This was a fairy tale wedding for Jo and Paul at the wonderful Chateau Plas Rhianfa on the beautiful island of Anglesey. The Chateau overlooks the Menai Straits with a view towards Snowdonia. It was not the warmest day and bridesmaids wrapped up in furs and we were also able to get out into the grounds and down to the waters edge.
With the castle and the beautiful Menai Straits and North Wales in the background people enjoyed a very atmospheric wedding. Made even more so by Oona’s playing (Oona Linnett – harpist) as the guests wait for the bride, the brides entrance, for the signing of the register and for the Newlyweds exit.
Lots of candle light in this season add to a magical atmosphere despite the weather, and the Chateau made sure these were added to all the rooms. Lanterns protected guests and those walking down the aisle during the ceremony.
After the group shots were taken we walked down to the Straits and found this mini-tractor on the way – had to be photographed!
Back to romance on the shores of the Menai Straits with Bangor and the pier in the background. Weather also getting a bit ‘atmospheric’ as the clouds role in.
A privileged to photograph people at very close and personal moments. Also a great pleasure to enjoy such lovely places and be in the company of wonderful people. It was brilliant being able to travel to the venue, then work, and then returning home with Oona. I am looking forward to working with Oona on many weddings and other events in the future. Clients benefit to from a discount for booking both of us and love the idea of us being a couple providing the sound and vision for their wedding.
