Wonderful Welsh Wedding at The Orangery Margam Park, West Wales
The excitement was palpable when we arrived for this Wonderful Welsh Wedding at The Orangery Margam Park, West Wales. Sardis Chapel in Waunarlwydd was already bustling with family, guests and excited well wishers. We knew that we were in for a proper Welsh village wedding and we were not disappointed. The Chapel looked a picture with huge lavender bushes lining the entrance, fabulous flowers adorning the door way and a flower garland above the pulpit. Thanks to Ruth Milton-Jones for making the scene so pretty with her inspired flower arrangements. I’ve lost count of how many button holes I’ve put on this year already, this group really needed some help!!
Lowri and Simon are obviously a much loved couple and the crowds outside the Chapel almost outnumbered the congregation inside! Jeffrey Morgan, the Minister delivered a very personal wedding ceremony and the atmosphere inside that little Welsh Chapel was memorable.
The magnificent Orangery at Margam Park was the setting for the reception and some really gorgeous photographs. We particularly loved Lowri’s magnificent hairstyle…
Then there was the cake, what can we say, it looked and tasted divine. Possibly the most beautiful cake we have seen in a while. Yes, finally we got to take some cake home and it was to die for, I can see where the name comes from – Heavenly Cakes – of Llandeilo.
