Charlotte & Wayne’s Castle Wedding in Tuscany

Weddings

I had the pleasure of photographing this delightful wedding in August this year. Charlotte & Wayne tied the knot in Tuscany alongside their wonderful family and fabulous friends.

I asked Charlotte to share a few words about my work.

I always knew I wanted Maria Farrelly to photograph my wedding so the fact that I was getting married abroad didn’t change this! I love her style of shooting and her creativity and having our wedding in a castle in the middle of Tuscany meant we would have beautiful images to look back on in years to come. If you love a photographer don’t look at the price tag, look at what you will get at the end of it. You can always cut back on other things as I believe your images are one of the most important elements of a wedding as they are the lasting memories you will look at forever.Italy_wedding_Tuscany001 Italy_wedding_Tuscany002 Italy_wedding_Tuscany003 Italy_wedding_Tuscany004 Italy_wedding_Tuscany005 Italy_wedding_Tuscany006 Italy_wedding_Tuscany007 Italy_wedding_Tuscany008 Italy_wedding_Tuscany009 Italy_wedding_Tuscany010 Italy_wedding_Tuscany011 Italy_wedding_Tuscany012 Italy_wedding_Tuscany013 Italy_wedding_Tuscany014 Italy_wedding_Tuscany015 Italy_wedding_Tuscany016 Italy_wedding_Tuscany017 Italy_wedding_Tuscany018 Italy_wedding_Tuscany019 Italy_wedding_Tuscany020 Italy_wedding_Tuscany021 Italy_wedding_Tuscany022 Italy_wedding_Tuscany023 Italy_wedding_Tuscany024 Italy_wedding_Tuscany025 Italy_wedding_Tuscany026 Italy_wedding_Tuscany027 Italy_wedding_Tuscany028 Italy_wedding_Tuscany029 Italy_wedding_Tuscany030 Italy_wedding_Tuscany031 Italy_wedding_Tuscany032 Italy_wedding_Tuscany033 Italy_wedding_Tuscany034 Italy_wedding_Tuscany035 Italy_wedding_Tuscany036 Italy_wedding_Tuscany037 Italy_wedding_Tuscany038 Italy_wedding_Tuscany039 Italy_wedding_Tuscany040 Italy_wedding_Tuscany041 Italy_wedding_Tuscany042 Italy_wedding_Tuscany043 Italy_wedding_Tuscany044 Italy_wedding_Tuscany045 Italy_wedding_Tuscany046 Italy_wedding_Tuscany047 Italy_wedding_Tuscany048 Italy_wedding_Tuscany049 Italy_wedding_Tuscany050 Italy_wedding_Tuscany051 Italy_wedding_Tuscany052 Italy_wedding_Tuscany053 Italy_wedding_Tuscany054 Italy_wedding_Tuscany055 Italy_wedding_Tuscany056 Italy_wedding_Tuscany057 Italy_wedding_Tuscany058 Italy_wedding_Tuscany059 Italy_wedding_Tuscany060 Italy_wedding_Tuscany061 Italy_wedding_Tuscany062 Italy_wedding_Tuscany063 Italy_wedding_Tuscany064 