Lee + Alastair’s Civil Partnership @ Bedwelty House and Park, Tredegar

Lee and Alastair had a very colour coordinated, well designed and planned civil partner at Bedwelty House in Tredegar. To give you an example of how well colour coordinated it was the Mercedes bus they arrived in was matching in colour to the ‘groomsmaids’ dresses and flowers. I only wish I had half as good a dress sense as these guys, the suits, shirts, bow ties and those shoes they wore will all soon be making an appearance in my wardrobe as soon as I find out where they got them from.

Even though it was their day Lee and Alastair wanted to make the day special and memorable for all their guests and went to some means to do so. At the venue they had a male voice choir singing as the guests arrived, a favourite of mine that they belted out was U2’s With or without you. After doing some great portrait shots in the grounds we drove to the wedding breakfast venue – The Church Inn, Mynyddislwyn high up in the hills. As you’ll be able to tell a lot of thought and effort went into the decoration and details of the venue. I personally loved the venue as it provided such an intimate setting for the guests who were close friends and family. Unconventionally for the wedding breakfast the guests could order whatever meal they wanted from the menu and generously being treated to a meal I can say the food was absolutely gorgeous! Other special details were the cake, I won’t ruin the surprise you’ll have to scroll down and have a look and the champagne coup glasses, that were very much in fashion in the 30’s and 60’s. Lee and Alastair could only find them in batches of 4 or 6 at a time, so took quite some time to get enough for the wedding party. Thanks to L+A for having me and to all their friends and family for making me feel so welcome Tx
