Leah and Philip’s Wedding (April 2011) – St Davids Hotel & Spa Cardiff

April certainly was a busy month for wedding photography for us!  The weekend of the 24th saw us taking a trip to Cardiff Bay to the St Davids Hotel & Spa for Leah & Philip’s wedding.

We’d visited just a few weeks prior for the pre-wedding shoot!  The weather wasn’t great but we still managed to get some great shots over looking the bay!  Leah and Philip were wrapped up nice and warm!

On the big day we arrived at the hotel around lunch time to be greeted by a hotel room full of bridesmaids on the 7th floor having lots of fun!  The bride didn’t seem to be nervous but there was plenty of Champagne and Strawberries about, that might have helped!

Leah looked beautiful with her necklace and brooch from her grandmother…

… and so did the gents with their kilts and thistle button holes!

The wedding saw guests from all over the world – New Zealand, Scotland, Ireland and Australia.

The ceremony took place in the hotel where they had a harpist playing and a toastmaster to keep everything flowing!

After the ceremony we ventured outside to take photos around the hotel including the grass verge!

A few interesting group shots too – a more traditional photo taken from the 1st floor balcony and another outside where they played ‘Where’s Wally?’  – can you spot him?

It was a lovely day with a lot of emotion – a very close family and a beautiful day in all!
