Mel and Julian’s Wedding at Hensol Castle

Talk about celebrity weddings! I’ve NEVER seen so many spectators outside a church eagerly waiting for a glimpse of the very beautiful bride arriving!

I arrived at Mel’s sisters house in the morning, while Ed my 2nd shooter headed to Julian’s dads. Again a first for me, I’ve never seen such generosity, the gifts Mel gave her brides maids were incredible. And not forgetting the gift she received from her husband to be! No less than a beautiful Louis Vuitton hand bag, all ready for their honeymoon in Dubai! But the emotions showed when Mel read the card from her sister Steph, and she did her very best not to spoil her make up!

So we were a little late getting to the church, but we got there with 30 seconds to spare before Julian had promised he’d be legging it! But in all seriousness, the boys looked fabulous in their dinner jackets… rather bit Bond-esque!

After a beautiful and rather emotional ceremony, in came Mel’s school choir to belt out their version of Bruno Mars’ “Marry You” Completely amazing!! And after some confetti throwing, we headed to Hensol Castle for the wedding reception, to be greeted by blue skies, ice cream and warm waffles! The reception room looked the best I’ve ever seen it, Mel’s ideas, creativity and generosity were very evident in the gifts she gave to her guests and the pure beauty of the room.

After the speeches, rapping, etc…. the dance floor opened up to confetti bombs and some crazy dancing… finished off nicely with a sparkler walk through…

A completely incredible day!
