Last weekend I had the privilege of documenting the afternoon wedding of Jasmine & Ben at Treadam Barn, Abergavenny. The ceremony was being held at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Griffithstown, Pontypool. People were already mingling and I bounced up to the groom (whom I’d only met once) to ask how he was feeling. The ‘groom’ said “I’m not Ben”. I felt confused and said “of course you are”. He replied “no, I’m his twin brother”! Naughty Ben omitted to advise me he had an identical twin! Feeling somewhat foolish, I sloped off to find the groom inside! 🙂 All the guys were wearing a dried flower buttonhole arrangement made by Ben’s mum, Emily.
Right on time, a vintage VW camper van drew up to the doors containing Jasmine and her bridesmaids. The girls all looked gorgeous in their varying shades of sage green. They were holding stunning bouquets created by Ella Bella Flowers of New Inn – the flowers had THE most amazing scent! Jasmine and Ben’s ceremony was conducted by friend and minister Jeff, who was also able to oversee the signing of the register. An hour later, we were back out into the sunshine and heading up to the very rustic Treadam Barn.
We hadn’t actually been at the venue for too long when the heavens opened! We were dodging the showers in between everyone enjoying a delicious hog roast by Spitting Pig. Ben gave a lovely (and very emotional) speech. He had written a beautiful poem dedicated to his new bride! The rain had almost stopped after the meal, so we headed back out for some more photos before I left.
I know Jasmine and Ben were going away for a few days after the wedding. Congratulations you guys. Wishing you both a very long and happy marriage. Hope you enjoy viewing some of your pics below 🙂
