We always find that each wedding has a special little twist to it and no wedding is the same!
Louise and Tom’s wedding in April this year saw a few special guests in attendance! In amongst the usual relatives, friends and colleagues was Oscar… the dog and a few of his friends too!
People usually say that you shouldn’t work with Children or Dogs, but Oscar was a lovely dog and proved to be great in front of the camera. Our pre-wedding shoots are usually just the bride and groom, but on this occasion we were accompanied by Oscar! But I don’t think Louise and Tom could have left him at home as we discovered that Craig y Nos Country Park is a place they frequent for regular walks or what Joanne and I would call hikes!
On the day of the wedding we started off at Craig y Nos Castle where we met Louise’s mum who was more nervous than the Bride! It might have been something to do with Louise preferring Jeans to dresses in her day-to-day life… with talk that guests thought she might even turn up in her jeans! Louise looked lovely in her dress and her mum certainly agreed!
The next surprise of the day was when a noisy VW Campervan arrived to take Louise to the Church down the road. Tom had arranged it as a surprise for Louise – she was over the moon!
The Callwen Church where the ceremony took place is a lovely little church allowing the wedding to be very intimate and personal. And soon discovered that it also has great acoustics when the vicar got his guitar out and began playing a song for the couple to which the whole wedding party joined in with!!!
After the ceremony Joanne and I headed down to the Country Park behind Tom and Louise in the campervan to take some more shots. Little did we know this would turn into a hike around the Castle and lake – It was interesting trying to keep up with them as they were full speed ahead – luckily Joanne and I had come prepared with sensible footwear!
Louise & Tom are a lovely couple and this was added to when they did a collection at the church where half of the donations were given to the church and the other half to The Dogs Trust – a great cause, close to their hearts!
Once again Jenkins Photography will be at the Craig y nos Wedding Fayre on Sunday 11th April 2010.
We will have a new sample wedding story book on display with a stunning Crystal Glaze cover
Page from the new sample
We look forward to meeting you
For all our Wedding clients we offer a Free pre wedding shoot, this gives our clients a chance to see how Joanne and i work, but more importantly we also have a chance to see how they are in front of the camera and a good chance to get to know each other a little better.
For you as clients its much better know your photographers then to have met them a year or 2 ago when you made the booking. then not seeing them till your wedding day.
Steve & Jess @ Craig Y Nos Castle
Steve & Jess are getting married at Craig Y Nos Castle in December, We had the pleasure of spending sometime with them in the grounds of the castle in the pouring rain yesterday Nov 22, we spent some time in the park area taking photographs while they had fun in the rain before we all had a hot tea/coffee and a bite to eat at the park cafe which was most welcome by us all and recommended when you visit.
