Earlier this year I headed out to North Wales to photograph Tilly and Peter’s wedding. It’s definitely one I’ll remember for a long time.
“We’re having the reception at Granny’s House,” Tilly told me in our early conversations about the wedding. It turns out that Tilly’s parents were married in exactly the same place! So this wedding has real meaning for the family and in particular, Tilly’s Granny (Lucy) who played host to the whole thing, including a hog roast get together the day after the wedding. I would like to thank her for being the perfect host, even to me as a lowly photographer. As photographers, we can often forget that for many weddings there’s a rich history and that venues are chosen for a reason. This wedding was truly homemade, which turned what can sometimes be a regimented and predictable day into something unique and special with real meaning for all involved.
Of course, there are many challenges when it comes to having a wedding at home. However, with an army of helpers, you can accomplish anything, and I’m sure you’ll agree that it was a roaring success. But don’t take my word for it, take a look at the images below to get sucked in by this beautiful story. Oh, and they had a Ceilidh in the evening, followed by a guard of honour to leave the marquee. Check out the final image… when all you need after a long day is a cup of tea!
Congratulations to Peter and Tilly and thanks for having me along for the ride. And thanks also for the tea and scones!
