Signing the Register – Cardiff Registrar Rules
The Cardiff Registrars are a little more strict than some – but lovely with it! They are ‘photographer-friendly’ but don’t like a lot of movement during the ceremony. I always try to approach them first to introduce myself and reassure them that I will be discreet throughout.
In common with many counties and boroughs, they don’t allow photography of the signing but set up a ‘dummy’ register afterwards for some posed shots.
The New House Country Hotel Wedding Breakfast
A wedding at the New House Country Hotel is seamless and at no time is this more apparent than during that transition time from drinks and canapes to the main meal. Your wedding planner is on hand throughout and communicates the running of things with the photographer, ensuring they have captured everything they need every step of the way.
