Portmeirion Wedding Photography by Firehorse Photography

Why is there only one picture above and no wedding pictures from a single Portmeirion wedding?

Well, to be honest, it’s because we haven’t covered one at the venue…yet…and this post details a special offer in this regard…so bear with me for a minute, – it’s a good one!!

First of all, a brief bit of background…

I have been a full-time specialist wedding photographer for over 13 years and during that time have captured over 500 wedding days throughout the UK and beyond including;
country houses in England, marquees in Wales, castles in Scotland, plus weddings in Ireland, France, Italy, Greece, USA, Mexico, China, Australia and New Zealand.

So it’s not like I’m trying to build a portfolio or gain experience, – even a quick glance around this site will confirm that.

No, instead, I’m looking for a bit of inspiration…

Every year, we cover a maximum of 30 weddings throughout the UK and abroad, – mostly 3-5 weddings in France (we have another site for that here), many marquee weddings (we cover a lot of these, – see here) and many many weddings at a number of great venues that we have built up a good reputation with, leading to more of the same.

So in this day and age of Google, how easy is it to get a booking for a new venue?

Hard, – very hard and that first nut is the hardest to crack, hence why this post that you have found exists, titled ‘Portmeirion Wedding Photography’, almost certainly what you typed into a search engine to find us.

So why Portmeirion specifically and what’s the offer?

I have visited the place on a couple of occasions and being something of a sad man, have the boxed set of the original Patrick McGoohan TV series ‘The Prisoner‘. “I am not a number, I am a free man!!” (Sorry, getting a bit carried away there…)

In short I love the place and how often do enquiries for the place come up?

They never do and there’s nothing odd about that, – the venue undoubtedly has a list of ‘recommended photographers’ and others have picked up a wedding or two so have some solid material to blog and be found.

I don’t, hence this.

We have no intention of ‘muscling’ in on any recommended list, simply Portmeirion is a box I’d personally like to tick in my career for no other reason than I’d love to shoot a wedding there.

The offer is a simple one, – a straight £500 off any of our package prices and no excess travel fees.

Any catches?

None, but if you’d like a ‘caveat’ it would be we’re looking for a client who loves our work first and foremost and the discount is just a bonus.
The wedding should be ideally May-Sep for the weather, but otherwise nothing really other than our normal T&C’s.

That’s it, – if you’d like to have a zero-obligation chat, either complete the contact form, or give us a call.
