Gemma & Mark’s Canada lake and Lodge Wedding took place in July 2011 and after a very wet week beforehand the weather started well in the morning by the afternoon we did have the odd shower but nothing that would dampen what was already a fantastic wedding day.
Canada lake and Lodge is a unique wedding venue in a stunning setting. It is a stone built lodge in private grounds overlooking Canada Lake. It is also very popular with local fishermen and is found near Creigiau village just northwest of Cardiff. I have photographed a number of weddings at Canada lake and Lodge and it always looks stunning whether for the ceremony or the wedding breakfast and this day was no exception.
Gemma looked absolutely stunning and arrived in style with her Dad in an open topped Volkswagen Golf. After the very personal and emotional service the guests made their way out onto the balcony to relax with a glass of champagne & enjoy the stunning views that Canada Lake and Lodge has to offer.
I always enjoy photographing the reactions of laugher, & tears that the speeches bring and these did not disappoint. Gemma’s fathers speech was particularly funny with his impression of who wants to be a millionaire and his collection of framed prints depicting proud moments in his daughters life showed just how precious Gemma was to him. Mark’s brothers made a joint speech and had no shortage of material to embarrass their brother.
