Susan and Mark’s Wedding (April 2011)

We were blessed with lovely weather in April this year and we had the pleasure of taking photographs at some great weddings.

Our April started off with Susan & Mark‘s late afternoon wedding at Oxwch Bay Hotel where we’d been with them just 5 weeks earlier taking some pre-wedding photographs.

Even though Susan & Mark hadn’t had any professional photography done before, they were both great in front of the camera and seemed to really enjoy it!  It’s always a great relief to see the couples at ease with us as it re-assures them that they don’t need to worry about the photography on their big day and they certainly didn’t!

When their big day arrived we were greeted with possibly one of the most chilled out and relaxed couples we’ve come across in our whole time of taking photos at Weddings!  And considering many of their guests had be frantically calling them to tell them there were problems with the traffic in Swansea, it really didn’t seem to phase them!

Apart from a few guests arriving a little bit late to the ceremony everything went smoothly!

We love taking photographs at Oxwich Bay, the scenery is simply beautiful and the marquee at the hotel was stunning too!  They had done a really good job decorating it!

Susan & Mark had only initially planned to have a CD of their wedding photographs, however they seemed to enjoy it so much they’ve opted to have an album too!

This week at Jenkins Photography Swansea…

We’ve had a busy couple of weeks here a Jenkins Photography Swansea but they say that variety is the spice of life don’t they?!

Enjoyed a lovely day down Mumbles doing some pre-wedding photography with Jessica and Paul for their wedding in a few weeks time… lets hope the weather comes back for them!

Lots of editing pictures for some of the recent weddings we’ve done but the most interesting day has to be our trip to Rhosilli & Oxwich. We’d been asked by a customer to take some landscape photographs of the Gower so she could  then donate them to the Cancer ward in Morriston Hospital. It was such a pleasure to be asked to do this. After spending a great afternoon taking shots we jumped back in the car to head back to Pontardulais only to break down! Luckily we rescued fairly quickly and whisked back!

So our week ahead is a couple of School Proms to photograph at Parc y Scarlets Stadium and Marriott Hotel No weddings this weekend, but maybe that’s a good thing with the weather taking a turn for the worse! Lots more coming up in July and August!
