Mel & Jamie’s wedding at Craig Y Nos Castle




Mel & Jamie had travelled down from the west midlands to get married at Craig Y Nos Castle.




with the wonderful british weather doing its best to keep us inside, and not getting a chance to get the shots at the country park and Castle grounds,  we took advantage of other areas in and around the castle keeping Mel & Jamie dry 🙂

September was a busy month and before we realise October is over too!

The Coach House Clydach was our first call were we attend the christening party of Kelsey Mae, a beautiful little girl just a few months old.  It was a well attended event and the parents asked us to attend to take shots of the friends and family on this memorable occasion so that everyone would have something to remember the day.   As usual at events we set up our mini studio and printed  9” x 6” prints on the day so everybody could take away a lovely memento of the day.

Another event which we love doing each year is the Golf & Archery Tournament at the Grove Golf Club organised by Joanne Popham  for the  James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer.  We’ve been their preferred photographer for their events now for 2 years!  (We also covered the half marathon last weekend, so we’ll get some photos up from this too!)

At the end of September we photographed the Pre-wedding shoot of Lowrie & Barry who were getting married at the beginning of October at St Mary’s Church in Pontyates.  We did the shoot at Paxton Tower , it was a dry day but quite blustery .  It was a beautiful location with the Paxton Tower and the amazing views over carmarthenshire.  On the big day, although the weather wasn’t great we managed to get to the tower for the post ceremony shot – luckily Lowrie was equipped with her pink umbrella and pink wellies!  (images to follow)

Cowboys and Indians at The Marriott Hotel, Swansea!

We very often get asked to cover the photography at corporate events – all of which we enjoy doing, but this event with Macmillan Books seems to stand out the most!

They employed an event company to decorate the Marriott and it has to be said, they did an amazing job of incorporating the Cowboy & Indian theme in the function room including a bucking bronco too!

There were some great efforts with the fancy dress from the staff!

Macmillan Books had used our pre payment option and  required of 75 prints  at 9 x 6inch, asking us to pick the 75 images to print from all that we had taken, Ready for the MD to present to the staff,  we printed the images, put them in mounts and sealed them into clear bags all ready for them by 10pm.

RSPCA Dog Show – Sunday 24th July 2011

At Jenkin’s Photography we don’t do JUST weddings, we cover a whole range of photography but one of our favourite annual events is the RSPCA Llys Nini Dog Show in Penllegaer!

We spent the day walking around the show, taking snaps of the dogs (and their owners).   Not the usual dog portraits that we do but it has its advantages as all the dogs were on leads – but on the other hand the show had plenty of distractions which made it all the more interesting!

For every photo we printed on the day (and afterwards on our website) we donated 10% back to the charity.  Many dog owners proudly went away with the photos of their dogs as we were able to print out on the day as we took our full equipped Event trailer along and of course our trusted wireless chip and pin machine!  We’d be lost without it!

One character that brightens up any event is local boy & radio presenter, Kev Johns!  And what a hero he is…. he managed to pack 3 charity events into the day!  Starting off with the Race for Life, then the Dog Show followed by another charity event at TwoCann Cafe in SA1!  The last time we’d spoken with Kev was on the bus at the Swans Promotion Parade!

The dog show raised over £5k on the day – the most they’ve raised at the Dog Show!  And is seems to be getting bigger each year and no wonder as it is a great day out for the family.
