St Donats Arts Centre Wedding – Heritage Coast Vale of Glamorgan

Becky had helped to plan her sister Samantha’s St Donats Arts Centre wedding back in 2015. She told me she created her ideal dream wedding for her Sister and now wanted the same for herself! She booked the same Church, the same Venue and the same photographers too!!

It’s always lovely to already have a family connection before a wedding. It was so nice for Martin to meet up with her family again.

It wasn’t the smoothest of starts to our day, I fell and fractured my back as Martin was due to leave home to photograph Becky & Paul’s Wedding!! Even though Martin was worried about me, his true professionalism carried him through and he was able to capture these amazing photos. What a wonderful wedding at the beautiful 12th century St John the Baptist Church in Llanblethian near Cowbridge followed by a reception at the fabulous St Donats Arts Centre. Becky looked simply amazing in her Justin Alexander dress from High Society Bridal in Cowbridge.

St Donats Arts Centre is a lovely sunlit open space, looking out over the amazing grounds of St Donats Castle. Access is allowed to the gardens and the slipway down to the sea for so many varied photo locations. The bonus for me is the attached stone barn which makes a fantastic party space for the evening.

Thanks Becky & Paul for your thoughtful cards too. It looks like you had the perfect wedding day and those images down on the slipway and in the gardens are simply gorgeous. Here is a slideshow of our favourites from Becky and Paul’s day:
