It wasn't too long ago that I did an engagement shoot with Lianne and Dean (you can see that blog here), but what a what a contrast this day was to the misty and moody day we had at Llyn Llech Owain! It was a beautiful from the offset and with the relaxed family atmosphere I could tell this was going to be a great wedding. The day began at Lianne and Dean's home in Llandybie where I documented bridal preparation before zipping over the other side of the village to see the Groomsmen as they got ready to don their kilts.

With everyone ready, the wedding party made their ways over to Llandybie Church. Once the happy couple married I followed them in their VW Camper to Paxton 's Tower.

Paxton's Tower

Despite it being only 20 minutes away from home, this was a part of Carmarthenshire I hadn't visited prior to my scouting visit a week before. It was the ideal location to stop as we drove towards the Olde Barns at Pen y Graig farm just outside Carmarthen. The sun was shining strongly so I was on the lookout for pockets of shade for photographs. Luckily, due to the gargantuan size of the 17C tower, there was plenty once we'd reached the tower. This came with stunning views of the Tywi valley and Dryslwyn Castle.

This venue is an absolutle gem, it was a complete pleasure to photograph here. It really is as rustic as it gets and despite still being relitively new, they seem to have gotten everything right. A striking and impressive venue in a beautiful West Wales setting.

Following the reception and speeches, we took advantage of the evening light and went for a short photo session. I always suggest this later on if the weather permits as the light nearest to sunset is usually at its softest and best.
