As soon as I met Bethan and Ian I could see that their wedding was going to be all about sharing it with family and friends. I also picked up quite soon their passion for rugby so it was no surprise on the day that the wedding was rugby themed, from red bridesmaid dresses and stunning red roses in the bouquet representing Bethan's passion for welsh rugby and table names showing various clubs. The whole wedding reflected them as individuals and as a couple perfectly and they are so meant to be together.
I met them at the most beautiful church called St Dochdwys, which was Bethan's family church. I was made so welcome by the father who was actually retired but made a special appearance to marry the daughter of his close friends. Many priests can be difficult to work with and mostly seem to dislike having photographers present but he was truly amazing and was an absolute pleasure to work with. This personal touch was beautiful and I know it meant the world to both Bethan and Ian, and even made me shed a few tears in parts.
The reception was at the lovely Vale of Glamorgan hotel and the staff looked after the guests and me very well. The highlight for me was seeing Bethan and Ian's parents engage with the Photo Booth by In House Entertainment. They were so much fun. I actually felt like a guest because the atmosphere was so warm and intimate. The Vale's resident DJ got everyone doing the YMCA on the dance floor and after that it was non stop action all night.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Coupe, I thoroughly enjoyed your wedding and thank you for choosing me to be your photographer. Here are some of my favourites.
