We headed to South Wales for Laura and Brians wedding engagement photoshoot. I visit the Brecons often, I love the area for hiking a bike riding. And Gower has some beautiful locations to spend an evening.
How is it possible for two people to be so effortlessly cool and relaxed while walking barefoot through the mountains and along a rugged cliff edge! We went from the mountains to the sea, and shot until it was nearly dark. The perfect evening sky blessed us with some serious lighting….
I’m a little bit in love with Wales, it’s so close to me but a world away from where I live. I think there’s tonnes of potential for epic wedding photos. Click here for some inspiration for south Wales wedding venues.
If your thinking of planning your wedding in South Wales, or your Engagement, there are a few things to consider. Firstly, the Welsh weather, it can be, let’s say unpredictable! Saying that though when the conditions are good, it is absolutly glorious. Time of year. This goes with the weather one, Winter will be cold & Summer could well be cold, but it could be hot, you just never know until a few days before. I think you have to be willing to embrace whatever mother nature can throw at you, it’s all part of the fun. From my point of view as a photographer aslong as your game I am game for anything. To me warm and sunny or cold and rainy, your pictures should reflect the reality and atmosphere of the location.
Finding your wedding venue in South Wales is going to be a huge consideration. My above point about the Welsh weather means you have to think about logistics carefully. I mean yes it will be incredible to have that outdoors wedding, but have a backup plan incase. Same goes if you plan to have that ceremony on top of the Brecon Beacons. If you can pull it off though it will be epic, as will the pictures. There’s always the option of having your wedding in a cave!
