I’ve had the pleasure of photographing two fab Pearl wedding anniversary parties over the last two weekends. This was the first one for Rachel & hubby Atilla celebrating thirty years of happy marriage. Their daughter Lisa contacted me some time ago and said she was organising a surprise party for them. They are a locaal couple so the party was to be at the lovely Cwrt Henllys Restaurant in Cwmbran. Friends and family had all secretly congragated in the lovely conservatory area of Cwrt Henllys. There was some last minute panic for poor Lisa as her paternal Nanny & Grandad (who are in their 80’s) were secretly driving all the way down from Derby. Unfortunately they got lost within a mile or so of the restaurant so mum & dad had already arrived before nanny & grandad made their surprise appearance!
It was a really lovely evening and the buffet meal provided was delicious. Cwrt Henllys which has had a fairly recent change of owners have also been busy upgrading the venue. The little rear garen has been improved so we were all able to congregate there to take some group photos!
I hope you’ll enjoy looking through a small selection of the photos below and I wish Rachel and Atilla many more happy years of marriage. They have a long way to go to catch up Atilla’s parents’ amazing sixty years of marriage!!
