Abby and Lloyd at Clearwell Castle


Last month I had the pleasure of capturing the wedding day of Abby and Lloyd at Holy Trinity in Newport and then onto Clearwell Castle. I was really looking forward to photographing over the bridge as I’ve known Abby since University so I was delighted when she got in contact about photographing her and Lloyd’s big day.

I started off the morning preparations at Abby’s mums house where I was immediately welcomed by the loveliest of people and a quality spread put on by Rhian (Abby’s mum)

The morning preparations were relaxing as ever, I photographed some lovely details that Abby had incorporated into the day and got to know everyone a little better. Especially Abby’s beautiful niece Mali.

Once everyone was ready it was time to head off to the Church. It was a beautiful traditional ceremony which was followed by confetti outside in the winter sun.

Onto Clearwell Castle where we began with photos on arrival before we lost the light and made the most of the beautiful backdrops that surrounded the castle. A superb 3 courses (mash and roast potatoes!) followed by a range of emotional speeches set the evening into full swing.

Everyone enjoyed the evening entertainment upstairs with sparklers and caricatures and later made their way downstairs to let their hair down in the party room.

Thanks for a brilliant day guys.