Italy_wedding_Tuscany065 Italy_wedding_Tuscany066 Italy_wedding_Tuscany067 Italy_wedding_Tuscany068 Italy_wedding_Tuscany069 Italy_wedding_Tuscany070 Italy_wedding_Tuscany071 Italy_wedding_Tuscany072 Italy_wedding_Tuscany073 Italy_wedding_Tuscany074 Italy_wedding_Tuscany075 Italy_wedding_Tuscany076 Italy_wedding_Tuscany077 Italy_wedding_Tuscany078 Italy_wedding_Tuscany079 Italy_wedding_Tuscany080 Italy_wedding_Tuscany081 Italy_wedding_Tuscany082 Italy_wedding_Tuscany083 Italy_wedding_Tuscany084 Italy_wedding_Tuscany085 Italy_wedding_Tuscany086 Italy_wedding_Tuscany087 Italy_wedding_Tuscany088 Italy_wedding_Tuscany089 Italy_wedding_Tuscany090 Italy_wedding_Tuscany091 Italy_wedding_Tuscany092 Italy_wedding_Tuscany093 Italy_wedding_Tuscany094 Italy_wedding_Tuscany095 Italy_wedding_Tuscany096 Italy_wedding_Tuscany097 Italy_wedding_Tuscany098 Italy_wedding_Tuscany099 Italy_wedding_Tuscany100 Italy_wedding_Tuscany101 Italy_wedding_Tuscany102 Italy_wedding_Tuscany103 Italy_wedding_Tuscany104 Italy_wedding_Tuscany105 Italy_wedding_Tuscany106 Italy_wedding_Tuscany107 Italy_wedding_Tuscany108 Italy_wedding_Tuscany109 Italy_wedding_Tuscany110 Italy_wedding_Tuscany111 Italy_wedding_Tuscany112 Italy_wedding_Tuscany113 Italy_wedding_Tuscany114 Italy_wedding_Tuscany115 Italy_wedding_Tuscany116 Italy_wedding_Tuscany117 Italy_wedding_Tuscany118 Italy_wedding_Tuscany119 Italy_wedding_Tuscany120 Italy_wedding_Tuscany121 Italy_wedding_Tuscany122 Italy_wedding_Tuscany123 Italy_wedding_Tuscany124 Italy_wedding_Tuscany125 Italy_wedding_Tuscany126 Italy_wedding_Tuscany127 Italy_wedding_Tuscany128 Italy_wedding_Tuscany129 Italy_wedding_Tuscany130 Italy_wedding_Tuscany131 Italy_wedding_Tuscany132 Italy_wedding_Tuscany133 Italy_wedding_Tuscany134 Italy_wedding_Tuscany135 Italy_wedding_Tuscany136 Italy_wedding_Tuscany137 Italy_wedding_Tuscany138 Italy_wedding_Tuscany139 Italy_wedding_Tuscany140 Italy_wedding_Tuscany141 Italy_wedding_Tuscany142 Italy_wedding_Tuscany143 Italy_wedding_Tuscany144 Italy_wedding_Tuscany145 Italy_wedding_Tuscany146 Italy_wedding_Tuscany147 Italy_wedding_Tuscany148 Italy_wedding_Tuscany149 Italy_wedding_Tuscany150 Italy_wedding_Tuscany151 Italy_wedding_Tuscany152 Italy_wedding_Tuscany153 Italy_wedding_Tuscany154 Italy_wedding_Tuscany155 Italy_wedding_Tuscany156 Italy_wedding_Tuscany157 Italy_wedding_Tuscany158 Italy_wedding_Tuscany159 Italy_wedding_Tuscany160 Italy_wedding_Tuscany161 Italy_wedding_Tuscany162

