Llechwen Hall: Wedding venue in South Wales

Hilltop wedding venue offers stunning scenery

Views from Llechwen hall
Back in November the wedding fair at Llechwen Hall Hotel gave me a chance to meet the team and see their wedding venue facilities, while scouting good locations for a shoot.

Llechwen Hall hotel is well suited as a wedding venue. The hotel is set on a scenic hilltop above Pontypridd and overlooking the South Wales valleys where the views and backdrops are stunning. The drive up the access road is beautiful, a winding climb that has a magical quality to it (particularly if you do it in a classic car).

The wedding fair was held in late November when short daylight hours and rainy weather put a limit to our shoot. I was a bit pushed for time as we’d arranged the shoot at short notice so I got a couple of shots of the dress for Caru Brides of Caerphilly (who I was shooting for); and a couple of the car and flowers (kindly loaned by The Cottage Garden Florist, Nelson.

The Cottage Garden Florist (which is based nearby in Nelson) kindly loaned two bouquets for our shoot: here is the second of the two, an attractive arrangement of purple orchids:

With light drizzle making things a bit damp outside (and being November it was cold and getting dark by 3pm) we moved inside the hotel to get these shots:

A roaring fire in the lounge gave the room a cosy feel so we took the opportunity to pose our model in the fireside chairs.
