Emily & Richard’s St.Pierre wedding in Chepstow was on a rainy day in August which started out very wet and turned into a lovely afternoon with gorgeous light. There was a traditional ceremony at Holy Trinity Christchurch in Newport and then we went on to the reception at St.Pierre Marriott Hotel near Chepstow. Emily & Richard wanted their wedding photographs to be as natural and fun as possible with a more traditional shots mixed in. St.Pierre is quite a traditional wedding venue with some spaces that allow for some really gorgeous romantic shots.
Emily & Richard may have had a little jump on the bed as well.
My Favourite part of the day was when Emily & Richard exchanged gifts with each other. Richard’s gift was a set of Royal Doulton glasses and decanter and Emily’s gift was a pair of the most wonderful Christian Louboutin black patent leather shoes. You can see from the photographs she was rather happy!
Here’s what St.Pierre has to say about themselves:
