Enchanting summer wedding which had magical forests, sea views and mountain peaks for impressive backdrops. And of course – the wonderful people who made the day special!

Outdoor Wedding North Wales

Forest wedding

Yes, this one was a forest wedding! The most amazing forest of Min-y-Don had truly fairytale-like oaks. This is the magical place where Amy grew up and where her family still runs a very popular Activity Centre. We drove back here after the ceremony in Tywyn for her and Mark’s wedding portraits. Such a beautiful and unique place. There was no way Amy would not include it into her wedding day!!

Tipi wedding

Yes, it was a tipi wedding, because the main reception was a top of hill valley. The Welsh mountain ridges framed the farmers field, which was complete smothered in buttercups. And right in the middle stood the peaks of the tipi. The guests loved all the outdoor games. Especially the flying pigs – have  a look for those in pictures below!

Outdoor wedding

This was most definitely an outdoor wedding. Just as well it was planed for the warmest and sunniest spring in the UK in the past decade!! Never mind that the day started with a bit of fog over the Welsh coast. Quite a bit of fog, actually… and a tiny bit of a drizzle. But by elevenses the sky has cleared and the afternoon was definitely impossible without a good coating of suncream!

Beach wedding

Ok, we didn’t get right to the beach. But we came close to it. The family home overlooks the estuary of Afon Mawddach – just a magical unspoilt part of Wales. Apparently once used for gold mining, but now covered in greenery…and sheep.

Alternative wedding

Now, if I am honest, I am not too sure what is an alternative wedding… But it was the first time that I’ve photographed a groom with a Mohawk, flesh plugs, some fancy piercing and a handsome set of tattoos. The choice of table names gave a glimpse into the kind of music the couple loved. I had to Google one of the band names – Alterbridge. ” Heavy, yet melodic… music has been listed under several genres including hard rock, heavy metal, alternative metal, progressive metal and post-grunge”. I listened to a bit of Alterbridge when I was editing the wedding and I loved it. Who knew I would be into progressive metal?!

Together with some hard core music, the melodic chords of piano literally played a very important part in  Any and Mark’s wedding. Amy’s sister played gorgeous melodies by Yiruma for the bride’s entrance into the church. The wedding ceremony itself was lifted to a new level by the music band complete with base guitar and two super talented singers.

What else? SO much more! There was a pretty camper val Lola as well as a handsome cocktails camper van. There was a meat feast from Outside caterers and a 4-ways chocolate brownies for a wedding cake. The cake topper was made out of lego. A church hall covered in beautiful greenery, a flower crown with lavender.  The super talented florist woven local ferns and green sprigs into the bridal bouquet.  The bride and groom both wore Converse shoes…  And there were flying pigs. Honestly!

Absolutely wonderful wedding. Thanks for inviting me to share the day with you guys. Enjoy the pictures!
