This King Arthur Hotel wedding was a very special one for me, I was so happy when Rhian and Paul chose me to be her wedding photographer in Swansea.
Rhian is a wedding co-ordinator at The King Arthur Hotel, she has been in charge of many weddings I have shot in the past, so it was a huge honour to be asked to photograph her big day. The morning was very entertaining with Lucy Summerfield doing hair, Farhana Ali doing make up and Steve Ratcliffe on video, combined with an excited bride and bubbly bridesmaids (Hannah from The King Arthur could giggle for Wales) I don’t think i’ve laughed so much at a wedding before. It was a really close team effort as we have all worked with Rhian many times before. The ceremony was at The King Arthur along with the reception. Rhian’s father was very nervous about his speech and decided to do it outside straight after the ceremony, which was a lovely idea and a very emotional moment.
Rhian had asked if we could take pictures in a lane next to her parents farm, after seeing a picture from a wedding I shot a few years ago. We also stopped at Broadpool which is on the road heading back to the venue.
Rhian enlisted the help of Enchanted Decor to dress the room with a vintage feel and a serious amount of fairy lights. The evening’s entertainment kicked of with Luke Jugglestruck a fantastic magician I’ve worked with many times before. Music was provided by Raspberry Jam, an awesome band and they got the dance floor full and bouncing all night long.
