Here is a few photographs from the wedding of Abby and Allan, who were married at Nanteos in Mid Wales on Saturday 15th July 2017. Nanteos Mansion is a grade one listed Georgian Mansion, and bit of a jewel in the crown of the Mid Wales county of Ceredigion. The estate that once include much of th eland that is Aberystwyth dates back to the 13th century. The mansion itself was bulit in the 1700’s by the weathly Powell family untilt the last relative passed away in the 1950’s. Since then it has passed through several hands and even was boarded up for a while. The present owners spents years of meticulous and painstaking renovations, to bring the building back to its former glory. Nanteos Mansion has once more opened it’s doors reviving the long tradition of welcoming guests to enjoy what is a quintessential Georgian Mansion that just happens to be a luxury hotel!
“Massive thanks to you for Saturday. We really did have the best day of our lives.”
The Nightingale, which serves as honeymoon suite during wedding celebrations, is probably one of my favourite locations to photograph the bridal preparations. Not only does it benefit from elegant decorations but the tall Georgian windows provides perfect light for photography. The marriage cermony took place next door in the Music Room, one of the most lavish rooms at Nanteos, with its sumptous Rococo style design. Once the happy couple walked down the asile as man and wife for the first time, a saber arch was formed outside the main entrance whilst other guests eagerly waited to throw confetti. The remainder of the day went as swimmingly, the weather beahved during the drinsk reception before everyone was called into the dining room for the wedding breakfast. Following the speeches the evening sun made a welcome appearance, bathing the front field in glorious sunshine. Braving the inquistive horseflies for a few minutes, we managed to get a few portraits of the bride and groom in the aestheitcally pleasing light before the evening celebrations were kicked off with the traditional first dance.
“Thank you so much for the Wedding Pictures. We love them.”
