After a week of rain and wind the day could not have been brighter. Sunny, but not too hot. Matt and Sheryl met at The Celtic Manor and it has had a special place in their hearts ever since.
We met Sheryl on the top floor in one of the very spacious Presidential Suites at the Celtic Manor. She was very relaxed, helped by a little bubbly ;-) Once we had been shown around (and stopped getting lost!!), we set about photographing Sheryl's beautiful dress and accessories.
Sheryl had two young bridesmaids, one of who was her daughter and the other her niece.
It was quite lovely having space for the bride to get ready without falling over things - and space we had in metres!
In the meantime, Matt and his best man, Leighton, were getting dressed in a room a couple of floors below. This was punctuated by the arrival of a gift from Sheryl of some Penderyn (Welsh) whisky, which had to be sampled of course!
The Celtic Manor arranged for transport to the suite at the top of the grounds where all the guests were assembled. Matt was looking slightly nervous, but broke into the most amazing smile as soon as he saw the beautiful Sheryl. The service was very personal and Sheryl's 11 year old son read beautifully and made everyone proud!
After drinks, guests enjoyed the spectacular views whilst the group photos were taken.
Afterwards everyone was treated to a wonderful three course meal in the permanent marquee.
Even though the groom disappeared for over an hour... ...well the site is huge(!), we finally managed to get some family and couple's shots in before the evening guests arrived.
The first dance was upon us before we could blink and the couple danced the night away.
We wish them a very happy life together. If the amount of kisses and laughs are anything to go by.... they will!
