Charlotte & James’s Portmeirion wedding
Charlotte met me at a Manchester wedding fair. She fell in love with my colorful style & booked me to photography her Portmeiron wedding that very day. I had visited Portmeirion with my family years before and had amazing memories, so was super excited to actually photograph a wedding there. We arranged a pre-shoot at the village a few months before the wedding; which was amazing ( if not windy!) as i got to check out all the my favourite locations again and recapture a feels of this beautiful wedding venue again. Despite a little rain on the day, it all finished on a high note with the sun coming out late afternoon; which meant we could get outside and get snapping away. Making my first Portmeirion wedding photography experience – totally AMAZING!
