Let’s Hear It For The Boys – The Poker Game

This image was of the boys playing poker was taken at the Bear Hotel in Cowbridge and I always like to include a photo in a wedding that shows the couples personality or include a hobby. In this wedding the groom was a big poker player and so wanted to create a moody image with his mates. So at the end of the evening we took them into the courtyard and set up a game. I let them carry on playing whilst trying to capture the atmosphere and banter between them.

Cwtch of the Week: A Newgale Cwtch

9 small


I shot Jonathan and Abigail’s engagement shoot at Easter when they were down in Pembrokeshire for the week. We decided to shoot on Newgale beach as its their personal favourite and a beautiful beach. It was an overcast yet dry day so they got their coats and wellies on and we all went for a stroll! After deciding to have a paddle in the sea, the waves came in and carried their wellies off halfway down the beach which made for some amusing photographs.

They live in Southampton but are getting married on the 20th of August 2016 at the Emmanuel Christian Centre in Haverfordwest and having a gorgeous Tipi reception with Pims and cake at Southwood Farm, Wood Hill, Newgale. Abigail is originally from Haverfordwest. I love this image not only because they’re a fantastic couple but you can really feel the emotion and love in the image. I think black and white photos always tells a story.

Thank you so much for sharing Angharad.  And you’re so right. So much emotion showed in this image, Abigails contently in love soft smile, is like something out of a movie!  Just gorgeous! x
