Jessica and Matthew were married at St Cadoc's Church, Caerleon on a glorious summer's day in August. A true celebration where family was at the heart of everything, everyone attending this wedding had a blast.
From start to finish the stunning bride did not stop smiling. The bridal preparations took place at the bride's mum's house along with her seven bridesmaids, three flower girls and two page boys. Wearing a gorgeous Christina Wu dress from Usk's luxury wedding dress boutique Bridal Lane, Jess looked every inch the Beautiful Bride. As her massive bridal party were ready to make their way to the venue, Jess was delighted to be surprised with her taxi to the venue - a red double decker bus!
The ceremony was beautiful and the lych gate at the end of the path was the perfect location for *that* confetti shot. As guests made their way to the next venue - The Cwrt Bleddyn Hotel in Usk, the bridal party boarded the bus.
Like most grooms, Matt was a little nervous about the couple portraits, but he soon relaxed and did a great job. Then on to the heartfelt speeches and the cutting of the cake (wow, what an epic cake!).
I left the newlyweds to dance into the evening, still smiling, as was everyone who knew them. Congratulations Jess & Matt, you are a wonderful couple and a delight to be around.
