Simon and Hayley’s Nash Point Wedding

I had the pleasure of shooting a wedding for Simon and Hayley at Nash Point lighthouse. It is the only lighthouse in the UK that is cleared for weddings and was an interesting wedding to cover as I’m no fan of heights and I knew that I would have to get up on the top level for a couple of shots before the day was through.

For 175 years Nash Point lighthouse, designed by James Walker, the Engineer-in-Chief to Trinity House, has been keeping the mariner safe of Nash Sands, the sandbanks off the point at the entrance to the Bristol Channel.

In 1977 a rare plant, the tuberous thistle (Cirsium Tuberosum), was found growing around the lighthouse.

Nash Point was the last manned lighthouse in Wales. The lighthouse keepers left on 5 August 1998.

Nash Point formally opened its doors to the public in 2007 so why not come along and see this wonderful lighthouse and the stunning scenery around about it from a new perspective.
