Bryan & Kelly – Gellifawr Woodland Retreat – Wales


Bryan and Kelly invited Calibre photography to photograph their wedding day and chose the beautiful spot of Gellifawr in Pembrokeshire. Even the rain couldn’t spoil the bride & Grooms day.

Gellifawr is tucked away in the peaceful Gwaun Valley, a perfect woodland landscape in the Pembrokeshire National Park and a stones throw away from the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast line. The former farm and mill house retains its original charm and character and sits within 12 acres of landscaped gardens and ponds.

Bryan & Kelly were trying to find something different to the ‘Norm’ and didn’t know of any other person that had got wed there so jumped at the opportunity of booking a date.

Bryan, a newly trained serviceman soon to be posted to Germany with Kelly his bride, was dressed in his No.1 uniform along with his best man in his no.2 uniform. Kelly looked beautiful in her flowing dress and tiara.

The reception with its unique cakes was a first for me. Cakes made of cheese. The wedding cake idea came from their LOVE of cheese. They are both definitely more savoury people than sweet, but for those that required something a little more traditional with Bryan’s mother making a fruit cake with mouldable white chocolate that represented the dents and holes in typical cheeses.
The mice that were used to decorate the cake were actually collectables that Bryan’s Mother and father had in the loft. They were from the era of the royal wedding and had Bryan’s uniform painted on the male character.
