Last Saturday, I had the privilege of photographing the beautiful wedding of Jack & Katie at Bryn Meadows Gof Hotel & Spa.
I arrived at Katie’s mum & dad’s to find a very calm and relaxed atmosphere. Katie’s hairdresser Abi was putting the finishing touches to her hair whch looked amazing (hair and make-up by Minxies). Everything appeared to be supremely organised with great support from mum, dad and Katie’s two big sisters. Her neices Ella-May and Ava were to be her flower girls and dressed in Katie’s gorgeous rose-gold colour scheme. She also had her handsome nephew Lucas as her pageboy. Her big brother Mark had the honour of driving Katie and their dad to the ceremony. This was held at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Treharris. It was a lovely service with the hall completely full of friends and relatives.
The Reception Details:
Once the legalities were over, we were out into the glorious sunshine. After some mingling and a big group photo, those joining Katie and Jack at their reception headed over to Bryn Meadows. The hotel has built a fabulous brand new marquee style building called The Fairways. It is fully self-contained away from the main hotel building and they have done a fantastic job. The banquet hall looked stunning with Katie’s rose gold sequinned table and chair decor It was complemented by tall narrow vase table centre-pieces with dusky pink peony’s. The attention to detail was spectaular and after a fabulous three-course meal, the very amusing speeches followed. Both dad’s spoke along with Jack’s little brother Lee as his best man. He highlighted some hilarious details of his big brothers past entreprenenerial skills!
Bryn Meadows has an amaing backdrop for photos. We took full advantage of the beautiful grounds on such a stunning day. We were even privileged to be allowed to drive a golf buggy each to get about as it’s over quite a wide area. As the sun started to lower in the sky, it cast a beautiful golden glow and a much softer light for the photos. The evening guests soon started to arrive and the evening went into full swing with the dancing commencing as the evening buffet was brought out. I hope you will enjoy seeing just a very small selection of the hundreds of fabulous photos that were taken. Katie and Jack I wish you both every happiness for your future as husbad and wife.
