Wedding Photographer Hensol Castle

I was super excited to meet Kate and her mum at a wedding showcase a few years ago. More so when Kate told me she needed a wedding photographer Hensol castle AND that she is a dancer! I could barely contain my excitement! We chatted excitedly and it wasn’t long before I was booked as their wedding photographer at Hensol castle!

Roll on a few agonising years of waiting and here are some highlights of Kate and Gregs wedding photographer Hensol castle! It really was the most amazing day and it certainly wasn’t spoilt by the copious amount of rain that fell! I asked them some questions about them and their amazing day, here is what they told me:

Where did you meet and how long have you been together?
We met 12 years ago in school! I went away training as a dancer and in my last year we got back in contact before I moved home. That was 5 years ago!

Where did you get married?
My grandad is buried in Llantrisant parish so the church is very close to my heart. Greg was in hospital having a shoulder operation in the vale, during his stay we went for a walk and come across Hensol castle, Greg asked did I want to book our wedding! We didn’t view any other venues we fell in love with the place! And what girl doesn’t want to get married in a castle? Hensol castle is the perfect place for wedding photography too!

Tell me a little about the amazing decor- who designed and made it happen?
I bought and made a lot myself! I’m the fussiest person in the world but I want to mention Laura smith who workes as part of Hensol castle team, she was amazing with us, she met up with us so many times for me to take pictures, decided where I wanted things and to measure nothing was too much trouble! I was so worried as I had a store room full of things for them to place out! And everything was perfect!
Our colours was very neutral I found a piece of ribbon that was a champagne colour that I tried to match the bridesmaid dresses up to, everything else was white and ivory. It all looked so elegant and classy in our wedding photography!

We got engaged in NYC we kept this as our theme using shops and attractions in New York as our table names.


Moss brothers Cardiff   supplied the suits and I highly recommend them. We decided to go for black tux and braces as the wedding was very neutral we also thought this would go well with the castle and kept classy. It certainly looks great in the photographs and makes a classy twist for our wedding photographer Hensol castle

Where did you get your dress? Vera wang bridal London- I was very lucky girl! It was such an elegant dress that complimented my body shape and the details were just exquisite!

Who was your makeup artist  Kathryn kift makeup artist

Who was your hair stylist Vous by Lyndsey

What cars/ transport did you have? (Website if possible please)

Who made your cake? Again please describe any special features (Website if possible please)

Who was your florist? 
Who was your florist? Hilary floral design! Flowers were a huge part of our decor! We had them everywhere! Hilary and the team were amazing!

Who was your jewellery designer?  Tiffany & co Pearl dainty bracelet

What brand were those incredible shoes? Jimmy choo – the feathers were amazing!!!


Was there anything else that you feel made your day truly special or any other comments to share?  Justin was amazing with us! He arrived early and was with us until the end! We can’t thank him enough for his patience! “We create” boys were fantastic with us and we can’t wait to see our video! James our singer made the atmosphere incredible during the church and our wedding breakfast And juke box was Fantastic for the evening entertainment!Feedback- was there anything else

Wedding photography King Arthur Hotel Gower 

Late last year I had a rather panicked message from Josie telling me that their wedding photographer had let them down last minute & would I be available to shoot their wedding photography King Arthur Hotel Gower! I was very excited to hear their plans as I’d photographed at the King Arthur Hotel many times & it is a truly lovely venue and not far from where I live (you can view one here!). Their plans sounded just wonderful and as luck would have it; it was my last available date in September. I was soon booked to be their wedding photographer! 

I asked Josie a little about their day & those who helped make it so special- here is what she told me:

Where did you get married and why did you choose the venue? King Arthur– we choose this Venue because of its rustic style room which is very different to most venues. 

Who was your venue decorator? The wedding business – My theme was Rustic but with some added glam.

Who supplied the suits? Crush Menswear

Where did you get your dress? Cariad bridal in Swansea supplied my wedding dress!

Who was your makeup artist  Jenna Kelly 

Who was your hair stylist  Lucie Summerfield bridal hair

What cars/ transport did you have? (Website if possible please) Exquisite bridal cars

Who made your cake? Bella cakes- I wanted lots of flowers & we even had a cake topper with Ceri’s car!

Who was your florist?  Blooming bells- they were just amazing

Who was your stationery supplier? Quaint hearted.

Was there anything else that you feel made your day truly special or any other comments to share? Everything went perfect. Justin was amazing from start to finish.
