Claire & Jason Roderick 05-04-2015
The sun was beaming down, there was a cool breeze coming in from the Gower coastline and it was the second attempt for Claire and Jason getting married ! There was fun, laughter, tears, ice cream, hiccups, fireworks and a perfect day !
The first date was set back last year with tragic luck for couple and wedding venue, the stunning Oldwalls on the Gower coast. A fire cancelled the wedding that was nearly 2 years in the planning :(
Having seen the news on a fellow photographer friends Facebook page I quickly rang Claire to ask if she had heard anything about what I was going to tell her ? Instantly Claire thought this was a prank by 'Bestman' Sean (having met Sean, now I can see why the bride would think this :)
I wish I was ringing to prank the bride but unfortunately the news was true and all the hardwork and planning was for nothing, Oldwalls had a tragic accident and the main wedding section and bar area of the outstanding marquee had caught fire ! No one was hurt and the venue staff and fire service acted very quickly and professionally, but Claire and Jasons wedding was off..
After months of more planning, working with the venue it finally happened..
It was a pleasure to be able to finally capture the wedding day, family and friends were unreal and made me feel like I was one of the family. I had met father of the bride, Doug James 9 months ago to record a very funny music video he wanted played on the day.
Big shout-out to best man Sean for being my righthand man on the day GREAT JOB mate, thank you. The Venue Oldwalls Gower, Swansea, if you have not been to look around make sure you do. One of the best wedding venues in Wales if not UK ! The staff, location, environment, food is out of this world. Also to the Bride and Groom :). You were patient & hilarious with some of your jokes, pranks and laughter (Claire I really thought I was at my first wedding where the Bride was not going to say.. 'I DO' !!!! heart in mouth moment RIGHT THERE ! I hope Jason was in on it, poor boy :)
And so another wedding in the safe hand of Clixx Photography, thanks for the company KM Videography , Coverland , Bernards ice-cream , Ultrabooth and Juggle Struck Thank you all, lovely meeting everyone.. :)
