I’ve filmed quite a few Welsh language weddings recently, and it was lovely to see some of the same crowd at Manon and Chris’s big day at Carden Park. The wedding was a really emotional one, with plenty of joyful tears throughout especially as Manon made her way down the aisle.
I started the morning with Manon and the girls at her parent’s home in Llangwm near to Snowdonia in North Wales.
Llangwm is a tiny little village, but it has three chapels, all with the same post code! So with a good map for directions I headed over to the chapel ahead of the girls to capture guests arriving before the ceremony. The little church seemed much bigger on the inside, but it was still a very full house by the time Manon arrived.
After the marriage ceremony, we travelled to Carden Park in Cheshire for the reception. The Carden Park Hotel and Spa is a large luxurious golf resort with fantastic views over to North Wales.
Manon and Chris and their guests enjoyed the sunshine in the gardens at the front of the hotel:
It was nice to working with wedding photographer Stacy Haf again, highly recommended.
Manon and Chris opted for a Same Day Edit film (see above) which was shown on our big screen in the evening. In addition they will also receive a full length film including the full ceremony, speeches and first dance.
