The Gwenfrewi Project Wedding Photographer
A quick search on Google and you discover that The Gwenfrewi Project in Gwytherin is in fact 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 gets me super excited. In fact, I love The Gwenfrewi Project so much it’s currently occupying the top spot of My favourite wedding venues in North Wales (update: the Gwenfrewi Project is unfortunately not accepting any enquiries in 2021).

Thanks to Storm Hannah the weather on this beautiful Gwenfrewi wedding day was not quite as bright and sunny as we’d hoped for. But rain on your wedding day is a sign of a good luck for a long and happy marriage and this magnificent Welsh Wedding Venue is stunning inside.
The Gwenfrewi project in Gwytherin is right opposite The Lion Inn pub, a great place for a few relaxed pre-wedding drinks and canapes for the groom and wedding guests while they wait for the bride to arrive. With an open fire roaring right in the middle of this cosy Welsh pub and the general buzz of excitement, time flies by! And it’s only a short walk across the road for the ceremony.

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.
