We ventured into the depths of Wales, for a family wedding in Laugharne. (West Wales). This remote location is where the famous Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas lived with his family. The famous ‘Boat House’ that is romantically perched on the side of the estuary is where the poet wrote some of his many famous works including ‘Under Milk Wood’.

I had never been to this part of Wales before and it was a beauty to discover. So quiet that it is almost deafening. The small town is host to a few hotels and cottages with small corner shops. I would have trouble living there as there isn’t much to do on a daily basis, and I guess the beautiful view would only surpass so many days of not doing anything. That said it was lovely to go somewhere and feel completely isolated from the rest of the world. (Phone signal was none existent).

I always love weddings as it is a chance for everyone to get dressed up, eat nice food and see family that you haven’t necessarily seen in a while. As it was a winter wedding in Wales, you can image we didn’t go without a bit of rain.

What made the wedding special were all the small details that had been thought about. The wedding had a red theme as it was on Valentines Day. This transcended from the bridesmaid dresses to the table settings.
The bride and groom got engaged in New York on Valentines Day hence the place cards were personalised wooden apples representing ‘The Big Apple’.
Welsh cakes on arrival was just perfect!

In terms of outfit choices for a winter wedding, I was quite unsure what would be most suitable. I chose to wear a long dress which turned out to be a wise decision! The weather wasn’t the nicest.
A lot of people at the wedding had opted for lace overlay. Which I found quite interesting as it’s been a while (few seasons) since lace was THE fashion trend.
That said – I was wearing a lace dress. It seemed very in keeping with the rest of the wedding.
