It’s especially exciting because we produced this bridal photo shoot in Wales.

To celebrate the 1st Anniversary of  a charity that is very close to our hearts here at Coco Bella.

Pritchard & Moore is the first charity bridal boutique where ALL profits go directly to help fund life saving research at Cancer Research Wales.

Having lost my own beloved mother to that vicious disease I wanted to help support this charity.

As a bridal boutique it’s a perfect match for us at Coco Bella.

Bridal Designers such as Welsh designer Stephanie Allin, Ellis Bridal, Jonathan James and Ronald Joyce, to name but a few, have donated stunning wedding gowns to Pritchard & Moore.

It was also a chance to support the wonderful Alison George who manages the charity bridal boutique for Cancer Research Wales.

Alison is like the ‘bride whisperer’ – she can take one look at you and know exactly what gown would make you look fabulous.

She’s also hilariously funny and always makes me laugh.

I got to work with some of my favourite Welsh wedding suppliers for this shoot, including the wonderful Maxine Howells Photography.

Maxine knows how to capture every bride’s best angle on their wedding day.

Not only is Maxine super talented but she also has a wicked sense of humour.

It was her camera lens that captured these perfect moments.

We were blessed with a secret location on a fabulous farm in the heart of the Welsh Valleys.

We couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous backdrop.

The lovely Lisa from The Urban Flower Studio  is one of the most creative and exciting florists in Wales.

She crafted the exquisite bridal bouquet, floral accessories and stunning garland for the horse.

Together the brilliant Love From Ellie and fantastic Lumi Event Design brought charming rustic bridal style to life, in the barn of this working farm and stable.

Both so original, beautiful and quirky – I especially adored the fabulous armchair.

Our groom was dressed in a perfect rustic waistcoat with matching tie and Italian blue trousers by the style leaders in Welsh groomswear at Dyfed Menswear.

Our stunning bridal-inspired video was shot by wedding photographer and videographer  Glyn Rainer.

Glyn is hugely talented, rising star who also works in film and television.

You should snap him up for your wedding asap.

I also want to say a HUGE thank you to the fantastic Clair Rawlings of Lab Class Model Management, who ‘loaned’ us our gorgeous models India and Charley for the photoshoot.

And a big HUG for my son Will, who agreed to be the ‘groom’.

I know his grandmother would have been so very proud of him.

I hope you love these images as much as we do.
