Cwtch of the Week: The Cwtch that started it all

So, I’m feeling nostalgic today. I’ve been looking back on all of our wonderful ‘Cwtch of the Week’ posts and I’ve found our very first. Originally posted in February 2013, I thought I would share with you where it all began!

Over to Maria, the very wonderful photographer of this gorgeous image and found of Cwtch the Bride……

verb Cwtch kuh・ch

Welsh word for an affectionate hug. There’s no literal English translation, but its nearest equivlent is “safe place”. So if you’re cwtching you’re giving them a “safe place”.

We love a cwtch (we made it our name so we must do! :) ) – so much so that we thought we’d instigate a fun little feature called Cwtch of the Week, to showcase some of our very favourite images of our favourite Welsh past time.

For those of you wondering “isn’t it just a hug?” – ask anyone who lives in Wales and they’ll tell you – a cwtch is a warmer, friendlier, snuggly version of a hug. Tidy!

Our first CotW couple is Rebecca and Tom, with this gorgeous shot from their engagement shoot last year. How lovely? :)

And what a lovely one to begin ouru lovely Monday tradition. Remember, if you have a photo you think fits the bill please feel free to tweet or email us – we’d love to see it! :)
