Edit: Kate and Paul’s wedding website now online! Check it out here.

So, sheep, sheep and more sheep. That’s how I always envision Wales. This time however the only sheep were fakes ones in the grounds of Llyndir Hall for Kate and Paul’s wedding. I’m not going to say anything about whether it’s the most tasteful thing to have in your lovely lawns or whether it’s a good thing to prolong the Welsh stereotype but hey, they were kinda cool.

Anyway, I’d driven up to Llyndir near Wrecsam that morning with the ever gorgeous Holly in order to photograph the (also) ever gorgeous Kate marrying Mr Paul Sinclair. We spent the entire day there following Kate in her journey into married life, starting with her prep in the morning all the way through to the dancing at night. I had a really awesome time, thanks for having me along guys!

The day started with Kate getting ready. She was to wear a really gorgeous Amanda Wyatt dress which her bridesmaids carefully unwrapped. After zipping her into it they finally allowed her Dad in to see just how beautiful she looked.

We were really lucky with the ceremony, it was held outside in what started out as sun. Unfortunately just as the rings exchange started the heavens began to open. With a bit of speed though Kate and Paul managed to get it all done, jump under the cover of a gazebo then walk off into the sun…

Onto dinner and the speechs. I know this blog post is getting a bit long but I really had to put this photo in. It’s Paul’s toast to absent friends. I think it’s one of the most powerful images I’ve shot at a wedding.

I don’t think I have to say much about the best mans speach. I think the look on Kate’s face sums it all up…
