A Beautiful  & Relaxed North Wales Wedding

Hattie + Sam

Well it’s back to the summer of ’17 for this coming together of two of the worlds most beautiful people. This stunning…amazing, joy filled wedding set in the heart of North Wales.  Relaxed and informal never ever looked so good. Keep it real they said….no posing…no awkward cheesy horrible clichéd wedding photographs. Just authentic, natural story telling please!

Ok. No problem. Don’t you just hate those “stale, old school, smile….click”….kind of pictures?  So too do I. So when I get to work with couples like Sam and Hattie it really is like all my dreams have come true….beautiful, fun, relaxed and so chilled. Perfect!

Hattie and Sam are just so lovely, they also live in the perfect world of beautiful rolling landscapes, stunning country lanes and they also get to work in the great outdoors too. So their wedding had to really say something about them, their families, and that great outdoors.  Happily it did.

The beautiful soft gorgeous flowers that were used throughout the wedding were so country garden, and mostly homegrown too. Harriet’s bouquet, and all the wedding flowers, were made to be deceptively simple, so much so that they were stunning.

Never mind Hattie, who looks just amazing, check out those flowers, they are just so lush….fragrant and so delicate too. Hats off to Mrs Florist for being so amazing at what she does. 

On to the main course….the wedding photographs. Please do look through them, let me know what you guys think in the comments section below, I am truly interested in hearing peoples thoughts, and also…if there are any aspiring photographers out there, have a little look….tell me what you guys think. Also don’t be shy….ask away if you have any questions. I will be doing a blog on how I work….how I anticipate my next shot and how to look for those beautiful moments, those shapes and compositions.

So please, do enjoy the following images, I really am so proud of them and what I do. I always try my very best for all my couples, and striking THAT balance between capturing a wedding, telling the story and sitting back to allow things to happen naturally.

It’s tough, real tough!

Hope you like.

As promised….and thanks for getting all the way to the bottom…here is a little more info.

It is worth mentioning too that as you scrolled down the images you would have seen a letter, that letter was from Sam’s big brother. He is a serving soldier and was sadly unable to make Sam and Hattie’s wedding. Instead he sent a letter, that was read out by one of the guests, while his partner, the lady crying with the phone…. had Chris on facetime.
