December is around the corner and I can't wait! I always tend to have really lovely weddings surrounded by friends. Was true past two years year where the last wedding we did was filled with clients we worked with. This year will be great too as I'll be shooting the wedding of an ex-student of mine which was a bit of a dream and the wedding of some friends from church as well as some lovely clients getting married at Nunsmere Hall. To get us in the spirit, here is a December 2016 wedding when we finished the year with Gaelle and Aled's wedding at Tyn Dwr Hall.
I met Gaelle and Aled as they were friends with Celynnen Photography couple, now friends Emma and Tim who got married in Llandudno a few years back. It was also nice that Gaelle was from France as French is my first language and I don't get to speak it as much as I'd like. It was lovely to see Emma, Tim and some of my other clients which were also there!
The venue they chose was Tyn Dwr Hall and let me just put this out there right now: If you're looking for a country house venue anywhere near Wrexham, Llangollen, etc.. It's THE nicest venue I've worked in. They've seriously raised the bar, not only in making the place look gorgeous, but in hospitality and event management and I hope I get to work there again soon!
Here is how the wedding panned out, in Gaelle's words:
"Our wedding and reception was held at the stunning Tyn Dwr Hall, in Llangollen. In the middle of the North Wales hills, the Grade II listed Hall was built in 1866. With its surrounding woodlands, its bell tower, its beautiful garden and wonderful interior, Tyn Dwr seemed like the most magical place for us to get married.
After 6 months of preparation, I felt really calm on the day itself, even if the weeks leading up to it were a bit stressful. While I believe Aled was nervous, I knew that the wedding was “us”, made of the simple things that we love, and that I was marrying the love of my life.
The day was made more special as quite a lot of our family and friends, especially from afar, were able to join us and we were touched by all the help we received from them, prior to and on the day.
We enjoyed every second of it: a perfect day, relaxed, full of laughter, food, music and love.
