Craig Y Nos Castle wedding photography

Saturday 18th January 2020 saw me in the Swansea area in South Wales to photograph the wedding of Briony and Thomas. 

The weather during this winter day was absolutely amazing: +7 degrees, clear sky, and no wind at all. They are probably quite a lucky couple to have such lovely weather in the middle of January, aren’t they?

Briony and Thomas choose Craig y Nos castle not only because it is an amazing venue surrounded by national parks, but also because of its nice history and connections to opera music. Craig y Nos Castle was once the estate of the opera diva Adelina Patti. 

Briony herself is very talented in singing and acting, she studied vocals. Before the evening party started she performed a lyric song for her husband. Her voice is so beautiful and strong and sounded so fantastically emotional, that she even did not need the cover music. 

Briony’s dress, veil-type cloak, headband, hairstyle all together were a part of her amazing look. And she definitely looked like a princess surrounded by medieval castle backgrounds, by the way not only I mentioned it.
