Nicola and Jason’s Wedding at Norton House, Mumbles

It’s been a busy wedding season for us this year and it has seen us visiting many new venues, one of which we went to at the end  of July for Nicola & Jason’s wedding at Norton House Hotel.  A very beautiful and grand venue in the Mumbles, Swansea!

We visited the venue approx 2-3 weeks before for the pre-wedding shoot and unlike previous years in July, the weather was quite nice and sunny!  With most couples having their photos taken professionally for the first time it can be quite daunting.  Nicola was a little apprehensive however after we’d taken a few shots she soon became more comfortable.  It always helps these days having the digital camera to show the couples what the photos look like… we think Nicola liked them.  We certainly did!

The big day finally arrived and we pulled up to the Norton House on a sunny but windy.  Not bad conditions for a wedding!

The bridal prep took place in the rooms at Norton House which really are beautiful!

The ceremony was lovely… and quite emotional too.

After the ceremony had taken place we headed down to Oystermouth Castle which had reopened just the week before as it had some major refurbishment done. Although the Castle was still having some construction work done we managed to make sure that no scaffolding were in the photos!

More photos were taken back in the grounds of Norton House including those of the guests.

An overall very chilled and relaxed wedding!  And we have to include these couple of shots we got…. there seemed to be a ‘Men in Black’ or ‘Blues Brother’ feel to them don’t you think?!

Hayley and Adam’s Wedding Photos (April 2011)

April was a busy old month  for us for photographing at weddings– so thankful that the weather was beautiful! Shame we can’t say about the weather over the last few days!

Thursday 21st April was the day we photographed the lovely couple Hayley & Adam Lewis at the Towers Hotel, Llandarcy.

Just a few weeks prior we’d met them to do their pre-wedding shoot at Neath Abbey!  Like alot of our Brides-to-be, Hayley was a little nervous about having her photos taken so we did the best we could to make her feel relaxed!  One of the techniques we used to overcome this is to not look directly into the camera!  We think the photos were fab, especially the ones of Hayley smiling!

When the big day finally arrived, Hayley and Adam had a great day and we did our best to blend into the background – taking natural photos of the bridal prep, ceremony and group photos.  We felt this would be the best way to capture the day – a little different to the more ‘traditional’ formal photos but alot more natural!  This is Joanne’s favourite picture! They just looks so happy and Hayley looks really pretty too!

We revisited Neath Abbey for some photos on the day and captured the VW Campervan – one of Adam’s favourites!  So that makes it 2 VW vans in just 1 month!

An earlier finish that normal as we left around 6ish, just after taking pictures of the cutting of the cake and some more group photos outside!

Hayley & Adam loved their wedding photos – and why not?  We think they did great on the day!  They’ll be picking up their traditional wedding album soon with a brush metal plate on the front!  A popular option!
