Mr & Mrs Davies at Rose Dew Farm

Congratulations to Delyth Rogers and Michael Davies who got married on Saturday 16th September.

The Rhondda coupled shared their special day with their family and friends in the beautiful surroundings of Rose Dew Farm, Llantwit Major. This is a beautiful venue surrounded by lush green fields and with the beach a short 2 minute drive away, it is one of the best venues that South Wales has to offer.

The couple are old school friends of mine and they had met some 15 years previous to this wedding, and have a little charming son called Hudson. He looked dapper in his wedding clobber on the day.

I really can’t thank Mr & Mrs Davies enough for using myself to photograph their wedding. I wish them all the best for their future together.

Delyth & Michael

It was lovely to meet up with Delyth and Michael for their engagement shoot at the Rhigos Mountain in the Rhondda Valley. Having been a friend of both for so long i’m very excited for their upcoming wedding on September 16th 2017 at Rose Dew Farm in Llantwit Major.

 

Upon arriving up the Rhigos, in typical Welsh style, the weather changed instantly with fog, but in my opinion this really helped to make the images look slightly different and give them a nice mood to the background. Of course, we can’t expect nice weather in August on a mountain in the valleys in Wales can we??

 

Thank you both for choosing myself to capture your wedding day in a few weeks time, i really can’t wait!

On Saturday 12th of August 2017, Johanna & Darren celebrated their marriage at the picturesque venue Oxwich Bay Hotel situated in the Gower, Swansea.

It's one of my favourite venues in Wales due to its on beach location and superb gardens surrounding the hotel. Also, the staff at this venue is always helpful and it always seems they can't physically do enough for you.

Johanna was very relaxed upon my arrival, enjoying some bubbly with her bridesmaids, Lauren, Victoria and Georgie. It's always pleasing walking into the bridal party and seeing them all enjoy the build up to the big moment.

The ceremony was soon upon us, and what an emotional occasion this was but also filled with laughter and happy tears amongst guests.
With the bride and groom nervous of making the speeches correctly, their guests were highly entertained with Darren's humour all throughout the ceremony.

Finishing from the ceremony room, the bride and groom moved to the marquee on site for their speeches and reception. The speeches didn't disappoint!
There's always the saying "you had to be there" and this is definitely one of those.
Johanna's dad kicked off the occasion with a beautiful touching speech about his daughter and Darren. Up next was the father of the groom, who in his Northern Irish accent had people bursting in laughter. Very similar to Darren's speech.
For those that don't know Darren, he's a bit of a fun character and does an incredible impression of his wife. Upon completing his awesome speech and self made song that he sung to Johanna, he placed a blonde curly wig in his head and pretending to be Johanna for a speech.
The guests were roaring from start to finish!

Darren's best man, who is also his son, Kian, said some emotional words welcoming Johanna into the family and the acceptance of being an awesome step mum to Georgie and himself. It was a very moving speech.

I can't thank the happy couple enough on booking me to do their wedding photography.

Luckily, the Milky Way was prominent in the sky and I asked them both to join me on the beach at 10.30pm. It was a little bit cold but they both agreed and I'm so glad they did as the image is truly breathtaking. You can find it posted below.

All the best Mr and Mrs Wilson for your future together.

Saturday 29th July was a beautiful occasion for the newlyweds, Beverley and Daniel.
The couple got married at the beautiful Rhondda church, St Peters before moving onto the bwlch mountain for pictures.
Upon arriving early in the morning, I knew it was going to be a fun filled day. Beverley was very relaxed surrounded by her bridesmaids, although their healthy obsession with pringles was clear to see haha!
At the church, I met a very nervous Groom, looking very smart in his grey suit. You could see the emotion on his face waiting in anticipation to see his stunning bride.
I think everyone gets a bit emotional on their wedding day, it's surprising how much it just hits you when you prepare for your big day.

I really hope the bride and groom enjoyed their day, it was an honour to work for them throughout the day and photograph their special day!

I wish you both all the best!

On Saturday 22nd July 2017, Gareth and Anita married at the beautiful Countryman Inn near Pontyclun. This venue is a new one for myself which to get to you have to travel through some beautiful country lanes before reaching the destination.
It's a venue that doesn't disappoint! It has such beautiful scenery surrounding the area and also boasts some beautiful fishing lakes.

The Bride and Groom got married surrounded by their close friends and family at the venue. It was a lovely relaxing day for the happy couple who both looked stunning in their wedding attire.

I wish Gareth & Anita all the best of luck for their new marriage and hope they have a happy life together.

Taylor-Dee & Kris

Sunday 2nd July, 2017, saw Taylor-Dee and Kristian tie the knot at the beautiful Glen-Yr-Afon hotel in Usk. 

It was a pleasure to be  able to photograph this event as I have previously worked with Taylor, and it was nice to be able to be a big part of her special day. 

The connection between the bride & groom is always plain to see and some emotional words from Kris during his speech captured those feelings towards Taylor and their families. 

The venue had been decorated to Taylor’s perfection! She is very creative at this type of thing and it really made this wedding personal. 

Thank you so much both for using intotheheartphotography.com! 

I wish you both all the best for your future 

Bluebirds Forever

Saturday 1st of July, 2017, was an incredible day for two Cardiff City football fans, Mike and Bethan, who married at St Illtud Church in Llantwit Fadre before moving onto the Cardiff City Stadium for their reception. 

Bethan, who had her bridal party preparations at Shabby Chic in Talbot Green, is a good friend of mine from our time over the years following Wales in football home and away. It was a pleasure to photograph Mike and Bethan’s  wedding day.

The happy couple were allowed to utilise the stadium for images on the day which really allowed us to be creative. I’d really like to thank the staff at the stadium for all their help on the day. 

Mike & Bethan, I wish you a fantastic life together and many happy seasons supporting the bluebirds! 

Mr & Mrs Ely

Set in the beautiful town of Warwick is a beautiful and picturesque venue called Saxon Mill. This was the perfect location for Matthew and Natasha to have their wedding after getting engaged here some few years ago. 

On Saturday 24th June, 2017, I travelled early to meet up with the bride at a nearby hotel, The Globe. The spirit of the bridal party was a delight to be around as they had fun chatting about the upcoming day. 

It’s always a nice feeling when I walk into a room and see the bridal party just having fun. One of the best bits of doing wedding photography. 

Onto the Saxon Mill, upon arriving at the venue something special was about to unfold. The groom announced that this wasn’t going to be your typical wedding ceremony, and boy did they deliver on this! 

Upon entry of the bridesmaids and flower girls, disco music blasted through the ceremony room to get everyone on their feet to dance and celebrate as they, and the bride, walked down the aisle. Such a fantastic moment for the guests to enjoy. 

Another thing that surprised everyone was the fact that Natasha and Matt have spent the last 18 months learning a dance routine for their wedding dance. With help from a choreographer, the bride and groom smashed it!! 

Fantastic day all round and the guests had a ball! 

Congratulations to Natasha and Matt, Mr And Mrs Ely! I wish you both all the best for your future together.
