This week, our blog post is about Rich and Katie’s wedding at the lovely Bron Eifion Country House Hotel in Criccieth, Gwynedd. Celynnen Photography, although wedding photography professionals and two time winners of best wedding photography in North Wales, also aim to help you in your wedding planning! We hope that by seeing these images and reading about the suppliers that Rich and Katie chose for their day, you will get some ideas and inspiration!
Katie started the day surrounded by friends, family and champagne as Katie had her hair and make-up done. The make-up artist was Sarah Griffiths Smith, the director at Beautique Porthmadog who offer a variety of beauty treatments such wedding make up, tanning, teeth whitening, manicures and massages. Katie’s hair was done by Sioned from Ceri a Morus, who currently have four salons in North Wales; Porthmadog, Pwllheli, Penrhyn Bay and Menai Bridge. The business is actually owned by a team of a brother and sister who have worked for forty years in this business.
The suits were from Debenhams formal suit hire. Debenhams pride themselves on their ability to supply multiple matching suits in a wide variety of sizes, making your day as stress free as possible. Debenhams also supply many other wedding necessities, including wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, shoes and jewellery.

The flowers were supplied by Blodau Eleri, a florist in Criccieth. It is a family run business which has been selling flowers for over 100 years for a variety of occasions!
Katie and Rich’s wedding venue, Bron Eifion, was built in 1883 and is a four star hotel. It is a fantastic venue for any occasion, especially a wedding. It has it all; beautiful surrounding gardens plus a sea view. The building can accommodate up to 150 guests for a wedding and if you’re planning on getting married in April to September, you can have your ceremony outside! They offer several packages to suit a variety of needs and wedding dates. They even decorated the venue for Katie and Rich’s wedding, and it certainly was beautiful.
The couple looked so happy together in these shots taken in the surrounding gardens at Bron Eifion.
In case you were wondering about the cake by the way, Katie’s mum made it!
Katie and Rich chose to hire a DJ from Artistes International Ltd who provide a variety of entertainment across the UK.
