I think this is one of the most incredible venues I've EVER seen. The Druidstone in Pembrokeshire looks like an amazing place to have your lunch, let alone your whole wedding day. I've always wanted to visit this stretch of stunning Welsh coastline and this beautiful celebration has just convinced me that I NEED to make this happen ASAP. Betsy and Bob look completely relaxed and happy, which just shows that their wedding day was a true reflection of them. I love that their dogs came along for the ride too, along with their adorable little boy Bear. Images come from the lovely O&C Photography who always shoot weddings in a way that truly captures how heartfelt they are. Can you tell I really love this wedding?! It's the sea, it gets me every time...

The Photography

Betsy The Bride: We could not have been any luckier with O&C Photography, the easiest people to work with in the world! Complete pros yet such a wonderful friendly service from them! We ended our day feeling as though we had gained friends, and their finished product...WOW.

The Bride

My dress was by Justin Alexander (style8779) bought from Emma Phillips Bridal Studio. Jess and the rest of the team made the whole process so fun and easy! I wore earrings that will forever hold a huge place in my heart as they were uniquely made by a dear school friend Georgia Tilley of Melyn Jewellery.

The Flowers

Linda runs the most wonderful company providing the most beautiful flowers around which are almost completely sourced from her own meadows.

The Venue

Venue - The Druidstone Hotel. A completely unique, completely gob smacking venue with great importance to us. Beth and the team made every step of planning a complete breeze. It was a joy to have married in such a fantastic, laid back, wonderful spot! Nothing was too much trouble for this family run hotel. Our food here consisted of a Spanish feast and my it did not disappoint, every plate was cleared! Our cake was made by a friend at the Mill Cafe.

The Groomsmen

The human groomsmen wore relaxed linen mix suits from River Island while our two wonderful dogs wore beautiful floral collars also made by The Woodland Farm.

The Stationery

We worked with Sam, a friend of ours from a local design company to create our invites and they were stunning!

The Entertainment

To begin the evening entertainment we had a Ceilidh band (The Backroom Band) to get everyone moving (this most definitely worked) secondly a fantastic local band named Neame played, a wonderful sound and completely catered to our likes, one of its members also played Dire Straits on the piano as I walked down the aisle.

The Rings

Our hammered rings were beautifully made my this wonderful team of jewellery makers in Cornwall at Justin Duance.

The Bridesmaids

...well they were bargain China jobs, sometimes it's worth the risk! After many alterations they were beautiful!

The Decor

All table ad venue decorations were made by us as a couple with a huge help from our wedding party. We tried to make the wedding as relaxing and easy for everyone as we possibly could and all of our choices were perfect for this reason, no one felt pressured for photos and no one felt pushed for timings by the venue.
