It was a pleasure to return to Nant Gwrtheyrn for Becky & Rhys's New Year's Eve Wedding Photography. The stunning natural beauty of this location, combined with the warmth and love shared by the happy couple and their guests, made for some truly breathtaking Nant Gwrtheyrn wedding photography.

Nant Gwrtheyrn or “The Nant” as it is often called is an amazing and unique wedding venue, one of my favourites to photograph. Located on the Llŷn Peninsula in North Wales, this small village is nestled between rugged cliffs and the Irish Sea. It’s a place of breathtaking natural beauty, with a unique mix of rugged coastline, lush greenery, and charming stone buildings, providing a stunning back drop to your wedding photography. It is now home to the National Welsh Language and Heritage Centre, having recently undergone a multimillion pound renovation it is a wonderful wedding venue complete with its own 19th-century chapel and 5* accommodation in the old quarryman’s cottages, allowing your guests to stay on site and make your wedding more than a day. Overlooking the sea and with the mountains behind, it is truly a struggle to find a more beautiful venue than Nant Gwrtheyrn Wedding Photography.

After getting ready on site, the ceremony took place in the Quarryman’s Chapel, a quaint and historic building that sits on the edge of the Nant Gwrtheyrn cliffs. The light streaming through the chapel’s windows created a soft, ethereal glow that added to the romantic atmosphere. Becky looked absolutely stunning in her dress. Rhys sharp in tux, couldn’t take his eyes off of her as she walked down the aisle.

After the ceremony, we took a walk around the picturesque Nant Gwrtheyrn village, taking advantage of the various beautiful spots around the venue to take some portraits of the couple. The wind was typical of Nant Gwrtheyrn, I always think that no matter what the weather as long as you embrace it you will always have a great day. Becky and Rhys really did embrace the weather and we had great time.

The reception was held in the Nant Gwrtheyrn Cultural and Language Centre, which is a large stone building that dates back to the 1800s. The Centre is beautifully restored and provides a perfect location for a reception, with plenty of space for guests to mingle and dance and great views across the Irish Sea. The lighting inside the Centre was warm and inviting, providing the perfect backdrop for the reception.

As the clock struck midnight and the new year began, Becky, Rhys and thier guests enjoyed a firework display, clelberating starting the new year as husband and wife!and I knew that this would be a moment that they would treasure for the rest of their lives.
