan and his family and Groomsmen outside the conservatory where they had their ceremony. They all looked very smart in their grey suits and teal cravats (Ryan’s was cream to match Nicola) that were hired from Oxford House in Blaengarw. It was a perfect sunny day and after the ceremony everybody went outside on to the terrace overlooking the golf course, where we photographed them in their respective families and generally enjoying themselves. The Wedding Breakfast was served after the speeches and whilst the room was made up for the evening reception we were able to take Nicloa and Ryan back outside to take advantage of the stunning sunset. The evening was kicked off with Nicola & Ryan cutting their cake which was from Lavendar Cottage, Ewenny and the band, Perfect Day, who we have already photographed this year, got everyone up dancing straight away after the first dance!
