The Swan at Hay Hotel weddings

The Swan at Hay weddings with Lisa & James

It was great to cover Lisa & James recent wedding at The Swan in Hay on Wye. It’s a beautiful part of the country and a wonderful place to have a wedding.


The day started out with Lisa, Mum and bridesmaids getting in an upstairs bedroom at The Swan at Hay Hotel. I recorded the event faithfully. Meanwhile, James was shuffling around downstairs, greeting guests. Although he looked a little nervous, you could tell he was happy. The guests took their place in one of the reception rooms downstairs and we all waited or Lisa to make her grand entrance. I snapped away as she entered the room with her Father. There was some beautiful light entering the room from the bay window at the end.

After the reception we all made I way out to the hotel gardens and I photographed the guests chatting and enjoying canapes and drinks on the lawn. By now everyone had worked up quite an appetite so dinner was announced. I photographed Lisa and James making their grand entrance. This is always a good moment to capture as the couple is often animated and the guests cheering. At this point, put my cameras down, after all, who wants their photos taken while they are eating.

I’d just like to say a big thank you to Lisa and James for choosing Ketch 22 photography. I had a wonderful day and I look forward to covering another wedding at The Swan at Hay Hotel in the future
