I short while ago I had the absolute pleasure of working with Kody and Nicky May on their beautiful wedding day. The day began with bridal preparations and a fantastic view from the Marriot Hotel over the city of Cardiff. Kody’s beautiful dress (Eva Ashley) looked perfect with the cityscape backdrop and I couldn’t resist taking a few shots. There was an emotional exchange of gifts in the room and there were a few happy tears.
The ceremony was beautiful and the couple’s son, Kian, kept us all entertained with his strut down the aisle, he was also the ring bearer and did his job very well! The Ceremony was concluded with signing by Kody’s talented sister and bridesmaid Taya.
After a few group shots at the hotel it was on to Alexandra Gardens for photos of the bride and groom and their immediate family. Nicky’s dad Roger had been unwell in the weeks before the wedding and was determined to make it to see his son’s special day. The photos taken here are all the more to be cherished as Roger sadly passed away only a few days after the wedding. It was a pleasure to meet him and he was obviously very proud of his Nicky and his family.
After our time in the memorial gardens we returned to the Hotel for a wonderful wedding breakfast (I was spoiled at this wedding) and eventually the evening celebrations. Nicky decided to add a little surprise to the first dance music but to Kody’s relief, Baby Shark was quickly stopped and Kody’s first choice Amazed was played. Finally, Kody took to the floor for an emotional dance with her dad. The day was perfect and I was delighted to have been a part of it. Can we do it all again please?
