Firstly, a huge Happy New Year to you all! Hope 2012 is a great year for you, full of fun, laughter, love and blessings. Its a pretty exciting one for us... our year of parenthood! eek! (we promise to blog some photos of our new bundle in due course. Wibbly Warrell is currently still cooking!)
We have still so many weddings and eshoots to blog from 2011 that we have decided to not to do a "look back at 2011", although, we would love to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all our couples, friends, colleagues, Facebook friends, Twitter friends and family for your great support (keep on popping back to our blog as we will be sharing lots of amazing couples with you in the next few weeks/months) We have loved every moment we have had the chance to capture. Special days and precious people. We feel truly blessed that we can do this as a job. We cant wait for the buzz of 2012 to kick in. We have some truly lovely weddings booked, with some amazing people, in awesome situations! We look forward with so much anticipation! Yay for all you lovely 2012 couples! Bring on the love!
Here today, we wanted to share with you the wedding of some special pals of ours. Ben and Anna (often referred to as Benanna!) We have had the pleasure of knowing this pair for a good while. Anna, originally from Pembrokeshire has been mates with O for years and we had the honour of being mates in Oxford too.
What was so ace about Ben and Anna's big day was that we got to capture photos and play with some of our bestest ever friends! A substantial troop of their/our friends from Oxford came to Pembrokeshire to share in their special day (yay!)
Ben and Anna got married in Pembroke and then had their reception in Lamphey. When living and photographing weddings in Pembrokeshire, you really do have the pick of the best, most beautiful beaches. We had our beach choice set and loads of ideas planned, but the fabulous British summer weather nearly put a stop to that. After getting in and out of the car, wrapping ourselves in blankets, hanging on tight to umbrellas and contemplating how this was going to work, the sun came out and we had the most super 20 mins on Freshwater East. Thanks Benanna for hanging on in there and having the patience to bear with the weather. We truly loved our beach session. Precious times for the four of us!
We then returned to their village hall wedding reception where we had the pleasure of becoming guests as well as photographers. With a "tea" theme, teapots full of flowers, tea pots table plan and home grown herbs (courtesy of Ben - super talented landscape gardener!) the celebrations flowed and many giggles too.
Ben and Anna asked for a photo-booth to be incorporated into their wedding reception. Taking photos of friends and crazy people with props is always something worth doing. A proper giggle.
Thank you so much Ben and Anna for your friendship, for asking us to capture your special day and for the fun times we have had and will have. We think you're pretty "sweet" and so glad you got married! You're a good pair! :P x x o&c
