Summer Wedding at Llanerch Vineyard – Kate & David

The running theme for most of my wedding photography clients, is that one if not both, do not really enjoy having their photographs taken. Seems a very ironic position for a photography business to be in. Though this was the very reason I helped to pioneer a more natural approach to wedding photography. Taken a more observational point of view rather than dictating the pace of the day. So apart from a few family groups which the couple requested, we spent literally a couple of minutes to take some portraits of just the happy couple. The rest of the days photographic coverage was without intrusion or instruction. I merely let the couple enjoy mingling with their friends and let the day run its course. This lack of control is not for the faint hearted, it takes patience and a lot of hard work to capture the atmosphere without interference. Kate and David got married on 3rd August 2019 at Llanerch Vineyard in South Wales. The bride got ready in the old cottage at the vineyard, whilst the groom was in one of the new rooms that LLanerach have recently built. The marriage ceremony was performed in Calon Lodge, which benefits from the picturesque view of the vineyard. Where later the drinks reception is enjoyed by the wedding guests. The main wedding breakfast is served in the venues purpose built Woodland marquee.


“Oh my goodness! I can’t thank you enough for such beautiful photos. You are certainly extremely talented.”

“Thank you for capturing such special moments of our nearest and dearest, I will treasure them forever. Thank you so much again for really giving us the most wonderful memories of our special day.”
