I always get excited when a couple first tell me their wedding plans. Whatever their ideas I think it’s so important that it’s about just the two of them. Whether they choose a particular theme, or colours, or something totally different altogether. A Rugby themed wedding is something totally new to me and boy was it so much fun!

Georgi and John are both massively into rugby and both play for a team. With it being such a big part of their everyday lives, it totally made sense that it be part of their wedding day too.

Stradey Park Hotel Wedding

Georgi and John chose to get married in Stradey Park Hotel. It’s such a beautiful space with natural light pouring into the ceremony room. When we first chatted about their ideas at the wedding fayre we met at, they said as their wedding venue is so close to Parc Y Scarlets rugby stadium, they really wanted to incorporate it into their photos (I was doing a major happy dance inside). I’d shot a previous wedding at the football ground, The Liberty Stadium and absolutely loved it there. So I knew this wedding was right up my street.

Rugby Themed Wedding

This Winter wedding had such lovely touches of rugby throughout, from a rugby themed wedding cake to the guest book being a shirt to sign. Georgi and John also changed into their rugby boots when we got to Parc Y Scarlets (check out the shoe shots… I just had to do!) I love that Georgi and John although chose an alternative backdrop for their wedding photographs, they chose something that summed them up as a couple. Each couple is different and unique, some booking a venue close to the sea, or with beautiful green grounds. And as long as you choose the right venue for you as a couple, you’ll know that it’ll make the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs.
