Aneira and Robyn got married in June at their beautiful local chapel in Aberhosan, Macchynlleth and back to their home marquee, which was at the farm with stunning views.. They had their wedding in Machynlleth ceremony at the local chapel which Aneira travelled to in a beautiful red E-Type Jaguar. They chose their at home marquee because it’s their family home and also the beautiful views. I love shooting weddings in Wales because the surroundings are stunning and the people are just wonderful. The venue was just fantastic, lots of lovely personal details referring to music, family and traditional welsh items. Aneira’s parents run a holiday cottage business and I loved the fact they took all the sofas and chairs out of the properties to make an amazing seating area for everyone to sit down and have a drink!!
The wedding itself was a church service in a stunning chapel in a little village. During the ceremony there were such wonderful Welsh Hymns and had me fighting back the tears! I have never felt such a patriotic crowd and it sent the biggest shivers down my spine!. It was so emotional.
The reception was in a beautifully decorated marquee – vintage inspired, and they had a cocktail drinks reception in the afternoon, and a live band in the evening. They decorated the venue with bunting and musical items, because they work in the music industry. For dinner they served a roast dinner, which was absolutely delicious.They got all the guests involved with dinner too!
The first dance Robyn and Aneria sang to each other which was a complete surprise for their guests, and I finished off the evening with sparklers.
The most memorable bit about the day was the ceremony, because I simply have not heard live singling like that in church before! It actually made me speechless as I have never heard people sing so beautifully and with such power before/. They also had incredibly funny speeches during the reception – it was hilarious! I really wish I could speak Welsh too! I loved listening to everyone speak Welsh all day, not a really a clue what they were saying until I heard words like “Jager Bomb!’ and ‘Discovery Car!” and thought it must be a funny story!
Aneira wore the most beautiful dress – look at all that amazing beading on her back in the photos and Robyn wore a wonderful suit with a wool waistcoat and pink wool tie and they looked great. Aneira’s shoes were so sparkly and her favourite addition to her outfit. Robyns’s cufflinks were a lovely little touch to his suit -a little gifts from Aneira..
Aneira and Robyn got in touch with me when they saw Cheryl and Ian’s wedding that I shot in Montgomery, Wales (click here to check out their wedding) and their enquiry was really touching. They said they wanted a relaxed photographer, and I loved that they were so relaxed too!
Aneira and Robyn’s wedding in Machynlleth was everything I love about weddings and was such a laugh. Here’s their stunning wedding!
Having a marquee wedding or wedding in Machynlleth please do not hesitate to get in touch, I would love to photograph your special day!
