Wedding photography at Bodnant Welsh Food

The Bodnant Estate provides a range of stunning locations for wedding photography. You can have your wedding photographs taken in Bodnant Garden (click here for more details) or get married at Bodnant Welsh Food.

Helen and Jason had a beautifully simple wedding at the Bodnant Welsh Food Centre. The ceremony room, which is named the Pochin Room, is light, modern and airy, and provided a great location for wedding photography. We particularly liked the hurricane lamps positioned down the aisle, and are pleased to report that we managed not to trip over a single one!

Thank you for the lovely photos, they’re beautiful!

We were briefed to create natural, relaxed images of the ceremony and of the couple afterwards. We love how the couple’s young daughter helps out with the reading and then remains centre stage! These are a small selection of the images taken - we think you’ll agree that Helen looks absolutely stunning:

We love Helen’s vintage-style look and the pops of red created by her lipstick and bouquet. Overall we thought that Bodnant made a relaxed and modern venue, which we’d recommend to anyone planning an informal day, especially foodies!

Wedding photography in Bangor and at the Victoria in Menai Bridge

Catrin and Jamie had a grand yet meaningful wedding ceremony at Bangor Cathedral, followed by a reception at the Victoria Hotel in Menai Bridge.

We were asked to photograph the events at both the Cathedral and the Victoria. The locations in Bangor and Menai Bridge provided wonderful scope for wedding photography, and the four-hour photography package chosen by the couple meant that we had plenty of time to cover the wedding in both places.

Here are just a few of the images we created for the couple.

The time before the wedding is a great time for capturing details of the venue (in this case, the soaring grandeur of the Cathedral), plus the groom greeting his guests. Don't you love that wonderful hug in the image below?!

We were asked to discreetly take images of the ceremony from the back of the Cathedral. It was wonderful to have the space to move around to create different angles:

We captured the informal moments after the ceremony, and then created heaps of group shots to include the almost 100 guests. Our favourite is the image of the bridesmaids, best woman and groomsmen below as we love the informality of the little jokey detail - can you spot it?

Then it was off to the Victoria Hotel in Menai Bridge for more wedding photography. The couple's family and friends are very important to them, so we made sure to capture the groups of happily chatting people. As you can see from the images below, the Vic has a lovely view and SPECTACULAR garden plants:

One of the things we love about this wedding is the quirky little details. The table decorations all had literary themes, ranging from Game of Thrones to Pride & Prejudice, and we made sure that we captured all the details. Here are some of our favourites:

Wedding photography in Ruthin

Iain and Lisa had a lovely summer wedding in and around Ruthin. It was a beautifully relaxed afternoon shared with close friends, followed by a massive party the next day. The weather was perfect and because the couple chose our 4-hour Stellar package, there was plenty of time to photograph the celebrations across four different locations.

The pictures are amazing, fabulous, you’ve done a really good job, they’re just what we wanted.

We started at the couple's small-holding, which was a great way to capture the couple's lifestyle, personalities and animals. It meant that the dogs, the cats and the chickens could be part of the day. Here are just a few of the images:

Then it was off to Ruthin Registry Office for a simple marriage ceremony. The ceremony room at the Registry Office works well for photography, as it's very spacious and has lots of light. After the ceremony, the party walked through the pretty streets to Ruthin Castle, which is a great location for wedding photography:

Our third stop was the bridge across the road from the Drover's Arms, with a fine view of Moel Famau. We photographed the couple and their friends on and around the bridge, with Moel Famau in the background. Finally, we all went to the reception at the Three Pigeons pub in Graigfechan near Ruthin, where we were able to capture more of the nice little details created by the couple. Here's a small selection of the images:
