New House Hotel Wedding Venue In Cardiff
Pulled out all the stops
In the week previous to Kelly & Carl’s wedding I met with them at their chosen New House Hotel wedding venue to run through their final plans of their day. Cool, calm and gorgeous was an understatement. I couldn’t have asked for a finer couple. It was such a pleasure to be invited to capture your ceremony and reception celebrations. On the day you pulled out all the stops. There was no stopping you. Thank you both, you were amazing.
Do you? I Do!
I was greeted by one very calm and collective Kelly, along with her sisters and family. Everyone was in good spirits and it didn’t take long before the bottles of bubbly were popping. I spent an hour or so floating around Kelly documenting the minutes as they unfolded.
Carl arrived at the New House in style in an Aston Martin. He was certainly the man of the moment when he was greeted by his ushers and friends. Soon their wedding ceremony was about to start and Carl stood nervously with his Best Man down the aisle inside the New House Hotel wedding marquee.
Out in the Field
Our wedding couple portrait session took place within the overgrown grass to the front of New House Hotel wedding venue. Kelly and Carl were willing to do what it takes to get some great photographs. We climbed fences, fought off flies and battled through the long grass. My hat goes off to Kelly for doing all this in her wedding dress. Thank you both, we couldn’t have achieved these images without your willingness.
Always great to shoot alongside the trustworthy and gorgeous cinematographers and great friends Richard and Rhys from Aurora Wedding Film. Thanks as always guys for your support on the day.
Great to see and hear the ladies from Taliesin String Quartet , who played the afternoon whilst the wedding party soaked up the sun and drinks.
Also, thank you to the New House Hotel wedding venue’s staff. Great team players and definitely at the top of their game.

Magnificent Wedding Location
I headed North for Catherine & Mark’s Portmeirion Village wedding and arrived a day early to have a scout around this unique Italian themed venue. It was a first for me and I was simply blown away, it was breathtaking! This little gem is located along Penrhyndeudraeth coast in Gwynedd North Wales. It’s also a local attraction and well worth a visit if you’re passing.
The day has come
I can honestly say I’ve looked forward to this day for quite some time, almost as much as Catherine and Mark. I’ve known Catherine for many years as we used to work alongside each other in the photography world. We were an awesome team back in the day and she is still as awesome to this very day.
Preparations at Castell Deudraeth
Catherine’s bridal preparations at Castell Deudraeth was one of the most relaxed moments I’ve ever had the pleasure to cover. Nothing phased Catherine, she even found the time to Skype her close friend Sarah in Australia while she was relaxing beforehand. Time was soon upon us and the moment came for Catherine to change into her dress. Catherine looked beautiful. Her choice of dress and shoes suited her elegance perfectly. I knew Mark was going to be blown away!
Civil Ceremony & Gardens
We headed down the path through the beautiful Portmeirion Village wedding venues grounds. Mark was eagerly awaiting his bride inside Hercules Hall where their ceremony took place. Catherine glided down the aisle towards her future husband. The next twenty minutes were joyful, memorable and emotional, but that’s enough about me, they seemed pretty loved up too. Everyone gathered outside after the signing of the register and coincidentally, there was another event taking place in the gardens. We were welcomed by the local brass band. You couldn’t have made it up, it was perfect timing. We then managed a few portrait shots around the colourful grounds before the Welsh heavens opened up.
Time to party
Once the food had been eaten, the speeches were applauded and the first dance had been danced, it was now time to party and what a blast it was. I witnessed some of the best groom dancing I’ve ever seen, and of course no wedding is ever complete without a traditional dance off between Mark and bridesmaid Nicola. They totally stole the floor, especially Mark with his unique Night Fever dance moves. Everyone laughed at this surprise dance and enjoyed the floorshow!

Recently married at the New House Hotel in Cardiff, Jo & Ross had the amazing day they wished for. Their civil ceremony took place in the main part of the hotel whilst their reception commenced in the recently upgraded New House Hotel Wedding Marquee. It was such a blast. Ross should be in the entertainment world, he had me in stitches all day. An adorable couple, thank you again both.
I Love a Thank You
It was an honour to receive thank you cards from Jo & Ross. My role in covering weddings is job satisfaction in itself, but all the more rewarding when couples take the time out to personally thank me for my efforts on their day.
Hand written within the card was another message “To Adrian. We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard work and dedication on our special day. We couldn’t have wished for a better photographer. You did a grand job. Best wishes. Mr & Mrs James”.
As well as the card, they also took time out to write a personal message on my business Facebook page. It read :
“Now that we have a spare 5 mins since the wedding and honeymoon we would like to thank you for such a fantastic job you did on our special wedding day. You worked so hard and were so professional throughout the shoot. You were fun and brought a comic element to the day and really made us feel relaxed and calm. From the sneak preview you gave us we are absolutely thrilled with the results and cannot wait to choose our final pics for the album in the future months. On behalf of myself, my new husband and the rest of the family we would just like to say a huge thank you once again, you have provided excellent service to both myself and my sister and for any brides and grooms out there still deciding on who to choose for their big day….look no further…Adrian’s your man!!! Thanks again and look forward to seeing you soon xx”
