On Saturday 26th September 2015, I got asked to cover the Grooms morning before he headed off to Llechwen Hall, Pontypridd.
Lee Scott, local goalkeeping hero for Ynyshir Albions, was preparing to marry his sweetheart, Bethan Morgan, who was getting herself ready for the big day at the venue.
It started out with some very nervous groomsmen, even though they were convinced they were OK, I’d like to think the pictures tell a different story.
Bethan prepared a lovely book of special memories for Lee, in which the groom had to hold back his tears, and she also picked out a beautiful watch, the message attached was very much to the point but emotional which read “Here’s to make sure you get here on time”.
It was Lee’s best man who seemed the more nervous as the morning was going on however, pacing up and down as you’d expect a best man to do given the fact he has to perform his speech to perfection! Lee even had to dress him, surely this should be the other way around??
I think the real winner here was the dad who was cool, calm and sensible
These nerves soon left the lads once they were located to the nearby Gelli Park for some pictures outdoors. Plenty comments were made of how much they looked like a boy band
And of course, you can’t leave a park without having a play surely?
It was the next part though that really entertained me, these words actually came out of the grooms mouth….”The Camera Loves Me”, how true he was with this BOLD statement, nailed the shots first time
Getting the boys to walk in a line proved entertaining also, asking them to all look different ways, they all turned the same way except Scott Jones, the amount that he didn’t care is clear to see! Good move Scott, actually makes the picture look staged
And after my comment of “you all looked the same way” laughter broke out, this is probably my favourite picture of the year, the reason for this is it shows the boys character and how close they all are. Well done lads!
I’d like to wish Lee & Bethan, Mr & Mrs Scott a happy wedding day and a bright future together
