Pre-wedding photo scout at Carreg Mon, Anglesey

Carreg Mon Wedding Photography, Anglesey

I had a look around Carreg Mon Hotel on Anglesey yesterday, in preparation for taking wedding photos at Paul and Helen’s wedding.

For the group shot of everyone I can either shoot downwards from the balcony, or simply get some elevation by walking up the hill slightly.

If it’s raining, there is room in the restaurant area for the group shot, although this would be a fair bit harder with regards lighting and avoiding background distractions.

For smaller groups shots, and shots of Paul and Helen, there is a lot of greenery in the hotel grounds that will be good for backgrounds.

The Hotel itself has a lot of stuff in it – furniture, pictures etc – so there aren’t that many clear backgrounds. I can get round this by using longer focal lengths and blurring backgrounds.

The service/reception room has white walls and ceiling, so colour casts from my flash aren’t a problem. However, there are big beams on the ceiling, so will have to place off camera flash so as these don’t get in the way.

There are some seating areas which are quite nicely lit from window light in the bar area.

I did walk down to the Menai Strait, but discounted it because of the mud and seaweed. If we’re struggling with weather etc there is a nice fall-off of light underneath the railway bridge. It doesn’t look like a great location, but I think it could work.

    Hi there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My weblog looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to
    resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Many thanks!
