Winter Wedding at The Great House Laleston
I had a wonderful afternoon photographing Helen and Phil’s Winter Wedding at The Great House Laleston.
Helen and Phil chose The Great House in Laleston, Nr Bridgend to host their intimate ceremony and reception, and it’s an ideal location for such a wedding.
The hotel is sumptuously decorated with large fireplaces and beamed ceilings, creating a warm and sensual environment, which wraps around visitors, exuding warmth and comfort.
The furniture is wonderfully traditional, deep buttoned leather Chesterfield sofas, and high back Queen Ann chairs are dotted around the cozy lounge.
I wish I’d had time to sit in a sofa next to the open fireplace and relax with a drink, but photographing weddings don’t usually allow time for such luxury.
The gardens are immaculately kept, and there’s even a gazebo permanently erected on a large wooden decking area at the bottom of the garden, ideal for shade on hot summer days, or somewhere to quickly shelter should rain fall suddenly during your wedding.
The staff at the hotel are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble for them. I always find that the best hotels go out of their way to help me when I arrive before the wedding begins.
Yesterday was no exception, I was given a guided tour of the hotel by the manager, and she was more than happy to open the gazebo and move some furniture for me, to make a little extra room, should I need to use the facility later in the day.
Helen and Phil’s wedding was a short working day for me, and thanks to them and their guests for being so co-operative. I managed to cram in a lot of photography in the three hours I was with them.
In fact I was a little bit sad leaving them, as they were going into their wedding breakfast;
The food smelled delicious.
