St David’s Cathedral & Crug Glas House Wedding – Katie & Mark

Katie and Mark were married on Saturday 9th July 2016 and I was lucky enough to chosen as their wedding photographer. I had an early start to make the journey to Britain’s smallest city of St Davids, in Pembrokshire on the most westerly point of Wales. My photographic coverage started with the bridal preparations, beofre I made my way to the wedding ceremony venue of St David’s Cathedral.

The site of St David’s Cathedral, started as a monastic community found by its namesake and patron saint of Wales during the 6th century. The cathedral we see today was constructed in 1181, though repairs and additions took place throughout the centuries, and practically rebuilt in the 1700’s by famous architect John Nash after is was all but destroyed during Oliver Cromwell’s reign as Lord Protector the century before. Today the cathedral is a major attraction in Pembrokeshire and even on a wet and windy day, you can expect manny tourists to share the experience of your wedding day, if you are lucky enough to get permission to marry there.

 

“What an amazing delivery to come back to after our honeymoon!
Thank you so much for everything you did on our day. We are more than pleased with the results and can’t stop looking at them! They are amazing and truly capture the day. “

 

After the formal marriage Katie and Mark were keen to make a small diversion ion the way to the reception venue, to Porthgain, a picturesque fishing harbour, where the couple braced the winds to have a few photographs taken on the harbour wall. Sanctuary was sought from the elements at Crug Glas House, a country hotel and restaurant that has converted a barn to accommodate wedding celebrations, and had been chosen to host todays drinks reception and formal wedding breakfast.
