North Wales Wedding Photographer at Holt Lodge

North Wales Wedding Photographer at Holt Lodge

I knew from the very first moment I met Karl and Toni in a local pub that as their North Wales Wedding Photographer at Holt Lodge I was going to have fun. And I wasn’t wrong!

Bit of a rocky start to their pre-wedding shoot at the stunning Abbey. The weather was not on our side and as we made our way up the hill we saw wildfires were raging across the heather. I couldn’t really see anything past my car’s bonnet! And so we had to call it a day when the fire service turned us around and sent us back down the hill.

Luckily that wasn’t a bad omen for their wedding day.

Toni & Karl’s Wedding Day in North Wales at Holt Lodge

I spent the first hour or so of their wedding day with all the boys (human & furry) at Karl & Toni’s house in North Wales. So much fun!!!

I then headed over to Holt Lodge to hang out with the girls. Bridal prep was a pretty chilled affair. Somehow Toni managed to bag the 2018 award for bride taking the longest to get into the dress, ha!

Karl & Toni do love their CrossFit! And so it’s probably no surprise that Toni also bagged the 2018 award for most defined back. Absolutely loved watching her get dressed! I also heard there’s some footage of Toni bench pressing some of the girls on the dancefloor at night, impressive!

Really enjoyed their wedding ceremony! Their lovely registrar turned them around and made sure all of their friends and family were able to see them make their vows and exchange rings which was nice x

I’ve heard quite a few wedding speeches over the past few years but Karl’s was probably my favourite so far!

Love being a Wild Pheasant Hotel Wedding Photographer! I first met the lovely Shane & Sammy over a quick drink on a beautiful sunny day at the Cornmill in Llangollen. Sam told me that they had been let down by another Wild Pheasant Hotel Wedding Photographer. Sadly, they lost their deposit. Unfortunately, that was not the first time I'd heard of a couple being let down. Luckily for Shane & Sammy, I still had availability on their chosen date. The rest, as the saying goes, is history! We next met on a beautiful Friday evening in July for their pre-wedding mini adventure around Cwm Idwal in Snowdonia. You can see more of that by click ...

A romantic wedding at Tyn Dwr Hall I absolutely love documenting romantic weddings at Tyn Dwr Hall in Llangollen. It is one of the area's most beautiful wedding venues. Besides, a romantic wedding at Tyn Dwr Hall is always a pleasure and I'm always happy to document a wedding here. Emma & Dan first met when Dan was looking for a lodger. Fast forward a couple (or 10.....) years and 3 gorgeous girls later and here we all are watching them exchange their vows at St Collens Church in Llangollen. We'd had a right laugh at their pre-wedding shoot! In fact, it was so much fun getting to know the couple and their 3 little free-spirited gir ...
