Family wedding at Renew Church & chilled out after party at Bear Coffee.


Family wedding at Renew Church & chilled out after party at Bear Coffee.

Terran & Angharad planned the most amazing day for themselves, their gorgeous girls, their closest friends and much loved immediate family. Read on for the low down.

Just a few weeks before the wedding I got together with them and captured some gorgeous images of the two of them with their girls, taking it easy at the local park. This was a great opportunity to talk through their plans and meet their girls and have a giggle with them.

Fast forward to the day of the wedding and it was a little on the damp side!! Friends and family were met in the foyer by the Groom Terran and his Best Man Craig before taking their seats ready for the ceremony to commence. Many of the guests know the family through their links with the Church that they attend.

Before long it was time for the bridal party to arrive.

Zoe arrived first with the children, then shortly after Angharad arrived with her brothers Dom and Will. She had chosen her Crystal dress from the Bridal Factory in Burton and Hannah Hughes created a stunning up-do with the bride's hair. Angharad did her own make-up and one of her best friends Lesley Dunn made the wedding flowers. A proper team effort!

Renew Church in Uttoxeter has a fantastic husband and wife team at its helm! Matt conducted the ceremony whilst Becky helped with the official aspects of signing the register. It was clear to see that Matt & Becky were incredibly happy to perform this ceremony for their friends Angharad and Terran.

Tea, cake and photographs followed and before long we were off to Bear Coffee for the after party. Before this though Caroline (my lovely second shooter for the day) and I ventured upstairs into the old cinema part of the building to scout out the perfect location for something a bit wow. I love it when a couple are up for a crazy idea or two!

Bear was the perfect setting for this couples after party, with it’s chilled out vibe, cosy seating areas and central location.

Terran had catered for the after party and when I say catered that does it a serious injustice!! The food was amazeballs!! Teach me your ways Terran, I need to know how to recreate that watermelon and feta dish.

I have two words for you ………. BREAD WALL!! You’re welcome.

Friends from Church provided a fantastic selection of tunes to keep people dancing, taking requests as they went along. It truly was a day filled with love and laughter.
