What do you we do if it rains on our wedding day? – I get asked this questions quite a lot by newly engaged couples. In the future I will just point them to this wedding blog. I do not think Ceirios and Edwards hardly noticed it was raining on their wedding day. They were too busy having fun! One advantage I do notice at wet weddings is that the drinks reception quickly turns into a big party, as everyone squishes in around the bar. A bit like the best time at parties, where everyone squeezes into the kitchen!
In the morning I started the day photographing the bride with her collection of bridesmaids, made up of school and university friends and present and future sister-in-laws. The marriage ceremony took place at Capel Cana in the Carmarthenshire village of Bancyfelin. As ever in West Wales, members of the local village surround the church gates to get a glimpse of the bride, no amount of rain can keep these well wishers away. Following the nuptials, a quick dash to the cars saved getting drenched and we made our way to The Corran Resort & Spa, a boutique luxury hotel near the town of Laugharne. Here congratulations were exchanged, drinks were served and a Luke Gravett, close up magician provided some mind blowing and fork bending entertainment. Following the wedding breakfast and speeches, the rain paused just enough for us to take some photographs of the bride and groom outside, before retreated backing into the shelter of the hotel.
