When Lucy agreed to go out on a date with Owain she swore to herself it would be her last POF date. She’d had some rather ‘memorable moments’ and was about to leave online dating behind. Little did she know that it would in fact be her last first date ever and POF would soon be a thing of the past for both of them! Their hour long date turned into an eight hour day together walking up to Aberfalls and chatting away.
Both adventurers, Owain kept with the theme for his proposal. Whilst enjoying an overnight trip to Oslo when they were on holiday in Norway, he proposed on a hillside overlooking the city.
Given their love of the outdoors and walking it wasn’t a surprise that they chose to get married on Anglesey, one of the most picturesque places in the UK. Owain’s parents own a farm in Beaumaris with plenty of space for a marquee and amazing views over the sea, the perfect location for their reception.
Wedding photography on Anglesey
We started the day in Conwy at Lucy & Owain’s home where Lucy & her bridesmaids were getting ready. Nervous excitement was building as they had their makeup done before Lucy stepped into her beautiful dress.
Lucy’s Mum had recently been ordained as a Deacon so they chose to hold their wedding ceremony in the family church, St Cynbryds in Llanddulas. There’s always something extra special when a couple gets married somewhere that has a real meaning to them and their family. After the ceremony, we travelled to Anglesey, stopping briefly at Menai Bridge for some photos overlooking the bridge (a tradition for couples getting married on Anglesey). Then we travelled the short distance to the farm to meet their guests.
Boho and rustic weddings
Lucy and Owain had chosen a laid back, rustic theme for their wedding. The marquee was decorated with wooden favours, hessian accents, milk churns, and foliage on the tables. The real showstopper had to be the centre ceiling decoration, made with hundreds of paper cranes that Lucy had spent hours folding. Stunning. The look was simple but so effective.
The sun shone brightly, encouraging everyone outdoors for cocktails and photos. In the evening, Lucy, Owain and I explored the farm for the couples photos as the sun set. The stone barns and lanterns providing a great backdrop.
