Rachael & Sam

I kicked off the new season with this beaut of a wedding couple. It's been a very long awaited day and the last of my postponed covid weddings. Rachael and Sam have travelled all the way from New Zealand to get married in Pembrokeshire, where Sam's originally from and where most of his family reside. Both the Bride and Groom got ready at Crug Glas with Flowers by Annabel delivering the beautiful bouqeuts and buttonholes. For the ceremony they chose Bishops Palace, a ruin in the grounds of the Cathedral in the very quaint city of St David's, with the surprise of Rachaels mum being the celebrant. Rachaels daughters both confidently took part in ceremony and had big parts to play and it was lovely to see the family finally officially have the day they've long awaited and without a dry eye. After the ceremony, Rachael, Sam & I headed to St non's Chapel a mere 5 mins drive to the coast. Sam & Rachael were both so comfortable in front of the camera that I placed them in position and then left them to it. The weather was well and truly on our side although we did have an usual chill to the air. We made our way back to Crug Glas for the reception where it had been beautifully decorated with lovely vintage reddy pink vibes and blossom trees. The food and speeches went down a treat with many people taking part. Once all the official things like cake cutting were complete we headed to the field in the grounds of Crug Glas to get some more couple shots before we lost the light. Rachael and Sam requested dramatic shots and I think I delivered!! I couldn't have been happier with the dark cloud coverage we had and the evening sun bursting through at the perfect time. The Bride and Groom then hit the dance floor for a quick solo dance before the guests joined in which was the end of my part. Racheal and Sam, thank you for picking me to capture your memories it was an absolute pleasure.
