Wedding photography at the Deganwy Quay Hotel

Nicola and Andy were married at St Hilary’s Church in Llanrhos, followed by a reception at the Deganwy Quay Hotel. Here we’ve gathered together for you just a few of the images from the day, which were captured in our 4-hour Stellar package.

Thank you so much for being so lovely and for the lovely photographs! I really appreciate all of your guidance and kind words - it’s rare to come across such down to earth kind people, you are both so good to us, thank you.
— Nicola & Andy, married in Llanrhos

The church is located on the hill at Llanrhos, between Llandudno and Deganwy. It’s an attractive church and makes a pretty backdrop for wedding photography. We were asked not to take pictures of the ceremony, but captured lots of images of the groom waiting, the bride arriving and all the comings and goings:

Instead of confetti, the couple provided bubbles for the guests to blow after the ceremony. This is a great idea for locations where you can’t get permission to throw confetti. And, while guests always enjoy lobbing confetti at the newly married couple, bubbles provide even more fun as everyone gets stuck in!

The Deganwy Quay Hotel is a fabulous location for wedding photography. Its modern, pared-back design showcases your own decorative ideas without over-powering them. A multitude of large windows provides beautiful light. And, of course, the views are amazing, even on the cloudiest day. We captured a wide range of formal and informal images at the hotel, including the pre-reception canapes and drinks, the friendship and family groups and the couple alone:

As you can see, even on a windy day like this one, there are nice locations at the hotel for photography. The zen pool is a calm space, while the lobby provides a striking backdrops for photographs taken from a flattering angle on the staircase.

Once she saw the hotel’s decor, the bride decided on a delicate pink and purple colour scheme. The images below show how pretty the decorations were. We also loved the cake, which looked amazing and was designed by the bride herself:

It was a beautiful wedding which we really enjoyed photographing. And if you’re looking for a contemporary wedding venue, we’d definitely recommend the Deganwy Quay. The staff were extremely helpful and it was a great experience.
