Llangollen wedding for Jon & Katie....and a VW

Last week Wales came to us & this week we went to Wales, to the beautiful town of Llangollen. This was like going back 100 years driving past the old rail station with the steam trains getting ready to leave crossing the stream to get to the church that sits right on the riverbank. Now the day didn’t get off to the best of starts, shall we say there was a lot of welsh mist (pouring rain) & Jon had spent many painstaking days on restoring a vintage VW split screen camper but as we saw him pushing into the car park & not best pleased we sensed a problem. During a gap in the rain Katie, Megan & the bridesmaids arrived in a second VW Camper & a very personal & emotional ceremony followed. Now the camper was a surprise for Katie but unknown to Jon during the ceremony the lads had managed to fix & get going Jons Camper & arrived with cheers at the church, and bang on queue out came the sun.
We had previously found the most spectacular location for the photos, Valle Crucis Abbey near to Llangollen this was amazing, & in the warm sunshine I really, REALLY, got carried away it was just one of those weddings, don’t ask why, it could be the location, the couple, the fact that instead of traditional wedding flowers there were herbs & old English flowers, or just that for ages I had watched, with a little envy, our good friends Andy & Agnieszka Younger from Younger Photography in Plymouth shoot these fantastic, photogenic campers & secretly I always wanted to, & now I have.

Thanks To Jon & Katie on Honeymoon in a beautiful VW Camper, somewhere…..

Fantastic, unique day, we loved being involved and meeting all of Kate & Jon's lovely friends and family.

Kate is one of my dearest friends and I'm devastated I missed her special day. Thanks for getting these photos on so I can have a look at the Collins family, the photos are brilliant and Kate, Jon and Megan look amazing. Lorna x
