Beautiful end of Summer wedding – Lake Vyrnwy Hotel and Spa

Lake Vyrnwy in Mid-Wales is a wonderful setting for a lovely wedding between two very happy people. We were also fortunate that the couple booked both Oona ( to play the wedding music on her harp, and myself as their wedding photographer. The venue was very helpful and we intend to visit The Lake Vyrnwy Hotel and Spa ourselves sometime.

We always get their early to set up and recce and then I go off to photograph the bridal preparations. E was stunning to begin with and the make up artist and hair stylist made everything as E wanted it.

Brides must look their best and everyone works hard
I always enjoy time with the bride and her friends before the wedding

E’s mother, father and sister were there to give encouragement.

Sisters are important to brides! Having grown up together this is a special day, sister bridesmaids get to dress up too!

Then there is the final moment of reveal when everyone stands back and the bride is ready! The dress is antique lace with subtle blush of dusky purple in the flowers.

Then it is down to the ceremony! A little walk and down the stairs to the drawing room which will have views of the Lake. Just outside the ceremony room the last moments for last thoughts and glances.

After the ceremony I still stay in contact with brides and grooms with the pictures presented in a private gallery on my website and the USB or DVD to make and post. Later on I often get a call to take pictures of other family events as they come along, especially the babies and children! It was a very pleasant and tasty surprise when E and C sent us this thank you card and a small present of cake. I hope I can do a photographic service for them in the future.

We are always moved and pleased by a gift of appreciation from those we play for and photograph
