Back in April I photographed a styled welsh wedding shoot on the outskirts of Llangollen in the rolling hills of North Wales.
Over the years I have become increasingly aware that there isn’t an abundance of wedding inspiration available to brides planning to tie the knot in Wales. So my clever friend Sarah and I decided to style a shoot which we hoped would go some way to filling the void, including as many details as we could think of which were specifically Welsh. We wanted daffodils to feature in a wild bouquet which would fit with the beautiful landscape we wanted to showcase in the photographs. With this in mind we tried to create a very natural, almost celtic styled shoot which would lend itself to the dramatic and ancient surroundings.
There were several details included which showcase the best of welsh traditions such as the ‘love spoon’, a beautiful marriage blessing in welsh by Dic Jones, locally sourced slate jewellery, a scattering of adorable spring lambs and of course a stack of delicious welsh cakes!
It was wonderful to see this shoot featured on the beautifully romantic wedding blog Magnolia Rouge last week!
