A fun same sex wedding in the Vale of Glamorgan
It’s not everyday you photograph a wedding that’s also being featured as part of a TV series. However, that’s exactly what I faced with Dianne and Kathy’s the Bear Hotel Cowbridge wedding in the Vale of Glamorgan in Wales.
Maybe it was because there was a TV crew around that the two brides wanted a much more relaxed and unobtrusive approach to their same sex wedding photography. So given my candid, stress-free wedding photojournalism approach, I was delighted to be asked to be their wedding photographer.
The Bear Hotel Cowbridge
Cowbridge is a charming market town in the Vale of Glamorgan, about 7 miles west of the Welsh capital city Cardiff. Surrounded by fields of grazing cattle and boutique lined cobbled streets, its no surprise it’s considered one of the best places to live in Wales.
The Bear Hotel itself is centrally placed on the main high street and is just as picturesque with its old stonework facade and hanging flower baskets. Inside there are a stunning selection of suites to choose from for a wedding day.
Kathy and Dianne opted to have their same sex wedding ceremony in the Georgian Ballroom, which was just beautiful with its stunning high ceilings and dripping chandeliers. They then had the reception in the St Quentin’s Suite which, no pun intended, marries contemporary style with classic design.
Curvy Brides Boutique TV Show
As I mentioned at the outset, Dianne was being featured on the TV show Curvy Brides Boutique, so there was also a full film and production company there for the morning preparations – in addition to the show’s presenters’ Jo and Ali.
It certainly made for an interesting and different bridal preparations and I quickly understood why Kathy and Dianne wanted a much more relaxed approach for the rest of their wedding day!
I’m sure you’ll agree from the small selection of images from the day, Kathy and Dianne had a wonderful Bear Hotel Cowbridge wedding.
