Penbedw Yurt - Sian & Rich

I love it when weddings are a little bit different. Sian & Rich's wedding was a prime example - the structure was different and not all traditions were necessarily followed. They opted for a festival theme on the grounds of Penbedw Estate and they did an incredible job. Keep scrolling through for some inspiration.

The day began with Sian, her family and the bridal party at the nearby Old Mill Cottages, a 2 minute drive away from Penbedw. I've known Sian and her family for decades so felt extremely comfortable with the many familiar faces. With Champagne flowing, it made for a great atmosphere. A few formal photographs later and It was time to head to Penbedw Estate to meet Rich and the Groomsmen.

The venue looked amazing. The Yurt was the main focal point which was to be used for the evening reception and a place for guests to eat, whilst the nearby Stretch tent (by Peak Marquee Hire) was to be used for the ceremony as well as live music from the many acts that Sian & Rich had scheduled in over the course of the day. A small marquee and tent were used for kids to play and one for the Silent Disco to take place later in the evening. Around the edge of the grounds, there were dozens of tents for guests to stay the night.

Whilst Rich and the guests took their positions for the ceremony, Sian arrived with her Dad and was dropped off at the nearby woodland before a scenic walk through with her sons and bridesmaids, eventually arriving at the yurt. The ceremony could commence!

We were treated to our first bit of live music during the ceremony, with Mared & Leah, who sang during the signing of the register, accompanied by Alaw Llwyd Owen on piano. Sian & Rich were married in front of an arch made from pipes, which was expertly created by Rich who is a plumber by trade. This was decorated by the amazingly talented Sioned Edwards of Pontytwr.

Whilst I set up the main group shot of all of the guests, Jacob Elwy was setting up in the stretch tent for his first of two sets. The festival wedding was now underway - Whilst he played, guests mingled and enjoyed drinks, whilst being served with street food prepared and cooked by Outside Gourmet Catering. I, in the meantime went for a stroll with Sian & Rich for a couples shoot utilising the amazing scenery and the ancient iconic oak tree. The next couple of hours consisted of more live music from Daniel Lloyd a Mr Pinc, which followed the speeches. Food was continually served throughout the day, to avoid a formal sit down meal and was washed down with lots of Champagne and booze.

Into the evening and even more guests had arrived. By now we had two DJ sets underway, so some guests took shelter from the rain under the stretch tent near to the bar, whilst others sat inside eating cakes and cheese awaiting yet more entertainment. Following Sian & Rich's first dance, the excellent Wee Bag Band played into the night - they were so much entertainment - they pretty much summed up what Sian & Rich hoped to achieve Lots of love, fun and laughter. It was an honour to be a part of.

I’d like to wish Sian & Rich a lifetime of happiness. Congratulations to you both and thanks so much for booking Nathan Roberts Photography to capture your special day. I had a lovely day celebrating and capturing your day with wonderful family and friends.
