Clare & Mike’s Wedding, Penarth Pier & St Donat’s Castle.

What a great wedding! I had the best day photographing Clare & Mike’s wedding at Penarth Pavillion Pier followed by the wedding reception at St Donat’s Castle, Vale of Glamorgan. These guys had a perfect mix of everything, the beach, the castle, sunshine, and a great group of people to help them celebrate.

I joined Clare at her parental home for the bridal prep shots, then we made our way to the recently renovated Pavillion in Penarth, which is such a beautiful building to share with your guests. There were torrential downpours during and after the ceremony, but luckily for us, we had a window of opportunity when the sunshine paid us a visit and where we could get a few shots of the happy couple along the pier, whilst the guests were treated to special tokens from the couple to chips or ice cream.

On the way to the reception at St Donat’s Castle, we stopped for some couple shots along the seafront near the venue, then the bride and groom moved on to join their guests at the venue’s amazing Banqueting Hall for the reception.

After the speeches, the happy couple continued with the celebrations and danced the night away with family and friends.
