Pencoed House Estate Cardiff. Wedding of Ffion and Simon


Ffion and Simon got married at Pencoed House Estate, which is a country house in Cardiff with stunning grounds and stone buildings. Described as a perfect fairytale venue for the most important occasion of your lives. Plenty of places to photograph. It was a gorgeous summers day, and the sun shone all day long!

Pencoed House Estate is set in thirty six acres of breathtaking grounds. Offering an idyllic and serene setting in the heart of the South Wales countryside. It's also really peaceful and secluded, and is one of the nicest places to get married in the Cardiff area. The venue offers onsite parking so guests don’t have to walk – and there so many incredible backdrops that are perfect for photos. See the link below for website information.

Ffion wore a classic white dress and Simon wore a snazzy kilt, and they both looked really incredible for their wedding day.

The pink and white petals thrown onto the couple as they left the hall was a great photograph opportunity that was too good to miss. Biodegradable too.

The couple had drinks and canapés in the afternoon, and a live band in the evening. The music was fantastic.

They both had fun cutting the cake that was brought out of the main hall into the garden for them.

For dinner they had what I call "proper wedding food", washed down with some cocktails and fine wine. The first dance was to their favourite song. They finished off the evening with a ‘last dance’ and some then more dancing.

Time to relax

The couple got in touch with me, and their enquiry was so personal. They said they wanted a photographer who would be like a guest, and I loved that they were so relaxed. I photographed Simon's Brother's wedding a few years earlier, so I was already familiar with Simons family. They were also aware of my photography style which made it a lot easier for me during the day.

The wedding was also featured in the South Wales Wedding Magazine with a four page editorial. Some of the wedding images were also featured in another magazine. The Wedding Coordinator Magazine. Who later named me as wedding photographer of the year.
