St Donat’s Castle and Church was the perfect setting on this sunny day in August! Jo got ready at her Mum Kathy’s house in Porthcawl along with her Sister Katie who was Matron of Honour, David’s Sister, Laura Bridesmaid and Flower Girl Darcey.Helen from Grove Videos was with us to capture them all helping Jo in to her Phil Collins Taffeta dress and add the gorgeous accessories. It was so nice to go outside and capture them all in the garden complete with their beautiful bouquets from Gutteridges in Porthcawl before heading off to St Donat’s Church where Alan from Grove Videos was with David, his Mum, Sue , Best Man, Chris and Ushers James & Eurfyl and page boys Josh & Finley, who all looked smart in their suits from Dyfed Menswear. Father Anthony Beer was very welcoming as usual. Once Jo had arrived in the stunning Vintage Rolls Royce supplied by Nigel at Rumney Wedding Carsher Mum walked her down the aisle to a nervous David. After a beautiful and sometimes humorous service, we took the short drive to the beach below St Donat’s Castle with Jo & David and even though the tide was in the cliffs and sea provided a stunning backdrop! Bryan Gunton kept the guests amused with magic tricks until it was time to enjoy the Wedding breakfast provided by Mr Banks and his fabulous staff from Town and Country Catering, proceedings included speeches and cutting of the cake that was made by Designers Cakes from Janet in Neath. We just had some time to take a few more photographs in the grounds (and the Ladies toilets!) before Justin Banwell from Black Panther Discosplayed their First Dance and kept the dance floor full continuously after that. Rachel the Wedding Plannerkept an eye on the whole day. We can’t wait to hear about their adventures from their honeymoon in Canada!
