On Friday, I had the pleasure of documenting the wedding day of Oliver and Kate. They were originally going to be getting married in April. Due to lockdown however, everything was postponed. They were able to secure a booking at The Galia registry office in Llandrindod Wells on Friday at 2pm. I wasn’t allowed to attend as ceremony was just for the bride, groom and two witnesses (parents). They went alone and I met them back at home.
When they returned, Kate changed into her beautiful wedding gown. Hubby Oli was patiently waiting downstairs to see his beautiful new bride. Oli’s aunt had made the fabulous teardrop bouquet & button-holes. A bible-based wedding service had been arranged via Zoom. That meant friends and family who would have been at the wedding could see and talk to them. Oli’s step-dad Kevin gave a lovely wedding talk with everyone listening in from their own homes.
With the wedding talk completed, we headed down to Caer Beris Manor in Builth Wells. As we had the remnants of Storm Freya, it was sadly rather wet and windy so we stayed indoors! Caer Beris is a beautiful venue and we had fun finding spots inside to take photos. Kate, Oli and her parents were joined by Oli’s mum and stepdad and his father Will. Once I’d finished photographing this lovely couple, I left them in peace to enjoy their meal. Hopefully once restrictions are finally lifted, they may have a celebration in the future. Kate may even get to wear her beautiful Romantica dress again!
As Kate’s little bridesmaids were unable to be bridesmaids on her wedding day, I separately met up with 3 out of the 4 of them. Two are sisters so met with Ru and Olivia on the way back from Caer Beris. Little Matilda also lives locally so I did an indoor session with her. Sadly the other little one lives in Bristol so wasn’t up for the weekend (but was watching on Zoom in her dress!)
Wishing Oli and Kate every happiness as they start their new life together. Hope you enjoy a selection of their photos from their Big Day below:
