Last autumn I was approached by John and Nigel to photograph their wedding at Maesmawr Hall Hotel this April.
Not only was this a huge honour, as they own Maesmawr Hall and had their pick of a very talented list of photographers based in this area but the wedding sounded AMAZING and I couldn’t wait to be a part of it.
Maesmawr was buzzing all morning, a marquee was erected in the grounds along with a carousel and it looked epic!
The marquee was decorated in classy black and white with stunning flowers by Bizzy Lizzy’s and a 5 tier wedding cake by Suzi Spongebakes.
My old faithful Lee Kendall, Maesmawr’s Wedding Co-Ordinator (award winning, don’t you know) was keeping me calm and occupied with little jobs to help out.
Then it happened; the most beautiful, intimate ceremony with gorgeous singing by Nicky Moran. I wouldn’t normally describe a wedding with 150 guests intimate, but somehow it was.
The weather stayed dry and the sun shone through just as we set up the whole group shot.
After the meal there can sometimes be a bit of a lull waiting for the speeches to start, but today I felt that something was going to happen… I wasn’t wrong! Brahms & Lizst kept the guests entertained (me included) and what a show it was! If you ever get a chance to see these guys perform take it!!
After the speeches the carousel lit up and guests stumbled on and off until the fireworks began to explode…
…The evening party had begun!
I was almost persuaded to stay, tempted by the bubbles and Andy of Evolution Roadshows’ tunes. But sensibly, I retired home with wonderful memories of a fantastic day full of love, fun and happiness and a camera filled with beautiful moments that will last forever.
Thank you so much, John and Nigel for choosing Rocksalt Photography to capture your day.
Over and out.
