I first met Stacey & Chris at their home and instantly could not wait to work with them! They are sweet funny and so laid back - just my kind of people!
The day started with a freezing cold drive to Llangamarch Wells (featuring a sprinkling of snow). I stopped on the way to grab a shot of their sign and rushed into the warmth of the hotel.
I met Stacey along with her gorgeous and hilarious bridesmaids getting glam and sipping prosecco (juice for the little one - at least as far as I could tell!).
Energy was high and everyone was so excited.
Getting ready is always one of my favorite times in the day. I love seeing all the pretty bits for the first time that the bride has put so much thought and effort into choosing. The dress, the shoes, and the jewellery - I love it all!
I was also able to take part in a little surprise for the Groom. Stacey gave me his gift to give to him before the ceremony - which was set to the ceremony time! (Awwww!)
As the boys were getting ready in the same venue - I was so happy to be able to capture the boys getting dapper as well as the girls!
Then the moment had arrived! Guests ushered into the ceremony and the groom ready and waiting.
It was beautiful to see how in love these two were and to see them smile all the way through.
The rest of the day followed like a dream. Guests were treated to drinks and hors d'oeuvres and I was able to wander around the hotel to capture them enjoying themselves and congratulating the newly weds.
After the formal groups were out of the way, we went for a walk around the gorgeous lake, Stacey changed into her wellies and were joined by some swans for their private pictures.
Next came the speeches full of funny stories, embaressing stories, and sad stories. The evening followed with a visit from a magician and then a night of partying with the bridesmaids band!
A huge congrats to Stacey & Chris - thank you for letting me tell your story xxx
