Amy and Tanveer held their Dyffryn Gardens wedding on the 30th May 2015 with the marriage ceremony outdoors in the amazing Pompeian garden. However, right up to the day before, the weather forecast for this area of South Wales promised rain, so the decision was made to construct the gazebo, in the end the showers never came and in their place was lovely sunshine. In fact it was the hottest day so far this year and the gazebo was used to produce much sought after shade. Outdoor wedding ceremonies are growing in popularity in the UK despite the weather risks, it does provide a natural, informal atmosphere to the occasion, though the legal bit still has to take place under a licensed and permanent structure.
“Just to say a huge thank you – we are absolutely thrilled with the photos. You captured the day perfectly, and to such a high standard. We’re going to enjoy looking through them again this evening, and can’t wait to share them with family and friends.”
The Dyffryn estate can be dated back to the 7th century, though the present house was built in the late 1800’s by a wealthy coal merchant. The gardens are an exceptional example of Edwardian design by the the eminent landscape designer Thomas Mawson. The National Trust has recently taken over the estates lease with the aim to restoring the house and continuing the maintenance of the gardens, so it shall be in good hands for the foreseeable future.
