Following on from last weeks blog post featuring Rebecca and Nick’s pre-wedding shoot on the beach in South Wales, as promised I would like to share a few photographs from their wedding. The occasion was held at St Isan’s Church in Llanishen followed by a reception at Cardiff Museum. After meeting up with the bride in the morning for a few preparation details shots, I met the groom at the marriage ceremony location, where the guests were dashing through the rain to the shelter of the church. The heavens really did open for the arrival of the bride and her maids, but there are plenty who say it is good luck to experience precipitation on your wedding day, “a wet knot never gets untied” is a particular favourite I often overhear from onlookers.
It was quite late in the day by the time we reached the museum and the winter daylight had all but gone, though the museum is one of my favourite places to photograph a drinks reception, it is not often wedding guests get to mingle with a glass of champagne amongst millions pounds worth of art. Once the lobby is cleared of visitors and the table are dressed, the guest were invited to take there seats in the grand marble hall.
