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!

Llandudno Pier
Llandudno Pier Wedding Photography I decided within 0.5 seconds after meeting Magda and the girls at The St. George's Hotel in Llandudno that I was probably going to end up with a massive girl crush on Magda! From the moment I read about their Llandudno Pier Wedding and Welsh elopement plans I knew we were in for a fun day. And, of course, I'm never wrong! The girls were getting ready at The Roof Top and I could have happily stayed in this room for a very long time. Preferably with a glass (or two) of vino in my hand and lots of time on my hand to enjoy the views! As it stands I walked in pretty much only just before bridal prep was over ...

The couple wanted a relaxed wedding with their nearest and dearest and decided on a hotel by the canal for their family-oriented wedding day in Cheshire.

She decorated the cake table with heirloom family wedding pictures which I absolutely loved! Relaxed Wedding Day in Cheshire Oliver their son was the proud ring bearer and their cute l ...
