Wedding film at Portmerion, North Wales, photography at Clandon Park, Guildford, and a little piglet

Well, July was a bit of a crazy month – by far the busiest I’ve had since going fully self-employed about a year ago.

As I type I’m capturing footage from Mair and Iwan’s wedding, which I filmed at Portmeirion on July 2.

It was the first time I’d done a wedding at Portmeirion and it’s a great place to get married from a photo/video point of view. You can see my pics and notes from scouting it out here.

It was a great wedding and the guests certainly knew how to enjoy themselves, so I’m looking forward to the final edit.

I shot it using a canon xha1 (a video camera) and a canon 7d (a stills camera with video capability), and this was another first for me. It will be interesting to see how well the two video sources cut together… I think it’s going to look pretty tasty.

The day after that I was photographing a good friend of mine’s wedding down in Guildford, a five hour drive away.

They got married at Clandon Park, another stunning location. I think my favourite pic of the day is this one, although I’m not sure I was even looking through the viewfinder.

Helen, the bride, looked amazing and I liked this shot through the trees.

Bryn, the groom, scrubbed up pretty well too.

In July I also won a contract to shoot a food directory for Cadwyn Clwyd, an agency working on behalf of Denbighshire and Flintshire councils. This involved driving all over the two counties and visiting producers, farmers, farm shops, markets, and people working out of their kitchens. I was given a very tight deadline so it was pretty intensive, but also a lot of fun.

I do commercial work under the name Golau Media, which I’m in the process of building a site for, a job that keeps getting bumped down the list of things to do.

These piglets were really cute and almost made me consider going back to being a veggie.

In July I also filmed an art/nature event at Gwaith Powdr reserve near Porthmadog, Gwynedd.

It was part of a series of events to promote Discover Gwynedd, a new initiative to promote Gwynedd and the wildlife that can be found here, very worthwhile I think.

Thanks to the talented and super-busy artist Megan Broadmeadow for getting me involved in that one.

July also saw a big increase in inquiries for my wedding photos and film work, so it’s been a very exciting time for me. Caroline, my wife, has started helping with things like album design etc and making sure I’m organised, with efficient workflows and the such like. It’s working out pretty well so far.

Ok, final tape of Mair & Iwan’s wedding has finished capturing, let’s take a look see…
