Ben and Julie got married at St Mary’s Golf Club in November of this year which is very unpredictable for the weather. It was raining in the morning before I left and I was hoping that it would just pass over, commenting on Facebook that I was doing a sun dance! It seemed to work! As I drove down the M4 towards Pencoed from Cardiff the sky was opening up and the sun came out to play! It was my second time to St Mary’s Golf Club this year and it’s a lovely intimate venue, very friendly and interesting stonework.

Ben and Julie wanted coverage from the wedding ceremony through to the first dance and as I arrived early I was able to catch a few of the moments between Julie and the girls and the guests along with some pics of the venue after it had been dressed. 

When we went for the pre-wedding shoot we went to Ogmore Castle and Ogmore beach. It’s a great way to get a feeling for how your clients interact and walk together and I realised during this session that they both walked very fast together, so I was well prepared when Julie came down the aisle almost running! The both looked so happy during the exchange of vows and Julie was getting emotional too.  There was loads of love between these guys and it so shows.. Check out the photographs in the gallery of the quick photoshoot we had after the ceremony and during the reception they hired a Nintendo Wi console and had Mario cart racing with inflatable seats#! – Amazing! Got some great expressions from the guys playing and watching that!

We also had a few sparklers so tried some creative sparkler shots later on in the evening and a night confetti shot. I love getting creative with things as well as providing a documentary response to the wedding so if you do have any specific ideas please feel free to share them . .

Would love to hear from you,  leave your comments below..
