What a way to get back into the blogging game with this amazing Carreglwyd Anglesey Wedding. We got very excited chatting to Catrin and Chris on the phone and discussing what they had planned for their wedding on the beautiful Welsh island of Anglesey.
“We are having a hippie wedding in Anglesey” was the start to the conversation. We knew right then that this was going to be something special. Catrin and Chris actually live in Newcastle but wanted to have their wedding where Catrin’s Mum Llinos grew up.
We met them both at our local pub couple of months before their big day and hit it off instantly.
On the day of the wedding we met Catrin and the bridal party at a holiday home they were staying in on Anglesey not too far away from Carreglwyd where they would be having their wedding. We then made our way to the venue to meet Chris and the wedding guests. As we walked around the corner were greeted by the most colourful array of people. They got married with an awesome ceremony in the boathouse next to the lake. A perfect setting.
After a few drinks everybody made their way to the huge tent for food and speeches. The three best men moved everybody into the stables for an hilarious speech that they had filmed earlier and played on a large projector screen. Everybody was in fits of laughter.
And then it was time for the party, and oh my what a party this was. The awesome Reet Good Craic covered Fleetwood Mac’s album Rumours. They really did get everybody in a party mood, and then 5 different DJ’s playing one of the best sets I have ever heard at a wedding, Music I have loved forever. I think you can tell how good the party was with the amount of photos I have included in this blog post.
Carreglwyd Anglesey Wedding
Such a great, unique venue for a wedding. The stable is a Grade II listed building that is a short walk down the lawn to the beautiful lake and woodland. They had hay-bails on the lawn and a big swing that give this wedding a very relaxed “hippie” feel. It has a campsite too that is very close to the sea. We look forward to shooting here again very soon.
