Fairyhill Luxury Wedding | Laura & Iestyn

The couple planned for a classic and vintage luxury wedding at Fairyhill, it certainly was all of that and more. One of the wedding cars breaking down ahead of the church arrival, leading the groom to think that the bride really wasn’t turning up. Scroll on to see why this was one of my favourite weddings to photograph recently.


Laura & Iestyn’s Fairyhill luxury wedding in September was quite the day. Jam packed and full of excitement and joy. Along with stress ahead of the ceremony where just as the bride was about to leave, they realised the main wedding car had broken down on the motorway. It usually would be ok, except the journey was 20 minutes from the church. With an extra round trip and the groom convinced the bride, Laura was turning up, the ceremony proceeded just under an hour late. Thankfully the vicar being the brides brother, he didn’t mind. No matter how perfectly a day can be scheduled, unforeseen circumstances such as this can throw it all out of the window!

Ahead of arriving to their wedding celebrations and reception in the Gower, we took the opportunity to head to a secret spot overlooking the Gower estuary for their incredible portraits for a brief moment, making sure we arrived soon after the last guest arrived. They were all awaiting the arrival with a big cheer and celebration. The grounds at Fairyhill are made up of lush dense woodland, an immaculately kept lawn and lake; A perfect place to host a handful of group photos of the bridal party with a beautiful backdrop. The secret is that it’s hard to take a bad photo at the venue since its revival by the Oldwalls Collection several years ago.


As you’ll see below, they had quite the guest list and fantastic energy during their speeches, they certainly brought their moves to the dance floor too. Its weddings like this do you understand the true meaning of community and closely nurtured relationships. Weddings highlight the raw emotions and joy for one another and I’m glad I was there to document that all for them as a Fairyhill wedding photographer.
