We were asked to capture Lee and Lyndsey’s wedding at the fantastic King Arthur Hotel, Reynolston, Gower. We have always loved this venue not just for weddings but for a bite to eat or a coffee. Its location is great for different wedding photographic backdrops including the King Arthurs grounds.
The day started for Darren at the cottages attached to the wedding venue, while Lynda was with the bridal party in the couples family home.
The bridal party at the house was a buzz with activity with the hairdressers from pimped up pins and make up artist Aimee Louise Make Up Artist (MUA) having a conveyor belt of ladies to have their hair and make up put in place.
While the bridesmaids got ready Lynda went upstairs to get some details of the bride and her bridesmaids. The sixpence on the brides shoes is such a nice touch and we have never seen it before
Then back downstairs to take images of the beautiful flowers from Wedding Flowers Wales.
Time for Lyndsey to get her hair done by Pimped up Pins, something tickled her!
Hairs done and now for the make up.
While it a bit busy in the kitchen , time for Dad of the Bride to have a quiet cuppa in the living room along with his grand-daughter whose interest is with games on a phone.
Mother of the bride looking wonderful after her make up being added.
Cant forget the flower girl, nice bit of lip gloss to match her shiny nails
Mum seems pleased with the look
Meanwhile back at The King Arthur the boys are getting ready
Time for some shots of the groomsmen, ask them to strike a pose and they oblige. Darren had a blast with these guys.
And so to the smallest groomsman, the pageboy, how handsome does he look

All finishing touches ready and time for them to put on their dresses soon.
Just a photo call for the bridal party outside before they change
Time to take that walk downstairs to see everyone and for Dad to have his first look
Time for bridesmaids to have presents and that includes the flower girl.
Time for Lynda to make that drive to the King Arthur where the guests are now arriving.
While the bridal party arrives the groom is getting nervous .
Here comes the bride
Some group shots before the images of the Bride and Groom
Thanks to Chris singing to keep the guests entertained.
Boys turn to lift the bride…Umm, sorry guys the girls won!We cried laughing editing these!
Such a pretty wedding and lovely decor provided by Quaint Hearted Wedding- Rebecca Caddy and Flowers by Wedding Flower Wales. We particularly liked the top table back drop, frames the couple so nicely.
Onto the wedding reception and a bite to eat, before then Chris Summerill entertains the guest singing.
Best man and Groom Dad speeches give the best reactions especially from the Groom. Lee. The Bride Lyndsey, also enjoying the stories.
Following the cutting of the cake Lyndsey and Lee asked for some images of them and their children aka pageboy and Flowergirl. Such a gorgeous looking family.
Time to let the hair down and party into the night, while the queue was being made at the photobooth, local group The Villagers played some great tunes and the pageboy looked on mesmerised by their sound. The Bride and Groom take to the floor for their First Dance.
