This was a great winter wedding down near Dolgellau at Penmaenuchaf Hall.
Hannah & Stephen are both bike nuts, and had chosen to get married in this part of North Wales so as to be able to go for a morning ride at the Coed-y-Brenin mountain biking tracks.
If your into MTB or cycling of any kind you should definitely check out Coed-Y-Brenin.
It was my first visit to Penmaenuchaf Hall, a really stunning family run stately hotel.
Because this was a December wedding, it got dark early, which of course is a factor when taking photos.
We did most of the group shots outside in the dark, and used the light emitted from a mobile phone to aid with focussing. This resulted in a series with Stephen holding his phone up, as I neglected to tell him to put it down after I’d focussed.
I also couldn’t see what poses or facial expressions people were making, which made checking the shots afterwards more interesting!
I tried drawing some hearts with my torch in a light painting photo, but then figured I’d try drawing a bike.
It looks a bit wobbly, but I was pleased it had even a passing resemblance to a bike because light painting is tricky.
