Court Colman Manor
These two chose to marry in the grand Court Colman Manor. They didn’t need to look anywhere else, they knew right away this venue was the one for them. The manor is a gorgeous country house nestled at the bottom of the Garw Valley in South Wales.
Danielle and Richard matched their colour theme to the ceremony room in Court Colman perfectly! The blush pink chair bows looked beautiful against the pink decor.
The pair met almost ten years ago in a ‘very terrible nightclub’ (Danielle’s words not mine!) and have got two adorable young children, Abigail and Ben who both played a big part in the wedding day. Abi was the sweetest flower girl and Ben the youngest of the Groomsmen!
Richard proposed by the gorgeous beaches of Southerndown, overlooking the cliffs. He got down on one knee and with the children in the pram, asked Danielle to be with him forever. “Of course I cried!”
The girls had their hair and make-up done in the morning. Abi was enjoying the attention and Danielle’s nerves were starting to appear.
They got to Court Colman and unbeknown to him, Danielle’s dad stopped the car right outside the windows which looked directly into the ceremony room! Luckily, he moved the car quickly and we had told Richard to face away from the windows just in case. Abi and Ben walked down the aisle and Abi stayed cuddled up with her dad throughout the ceremony which was adorable.
Throughout the afternoon and into the evening, the stag party were carrying on the drinking games from the stag do whilst the rugby was on in the background. I stole the Jones’ away for their couple portraits around the grounds of Court Colman and got them back in time for the caricature to draw them!
The newlyweds had their first dance to Perfect by Matt Johnson by themselves. Half way through they invited the children up to dance with them too. “My favourite part of the wedding day was our first dance when all our loved ones were there for us, watching on, they all started singing along to our song.”
Despite the November weather, these two braved the rain outside to get some pretty cool rain photos in the evening!
Thank you so much for having myself and Sheetal at your wedding, it was a total pleasure!
