Its 2015 ! and its going to be a busy year !
Firstly a very happy new year to you and I hope you are reading this recovered from your Christmas celebrations and finding January an easy going and gentle start to 2015…
With a busy year ahead of me I was keen to use this month to take some visits to some of the venues booked by my brides and grooms for whom I will be shooting for in the not so distance future.
Todays adventure was with Rhian and Kerry to the beautiful location of Bridgend and the stunning venue Coed Y Mwstwr hotel .
Wedding couple discuss their day with the staff at Coed-y-Mwstwr Hotel
Being such a large estate it is equipped with a very fitting long and picturesque drive that cuts through the fields and trees, past the adjoining golf course and then finally into the large expanse of open land that is home to this beautiful hotel..
Its quite a sight to behold viewing the building for the first time !
With details of the day discussed, I had plenty of time to walk round the interior of the estate and the surrounding grounds to discuss key areas that we would use to create beautiful images of their day.
Of course the only problem (as ever), is choosing places to work with Rhian, Kerry and their guests within the grounds for their photos. Personally I could take a full day to explore and utilise all the possibilities available! Most of what we viewed was outside but there is just so much potential inside as well. Decisions, decisions..
But wedding photography should compliment, document and move with the day, taking up as little time as possible, not dictating the agenda..
Thats why venue meetings are are so important, allowing me to create and visualise the photo plan with the bride and groom taking up a small amount of time to save and create much more.
If you have booked with me for 2015 or are still undecided on your wedding photographer, lets go see your venue as soon as we can ! Be it Church, Chapel, registry or grand hotel I am always keen to meet with my clients potential or confirmed to see where they will be wed and where I will create their beautiful wedding gallery.
