When we received an email from Rachel and Gary enquiring about wedding photography I (Charis) was pretty excited. The reason being is they are to be married near New Quay (the proper lovely one!) a beautiful seaside harbour in Ceredigion. The reason this is so exciting for me is it reminds me of many fabulous childhood visits and where many of my family come from. Once they agreed that we were the photographers for them (yippee!) we planned an engagement shoot.
Rachels family have a farm in Ceredigion so we started off our shoot on the farm, wellies on and pleasantly squelching through mud and fields of sheep.
After a quick cuppa, we then headed on down to Aberaeron. Again a personal favourite for me, as this is where my family used to do big family get-togethers. It is one of the most beautiful seaside villages. Totally in keeping with stunning welsh villages it has the gorgeous painted houses, all in different colours. Aberaeron also has one of the coolest ice-cream, shops around. The Hive sells the yummiest honey ice-cream. Well worth a visit- highly recommended! We of course had to take a trip there and finished off a truly lovely day with ice-cream and a stroll along the harbour wall.
We are very much looking forward Gary and Rachels wedding in August, starting off in a welsh chapel and then heading on to a field for their reception, overlooking New Quay. As we say in these parts "bendigedig!" (wonderful!) x x o&c
