This has been an amazing year of weddings, and this one has been one of my favourites. Amy and Jordan had their wedding at Margam Country Park which is an absolutely stunning wedding venue in South Wales, just next to Port Talbot. I’ve been here before, so I know the place well, and I could not wait to get started on taking photos.
5 bridesmaids, 2 small children, 1 brother of the bride and both parents all getting ready, along with dogs, it goes down as one of the busiest bridal preparations that I have been to in a long time, and it was fun from the get go. All went smoothly, and so much laughing it got the day off to an amazing start. I’d have to say the funniest moment was trying to get photos of the 2 small babies on the hay bale (although, the bridesmaids trying to open a bottle of bubbly was a close second…..see below….I have to say, a massive round of applause for the inovative approach of the bridesmaid in trying to stop the bubbles coming out of the bottle!). The moment the babies were set down on the hay, the waterworks and screaming started – and with gusto. It was 100% clear that they did not want to be on the hay, and they were not shy about it. However, it made the photo.
Everything in the morning went by so quickly, and Amy looked stunning in her dress. I don’t think dad was quite prepared for just what to expect.
The ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening party were all taking place at the Orangery in Margam Country Park, so we had the perfect backdrop for a beautiful wedding. You have so many choices, it’s hard to know which part to use first. The orangery, the ruins, the castle, the gardens – you are spoilt for choice, which is why it’s one of the best wedding venues in South Wales. I’d recommend it every time.
It was such a pleasure to be with Amy and Jordan on their special day, weddings like this are why I love my work so much. They were the prefect couple to photograph, and were happy to go anywhere to get all the amazing shots we could get. It’s hard to choose the best ones from the day. I don’t know how they will choose their favourites for any kind of album, or pictures on the wall.
I’ve picked out a handful of my favourites from the day below, and I’ll most likely add some more as I want to put them all up for people to see.
A huge thank you to Amy, Jordan, the bridesmaids, the groomsmen, parents and all the friends and family who made this wedding such a wonderful day, and one I’ll never forget. I loved it so much to spend the day with you all, and thank you for inviting me to be a part of it. See you again soon.
