A Sunset on Southerndown Cwtch

Darren Thomas Cwtch

Wow, what can I say other than what a superb day to have shot this pre wedding shoot with Susie and Rob.

In August I will be heading to Clearwell Castle where I will have the pleasure of shooting their wedding.

So, having meet Susie and Rob last year to discuss their wedding, I was over the moon that they decided to book me for their big day and recently when Susie got in touch to arrange a pre wedding shoot at Southerndown beach I had all fingers and toes crossed that the sun would come out to play. Well, it worked. The weather man or woman, I’m not sure which :) said it would be cloudy and overcast all day. I should have known, as we all do, they are never right and I am so glad this was true.  The brightest and clearest blue skies that I have seen this year, not a cloud in the sky and the location Dunraven Bay, renowned by landscape photographers and many others as an amazing sunset location.

Susie told me that she and Rob were not lovers of the camera so I had to make sure that by the end of the shoot they were. Rob, well Rob clearly knew how to work that camera and even impressed Susie, well done Rob, obviously been practicing :)  It was a great day, plenty of laughs and what really made the day for me was when they both said how much of a great time they both had. Thank you both, looking forward to the wedding now.

A Forestry Cwtch

This photo was captured during a pre-wedding photoshoot in the woodland at Dunraven Bay. The couple picked this location as it was a place they had both spent a lot of time at growing up, and held a lot of fond memories for them.
After various posed shots, I asked Alan to give Beck a kiss, he then decided to go one step further, grabbed her around the waist, picked her up and gave her a huge cwtch and a kiss! Who could miss a moment like that?! click.
I love this photo because although obviously photographed, it looks like the couple are in their own little woodland bubble, not a care in the world – just the two of them, truly happy.

Thank you so much for sharing Kate xx

Snuggly Cwtch By Victoria Tyrrell Photography

Is it Monday already!!!

With all this stormy weather you can see why we chose this photograph by Victoria Tyrrell Photography. I love how Lizzie is sneaking a snuggly cwtch from her husband to be Tom to help her to warm up down on a chilly day at Dunraven Bay in South Wales. This cute couple are getting married on Easter weekend at Pencoed House. Lets hope that the weather plays ball and is a little warmer than it is here.
