Sabrina & Laurie soak up the Golden Hour at Gellifawr Woodland Retreat

Sabrina and Laurie's wedding was my first of 2022. It took place at the stunning Gellifawr Woodland Retreat, which is nestled in the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside. It was also my first time shooting this venue, which is always exciting. Gellifawr is idyllic, it boasts a patch of woodland that has been strung with festoon lights, a lake in the grounds and a brand new ceremony room that is elegant and modern.


I knew Sabrina and Laurie were going to absolutely slay their wedding portraits after we did their pre-wedding shoot at the beach. I just love when a couple is eager to get amazing romantic portraits! This pair were made for each other. The spark between them was incredible to witness. We had the most glorious golden hour session and the shots were to die for!


Their little boy Reggie was another star of the day. He had a matching kilt to his Daddy and provided me endless opportunities to take the cutest photos of him!


We also had fun with the guests after the reception by heading outside to surround the couple with sparklers (at a safe distance!), which always makes for the most magical photos.
