I had been really looking forward to Mili and Geralt’s wedding at Portmeirion in Wales for a long time. They are an amazing couple, so much fun and full of happiness and Portmeirion is one of my absolute favourite wedding venues. It was a perfect match. All we needed was good weather on the day to bring everything together and wow, did we get it!
I travelled down to Portmeirion the day before the wedding, it’s a quite a long way from Manchester but it’s such a nice drive, the scenery in North West Wales is truly stunning. I stayed in a little village called Criccieth on the coast, such a pretty place with a beautiful beach. I would definitely like to go back there in the future and spend more time there.
On the morning of the wedding I went to meet Mili as she got ready with her bridesmaids in one of the little houses in Portmeirion village. Apparently it was the same house that Brian Epstein (who managed The Beatles) used to stay too, so that was very cool. The atmosphere on the morning was full of fun and excitement and I knew the rest of the day was going to be just as brilliant too – and it was!
Mili and Geralt got married in Portmeirion’s Hercules Hall which is such a great setting for a wedding ceremony. The ceremony was full of smiles and happy tears (I do love happy crying at a a wedding!) Afterwards we went outside in to the sunshine, Mili and Geralt got drenched in confetti before we took some group photographs as everyone enjoyed drinks and canapés overlooking the sea. It was all so perfect.
I have been lucky enough to visit Portmeirion a few times now but I don’t think I have ever seen it looking quite as perfect as it did on this day. The sun didn’t stop shining and it brought out all the colour and vibrancy of the village. So photogenic.
A massive thank you to Mili and Geralt for asking me to be a part of your beautiful wedding at Portmeirion and also to the staff there who couldn’t have been more helpful to me on the day. It was a pleasure to be a part of such an amazing wedding.
Here are just some of my favourite photographs from the day:
