Manorbier Castle Wedding – Laura & Mark

Manorbier Castle provided the perfect setting for Laura and Mark’s wedding on 14th May 2016 in Pembrokeshire, West Wales. The marriage ceremony took place at St James’ Church, from where you could see the castle across the village hill. After the ceremony, the guests were able to walk through the valley back up to the wedding reception held in the castle. The skies were slightly overcast during the day, but by after the speeches, we were treated to bright sunshine, and the guests were able to enjoy its warm glow before the evening celebrations began. And what celebrations they were, very rarely have I seen the dance floor fill so quickly after the first dance!

My blog post seem to be getting longer and longer with more photographs each time. I take this as a good sign, not only does it provide an excellent demonstration of my photographic coverage at each wedding, with more images it allows the viewer to get a thorough feel of the wedding day, to be able to share the complete story through a series of empathic photographs.

Manorbier Castle was originally built on land granted to Odo de Barri, a Norman knight, at the end of the 11th century. In 1146 Gerald of Wales, the scholar known as Geraldus Cambrensis was born at the castle, who wrote of his birthplace, “In all the broad lands of Wales, Manorbier is the most pleasant place by far.” This was the first time photographing a wedding at Manorbier and after my experience I cant say I would disagree with Geraldus Cambrensis.
