JOANNA + RHYS // HUMANIST LOFT STUDIOS WEDDING
Hello! Haven’t been here for so long someone could think I’m done with shooting weddings (unless you follow me on Instagram, then you’re up to date). Definitely not done, still loving my weddings, adoring my couples (and I’m so lucky working with some really cool and non-traditional couples!) and shooting all the time. Today I decided to take a break from the huge pile of editing and share with you one of 2017 weddings I was lucky to photograph.
Lovely Jo and Rhys contacted me last spring while planning their wedding all the way from Amsterdam (and in a record time of just a few weeks!) and got me excited about their big day right away. It was a truly modern wedding day filled with personal touches. Photography studio transformed into a fantastic alternative wedding venue, humanist wedding ceremony full of laughter and singing, Welch details, more signing, and an epic party. Everything as cool and the bride and groom.

The Love Squad. I should probably explain that Love was going to be Jo’s new surname.. How cool is that?!
Arriving guests were welcomed by the Gwalia Male Welch Voice Choir – and that is not the only Welch detail referring to groom’s heritage…Keep scrolling!
Humanist wedding ceremonies are my absolute favorites and this one was truly wonderful. A celebrant extraordinaire Zena Birch together with Jo and Rhys crafted a beautiful ceremony that included a story of how the couple met and got together. It was full of laughter, tears and singing together with all the guests.
The moment when Jo found out about previously missing wedding rings 😉
A very special Welch surprise from the mother of the groom for her reading.
Love when the bride does the speech, and have to say that more and more of my brides smash it!
The Pianoman who can play any song you might request (and I remember saying “no way they will be dancing to just a guy playing the piano” oh was I wrong!).
When the party starts it the middle of the dinner!
Another surprise, this time for the couple – family singing along their first dance song!
