Real Wedding in Portmeirion (sounds Welsh, Looks Italian…)

By Claire

Real wedding in Portmeirion (sounds Welsh, looks Italian…) Portmeirion is enchanting: a Welsh village, built to resemble an Italian one, with colourful little houses and too cute for words! So I couldn’t resist Simon and Rachael’s wedding – I think you’ll love it. It fits perfectly with the surroundings: quirky and lots of fun.

Rachael wore a gorgeous little vintage inspired wedding dress, very Audrey Hepburn I think! With a birdcage veil and the cutest shoes to go with it. And Simon is a super cool groom (I want his glasses!).

Their wedding photographer is Martin Lyons, who told me, “This wedding was very much an intimate affair with only 24 guests & the bride and groom.”

Martin said, “In some ways this wedding was very different to others, the ceremony was very intimate which was lovely! Fortunately we managed to escape a monster downpour which came just before the groups, I then spent 45 mins with the bride & groom before the meal. There were no speeches (1st time ever). That’s what I love about weddings they are all so different! All together it was a fun, intimate, relaxed day.”

After seeing these images I admit I had to google Portmeirion. It definitely sounds Welsh, but it sure as hell looks like a little piece of Italy – apparently it was built over fifty years from 1925 to “pay tribute to the atmosphere of the Mediterranean”

The shiniest shoes ever – I really like this photo with Simon’s shiny shoes and the pebbles.

Rachael’s shoes from Dune are really cute – just the right mix of glam and playful I think – and perfect for Portmeirion.

More of Portmeirion… the fountain, archways, sculptures and mediterranean greenery make it a really unique location for wedding photographs – unless you count Italy.

They make such a stylish couple. I love all those petticoats on Rachael’s wedding dress.

Wales has its own lovely charm. I love Rachael’s little smile in this photograph.

The wedding reception is really elegant: lots of white, no fuss, just the prettiest accessories and decorations.
