Wild Pheasant Wedding Photographer
Love being a Wild Pheasant 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 Wedding Photographer and had sadly lost their deposit. Unfortunately that was not the first time I’d heard of a couple being let down. But luckily for Shane & Sammy I still had availability on their chosen date and so, as the saying goes, the rest is history!
We next met up again on a beautiful Friday evening in July for their pre-wedding mini adventure around Cwm Idwal in beautiful Snowdonia (to see more of that click here). I love adventurous couples that trust me without knowing what to expect and after our pre-wedding shoot I knew I’d be in for a lot of fun as their Wild Pheasant Wedding Photographer!
The Wedding Day
Their fun filled relaxed wedding day started with the groom & bride getting ready at the Wild Pheasant Hotel in Llangollen. Bridal prep is always one of my favourite times of any wedding day, even more so with a bunch of super nice & funny Welsh girls! It was nice to see them all having a hoot together and I must say Sammy looked absolutely stunning in her Britney Platinum Dress!
The ceremony was lovely. Having waited a long long time to finally get his beautiful bride down the aisle, Shane might have been a tad excited as he shouted out YESSS before the registrar had even finished her sentence 😉 🙂 🙂
Following their ceremony and drinks reception we headed off to the neighbouring field for some relaxed couple portraits. I might have been pushing my luck a little asking the bride to cross a barb wire fence but Sammy took it all in her stride and with the help of Shane and a couple of other strong men she was across it in no time at all. We spent the afternoon listening to some really funny speeches, had some fun with the group shots and then Sammy & Shane just mingled with their nice friends & families until it was time for their first dance.
It was an absolute pleasure to be their Wild Pheasant Wedding Photographer and probably the first (and perhaps only!) time that things ran according to plan. Something tells me Sammy being a manager in the catering industry has something to do with that!
Here’s to a lifetime of love & happiness Mr. & Mrs. Jones – couldn’t have asked for a more laid-back & fun couple! Thanks for picking me as your Wild Pheasant Wedding Photographer xoxo
