A beautiful wedding at The Gwenfrewi Project
The Gwenfrewi Project Wedding Photographer
When Rebecca first emailed me she casually mentioned they were having a beautiful wedding at The Gwenfrewi Project in Gwytherin. I must admit had absolutely no idea where or what it was. A quick search on Google and I discovered it’s a magnificent decommissioned church in Conwy now owned by the lovely Alison. It’s a beautiful historic venue surrounded by stunning scenery that dates back to the Bronze Age. This former church holds unique civil ceremonies and is a place where you can create a truly individual wedding. Surrounded by ancient yews thousands of years old the site oozes atmosphere and charm. The venue welcomes all, civil weddings and partnerships and is also dog friendly. It’s that combination that got me super excited!! I actually love The Gwenfrewi Project so much it’s currently occupying a top spot of My favourite wedding venues in North Wales!

Thanks to Storm Hannah the weather on Geraint & Rebecca’s wedding day was not quite as bright and sunny as I’d hoped for… But rain on your wedding day actually means good luck and this magnificent Welsh Wedding Venue is stunning inside so no need to worry about the wet. If you’re currently wedding planning don’t worry about rain on your wedding day by the way.

I joined Geraint and the wedding guests for a couple of relaxed pre-wedding drinks and canapes at The Lion Inn opposite The Gwenfrewi Project in Gwytherin. With an open fire roaring right in the middle of this cosy North Wales pub and the general buzz of excitement from the wedding guests, time was flying by! Soon the guests started to walk across the road and into the church and I jumped on the coach that had arrived with Rebecca and the bridesmaids.

It was such a beautiful and emotional ceremony! There might even have been a tear (or two) from the groom who looked totally blown away by his stunning bride. To be fair, Becci looked incredible in her bespoke top and skirt!!
After a couple of quick shots outside the church dodging the rain underneath the gorgeous floral arch, we headed back inside for their champagne & cake reception. Absolutely loved watching everyone mingle in the afternoon. Nice to meet Nick the super talented magician, too!
A coach then took family & friends back to their home for the weekend, the Old Rectory Country House in Glan Conwy with breathtaking views across the Conwy Estuary!
