Working as a Cardiff photographer
allows us access to the many fantastic venues that our around our capital city and whilst all weddings are confined to the grounds of venues, we often get a chance to shoot with our couples outside of the venue. City Hall
which is home to the Registry Office
allows us sometimes to do our bridal portraits in the grounds of Sophia Gardens and Bute Park. Immediately outside of the Cardiff Museum also lies an excellent area for floral photo shoots of the bride and groom with many leafy areas and interesting trees that are excellent for close up portrait work.
Below is a slideshow that we created taken from some of our Cardiff Weddings…
After rain and clouds persisted all last week, as a wedding photographer Swansea we were keeping a close eye on the forecast for Sunday . We needn’t have worried because as I drove towards Swansea early Sunday morning the weather turned out to be absolutely stunning. I arrived at Lisa’s parents’ house on Mumbles Road at 9.30am and found everyone in their matching dressing gowns having their finishing touches applied to their makeup and hair.
Karl had arrived at Lisa and Richard’s house in Penllergaer, just the other side of Swansea, early enough to catch the boys before they left for The King Arthur Hotel. There was enough time for him to get the usual ‘groom getting ready looking worried’ photographs and they even had a chance to take a funny ‘Abbey Road’ shot on the local zebra crossing. He then joined me at Lisa’s parents’ to get some final shots of the girls all drinking champagne before we all left for the hotel.
The ceremony was held in the function room at the back of the hotel. Karl covered the front of the service and I covered the rear. This is one of the major advantages of booking two wedding photographers as the ceremony is always covered from two angles. The same goes for the speeches, nothing will be missed!
After the speeches and food (thanks Lisa and Richard for feeding us!) we jumped in my car and headed up to the King Arthur Stone for some more photographs. The stone is a 25 tonne quartz rock perched on the top of the Gower, overlooking the Loughor Estuary. Lisa hitched up her wedding dress and donned her wellies as we headed down the rough path to the stone. The views that greeted us we spectacular. Lisa an Richard posed with the stone and estuary in the background and we managed to get some stunning wedding photographs (with the wellies hidden under the dress of course!).
Whenever we leave a wedding venue for some extra photography we are always careful not to interrupt the wedding day. With the two photographer
option we can work much quicker and get the photographs we need without keeping the bride and groom away from the wedding guests for too long. Here are some of the photos from the day… Dave
