Maes Manor Hotel Winter Wedding – Matthew & Nikki

Winter Wedding

Matthew and Nikki recently married at Eglwysilan Church near Caerphilly and moving onto Maes Manor Hotel in Blackwood for their reception. Possibly one of the most pleasant but coldest wedding I have ever shot.

The Perfect Service

Snow appeared overnight on our hills and a 4×4 was on hand just in case. Luckily roads and county lanes were clear for everyone to arrive safe and sound. During the service it was a lovely treat to see Reverend Sue Rees thoughtfully suggest that guests and children simply relax and do as they wish. No restrictions, nothing. Even Bailey, Matthew and Nikki’s young boy happily played in the aisle during their wedding ceremony. A lovely touch and a lovely wedding to witness.

Its A Wrap

After a warm toasty service their guest didn’t hang about outside because of a bitter wind chill and took a mad dash to their vehicles. Heading as swiftly onto Maes Manor we all headed indoors where there celebrations didn’t take long to warm up.

Matthew and Nikki later braved the cold as we headed out into the stunning Manor grounds for a quick portrait shoot. Nikki’s shoulder rap came in handy and perfectly matched and set off her stunning wedding dress.

Blast From The Past

It was a blast, thanks both. Being asked to document their wedding was such an honour as I’ve known Matthew and his family for many years. Matthew’s all grown to be a true gentleman, but I’ll always remember his and his brother cheeky little faces as young lads.

Preparations Away

Bridal preparations took place at their home in LLanfach, Abercarn. Every room apart from one was undergoing a complete renovation. In their own words, their home was masked off like a CSI Crime Scene lol. Seven bridesmaids, hairdresser, parents and numerous guest later we all pulled together allowing me to cover and have Kay relaxed and ready as gracefully as could possibly be. All in all, the day went without a hitch and even the Welsh weather behaved itself for the remainder of the day at the Maes Manor Hotel.

Grand Wedding Venue

Both their wedding ceremony and reception took place inside the Maes Manor Hotel. It’s such a splendid venue. Its been like a second home for me as I’ve shot many weddings there over the years. Their grounds a extremely maintained and is a perfect location for your wedding portraits.
