Fforest Wedding Photographer - Natasha & Matt
Fforest, Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK
Natasha and Matt’s beautiful natural wedding took place at the magical outdoor venue Fforest in Pembrokeshire, South Wales. Natasha is a herbalist by profession and runs her own company Forage Botanicals and so it was a no brainer that they were going to choose an earthy wedding day out in nature with all of their loved ones. I was so excited when they chose me to be their South Wales wedding photographer!
Everyone including myself got to stay in Fforest’s amazing yurts, bell tents and geodesic domes for the weekend, surrounded by the most beautiful countryside and people.
Hats off to Natasha and Matt for arranging such a lovely, earthy wedding weekend and a round of applause to Fforest for having one of the most incredible venues I’ve ever visited.

And what a beauty of a venue it is for a natural countryside wedding! If campfires, teepees, log cabins, home-grown produce and of course rolling Welsh countryside float your boat (and how could it not?!) then you NEED to check out Fforest.
It’s such a welcoming place – homely, green and natural. The spaces are varied and versatile with tents, barns, teepees, farm buildings, woodland glades and fields which all create a great sense of adventure and connection with your surroundings. There’s no fear of your festival wedding being rained off here either because you’re never far from shelter. It’s all shelter which suits the environment though, you never feel removed from the countryside around you.
On-site accommodation is plentiful and runs the whole gamut of what counts as camping; bell tents, geo-domes, huts and cabins, so if glamping is your thing you’ll be in heaven. Dining is very communal with long wooden tables and benches – perfect for a rustic wedding vibe. There’s even a tiny old stone building that serves as the on-site pub, complete with a crackling fire. Guess where I ended up once I’d downed cameras for the evening? A perfect way to wind down after a day shooting as a South Wales wedding photographer…
