Sarah & Daniel held their beautiful wedding ceremony and reception at the Bear Hotel in Cowbridge Cardiff. Although it poured down all day we were able to create some amazing wedding photography in the rain and with the fairy lights. With another full day's location photography session still to come there are going to be even more great wedding photographs to follow.
Dan looked very sharp and handsome in his morning suite. The guys preparations were great fun and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves as did all the groomsmen at Dan's expenses. Sarah's bridal preparations where "unique"! We had to move from the hotel's apartments to the Bridal suite in the main hotel because the rains was so bad that even this short walk would ruined Sarah's amazing wedding dress. Always in control, Sarah gave the order and pretty much everyone jumped and although it was a tiny bit cramped there was never really a cross word, just lots for laughing and a few tears of joy and amazingly Sarah emerged looking breathtaking and serene.
Couples invariably worry about rain on their wedding and what will happen to the wedding photographs. Often there is good reason to be worried, but Elise and I love the rain, and we've learnt that the best way to handle rain is to using it in the couples wedding photography as we have for Sarah & Dan. Also instead of seeing the rain as a problem, realise its a great opportunity to do something different for the couple. For Sarah and Dan we created more evening and intimate romantic wedding photographs knowing that we still had a whole day of wedding photography in front of us when we can guarantee that the weather will be good. The result is pure romanance and genuine emotion.
Sarah & Dan were the perfect couple, open to new ideas for photography and always ready to tryout new things, the upshot is way more wedding photographs than you could imagine on such a wet and windy day. Let's hope the honeymoon is dryer and warmer. Can't wait for the Cherish Day session its going to be amazing!
Thanks to for letting us photograph their wedding at The Bear Hotel. There are over 640 photographs. However we thought you might like to see a few highlights from their wonderful wedding day.
