Angharad and Simon’s Wedding at Manor Park House, Swansea (June 2011)

After a fairly quiet month of June, we finished it off with Angharad and Simon’s wedding at Manor Park House in Clydach, Swansea on Friday 24th June 2011.

We’d met up with Angharad and Simon about a month before for the pre-wedding shoot at Neath Abbey.  We quite like this venue for photography as the stonework is great to shoot and has a range of backdrops.

The big day saw us starting off at Birchgrove at Angharad’s parents for the bridal preparation with her 5 bridesmaids.

The ceremony was originally due to take place at St. Josephs Cathedral however as Father Flock had moved to the St. David’s Catholic Church is Swansea City Centre so did the ceremony!

Just as the ceremony was finishing the rain started to pour down as we headed to Neath Abbey!  As always we never leave the studio without our white umbrellas as we can never predict the weather.  It certainly didn’t spoil the wedding shoot!  We managed to take some great photos and also stay dry!

The rain eased off as we headed to the Manor Park Country House, so we were able to take a few more shots!

We stayed on for the evening reception where we captured the Best Man popping the large balloon full of confetti over the newly weds!  It was over in seconds but we managed to get 15 action shots!

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!
