The Dragons Gate Wedding Photography
Anni and Hass were one of the many couples who had to change their wedding venue in 2020 and again in 2021. Luckily they secured the Dragons Gate wedding venue in Herefordshire, just over the border. As Wales weren’t allowing weddings to take place they struck gold in my opinion! A beautiful spot with amazing views – I love this part of the UK and it’s not far from where I grew up.
Also, I finally got to work with celebrant Zena Birch. I’d heard a lot about her from friends in the industry and it was great to listen to her lead the ceremony.
One thing I found out was Anni and Hass used to be wedding photographers themselves! Part of me things ‘wow – they really know their stuff and they picked me! Go me!’ And part of me thinks, ‘oh boy – I better not mess up!’ But the wedding gods were with us and we were treated to a beautiful day with a sunset, pizza and everything!
A few things I loved about their wedding were their friends and family. A super fun crowd to be around and no end of fun natural photo opportunities. They brought a few Persian traditions to the table (including amazing food and hospitality.) The evening saw their Pizza van arrive – and boy was it good pizza! The evening ended like most great countryside weddings with a huge party in the barn! A shout out to Herringbone Cocktail Club for their amazing music and The Dragons Gate for being such great hosts.
Massive congrats to Anni and Hass. They were so much fun on the day and it was a joy to be there, snapping away. More than a few of these photos will be going in to the portfolio soon! Enough chat and on with The Dragons Gate wedding photography.
