The Venue: Ridgeway Golf Club, Caerphilly, South Wales
The Happy Couple: Bronwyn and Richard Morris
'Across the window-pane
It pours and pours;
And swift and wide,
With a muddy tide,
Like a river down the gutter roars
The rain, the welcome rain!'
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
On that September Sunday it rained all day, well literally all day. But, the wet paving stone on which stood the bride and groom wearing their funky Mr and Mrs converse shoes only added more contrast to the words. Such cute shoes!
Bronwyn & Richard's lovely wedding was held inside the beautifully decorated marquee at the Ridgeway Golf Club in Caerphilly Mountain, South Wales. No purple rain but the purple cakes, ribbons and even the cute little dress worn by their little daughter Alison reflected all hues of purple and lilac. Our planned golf buggy ride along some of the more scenic parts of the golf course had to be postponed as the rain never relented for a long enough window, but with that came the opportunity to take a short stroll through a narrow strip of wood where I was able to request the couple to be just themselves, with Bronwyn and Richard lost in the flora. The result is a set of deeply romantic shots of the bride and groom relaxed in each other's gaze, no posing, no prompting, just the two of them seen through misty raindrops and wet leaves.
The photos in this little blog depict some of my personal favourite moments from a wonderfully joyous day as it unfolded. The rain never dampened spirits, merely making the guests huddle together and engage in more laughter as seen below. Here's wishing the happy couple many congratulations once again, may the sun shine upon you and even when it rains, I know you two will always smile in each other's company. Thank you for asking me to document your special day.
P.S. I also photographed Bronwyn and Richard's pre-wedding couple shoot, which can be seen here!
