Kate and Will, along with many of their guests travelled all the way from Sydney to celebrate their marriage in the idyllic grounds of Florin in Llanarth, Wales. While the weather wasn't quite up to Australian standards, the rain held off just enough for everyone to make the most of a stunning outdoor ceremony and reception. 

In the morning, Kate’s wedding preparations were made in the luxurious surroundings of the master bedroom, twinned with one of the most spectacular bathrooms I’ve ever seen! Kate's show-stopping dress was by the amazing Ukrainian designer Oksana Mukha, which she complemented with a cathedral length veil, a beautiful bouquet of flowers and gypsophila in her hair. As a photographer, I was spoilt for choice, as next door there was another huge bedroom with large windows, plus the grand staircase on the way to the ceremony.

Meanwhile Will, the groom, had been suiting up in the stylish grass fronted garden house, which made for a relaxing environment as he and his best man put the final touches to their clothing and wrote a few extra lines in their speeches. Despite a light rain shower, the intimate outdoor ceremony went ahead as planned, with a few tears and a lot laughs at Will and Kate’s personal vows to each other. After the ceremony, it was time for a few formal(ish) pictures with the beautiful and varied backdrops at Florin before guests could begin to let their hair down and enjoy the party atmosphere. 

Some of the suppliers I worked alongside and can highly recommend include, Holden Catering (that Paella was something else!), Megan and Claude for the beautiful props in the outside space, Jessie Dallimore MakeupApplewood Films and Just Imagine... Weddings and Events who worked tirelessly to make the day look effortless.
