Jess & Tom’s Surfers Wedding
I’m so excited to share the fun wedding of Jess and Tom who got married on June 26th 2015, their amazing day was captured by Karl Baker Photography.
Tom is a surfboard shaper for his dads company JP Surfboards and both he and the bride Jessica surf. He proposed with a brand new pink JP surfboard which also features in the wedding photos. What better place to get married then than at Eddys restaurant at Hillend, Llangennith one of Wales best loved surf spots and home to the world famous worms head.
For me as a wedding photographer it was a fantastic wedding to shoot, firstly because Llangennith beach is one of my favourite places to surf so also holds a lot of memories for me too.

I’m a wedding photographer from Swansea, South Wales. I love beach shoots, sunset shoots, surfing and seascape painting.
I’m fortunate to have several excellent wedding venues on my doorstep in the fantastic Gower peninsula, which is a stones throw from my house. This means that more often than not my office is the beach! I get to shoot brides on the beach nearly every week during the summer. I also travel around a fair bit too for weddings and have been booked to shoot weddings throughout the UK and Internationally. I love my job.
Being a keen seascape photographer and painter too I love to add the drama that wedding weather throws at you if I can. I guess I look for dramatic cloud formations, sunsets, rain, rainbows and general weather to the landscape that I pose a bride and groom in.
