Gemma and Kevin’s Wedding (April 2011)

April proved to be a very sunny month, and this was no exception for Gemma and Kevin’s wedding at Manor Park Hotel, Clydach!

Just a few weeks prior to their big day we did our usual pre-wedding shoot on location at Manor Park where we had a pleasure of meeting Katie, their daughter!  It was important for Gemma & Kevin to make sure Katie was comfortable around Jo and I and by the end of the shoot she certainly was!  She loved the camera!  The couple  were a little nervous about having their pics done to start, but like Katie, at the end they were loving the camera too! (And the camera loved them too!)

On their big day, Jo and I went to their family home were we snapped the bridal preparations!  The bride was a little nervous, but most brides are – absolutely nothing to worry about as everything was going to plan and more importantly on time!

The day ran very smoothly and we took pictures throughout including the ceremony and afterwards around the grounds.

We love taking pictures at Manor Park, especially on the balcony as there is so much natural light.

We stayed until after the speeches as we wanted to get pictures of the guests and make sure the  picture mount was signed by the guests.  This always goes down well with the couple as it’s such a personal memory of their day that can be treasured forever!
