Tyn Dwr Hall Wedding

Rachel & Mark’s brilliant

wedding at this unique

North Wales wedding venue

 

 

North Wales Wedding Venue

Tyn Dwr Hall is a stunning Grade II* wedding venue in North Wales, nestled among ancient woodland and rich greenery in Llangollen. Built in 1866, this unique building boasts a mock Tudor design, striking turrets and a bell tower, and the grounds and gardens it looks out on are nothing short of magical. And that’s from their website. And it’s true – Tyn Dwr Hall is a fantastic venue for a wedding. It has everything – style, charm, space and some magnificent grounds to enjoy a Tyn Dwr Hall wedding, like Rachel & Mark had recently. It was a privilege to be asked to be part of Rachel & Mark’s Tyn Dwr hall Wedding, so here are a few of the images from the day…

Nikki Webb Makeup Artist

It was great working alongside Nikki Webb for the morning; she had everything under control. Nikki is a great freelance hair and make up artist based in the North West offering fresh and on trend make up and specialises in fashion, editorial, bridal and commercial work. Her website is well worth checking out. On duty with me for the day was my good trusted friend and colleague Martin Hambleton. So, between us, Nikki and the girls…. the day was just one big relaxed affair full of jokes and laughter…it never really felt like work! Martin and I opted to photograph the day with minimal kit, travelling light with two Nikons each, all fitted with a 50mm and 24mm prime lens – allowing us to move quickly and unobtrusively capture the day. Martin spent the morning with the groomsmen whilst I was buying around photographing Rachel’s dress, shoes etc plus some makeup photos.

Emotional Dads at a wedding

Dads at weddings are generally emotional…oh yes they are, they just hide it well at times. When Rachel’s dad appeared and saw his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time, emotions ran high. Nobody spoke, it was all so quiet. I grabbed that one shot reflected in the mirror I wanted and left them hugging in silence. Wow, that WAS a moment to experience, and one I hope to share with my daughter when she gets married one day.

Wedding guests at Tyn Dwr Hall

As the wedding guests started arriving, the ceremony room was finished being set out and dressed, the atmosphere was brilliant. The weather looked promising, people were enjoying pre-ceremony drinks, and children ran around the grounds laughing. We were all set for a fantastic Tyn Dwr Hall Wedding! As the guests were seated, Mark and the groomsmen were in position, it was time for Rachel and her dad’s entrance. Martin and I quietly captured both angles…all the shots looked great so it was hard to choose what to include here. As the music started, down the aisle they came.

Wedding celebrations at Tyn Dwr Hall

As they newlyweds emerged from the Hall, the confetti was thrown and it was total chaos for a few moments. Sometimes, as photographers we have to trust our cameras to still ‘see’ through the confetti clouds and capture what we see. Yet again, the Nikons nailed it. With a few minutes of family group photos to capture, ably assisted by the ushers, we were done and the guests could grab a drink. Rachel Mark and I stayed out for a few minutes, capturing some natural, mostly non-posed couple photos while the bar was under ‘siege’ 😉

Wayne Farrow Wedding Singer

It was great to work with Wayne Farrow again on this ‘gig’. This guy has so much energy and MC’s a wedding so brilliantly. Oh…and he can really sing too! It was great to be immersed in the wedding guests with our wide angle lenses while they toasted the happy couple with face-cringing shots and then battering Martin and I with napkins while the whole room exploded into song. A mass conga, led by Rachel, a full ‘male voice choir’ (erm!) on bended knee singing Wonderwall, plus some brilliant speeches took the reception to another level. Great work Wayne!

Wedding Entertainment at Tyn Dwr Hall

From the end of the speeches, to the first dance, the entertainment was full on. Wayne was in top voice, ably assisted by several wedding guests at any given time, the party ran on and on, never ‘stopping for air’. Soon, though it was time to take the party indoors for Rachel & Mark’s first dance…and more partying! This was a brilliant day, and we loved being part of it…thanks Rachel & Mark!
