We take a quick look at a handful of teaser photos from Emma and James wedding. They held their wedding at St. Fagans Church and Trecynon with the wedding reception in Cottrell Park Golf Resort.
Emma and James have been together for 5 years, and along with their 3 children live within a stone’s throw of the church they tied the knot in.
Phillip Warren from Phillip Warren Photography joined James on the morning getting ready at his parents’ house. Phillip says a massive thanks has to go to James’ mother who whipped up an excellent bacon sandwich for him upon arrival! Top work.
James, along with his dad and brother had pretty sharp suits from Dyfyd Menswear, which he ended up doing the ties and buttonholes. They all left early so Phillip could join Emma and the bridesmaids getting ready while they made their way to the church to meet the guests.
Emma got ready with her bridesmaids at the couples home, taking over the entire living room. With the three bridesmaids, hair and makeup artist and her mother, there wasn’t much space left!
The Church was only a short walk from the home, which was great as the weather wasn’t the best.
The church was so tucked out of the way you would never know it was there unless you flew a drone overhead. That is not to say it was a small church in the least, its a lovely sized place of worship that was half full of guests. The flower girls walked in first followed by the bridesmaids and the emotion was high already. Emma entered with her Dad and like every groom, breaking tradition by looking at his bride walking down the aisle. After the ceremony, everyone hopped onto the bus to make the journey to Cottrell Park Golf Course marquee.
The gorgeous Cottrell Park Golf Resort has its own permanent marquee structure. The bar, reception and dance floor are separated by draped curtains. The floor in the marquee is all entirely fake grass, which is a pretty cool idea. Really suits certain themes of weddings. During a break in the weather, they grabbed some group shots in front of the golf course. Sadly they could not get out and roam the well-kept grounds to get some photos, so they had to get creative. Enter the corridor between the clubhouse and the marquee. Phillip had seen a few photographers using this corridor but, like many weddings he photographs, he likes to come up with his own version which we think he achieved. He finished in style with his customary shots at the bar before the dancefloor got a little crazy.
