Saturday, July 2nd 2016, Loren Thorne & Mark Davies married at the Maes Manor, Blackwood. Situated up a long steep hill off the main road, this beautiful Manor House has gorgeous views heading out over the valley and luckily the sun was shining throughout the day which allowed us to utilise this spectacular view.
I arrived at the venue for 7.30am to be greeted by emotional but excited bridesmaid, who were enjoying some early morning Prosecco to continue the fantastic mood that was ever present.
Loren had been nervous on the build up to her special moment but was in high spirits having her best friends around her. They certainly made me feel welcome and the conversations were like no other…i physically hurt from laughing all morning.
Once the groom arrived everyone in the room upstairs knew that time was running away with the day, it all got real and the laughter from emotions got more excitable.
The ceremony got underway with joy in the room, all their friends and family were in high spirits and really added to this special day.
The speeches from Marks best man and his dad were fun and gave Mark some blushes and plenty of moments with his head in hands, but he took it well. Loren’s dad, really rounded off how proud he was of her and how happy he was that Mark has been added to the family.
The evening guests had popular wedding band Devious perform for them and totally rocked up this wedding. Mark and Loren had met at a gig of theirs a few years back so seemed the best thing to do is have Devious send them into their married life with a bang!
I can’t thank Mark & Loren and the bridesmaids enough for making my day a memorable day too, and I just wish them every bit of success and a happy marriage for the rest of their lives.
