We always knew that this would be a very special wedding day. Tim and Ceri are two very wonderful people and had chosen such a stunning venue. We were so excited and honoured to have the chance to capture their day. We had been on a recee to Dyffryn Gardens and all our fingers were crossed for good weather. Tim and Ceri have a very strong Christian faith and although they didn't get married in a church building their wedding service was jam-packed full of their love for each other and their faith in Jesus. It was such a joyful celebration, full of happiness and it was impossible to not get caught up in the fun of the day.
Tim and Ceri are big VW fans, so they had a very cool camper van as their vehicle of choice. It collected Ceri from her parents house where she was getting ready and drove her to Dyffryn Gardens where the rest of celebrations took place. After all of the ceremony we had the chance to take them off for their own photos and we were spoilt for choice! So much to see and so many hidden nooks and crannies. It really was a photographers dream! The gardens sport different styled gardens, from Pompei gardens, courtyards and folly's. The house itself is truly stunning, but is purely used for aesthetic purposes at present as it is unsuitable for use inside. That didn't bother us though, it is so visually appealing it featured in many of our photos!
Like many people these days, a wedding cake wasn't a first choice for Tim and Ceri, so they opted for something very different, a very large Millies Cookie. They had their names and date of wedding iced on top. It was then shared amongst the guests as a cake would, but it really was a yummy treat and a very good twist on a theme.
With bubbles, boules, skittles and a band in the evening, Tim and Ceris wedding ended as it began, on a real high. It was such fun and we even had the chance to join in with dancing and celebrating too.
Thanks for sharing your day with us and congratulations to you both at the start of your new life together as Mr and Mrs! x o&c
Oh, one last thing... the stationary for the day was designed by the very talented Lottie Blake. Fitting in with the themed colour blue and shabby-chic flowers. It added real flair to the reception décor and was truly stunning. this girl comes highly recommended! :D
