RandellJohnPhotography versus Uncle Bob
I’ve had to cope with my fair share of iPad toting guests while photographing weddings, and unfortunately had to remind a few guests that they are there to enjoy the wedding and not stand in as an uninvited second photographer, but the woman in this video takes the biscuit.
Please don’t be that annoying person at the next wedding you attend, switch off your phone, put your camera away and just enjoy the day.
It’s why the bride and groom invited you, and paid a professional to take the photographs.
I had the pleasure of photographing Viv and Claire’s wedding last weekend at Llansaintfraidd Church, near Aberkenfig, on what turned out to be one of the warmest day’s so far this spring.
The day started at Soul Haircutters Salon, in Bridgend town, where I met Claire and her bridesmaids for an impromptu shoot at nine in the morning.
The Coed-Y-Mwstwr Hotel was an ideal venue for Nicola and Gez’s wedding.
April 19th 2014 is a day I shall remember for a very long time indeed, not just because it was such a glorious spring day, but because of the wonderful memories I’ll have of photographing this fantastic couple.
Randell John Photography – Covers Local Business Event.
I had a great afternoon photographing the official opening of Llangynwyd’s Village Hall.
Originally built-in the late 1800’s, over the past decades the building fell into disrepair after its previous owner an artist passed away.
It was eventually bought by the council four years ago, and with the help of a local fundraising and a government grant from the Bridgend County Borough Councils, Rural Development Department, the hall has been restored to its former glory.

I’m publishing this post with the permission of the bride and groom concerned, and was actively encouraged to do so by them.
I thought long and hard before I wrote this very long post, but decided to go ahead with the express idea of educating anyone who’s getting married, and specifically to warn them about the inherent pitfalls of choosing a wedding photographer based on price alone.
Debs, Chico and I just wanted to wish each and everyone one of you a very happy and peaceful 2014.
Thanks to everyone who has supported me in 2013, and helped me carry on living my dream.
We hope that all your wishes come true in 2014, and that you, your family and loved ones, remain healthy and happy.
Have a great time tonight everyone. xxx
You may have heard this saying before.
I know from bitter experience that this statement is unfortunately true. I’ve had more than my fair share of the dreaded blue screen, and each time it’s happened, I had that same gut wrenching feeling, as I sat there wondering if I’ll be able to get my precious data back.
