Tom and Natalie got married in Rhulen (Wales), in the littlest of white chapels, surrounded by hills and valleys; it felt intimate and very close to nature, just as they wanted. It was a bright & colourful outdoor English fete style wedding, with lawn games, hampers and hog roast and last but not least, ceilidh for the party!
It was thanks to Tom’s grandparents, who bought a house in the area many years before, that he came to grow up in such a beautiful place and fall in love with it forever. He met Natalie and they often spent time over there together. They wanted to celebrate their marriage here together with their dearest, in the most relaxed way possible. They hired a Burgoynes marquee which they set up in a field just below Cwmpiban Barn which is a self catering holiday home nestled on the hillside, boasting wonderful views of the Radnor Hills and Edw Valley. It felt like home.
The weather stayed true to its Britishness, ranging from stormy skyes (making for some great dramatic photos) to glorious sunshine and absolutely unbelievable light (photographer’s heaven, pour les connaisseurs). In the evening we went up in Tom and Natalie’s Renault Campervan, all the way to the top of the hill to their favourite spot, for the bride and groom photographs, from where we could take advantage even more of the landscape and beauty that surrounded us.
It was so peaceful up there! And epic. Nat and Tom spent a few quiet moments together away from everyone and me and Rich just couldn’t be happier to find ourselves in that place, at that time, with a like-minded couple like Nat and Tom. It was a relaxed & joyful wedding that we will never forget!
