Novotel Cardiff City Centre- South Wales Wedding
It was a beautiful sunny April morning on Rhian and Jonathan’s Novotel Cardiff City Centre wedding.
The Novotel Cardiff is a really quirky venue. It’s industrial and modern decor really sets it apart from other wedding venues around South Wales.
These guys met in their local gym 15 years ago, got talking and the rest is history. “Jonathan was going to circuit classes with friends from his local rugby team and we all got chatting over the weeks. I didn’t really think anything of it until Jonathan started turning up in my other classes including fit ball! Perseverance definitely got the girl.”
Jonathan actually proposed many years ago but they never got around to setting a date: “The first time he asked me, I was pregnant with our first son and Jonathan just in passing said that we should get married now. But life took over and we just never pinned down a place or a venue and time just flew by. In the meantime I lost three engagement rings and Jonathan swore he wouldn’t buy me a fourth! Then on Christmas day 2016, Jonathan got down on one knee and asked me to marry him with my gift as a forth engagement ring. This time he was determined that we would pick a date and venue and this time we finally did put us first!”
The Wedding Day:
Rhian had her best friends and their children as bridesmaids and flower girls. The girls wore beautiful white and silver bridesmaids dresses with added chain detailing on the back.
The beautiful ceremony almost went without a hitch, until Jonathan dropped Rhian’s wedding ring on the floor just before he was about to put it on her finger!
We managed to steal some time away to wander the streets around the venue and stumbled upon some cool architecture to use for their couple photographs- makes a change from all the greenery I’m used to!
The afternoon was full of magician performances, string quartet music and lots of laughter before the band started in the evening.
They danced to Adele to start off the crazy party of the evening with The Decades wedding band rocking the dance floor!
Thank you so much for having me at your Novotel Cardiff wedding!
