Contemporary Wedding Video

I was asked to make a wedding video in Wales by a really young and funky couple. Wales is not a place I normally shoot weddings, but I was please to be making a contemporary wedding video outside of my usual wedding venues. The wedding took place in Portmerion, a national historic site in Wales.

We travelled up the day before and stayed in a hotel over the river from Portmerion. We drove over the little Welsh toll bridge into Portmerion the day before the wedding and we were blown away with what we saw. It was an explosion of colour and Italian architecture. Its no wonder the Welsh have made this a national historic site. We met up with the couple and had a rehearsal of what would happen the next day.

On the wedding day, the bride was getting ready in one of the colourful cottages near to the wedding hall. The views from the brides cottage over the river were breathtaking! The bridal preperation was going well and we managed to get some really good footage for the wedding DVD. The proud father arrived to walk his daughter the 40 meters to the wedding hall.

Inside the chapel the registrars greeted the guests in Welsh, then swapped to English for the remainder of the ceremony. The wedding hall was an amazing room with dark wooden walls and ceilings, creating some amazing lighting effects. The ceremony was very personal to the couple, especially as they had made their own vows for the occasion.

After the ceremony, we had a chance to take some amazing photos and video footage around the Portmerion village. Some of the buildings are truly amazing! We completed the contemporary couple shots on the beach in the soft sand.

Thank you so much for inviting me to this beautiful part of the UK that I never knew existed. I hope you like the contemporary wedding video.
