South Wales Wedding at Fairyhill & Llangennith Beach – Jessica & Shalin

Here are a few photographs from the second wedding I have ever photographed at Fairyhill. Today’s bride and groom were Jessica and Shalin, who married on 25th August 2019. In our pre wedding communication, the happy couple requested to have a few portraits of the two of them on the beach during some point in the day. I often hear this request, as quite a few of wedding venues in South Wales are blessed with a location near a picturesque coastline, be it rugged cliffs or sandy beach. However, more often than not, the bride and groom decide against such a venture on the day itself. This normally is because the schedule has over ran, or the prospect of climbing dunes in a big white dress and high heels loses some of its attraction, once a few glasses of champagne are consumed. Nevertheless, as a seasoned wedding photographer, one thing you must learn is how to go with the flow. However todays schedule was well adhered to and Jessica and Shalin were ever enthusiast about the excursion. So once the speeches were completed and whilst the wedding venue staff were preparing the room for the evening festivities, we made our way to the coast. The nearest and most accessible coastline is Llangennith Beach, over looking the vast panorama that is offered by Rhossili Bay. The evening sun was not quite low enough for the golden hour, the schedule for the first dance prohibited such timing, though the these was element of a soft warm glow to the portraits. However great care had to be taken with the timing and composition to ensure no sun seeking tourist was accidentally captured in the background. At the beginning of the day, the bridal preparations had taken place at Cerrig Glan, one of the accommodation options offered by Fairyhill. The ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening dancing took place in the modern function room at Fairyhill. In the intermediate occasions, guests took advantage of the summer weather on the venues patio and grounds.
