Wedding Photography Oldwalls Leisure, Gower

Our second time photographing at Oldwalls in the Gower and as with the first one, an honour to photograph a family that we know well! Lydia and her cute daughter Fifi and gorgeous Bridesmaids, Rhiannon (her Sister) Daniella, Desta & Helen all got ready at The Gower Hotel in Bishopston, where we photographed the detail that accessoried Lydia’s stunning dress Sincerity from Perfection in Cardiff and the girls in their matching silk kimono dressing gowns! Lydia was lucky to be able to call upon friends to help her to create her perfect day, from the beautiful Bridal bouquet, Bridesmaid’s hand corsages, button holes, decorated hearts and candelbras etc. all expertly arranged by her Sister-in-law Rebecca, to her own hairdresser Katie and Alison a friend who is a make up artist.  A pleasant surprise, to Lydia, arrived in the form of a pale blue VW Campervan to transport Lydia and the girls to Oldwalls supplied by Colin at Lovebug, kindly ordered by Rich’s Mum, Dee, knowing that Lydia loves them!!! We travelled across the common to north Gower, arriving just before the Bride where she joined her remaining bridal party of their nieces as Flower Girls and her son Alex who was a handsome Page Boy! Rich and his Best Man wore smart navy suits, complimented by his 6 Ushers in grey suits matching the Bridesmaids from Slater Menswear! Lydia’s Sister Rhiannon walked her down the aisle, a very emotional moment, following Fifi & Alex. After a beautiful civil ceremony, where Alex played his guitar for his Mum & Dad and the guests, everyone lined up outside in the courtyard to throw confetti as Lydia & Rich walked through the shower of lavender! The weather was stunning and we were able to use all aspects of the venue for all of the family, friends and Bridal photographs! The lovely Dawn from Venus videos captured everything and got everyone involved in contributing to the Marryoke, which kept guests entertained. Rhiannon started the speeches and made such a good job that it was hard to follow, but Pete the Best Man and Dave, Rich’s Dad did a grand job! Another surprise was Lee (aka Trigger) had written a short song for the gorgeous couple, which was hilarious! Once the First Dance had taken place, The Supernaturals kept everyone on the dancefloor with their amazing renditions of Motown & Soul tracks, only stopping for everyone to go outside to see the fireworks!
