Last week, I was delighted to attend the wedding of Abbie and Rhys at Canada Lodge & Lake in Cardiff. I found Abbie along with her mum and sisters having her hair done in one of the furthest Lodges. She looked fabulous with little corkscrew curls. It was soon time for mum to help her into her gown and lace up her corset-style dress. Abbie’s Grand-dad was giving her away so appeared at the Lodge in readiness for his role. Little did Abbie know, but her lovely parents had organised a surprise vintage car to take her to the ceremony. Andrew from Prices Wedding cars was outside waiting to chauffer her to Pontypridd Registry Office.
After a lovely ceremony and a few photos, we all headed back to the Canada Lodge and Lake for the reception. It’s such a lovely venue with beautiful views around the lake. There were some huge BBC trailers on site as apparently they were filming a Dr Who episode. Whilst busy taking photos, we all heard a little voice shout ‘congratulations’! We turned around to see a smiling Bradley Walsh (off The Chase) leaning over the railings grinning! He was so lovely and kindly agreed to pose for a few photos with the newlyweds! Not many couples can say they met (& had pics) with a TV celebrity on their wedding day! 🙂
Abbie & Rhys enjoyed their reception at Rhodri’s by the Lake. This is a smaller but picturesque log cabin venue away from the main hotel. The views were absolutely stunning and fabulous for photos.
Congratulations you guys on your marriage. I wish you every happiness and look forward to hearing about your new arrival! I hope you’ll enjoy seeing a selection of your photos below:
