First up…..press play for a real feel about this most gorgeous venue, then please do read on for more on the fab Tyn Dwr Hall.


I have been privileged to be a recommended Tyn Dwr Hall wedding photographer from the very beginning of their story, capturing my first wedding at Tyn Dwr Hall right at the start of their own magical journey back in 2017. This was to be the start of my love affair with this gorgeous venue, set in the heart of North Wales, it is truly one of the best run, best looking and magical venues around. I truly am so lucky to live, more or less, right on their doorstep.


I first found my way there when I captured Matt and Korina’s special day back in August 2017

Korina found me via my listing on “Fearless” where I have been an active member for several years now, picking up a couple of their coveted awards along the way. Since then I have made several wonderful returns to Tyn Dwr Hall and now find my way to writing this blog post. A post through the eyes of a photographer, so read on for an honest account of a wedding day at the magical venue that is Tyn Dwr Hall.

A Tyn Dwr Hall Wedding Photographer

As you drive up to this venue you cannot help but be struck by the sheer scale and beauty that encompasses it. Llangollen truly is a magical place in its own right and as a Tyn Dwr Hall wedding photographer this venue affords so much scope for those wishing to have a more relaxed and informal take on their photography and also some areas for the more adventurous too (as seen above!!). The entrance to the hall is both welcoming and warm, giving way to the wonderful staircase and stained glass window that adorns it. A magnificent site to behold and one that inspires as you begin to look around the room…but then you spy the doors, doors that lead you through a maze of rooms. Here the drinks reception will be held in the more inclement days, as well as providing ample chill space for the wedding guests. There is also a door that leads you through to a corridor and the second half of this fabulous venue, a bar, the ceremony room and the most amazing glass extension to a venue, the place truly is sprawling and hits all the right notes. In this glass room many a reception has been held…offering views of the gorgeous welsh countryside that cannot be overstated.

Magical indeed.



After arriving I always make my way upstairs to the bridal room where the girls will be getting ready. This is two fold, I want my couples to always have a stress and worry free day, and my arrival is one less thing to worry about, so making my bride aware of my arrival is absolutely vital. She can then relax and one less thing to worry about is always a good thing. I also want to start capturing the story, and usually this starts with the bridal party, the drive to the hall already having been captured as I arrived. The adjoining bedrooms are just as perfect, their decor and finish is clean and fresh, modern and timeless in equal measure, offering up images without distraction from huge LCD TV panels…garish wallpaper or “loud” carpets.

I also like to split my time between the two families, the close proximity of the grooms and brides rooms allow me to discreetly manage this, seamlessly capturing the story as it unfolds.

 I will never interfere or encourage deviations from the natural order of the day, but when I see a dress hanging in one of the bedrooms, my heart rises. Here affords the chance of a clutter free end to the bridal preparations and a place for that all important “reveal”.

Everything in Tyn Dwr Hall allows images to breath, to remove distraction and to allow photography that is both timeless, and creative.

A photographers dream indeed.

As you go through your day at Tyn Dwr Hall there will come that time to get some more creative images, this makes up around 5% of my work, the remaining 95% percent is mostly documentary imagery,

capturing a wedding day in it’s wonderful, natural, state.

Artistic and timeless, the hallmark of PbArtWorks.

After the bride and her party are ready to leave, they make their way to “that” amazing staircase. Usually I try here to capture both aspects, usually positioning myself near the top, then as the bride makes her way down I will ask her to pause so I can seamlessly nip past and get ready for her coming down the second flight of stairs. I sometimes have a second shooter with me too…so that makes this even more effortless. Perhaps that’s something you may wish to consider?

It’s even perfect for a few “quiet” images later in the day too, especially if the sun is shining through like it was here.

Overall I can honestly say my time capturing weddings over at Tyn Dwr Hall has been some of the most enjoyable. Made more so by the attentive and reassuring staff, if a venue makes a wedding, then the staff that ensure your day goes by without a hitch are worthy of praise too. There are too many to single out, and believe me, I have worked alongside nearly all of them there, they are just wonderful people and a credit to the owners of Tyn Dwr Hall. Never is anything to much trouble for them…they are always there, always smiling, professional and courteous. Just the topping on top of a very big, and beautiful, wedding venue cake.
