The weekend just gone was a Bank Holiday filled with typical long weekend activity. Mowing the lawn, washing the car, doing the laundry. Amongst the mundane, the big event was a wedding between two lovely ladies, one of who we’ve known for 15 years or more. The setting? An 18th Century country house in West Wales. The weather? Gloriously hot and sunny.
The chance to whip out my camera did not pass me by – if there is one thing I love, it’s being part of someone’s big day without the pressure of being the main photographer. Those little moments; a joke, a grin, a whisper – the candid seconds are a joy to capture and are what make occasions like this so much fun. Of course, it is also a privilege to be invited to someone’s special day and I find that weddings remind people what love is all about. You can’t watch two people exchange vows without reflecting on your own relationship and you’ll often see couples put their arms around each other, stand a little closer, gaze at each other a little longer. I don’t doubt that it can also be painful for some people, but on the whole they are usually happy days for the majority.
So here are a few photos from the day.
