Wedding photography in Bangor and 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. 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:

Wedding photography in Llandudno

Steve and Gail were married at Bodysgallen Hall, which is located just outside Llandudno in North Wales. The Hall is a manor house steeped in history, providing plenty of opportunities for atmospheric photography. For Steve and Gail's wedding, the glorious weather gave us an opportunity to make the most of the hall's wonderful gardens.

After Jane, our female photographer, carried out a series of images of the bride getting ready, we all decamped to the Wynn Room for the ceremony. Then it was a case of choosing all the best parts of the gardens to make the most of the location.

Thank you for the lovely photographs!

These are just a few of the images we created for the couple:

As you can see from the images, Bodysgallen Hall provides plenty of lovely locations for wedding photography. But the day was made all the more special by all the little details created by Steve and Gail. We particularly loved the colour scheme, with the dusky pinks of the flowers complementing the soft sage green of the bridesmaids' dresses. We also liked Gail's classic Hollywood glamour, with a beautiful Dior-style dress and a splash of red lipstick.

And we'd definitely recommend the venue to anyone considering a medium-sized wedding. The Wynn Room is a pretty space, while the Hall's interior and exterior provides plenty of scope for romantic pictures.
