Glenn & Olivia 20 04 17- Notes from the wedding book
So for 2017 I thought i would try something with my blogging method, after each wedding a few days later or so I write down the most memorable details about the day, what happened what I loved about it and want to share this with you.
Olivia and Glenn got married at Tyn Dwr Hall in North Wales. The building had a custom built extension which i believe wasn't even ready when Olivia and Glenn decided to get married there last year.See photos below. It stunning- maybe the best venue I've shot in? There were sheep in the background for the speeches, you don't get more rural than that.
Glenn arrived in a spectacular ghost busters car, you cant really make that up can you?
They have a daughter called Violet who was so sweet and the spit of Glenn. The bridesmaids had Violet coloured dresses, the nicest touch ever.
It was hilarious when someones phone went off during the ceremony, Glenn and Olivia paused during there vows and someones phone which was clearly still on directions said 'Turn left'. The whole room erupted with laughter.
Olivia's dress was stunning, the reason why it was so stunning was because it was classic white dress with a cut out back and diamantes all down the edging of the back.
Olivia's aunt had the biggest bag of dried petal confetti that she carried around with her right up until the confetti throwing where she practically dumped it on there heads.
In the venue there was a lot of history and lots of photos of weddings from years ago, it was such a nice touch.
The illustrations for the tables really caught me eye, that had been hand drawn with water colours, they were so beautiful.
The wedding flowers had eucalyptus in them,say no more!
The wedding cake was massive, it was literally 4 ft at least, Olivia had requested a whole section for a globe with fairy lights in the middle and when it came to cutting the cake I don't think they could bring themselves to actually cut it.
During the portrait session we went outside to see the grounds of the hall (very beautiful of course) and there is a white cottage that guests can stay in overnight. You can even rent it out for a few nights even if you're not getting married. There was a swing on the tree outside and it looked so quaint and cute
I worked alongside Leah Lombardi for this wedding, we are an amazing team. I also trialled out her Olympus Trip and ended up buying one straight after.
I also took some photos with my holga that I am not developing until September, I am going to do this with a few weddings this year..ooh the excitement. I LOVE Film.
