I was recently contacted by the Temple of Peace to see if I would consider becoming their go to photographer. I set up a meeting with Emily the events manager and as soon as I stepped foot inside, I knew this was a venue I wanted to work with!
Emily is incredibly motivated and enthusiastic. Just read this quote from their website:
"When you hold your event at the Temple of Peace, all the profits go to the charity that runs the venue, the Welsh Centre for International Affairs (the WCIA). The WCIA's vision is that everone in Wales contributes to creating a fairer and more peaceful world. We do this by inspiring learning and action on global issues through delivering high quality global education, promoting peace and human rights and supporting international development from Wales.
Our core values, of protecting human rights, promoting peace and sustainability and supporting everyone in Wales to play their role as global citizens, are reflected in how we run the venue. We carefully source our suppliers, looking for those who take their responsibilities to the environment seriously and who make a positive contirbution to the communities around them. We work with caterers who use fairly traded or locally sourced produce. "
The main hall is stunning with an art deco feel. High ceilings with black marble pillars with long windows lining the walls. Not to mention the pillars outside of the building.
You can catch me at their first wedding fayre on 29th January 2017 to see for yourself.
We decided to set up a styled shoot to get some more images out there. I had already worked with E&W before and knew their dresses would be perfect! Joined by Kelsey Tiffin on makeup - we had a great team.
