Dan & Nia’s Wedding at the Waterfront church Swansea, & Oxwich Hotel

As with all our wedding couples we start off with a pre wedding shoot or getting to know you shoot, usually 4-6 weeks before the big day, either in the Studio or on location, this is a great way to get used to having professional images taken by your photographer, and a good time for us to see what you likes or dislike in various image styles.

We started of at the home of Nia’s parents, with the beautiful Nia & her mother & 2 sisters, everything was going to plan, the weather was dry the sun was out, what more could you want for this time of year

We got some lovely photos of Nia getting ready , her mum was busy doing the back of the dress up , which can be really difficult! but we got there in the end, with a little help from Joanne!

Dan & Nia had some of their photo s taken at the Oxwich castle  what a really nice place,  we  would recommend this to anyone getting married at the Oxwich Bay hotel.

The Reception was held at the Oxwich Bay hotel, due to the time of year , the reception was held in the hotel and not the marquee . Every body loved the Band what was playing while they were having food, only a young band , they played from various erra s so there was something for everyone to enjoy & listen to…..

Katie & Steve

September was a quiet month for weddings but the 10th September saw us covering Katie & Steve’s wedding from the Bridal Prep right through to the first dance.  A long day, but a beautiful day!

The start of the day saw us covering the bridal prep at Katie’s parents house in Birchgrove , we arrived to a nervous mum and dad rushing around making sure that everything was going to plan!

Katie had 3 Bridesmaids who wore purple dresses accompanied by a flower girl in a beautiful white dress.

The bride wasn’t nervous, but we think the nerves started to kick in around about the time when she put her dress on.  Lots of tears from everyone as she looked like a princess, simply beautiful!

We headed to the church in Llansamlet a little earlier than the bride to get some shots of the groom and best man, plus a couple of the page boys in their suits.


Steve was a little nervous by the time Katie walked down the aisle, but it all went to plan with no hiccups!

As the weather was a little damp and the rain started whilst we were in the church we covered some of the shots of the family inside the church.

We headed to Neath Abbey for the post ceremony shoot.  A very popular place for wedding couples! As it was quite damp underfoot Steve carried Katie to where we were taking their images.  It was quite a fun shoot with lots of laughter!

Luckily the rain stopped by the time we arrived at Manor Park for the reception.

We stayed to cover the speeches and the first dance where the best man final job was to burst a huge balloon filled with smaller balloons and confetti!

Although Katie & Steve only got married on the 10th September this year, they have already chosen their images and taken delivery of their beautiful album with 14 x 11 inch prints from Mario Acerbonie Italian wedding albums “Made with Love”
