Where do I start with Sarah and Simon’s Tal y bont uchaf farm wedding then? Sometimes you look forward to a wedding so much that it really couldn’t live up to your expectations. This North wales wedding didn’t disappoint at all.
Tal y bont uchaf farm is a new wedding venue in North Wales. Set in the countryside near Bangor, it is a stunning farm with a covered courtyard. This is just perfect for the more relaxed and informal wedding. It’s a blank canvas, so you are able to decorate it as you want. Obviously there are many little spots for photo opportunities. I love it!
Well, the fun started on the evening before their wedding. Most of the wedding guests were staying at the farm, so Sarah and Simon wanted me to photograph the fun and the build up to the big day. It was just great to meet up with all the guests in a more relaxed environment, which really set the tone for the whole wedding.
We even had a practice with some smoke grenades, which honestly was the funniest thing I have seen for ages. More of this please!
On the morning of the wedding the bridal party got themselves ready at the magnificent Chateau Rhianfa, on Anglesey. Once again it was super relaxed, with just as much fun and laughter as the night before.
The wedding ceremony at Chateau Rhianfa was in the drawing room, overlooking the Menai Straits. There were happy tears, a beautiful reading, and more tears. It was lovely.
You don’t get to ride a speedboat at every wedding, and when Sarah and Simon told me we were all going to be jumping on the RIBs at Menai Bridge I was beyond excited. In the beautiful North Wales sunshine we sped along the Straits under the bridges up to Plas Newydd, and back past Chateau Rhianfa. It was a fantastic hour, laughing almost non-stop.
Once we finished the ride we headed back to the farm for the partying.
The world’s largest confetti cannons were bought in error, they were way bigger than they expected, but what a happy accident they were. By far the most confetti I have seen at one wedding. It was amazing.
To finish the day off perfectly we were treated to the most beautiful evening sunshine. Golden hour really did its thing for us.
