A BEAUTIFUL CHIC AND UNIQUE WELSH WEDDING
BROGAN AND MATTHEW’S WEDDING AT THE KINMEL HOTEL
From the moment I met Brogan and Matthew, I knew they’d make the perfect clients. They wanted wedding photography that would allow them to be true to themselves whilst enjoying their wedding at The Kinmel Hotel.
Their fantastic style and wonderful personalities guaranteed a wow factor wedding. The wedding itself was one big party from start to finish – in fact; I think I enjoyed it as much as their guests did!
Here is their story…
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT THE KINMEL HOTEL
After much research, Brogan and Matthew decided on the location for their wedding. They planned to tie the knot at St Thomas’ Church in Rhyl and celebrate their marriage at The Kinmel Hotel & Spa in Abergele. “We knew we’d chosen the right place as we’d celebrated a lot of family occasions there in the past,” explains Brogan. “It had everything we needed for a perfect day.”
Choosing the right photographer and videographer was also high on the couple’s list of priorities. “We were more than happy to pay the extra money for someone amazing because it’s the photos and video that store all those precious memories,” says Brogan. “We were lucky enough to find out about Wes through a family friend and he certainly didn’t disappoint,” she adds. “We loved his natural style and how he captured each moment as it happened.”
RONALD JOYCE WEDDING GOWN
When it came to their attire, Brogan and Matthew opted for classic outfits to reflect their stylish wedding and personalities. There was no doubt in Brogan’s mind as to her perfect gown – even though it was completely opposite to what she’d expected. “I thought I’d go for a big dress but ended up choosing a slim Ronald Joyce gown, which featured a cowl back and a detailed bodice,” explains Brogan. “My mum, nan and myself all cried when we saw it – we just knew it was ‘the one’,” she smiles.
Matthew opted for something unique and bright. His multi-toned bright blue suit, from Next, was perfect for the couple’s day and sure to reflect their unique and cool style. “He looked very handsome – I was really happy with his choice,” smiles Brogan.
WEDDING DÉCOR AT THE KINMEL HOTEL
In keeping with the venue and the couple’s classic style, Brogan and Matthew opted for simple yet beautiful wedding décor. “We wanted to keep it classy, sleek and cool – so we kept everything quite minimal where we could,” says Brogan. Avoiding too much colour, the pair styled The Kinmel Hotel & Spa with a chic colour palette of silvers, whites and subtle greens. The couple were also keen to add their own personal touch to the venue. “We didn’t really want to do anything that anyone had done before – whether it was the music or the flowers,” explains Brogan.
ST THOMAS CHURCH RHYL
Brogan and Matthew’s spring wedding took place at St Thomas’ Church in Rhyl. Their traditional ceremony also featured a barbershop quartet – setting the tone for the couple’s laid back and unique wedding day. “They were so good and really got the crowd going,” smiles Brogan.
With the formalities over, the couple and their wedding guests went on to celebrate at The Kinmel Hotel & Spa. They began their party with reception drinks including Corona and lime and Prosecco and party-pleasing tunes from the barbershop quartet. “They sang songs by artists like Shaggy and R Kelly – which everyone loved!” laughs Brogan. “We also fed guests with canapés and candy floss.”
A FUN FILLED WEDDING BREAKFAST
The wedding breakfast was one big party – exactly what the pair wanted. “My mum and dad walked into Mr Brightside, by The Killers; the bridesmaids came into the Spice Girls and the groomsmen came into Hot Chocolate’s You Sexy Thing,” laughs Brogan. “Matthew and I followed, walking into Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch. We even decided to do our first dance before the meal, inviting everyone up to dance. After that, the dance floor was never empty!”
Wedding day top tip:
“Your wedding can be as big or as small as you want it to be. It’s your day, you can’t please everyone so make sure your decisions reflect what you and your future husband want.” – Brogan
