Portmeirion; A pastel coloured, Portofino inspired village in north west Wales. Loved by tourists, home to world famous pottery, location of the music Festival No6, backdrop of surreal 60’s spy drama The Prisoner, and more recently, the setting for the spring wedding of Sarah & Jamie.
So, Portmeirion is a quirky coastal village in Wales famous for its Italian inspired painted buildings. Sarah and Jamie held their ceremony in the historic Hercules Hall, which is right in the heart of the village. Portmeirion means a lot to the two of them and was their first (only!) choice of location. This was my first time photographing a wedding here and I’ve got to say I loved every minute!!
They got ready at Castell Deudraeth which is at the entrance to the village, overlooking the estuary. I then jumped in a minibus with the boys to head down the hill to Hercules Hall. Sarah got a lift via a golf buggy! After the ceremony the guests had time to indulge in a bit of liquid refreshment while the three of us took advantage of some local knowledge by our driver to find some beautiful spots for photographs.
“Absolutely out of this world Matt! We can’t stop looking at our gallery. You have taken such beautiful photographs and captured our day perfectly.“
