Becka and Charlie's Intimate Elopement 


Do not water down your wild. Show up as the powerful woman you are….  .    .


When I was offered the opportunity to plan a styled shoot at this magical location, I decided to focus on the romance and authenticity of elopement and small weddings.


Brithdir Mawr is a breathtakingly beautiful outdoor venue, with its own magnificent stone circle backdropped by Mynydd Carningli (Carningli Mountain).

Steeped in ancient tradition there is something mythical and enchanting about this exceptionally unique part of Pembrokeshire. 

Complimenting the wild and raw environment was key to styling this shoot.


My inspiration came from this beautiful Native American saying;


“A strong woman is one who feels deeply and loves fiercely. Her tears flow as abundantly as her laughter. 

A strong woman is both soft and powerful, she is both practical and spiritual. 

A strong woman in her essence is a gift to the world”


Coupling soft fabrics and tones with the drama of black leather, silver jewels and deep reds, I wanted to represent and unite these innate feminine energies.

With clever use of the low October sunlight, Benjamin Mathers Photography played with the dappled rays and perfectly captured the enchanted feeling of the day.


A big thank you to everyone involved, it was a truly personal and magical adventure.
