Last Tuesday I drove to The Manor Hotel in Crickhowell for the wedding of Carl and Dawn. This lovely couple have been together already for sixteen years and were finally ‘tying the knot’! It was a small intimate mid-week wedding on a gloriously hot, early summer’s day. Dawn was ‘given away’ by her son Sion-Paul and her daughter Kiawah was her matron of honour. It was a very relaxed, informal wedding for a fun couple who are very much in love and so comfortable with each other. I don’t think I’ve ever photographed such an affectionate couple! They were both more than happy to ignore me and my camera and enjoy themselves!! Carl is a magician and entertainer as were several of his friends and guests so of course there were cards and other entertaning tricks taking place throughout the afternoon.
The ‘wedding breakfast’ was a lovely outdoor BBQ in the beautiful grounds of The Manor Hotel. Being outdoors for the meal was glorious as you have the stunning views of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Carl and Dawn are now on their honeymoon in the Isle of Wight so I wish them both a very long and happy marriage in the years to come.
I hope you enjoy viewing a selection of the photos below from their wedding:
