Cwtch Of The Week: Hannah & Jamie at Rest Bay, Porthcawl

We’re thrilled to welcome back our regular Cwtch of The Week feature. If you’ve not seen it before, every Monday we feature a beautiful image of a Welsh couple having a proper cwtch. It’s Lush!

Todays gorgeous one is brought to you by a member of our Lush List & returning Cwtchfest 2020 exhibitor, the lovely Kate Richards Photography.

Over to Kate, as she shares a bit about the lovely couple and how this cwtch came to be.

In fair Aberdare we lay our scene, lol, sorry a bit of Romeo and Juliet! This is Hannah and Jamie, who celebrated their september wedding at Llechwen Hall.

Hannah first saw Jamie across a crowded Cardiff airport and thought he was a bit of alright. They were both on the same flight to Ibiza and turned out to be in the same hotel too! When the lift broke he carried her suitcase to the top floor and thats how it all started.

They built a little family over the years and then Jamie took Hannah away for a surprise getaway to Paris. He proposed on the big wheel at the Christmas market, got down on two knees as he lost his balance!

Instead of a classic pre-wedding couple session, Hannah & Jamie wanted a family session on the beach so we headed to Rest Bay, Porthcawl. It was the eve of a storm, but that didn’t matter to them. We went out and had an absolute blast on the beach, with a couple of cwtches added for good measure. The result is dramatically beautiful images with comfy jumpers and big smiles.

Many thanks Kate!
