Sometimes I’ve got to give people a fair bit of direction when I’m taking their photo.
Other times, people are naturally confident and relaxed, and perhaps a bit silly.
It was a lot of fun meeting up with Laura, Dafydd and their kids for this pre-wedding shoot.
If it was anything to go by, their wedding at the Vic in Llanberis on Saturday will be a blast!
Congratulations to Roxsanne & Scott on their relaxed and fun wedding at Llyn Vyrnwy Hotel.
I drove past Bala and the single track road that winds through the valley is simply stunning, although I nearly got caught out by snow and ice on the roads.
Lake Vyrnwy has a magical and romantic feel and, with the church near the hotel, it is quite the place to get married.
Congratulations to Kelly & Richard on their wedding at Plas Dinas – a wedding venue in North Wales.
It was class.
This is the first wedding I’ve photographed at Plas Dinas Country House, which is on the outskirts of Bontnewydd, near Caernarfon.
I had a great time at Kelly & Becky’s Wedding at Craig y Dderwen hotel in Betws y Coed.
Kelly’s mum made the wedding dresses – some ninja sewing skills.
Kelly & Becky are both firefighters, so that was part of the theme on the day.
The hotel is very nice – the bridal suite has a hot tub overlooking the valley, river and gardens.
The weather was intermittent torrential downpours – the occasional downside of north Wales weddings – but I think it added a certain drama.
I love doing kids and family shoots!
It’s great to do them outside, but if the weather’s bad there’s always the option of an indoor studio too.
Until December 15th I’m offering family shoots for £20.

Wales is blessed with some of the most stunning places to get married.
Bachwen Cottages near Clynnog Fawr, Gwynedd, is one such wedding venue.
A secluded handful of cottages and fields overlook the sea and setting sun – perfect for a marquee wedding reception, with the service held in a converted barn-style building.
Congratulations to Kat & Tom on their wedding there 🙂
All the elements came together to make Hannah & Rhys’ Anglesey beach wedding look pretty spectacular.
From being at the barbers with Rhys in the morning, to his dad driving his classic car down to Rhoscolyn beach in the evening, it was a whole lot of fun.
And with Hannah’s eye for detail, their boho diy styled wedding was right up my street 🙂 .
Having been a wedding photographer for going on ten years, it’s always nice to have a wedding that’s different in some way.
Tammy and Mike’s punk wedding at Gwynant Barns at the foot of Snowdonia definitely had a unique feel.
Not only was there loads of very cool looks going on – with them and their guests – but they were also a great laugh and very laid back.
Gwynant barns is an amazing venue, as you can tell from the photos.
It’s been another very busy wedding season, and as per usual I’ve haven’t done a very good job of updating my internet stuff.
These photos are of Sara & Richard on their pre wedding photo shoot at Dinas Dinlle.
They are both very relaxed and this beach a little way past Caernarfon is a great spot for photography.
The sun sets over the sea, and the mountains of Snowdonia can be seen in the other direction.
They got married at Seiont Manor, congratulations to them on their great wedding.
North Wales has more than it’s fair share of stunning wedding venue, but Nant Grwtheyrn near Morfa Nefyn must have one of the best views.
You get there down a steep windy road through a wood of pine trees, and the complex of old Welsh cottages, church, and restaurant sit – secluded – above the cliff tops.
Here are some photos form Emily & Jordan’s Wedding.
It was a great day, although one of the windiest and wettest weddings I’ve photographed. This was bad luck, as the Lleyn Peninsula tends to be better weather wise than here in the mountains.
There was a 10 minute break in the rain in the evening, and we managed to make the most of the view.
I went to school with Alec, so it was nice to catch with him and his new wife Danielle after nearly 20 years!
There were quite a few familiar faces there, so I had a great time.
Carreg Bran has had a make-over since I was last there, and it looks really nice inside.
Here are some of the photos.
