  • Hayley & Andrew, Canada Lodge

    We hope you are all well! It's been a busy few months and a while since we updated our blog but there will be lots more photos featured in the next few months! 📸

    This blog post features Hayley & Andrew's Wedding which took place last month. It was great to return to Canada Lodge which is near Cardiff.

    We'd arranged a pre-shoot before the Wedding so the couple felt more relaxed about having their photos taken on the day. It's something we often recommend, and helps avoid any awkwardness at being in front of the camera.

    The couple had a fantastic day and Canada Lodge is in an idyllic setting with plenty of photographic locations to choose from, even if it rains! 😄

    Here are a few shots from their day...


    The above is a small selection of shots from an individual Wedding Gallery. Depending on the package chosen, there would be between 400 and 600 edited images from the day to view and share with guests.

  • Samantha & Chris, Clearwell Castle

    As you may know we are regular visitors to the stunning Clearwell Castle.

    This week's blog post features the wedding of Samantha and Chris. 

    Clearwell has an extra special significance to Samantha, having lived there as a child during it's renovation. The family still own and run the wedding venue and it was an honour to be asked to photograph for this special day. 

    Here is a sneaky peek of a few shots from the day...

    Samantha & Chris took a short carriage ride around the Castle grounds, followed by some family photos, while the guests enjoyed some refreshments.

    There were also a few surprises in store for everyone from the bride's mother Sharon...


    It was an absolutely brilliant day! 💃🍾

  • Laura & Danny, Clearwell Castle

    It’s Lensmonkey’s 10th Anniversary this month! 🍾

    With experience in photographing over 300 Weddings, it’s been a fantastic 10 years and we have photographed at some of the best venues in the UK and with some amazing couples! 

    Over the years we’ve been lucky enough to continue our relationship with many clients having captured their next milestones, photographing 'new baby' portraits and ongoing family shoots.

    We've also returned to many fantastic Venues over the years.

    As it’s our 10th Anniversary, we thought we’d show you a few shots from one of our favourite venues; Clearwell Castle.

    One of our first Weddings was held at the Castle, and we’ve been lucky enough to continue photographing there throughout the years!

    Here are a few shots from Laura and Danny’s Wedding which took place last month….

    One of our regulars... Possibly the most photographed resident at Clearwell...

    As you’ll see, the couple had a few special guests, one had the honour of bearing the rings...

    Just after the ceremony began, the rain poured down and continued to, for the next few hours!

    Phil made use of his lighting skills and the fantastic indoor space that Clearwell offers to capture shots of the couple and guests.

    By the evening, the rain held off a little and Phil captured some outdoor shots of Laura and Danny using lights and off camera flash.

    As you can see from the pictures, the couple had a fantastic Wedding Day!

  • Nic & Tom, St Audries Park

    It's been a busy few months and it was great to return to St Audries Park last month, for the beautiful Wedding of Nicola and Tom! 

    Despite some heavy rain, the couple had an amazing day! We always make the most of interior locations if the weather is wet, and with so many great locations, Phil captured the couple using the superior internal setting of St Audries. 

    We did see some sunshine after the Wedding breakfast so we made it outside for a few evening shots in the beautiful evening light.

    Here are a few pictures from their day...
