Best wedding photographs – 2021 | South Wales wedding photographers

The most beautiful wedding photos I captured in 2021 

What a year it was… Not very promising from the beginning. Uncertainty, restrictions, heartbreaking decisions to postpone the big day. 

As a wedding photographer and videographer we managed to reschedule most of our weddings, but also had some cancellations. (As I already mentioned, we never accept more than 1 booking for the same date. For some wedding photographers, it’s a normal practice: they accept 2-3 bookings for a certain date and then send a cheaper associate to cover those). So we had to return the deposit to some couples. Basically, the business income flow looked like – 5 deposits in, 2 deposits out.

But as a small wedding business, we are happy we survived the worst of the pandemic (2020-2021).

The second half of the year was so busy! Every single weekend I was somewhere admiring people in love and their I do’s. I visited so many new venues in Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Bristol, Swansea. And I returned to the venues I had already shot at in South Wales.

To name just a few: Oxwich bay hotel, Hilton Puckrup Hall, Hensol castle, Llechwen hall hotel, Coed-Y-Mwstwr Hotel, Grittleton House, Court Colman Manor, Rhondda heritage park hotel, Pittville Pump Room, Brinsop court, Manor Parc Hotel. What a list of gorgeous wedding venues! They’re all so different, but all equally beautiful and amazing places to get married to the love of your life.

In 2021 I had captured some alternative weddings, marquee weddings, farm weddings, the reception that took place in a marquee on family farmland, community hall weddings, religious ceremonies, reception held outdoors at parents’ home garden, and a pub wedding.

Those who keep reading my wedding blog, know that my style is relaxed visual storytelling… and that I always post around 150-200 documentary photos from each wedding on my blog.  So I will try my best to limit the number of my favourite wedding photographs of the year 2021.

It could easily be 1000+ of best photos, but I’ll limit the number to around 100 photos.
