Miskin Manor Wedding Photography – Mia & Richard

Once Upon A Time

I’ve got a soft spot for this young adorable bride as we once worked closely together in previous years. The gorgeous Mia and Richard took their celebrations to The Miskin Manor wedding venue in Pontyclun, near Cardiff. Firstly, their ceremony was held at Ystrad Mynach Church. Mia contacted me many moons ago to ask about my availability. At this time they had not confirmed their reception venue and coincidentally I bumped into them viewing The Miskin Manor whilst I was covering another wedding. Their choice of venue did them proud. It is a remarkable venue. One of the best in South Wales.

Catching Some Rays

I arrived early at Mia’s bridal preparations greeted by a very excitable family dog named Moby. I soon heard Mia’s distinguished giggle joined in with the laughter of her bridesmaids as they all relaxed on the decking of the the sunny back garden. They were tucking into a banquette breakfast fit for royalty. As expected, this day was going to be epic. A day I have looked forward to capturing for sometime.

Give and Receive

On my arrival at Ystrad Mynach Church I was greeted by a very welcoming groom, Richard. I took this opportunity to capture Richard along with his best man and the arrival of a few guests and bridesmaids beforehand. Mia and her proud father arrived in good time and we moved up the church path to get the ceremony underway. The in-house rules of this church refrain photographers from capturing wedding ceremonies but soon Mia & Richard appeared outside the church under the sunny skies within the hour as husband and wife. The happily married couple and their guests mingled outside for a short while and I documented the atmosphere before we all made the short distance onto their Miskin Manor wedding reception.

Country House Hotel Wedding

On arrival to the Miskin Manor wedding venue we were treated to the amazing sound of bagpipes from John Campbell, a true gent. I love the sound of bagpipes, they give me goosebumps. The guests congregated on the rear lawn of The Miskin Manor’s beautiful grounds where drinks were being served and Mia and Richard soon arrived being led in style with John’s bagpipes. Such a remarkable scene.

Wonderful Welsh Wedding

Their whole wedding day was amazing. Everything went to plan and ran perfectly. Thanks to the Miskin Manor wedding coordinator Jennifer and her staff who sure know how to run a tight ship. Also, big respect to Perfect Day Cars too. It was great to see myself, John our Bagpiper, The Miskin Manor wedding venue and Perfect Day Cars all working together again.

Truly Epic

I first met with Laura & Edward back in 2013 when they booked me for their photography coverage at the Miskin Manor Hotel wedding venue in Pontyclun. August 2015 seemed so far away at that time, but I knew it was going to be an epic wedding to look forward to.

Dream Team

The preparations on the day started from Laura’s family home in Caerphilly. I was welcomed to the flow of bubbly and the joyful laughter from the bridal party and parents. It was a pleasure here to work alongside makeup artist Kathryn, hairdresser Lisa and all day with videographers Steve & Gareth from Embrace Videography. (psst… that’s a dream team alert and hint right there!)

Following a short dash down the M4, we reached the grand venue of the Miskin Manor Hotel. I was met by one extremely excited groom Edward whose nerves kicked in while awaiting his gorgeous bride Laura.

What a reception

After the ceremony the wedding party spent the afternoon welcoming their guests and mingling on the lawn with drinks and nibbles. Edward’s family travelled from Poland and were overwhelmed by not only the wedding arrangements, but also the hotel and grounds. Lucky for them our usual wet Welsh weather held back and the sun shone for the remainder of the day and continued into the evening during the reception.

Yet another dreamy wedding and an awesome couple to photograph. Thank you both, it was such a pleasure to capture your day.

Adorable family

It was an honour to be chosen as Clair and Chris’s wedding photographer. Such an adorable couple. They didn’t stop smiling and laughing all day. Their gorgeous daughter Abi also played a big part in the day, being one of three bridesmaids.

Their wedding day took place at Miskin Manor in Pontyclun on the outskirts of Cardiff. Their ceremony was held within Miskin’s Minstrel Hall, with their reception breakfast and evening party following shortly after in Miskin’s adjoining Cedar Room.

Stunning Venue

We were fortunate to have a dry and bright afternoon to allow the wedding party some time to relax and enjoy the stunning grounds of Miskin Manor. I thoroughly enjoyed capturing Clair and Chris’s special moments from their day.

My aim was to document the day with a mixture of naturally guided poses. After the speeches we returned outside for some more relaxed shots around the picturesque bridge near the entrance to the Miskin Manor Hotel.

Also had pleasure in shooting alongside my highly talented and good friends, videographers Alan and Helen. Thanks both, always a pleasure. You can check them out here Grove Video Services
