For an engagement session I always suggest trying somewhere you can’t get to on your wedding day. Rhian and Dafydd are getting married in Mid Wales (this weekend!!). So they chose somewhere completely different and decided upon Three Cliffs Bay for their Gower engagement session.
I have to say I’m a sucker for the Gower. Living in Cardiff but growing up in Swansea, I don’t need much of an excuse to drive through the Gower roads. And what better excuse than a wedding or an engagement shoot.
This warm May evening was the first time I properly met Dafydd and I’d only briefly met Rhian at a previous wedding fayre. We walked along the cliff tops and chatted getting to know each other. They told me all about themselves and their wedding day plans.
Relaxed engagment sessions are my style. They’re a way for a couple to see how I work and realise that it’s not stressful at all. It’s a great way to see each other (or meet for the first time!). It’s just me capturing fun, you both giggling and being silly together. As I’m sure you can see Dafydd and Rhian were natural at it.
After shooting with them both, I’m now even more excited for the weekend and seeing these two become husband and wife. It’ll be my first wedding at Lake Country House Hotel. I visited this same venue with my best friend two years ago and back then we both said how amazing this venue would be to shoot at.
