Llyn Gwynant Barn Wedding: Phil & Helen

Llyn Gwynant Barn Wedding: Phil & Helen

DIY Barn Wedding Lynn Gwynant

A group of mountaineering friends gathered today for a wonderful DIY barn wedding in Llyn Gwynant in Snowdonia
We love all different types of weddings and this one certainly was and so glad we responded to the Bark lead to  get this  and it truly was a  DIY wedding
Phil and Helen brewed their own peculiar Ale and fermented their own (delicious) elder-flower champagne  and apple wine.
They grew their own flowers for the decorations, dried the petals for the confetti and all the bouquets which Phil made – what a talented man!
There were trestle tables groaning under the weight of so much food – all vegetarian and prepared by friends and family – totally delicious
So lovely to see friends just chipping in with setting up and helping this to be the day just as Phil and Helen wished for.

No bridal preps we met Helen as she arrived by car to the venue – her bridesmaid so attentive and forever arranging out her gorgeously embroidered dress to it best.
A ceremony in the North Wales barn by Llyn Gwynant  in scenic Snowdonia  National Park where many of their friends were camping out in the adjacent campsite.
Plenty of time to explore the surrounding hills and lakeside for beautiful portraits before heading back for the feast laid out
Guest had a great time mingling by the barn having drinks and snacks and the kids had fun with the bubbles .. think Helen enjoyed that too
Oh we even had pics on their mountain porta ledge where they intended to have their first night as a married couple befitting the theme of their mountain wedding.
Helen’s something blue was blue mountain twine around her ankle – love details like this
Indeed Phil had proposed to Helen in Yosemite and her ring had been hand crafted and engraved especially.

Starters on the table as Phil got proceedings underway by opening the big bottle of homegrown  champagne inviting friends to open theirs at the same time such a lovely touch.
Homemade jars of jam adorned the tables as DIY favours for their friends
Other speeches followed in between courses  and the day just rolled into the evening festivities of dancing and merrymaking
A real fun memorable day for all and  great teamwork to put on such a wonderful event.
Thank you Phl and Helen  for inviting us to capture and share your amazing  DIY Barn wedding we so enjoyed it and wish you much happiness to come.

Quay Hotel Wedding Photography : Zoe and David

Virtually this time last year we were in Deganwy  covering Quay Hotel Wedding Photography for Mike and Vicky and here we are back again for the Quay Hotel wedding in North Wales of Zoe and David
Such a scenically located hotel on the marina of Deganwy with fabulous staff and food.  Always a pleasure to be here.

Zoe and her bridesmaids readied themselves at her mum’s  home and pampered by the lovely Cathryn Kerwin_Rawlinson as their MUA.
They then made their way to the nearby family church were their children had been christened in their white bridal car.
Zoe was ..as tradition allows…a bit late but all well for the service , which was packed  with their friends and family.
A beautiful chalkboard welcomed bride and  the guests in.

We opted for the family formals to be at the church so guests could make the journey  to The Quay Hotel Deganwy for the wedding reception and party.
Always happy to work with Rob Whibbley of Action Wedding Videos to record the day

The Quay has a a large adjoining room so no need for guests to vacate room during turnaround time.
The balcony makes for some scenic shots over the estuary – although bright it was rather a blustery day!
Great evening atmosphere with a photo booth and Zoe’s brother singing during the evening party.
It was great to capture all the moments and we hope you enjoy this little summary of the day.fitzgibbon fitzgibbon1063_fitzgibbon_quay_deganwy

Zoe did warn us that her son would not stand still for long.  We managed to get several candid shots of him as well as this beautiful family group on the balcony just before speeches.
This picture means so much to them and makes us really happy knowing that its a precious moment for them .
Having us for you Quay Wedding photography all day means more flexibility for informal groups like this.

Our last wedding of 2015,  and what a way to end a fantatstic year with a  Christmas wedding for Leanne and Scott, not quite the last day of the year but almost!
Scott and Leanne we had a fabulous day with you and overjoyed you had such a memorable day that we were priviledged to capture for your memories.

Leanne and Scott childhood sweethearts, the only ones for each other, how special and romantic is that!
Been together 10 years and now an elegant black and white festive weddding for them at the beautiful Plas Hafod country House hotel sealed a perfect day.
Plas Hafod is a perfect winter wedding venue with it light airy conservatory room to make the most of winter light and also has ample room inside for group photos if needed.
This was the day of Storm Frank supposedly but it hardly bothered us, a little rain interemittently, but a breath ofair for a few group shots and portraits was most refreshing.
Fantastic choice guys, hope you enjoy this little blog post of your highlights and wish you much continued happiness.

Elegance and Sunshine at The Quay Hotel Deganwy Wedding

We at Pixsmiths Creative Photography had been looking forward to this day ever since the Valentine’s Engagement Shoot with our couple.  So happy a sunny September wedding day arrived for Vicky and Mike at the wonderfully situated Quay Hotel Deganwy. Located right on the waterfront and with the sun shining had  French Riviera feel to the day!
Preps at the hotel and a church ceremony across the level crossing and up the hill to the quaint church of All Saints.
An elegant reception ensued back down at the hotel, guests milling outside for drinks before the wedding breakfast, everyone having a fabulous day. Vicky looked stunning in her crystal encrusted wedding dress her cream, green and white bouquet just suited this elegant wedding perfectly.

Wonderful suppliers to work with on the day:

Plas Hafod Wedding : Kim and Felix

Plas Hafod Wedding : Kim and Felix

 

Plas Hafod Wedding of Kim and Felix

Pixsmiths had a fabulous day with Kiim and Felix at their wonderful wedding.  a day full of joy amongst family and friends, everything just as they planned and more.

A ceremony at Christchurch, Moreton and then whisked off to the beautiful Plas Hafod in North Wales, courtesy of Speedwell Motors.
Our first time for a  Plass Hafod wedding and hope it won’t be the last. The reception room has lots of natural light so great if you need to shoot indoor and also ideal for wintere weddings. The co-ordinator is a great and makes things really interesting – oh and  the meringues here are so scrumptios and huge!

The gardens outdoors provide ample opportunities for portraits and the bridal swuite is very charming – Kim really enjoyed showing us the room.
Lots of fab details and personal touches, one of the bridesmaids had make the cake, amazing job there and loved the figures of them, with Kim in her skates – she’s a keen figure skater so no wonder she is so fit.
The room was delightfully dressed by Eva Adore and the table names were the gifts of the spirit, an innovative way to share their faith.

Really enjoyed the best men’s speeches, you could see they had a real connection with Kim and Felix , true friends and supporters of them and they gave them funny gifts and a lovely text frame  of things they do in their new life togethere which  I know will grace their home. Sweet cart, fun frame prop shots and dancing all made the evening party go with a swing.  Many congratulations to Kim and Felix , you can see from these images what the day meant to them and we wish them much happiness and health for the future.

Hope you enjoy a small sample of the images taken during the day.
