Wedding photographer Bridgend - professional wedding photographer

Bridgend... or Pen-y-Bont in welsh, meaning "The main bridge on the river Ogmore" is a town in between Cardiff and Swansea. The original bridge (pictured below) was built in 1425 and crosses the river Ogmore. In the early 1100's three castles were built, including Newcastle Castle (pictured below) as a defensive triangle for the area.

Thinking to get married in Bridgend?
If you like lush green hills and medieval Castles, or perhaps thinking to hold your wedding in these places, then I would certainly recommend Bridgend.

A selection of just some Locations I Cover in Bridgend.



Court Colman Manor
This stunningly grand design Georgian mansion dates back to the Tudor times. Only recently did the mansion become a hotel in 1981, and now a thriving business.
Court Colman has lots to offer a future bride and groom, including 6 acres of landscaped gardens overlooking the hills of Garw Valley, with its own waterfall and Victorian Rose Walk.

Based on my own experience covering weddings here, I have witnessed the beauty of this place first hand. As soon as you enter the main doors, it takes a good minute to take on the scale of the Lobby area in terms of design and quality. With its original wooden staircase and floors, this House really makes you feel special and welcome. The staff is great also, really taking the time to cater to individuals' needs whoever you are, even the photographer.

Court Colman also has an award-winning Indian Restaurant in the Hotel, including other menus of course.

Coed-y-Mwstwr Hotel
Built-in 1888 and opened as a hotel in 1965, the Victoria Coed-y-Mwstwr or "whispering trees" sits in the middle of 17 plus acres of tranquil woodland, a great place for a couples retreat. If you're feeling energetic they also have a gym, tennis courts, and golf course nearby.

Having photographed four weddings here in past years, including a recent 1920's style wedding, I can say with all honesty, this is one of my favourite venues in South Wales. It may not be a 5-star hotel, but having worked closely with the staff and spent time throughout the whole of the building, It really has a 5 star feel to it, especially when it comes to personal care and service. Maybe this is due to it being privately owned.... I don't know, but I always judge the quality of service by the way they treat myself, the photographer, because if they treat me with respect (which they certainly do here) then guaranteed they will go the extra mile for you.

St Mary's Hotel, near Bridgend
Situated just minutes from Bridgend town center, in the middle of 150 plus acres of beautiful fields and countryside, St Mary's Hotel is a 16th-century building with their main trade being Golf and Weddings.

Many of the rooms here have retained their original appearance, with the stone walls and fireplaces, transporting you back 500 years ago, including one of the main executive suits set in the rafters above, with the four poster bed and solid oak flooring, overlooking the beautiful countryside.


When looking at reviews online for this hotel you will notice that people are saying "a lovely little place" etc, and it is "little" compared to the big names, but you can be sure they don't make them like this anymore, and being little means cosey, and cosey means comfortable, especially if you like a friendly, family atmosphere.
