Beautiful flowers in vivid red and pinks amongst the garden backdrop. Candelabra and chandeliers against a backdrop of ivy and brick walls and our Bride, the beautiful Shona, waiting for her groom at a table set for two. Gill loves to look for interesting colours and backgrounds using foliage to tell the season and give interesting light. At Tros yr Afon there are lots of secret places to hide the bride and groom away, so there came the idea…a romantic, opulent dinner..hidden away in the walled garden.
Who out there is looking for some wedding inspiration…. When I saw this styled shoot I fell in love. With the beautiful backdrop of Tros yr Afon and some amazing suppliers how could we not share this with you. They wanted to show an extravagant wedding, but toned down by nature. Contemporary, romantic dining. Natural but not necessarily rustic.
In the spring, Gill Jones (of Gill Jones photography), a fantastically talented and lovely photographer who often works at Tros Yr Afon, approached us about doing a styled shoot at Tros yr Afon, ‘Could we possibly use Tros yr Afon as a playground for an enthusiastic group of wedding creative’s?’ The idea was that it would not only be an opportunity to push boundaries, experiment, have fun and to add something exciting to our portfolio’s but to bring together a group of local ‘wedding suppliers’ and show what we could do when we all worked together. The answer was of course a big ‘yes’.
