I really do not think Leah and Oli stop laughing throughout the whole of their wedding day at Oldwalls in Gower. Having fun must be contagious as the whole congregation seemed to be enjoying the day just as much. My photographic coverage began on the day of 28th October 2016 with the bridal preparations at Leah’s parent’s home in Swansea, South Wales. The marriage ceremony took place at St James’ Church in the Uplands area of Swansea, before everyone was invited to the reception celebrations at Oldwalls, situated in the Gower Peninsula, which was declared the UK’s first designated area of outstanding natural beauty in 1956. Leah and Oli, had a lot in common with the majority of my clients in that they preferred not to turn their wedding day into a photography shoot, so apart from a handful of family photographs that they requested and a couple of portraits of the bride and groom, my brief was to capture the day as it unfolded naturally. To capture the essence of the atmosphere and tell the story of the day, there is no short cut to do this, no latest photography fad to implement, just timely presence and honest photography, that is hopefully emotive to how if felt to attend the day when your two friends got married. This blog post shows a sample of the photographs that I captured for Leah and Oli on their wedding day.
