Lizzy & Matt's intimate wedding at Castell Coch, Cardiff

I feel very lucky to say that all couples  make me feel welcome when I am shooting a wedding, but these guys went above and beyond. With an intimate wedding of 30 guests I really did feel like one of them and enjoyed myself so much. Bridal prep was different to most I'd experienced before.. Lizzy spent the morning ultra chilled getting into her dress last minute after making her own bouquets from flowers she'd bought from the flower market the day before. A pinterest inspired colourful collection which actually wins my favourite bouquet of the year award due to the thrifty but beautiful nature of it! 

Their son Gregor absolutely loves black cabs so of course the obvious choice of transport was just that and after a lot of researching Lizzy tracked one down! Gregor loved it so much it proved to be a humourous challenge to get him out of it for photographs...

After a short but sweet ceremony at the very grand Castell Coch and some champagne out the back, everyone made their way to a lovely country pub where celebrations continued in the sun. I love weddings where people throw out the rule book and do whatever they want and these guys did something that just suited them perfectly - a relaxed, child friendly wedding full of great food, drink & company.