One moment please.

Personal

As the sun finally sets on 2013, I can’t help but reflect on the past year and the new one that will begin tomorrow.

Around this time, most photographers blogs tend to be filled with their end of year reviews… hundreds of beautiful images showing what an incredible year they’ve had. I apologise. I should really be doing the same. But it just doesn’t feel right.  Yes, I’ve had an incredible professional year, Photographed some beautiful weddings, travelled to some amazing places, launched an exciting new wedding blog and it appears…I’ve inspired some individuals along the way.

I won’t bore you with my ramblings this evening.  But what I will say is that over the last 12 months (like most of you) its been both good and bad.  I tend to write about the good stuff and try to forget the bad but its not always doable which is why I’ve kept quiet for most of the year.

Personally, its been incredibly hard. 

I’ve said goodbye to friends that should still be here. It was always going to be tough. I just didn’t think it would still hurt so much.

Watching close family go through the pain and grief of losing their babies and feeling totally helpless. I know just being there for them may have helped…but I wanted to do so much more.

Seeing both my kids collapse with seizures, rushed into hospital and waiting nervously to hear what the doctors will say. I can’t put into words the emotions that ran through my head that day. Thank goodness they are both well now.

My list goes on.

I’m sure each and every one of you have experienced your own difficulties. Many of which none of us will ever read about. I’m certainly not looking for sympathy here. Its life, my life. I’m not sure why I feel the need to write about all this. However, I’ve deleted it twice already and keep coming back to it, so its got to be worth putting out there, right?

 Throwing myself into my work has helped me deal with a lot of these horrid things. I do try to get a positive out of a negative. And it works, to an extent.

So, as I draw a line under 2013, and conclude its been both cruel and kind. I look to 2014 with a brave face and a ridiculous amount of confidence.

There are so many exciting things to look forward to:

Professionally:

  • weddings
  • portraits
  • commercial
  • professional practice
  • Cwtch the Bride
  • PLUS a new project!!!

Personally:

  • The imminent birth of my niece (due in feb)
  • Quality time with my family
  • More walks along Newgale beach
  • Turning 36yrs old eek!
  • My annual NYC adventure (maybe i can persuade my husband to join me this year?)
  • Lots and LOTS of laughter.

 

So here is to the safe arrival of 2014. I wish you all a great evening.

Enjoy x

 

 

Cwtchmas Party

Other

For those that follow me on Facebook and Twitter, You’ll know that besides photographing an awful lot of weddings this year, I’ve been working hard on establishing my lovely little welsh wedding blog, Cwtch the Bride.

When it launched in February, I never imagined it would grow so quickly and become as successful as it has. I regularly have to pinch myself!

To celebrate its sucess, we are having a party. And not just any party. Its a big one. Well, if I’m honest…its grand. And if i’m completely honest- i’m scared. At 6pm tonight, the National Museum in Cardiff will play host to Cwtch the Bride’s Official Launch party and Christmas Soiree. We’ve received over 300 RSVP’s (gulp) and 23 leading wedding suppliers are involved in providing what is sure to be, an epic night!

We still have space on the guest list too🙂 As its an invitation only event you’ll need to register your details via email to: info@cwtchthebride.com (Bride/Groom/Supplier). Hurry…

Festive Offer

News & Annoucements, Offers, Portraits

Its that time of year again when I get rediculously excited and take my kids off for their annual Christmas photo-shoot.

I use the images to create books to give as gifts to all the grandparents. And on christmas day, without fail, they turn each page and I watch as their tears roll into their smiles. They love these books so much.

Family photographs are so important to me and my family.

When was the last time you had a family photograph? For most, its always on the to-do list. “We must get round to it”. But the truth is, for most, its not a priority and it tends to move down the list and the kids grow up.

In my family, its a necessity. I spend most of my time behind the camera and work hard to build a beautiful collection of images that my family will treasure. I’m sure, when I’m old and losing my marbles, I will love looking back at these memories, being reminded of moments I know I’ll forget. Its the little things you see, the cheeky grin on my child’s face, the size of their hand when holding mine. Having these images will, over time be priceless to me. I know that.

So here it is. My festive offer to you. If you are yet to have a family portrait, Let me photograph your family, let me also produce a beautifully framed wall print for you to hang on your wall.

And tell me in years to come how glad you are you did it.

London Town…

Weddings

Yesterday I was in London. No…I wasn’t running the Marathon (maybe one day). I was meeting a couple who’s wedding I’m shooting next month.

I’ve never photographed at Finsbury Town Hall before so it was really important to me to have a look around and familiarise myself with the building and the surrounding area. Also, to find out what my clients loved most about it. After all, they chose the venue for a reason!

It certainly didn’t disappoint and I was blown away with everything I saw, especially the incredible staircase! I cannot wait to shoot this wedding. Here’s a few shots taken on my Iphone of things that caught my eye.
