About me

Hello  – Welcome to my blog!

In this post I’m going to tell you a little bit about myself. The rest of the blog will be my take on wedding photography and film, with examples of my work.

About me:

I live in Bethesda, North Wales, with my wife Caroline (just married!) and little boy Jac.

I’ve recently embarked on a career as a wedding photographer and film maker, which has been a really exciting move.

My first love is photography, and prior to doing weddings I worked for the Daily Post in North Wales. My photography has been published in national magazines and I’m currently working on an art project funded by the Arts Council of Wales (the Heglu stuff).

My job title at the Daily Post was a ‘digital journalist’, and I was in charge of all the online video content for the whole of North Wales. It was there that I developed my video camera and editing skills.

My background in journalism and the arts definitely help me get the best out of weddings. I love getting great photographs and film shots and I think that comes through in my work.

You can see more of what I’ve done at the two websites above, or get in touch to discuss what I can do for you 🙂

All the best,

My wedding

Tom and Caroline

I got married a week ago today – I can’t believe it’s come and gone already!

Caroline and I got married at Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw down the Lleyn, in a little village called Llanbedrog between Abersoch and Pwllheli.

It was an amazing day. We were very fortunate with the weather, and caught a sunny day in amongst a lot of rain.

The actual ceremony seemed very quick. I think the registrar may have hurried through it slightly because our son Jac was being quite a handful.

He didn’t manage to steal the limelight, however, and Caroline looked stunning. I looked pretty good as well 🙂 (although I look pretty daft in the photo above).

We then went out on to the lawns at the front of the gallery and had our photos taken.

Thanks to Paul Houghoughi and Cory West for taking photos, and my 2nd cousin Sam (who works for Sky Sports) for doing some video.

The whole thing made me realise how important it is to get good wedding photos and a wedding video. The day is over so quickly, you really appreciate being able to look back on it.

If you’re looking for somewhere to get married in North Wales I would recommend Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw. It’s very picturesque, near the beach, and the catering company there were excellent.

Site finished!

… well the beta version anway.

I’ve spent a few days this week plugging away at this wedding site. It’s taken quite a while to put together because I’m not a web designer and I’ve had to learn a lot of new stuff along the way.

Many thanks to Kate Watkiss ( a Bethesda based web designer) for starting me off, and to Alasdair McLeay for comments and criticism.

It’s now time to move on to some marketing, I think I’ll start with friends on Facebook.
