Sixteen weeks, which is essentially four months, to go until
we renew our vows for our 10th Wedding Anniversary.
Guess what? We will not be staying here in Bath, England as planned.
I had originally envisioned taking photos in the beautiful Sommerset countryside
and an intimate reception in our back garden with Solsbury hill as our view.
While that would have been just perfect for us,
my husband wanted to do something a little bit more.
It is now a destination vow renewal and we are taking this fete to Wales!

Snowdonia, Wales. The name alone sounds like a mystical location in a fairytale story.
It is a region in northern Wales, a national park, and gets its name from Mt. Snowdon.
Not only is the area beautiful beyond words it is also tied into the Arthurian legend.
The area is bustling with outdoor activities like cycling, climbing,
horse riding, golfing, canyoning, caving, water sports.
There are the historical sites, railways, food, shopping, and events.
I must find out where this bridge is or if there are more like it near where we will be staying.
As a photographer my mind is racing with ideas for wedding and family photos.
I really want to go see Portmeirion, pictured below, during our time in Wales.
It is a unique coastal resort in Snowdonia that really could be a fairytale.
The colours of the landscape alone really make the colour buildings come alive.
It is no wonder so many brides choose Portmeirion as their wedding destination.
I have one dream to add to this new location and that is to ride horses there.
Also envisioning being photographed in my gown with a horse.
That would be perfection.
As of last week we booked our holiday rental where family and friends will join us for a week.
I now am pouring over images and links of things to see and do in the area.
I know this will be one trip that will have to be followed up with return visits.
There is just so much to see and do and Snowdonia is quite a big area to cover.
My family is very outdoorsy and we do a lot of walking and enjoy outdoor activities.
I am hoping for as much sunshine as Wales will allow this blushing bride 2.0
Q: Have you ever been to Wales? Or do you have any ideas for our Vow Renewal?
