Boho/Vintage Wedding

A couple of months ago I was lucky enough to photograph Natalie & Ryan’s wedding in the lovely old church of St Mary’s in Bedgelert

Beddgelert is undoubtedly Snowdonia’s loveliest village. A place of legend, culture and history, set in the heart of Snowdonia National Park. This tiny village is surrounded by mountains, rivers and lakes and is incredibly beautiful.

Anyone that knows mountains though knows that the weather can be, shall we say changeable! When we met at the location a couple of weeks prior to the wedding the weather had really set in. Low mist, rain and freezing winds.

We weren’t going to let that put us off though and had a great time exploring the area and taking a few photos.

Natalie and Ryan had put a lot of thought into this wedding. They knew exactly what they wanted and had enjoyed a terrific time planning everything and making it happen. They had found a beautiful location a beautiful church, and managed to locate a wonderful barn nearby to host the reception.

The Grooms hotel just across the river was only 5 minutes walk away

 

 

The Wedding had a real vintage style to it reflected in the vintage VW camper that transported the Bride, through to the dresses, jewelry and flowers. Natalie had opted for individual Bridesmaids outfits rather than matching dresses and had chosen something quite different for herself too. The lady has amazing taste, everyone looked fantastic and it made a refreshing change, quite in keeping with the rest of the day.

The Bride and Groom were transported to the reception in the VW camper and a bus was laid on to ferry guests to the barn.

The Barn had a proper vintage makeover; Natalie & Ryan had organised the decoration, the seating plan, and table settings with a little help from their friends.

 

After the wedding breakfast we took advantage of the late evening sunshine to take some photographs of the Bride and Groom down by the lake. For the group shots we decided to arrange everyone on the naturally hilly landscape. The barn itself had a wonderful walled garden and there was an open fire to keep the chill off.

That Cake I mentioned

There aren’t a lot of hotels out in the mountains and Natalie and Ryan had the perfect solution for that. There was a bus to take the less adventurous guests back to civilisation but for those that were up for it (Including Natalie and Ryan) …This

Wig Wams!

Back indoors for the First Dance

 

And it wasn’t long before everyone joined in

 

Some people were determined to make every moment last and enjoy the beautiful evening in the heart of Snowdonia – and who can blame them 🙂

Give up yourself unto the moment.
The time is now.
Give up yourself unto the moment.

Let’s make this moment last.
