pre-wedding photography scouting trips

I’ve got a couple of weddings coming up in North Wales.

The first is Clare and Darren’s, who are getting married at the Tabernacle Chapel in Conwy.

I met up with the caretaker Ifor Smart to take a look round and take some test photos.

Also went to the Imperial Hotel in Llandudno where they’re having the reception etc.

This angle looks like the best place to photograph the bride walking down the aisle.

Will be a bit easier on the day, because this was early in the morning with sun blowing the highlights on the windows.

There’s a ‘balcony’ around the chapel, and this looks like a good vantage point to photograph the ceremony.

My assistant photographer will be positioned here.

The chapel is right next to Conwy’s castle walls, which will look amazing if the weather’s nice, just replace my tripod with the bride and groom (bearing in mind it is on November 28).

There’s plenty of places to do group shots near the Imperial hotel in Llandudno.

The next wedding is Debra and Andy’s, who are getting married in Bethesda down the road from where I live on December 11.

Their reception is at Seiont Manor.

My wife Caroline will be filming their wedding.

I will post some scouting photos next week.
