Stretch Tent Wedding | Beth & Colin

A few months back I spent the day with Beth and Colin who celebrated their big day with an amazing stretch tent wedding reception.  Being a Wales wedding photographer I get to see many different weird and wonderful ideas at wedding receptions, marquees, hotels, castles, but a stretch tent was a new one me!


I must admit when I met with them both at our original meeting, I was a little unsure.  I mean, a tent, which is open on one side, in May, in Wales, where it rains (a lot), really?!  But I couldn’t have been any more wrong.  It was pretty damn awesome!  Sure, it may have got a little chilly later on, but that’s what dancefloors are for right?!

The family farm was both the location for the bridal preparations and the reception and where my day began.  To say everything was pretty chilled and relaxed is a bit of an understatement.  Beth is up there with the most chilled brides I’ve ever seen, which is great for my style of natural wedding photography.

A scenic drive to and from the church in Llandewi’r Cwm lent itself nicely to some great views and backdrops for photos.  Not before a causal confetti line-up in the middle of the main road mind you! Thankfully we all survived before making our way back to the stretch tent for the reception and party.

When it came to the party and dancing time, it wasn’t long before everyone was having a blast. I have it on good authority also that the party lasted long in to the night!  I’m sure there were a few sore heads the day after.


Beth and Colin were great to work for.  Like the majority of couples who I work for, being photographed, especially posed photographs, wasn’t their thing.  They wanted relaxed natural wedding photography which captured a record of their day, just how I like to work.
