In the last few years I've probably photographed as many weddings at as anywhere else. I'm fortunate that the Gower is on my doorstep and I'm lucky that working as a wedding photographer in Swansea I have so many amazing wedding venues near me. I read in a recent article that the Gower wedding venues now bring in more business and also Tourism than any other area in Wales including Cardiff.
Oxwich is one of my favourites in that the backdrop changes every week in that many of the wedding photos are taken on the beach. As beach wedding venues go this is right up there with any other wedding venue in the UK. The location of the Oxwich bay hotel marquee to the beach means that the backdrop changes throughout the day like no other wedding venue. The tide can be in.. tide out and the actual sand and rocks on the beach can change from week to week giving a different look on any different day. I've worked there in every possible weather condition from bright summer days to torrential rain, fog and also storm conditions during winter weddings. This is both challenging and also exciting. In fact I've captured some of my best work and favourite photos during storm weather in winter. The photo below was taken the day after boxing day in 2015.
I love the drama of wedding photography mixed with Landscapes. Living so close to the beach and the coast its easy to shoot bride and groom portraits in such dramatic environments. Throw in typical British weather and a 14mm wide angle lens and usually my clients wedding images with large skies and dramatic beach or coastal backdrops.
Another recent Autumn wedding at Oxwich bay was the wedding of Steph & Dan. Below is another example from a lower level.
As well as landscape drama I also love the evening light at the beach. During sunnier summer days I will often set up my lights on the beach during the evening and catch the sky as it turns colour during sunset. I love using off camera flash with my Interfit S1 battery powered lights. This allows me to be free of any cabling or heavy power supplies and light up the brides white dress in the evening. Below are some examples of off camera flash at Oxwich bay.
You can clearly see the different effect light has on the brides dress and the way the camera captures the pinks and blue hue colours in the sky at sunset.
