Warm & Cosy Cheshire Wedding
You know its been such a long time since I photographed a wedding at Peckforton Castle. Being a wedding photographer in the North West I have photographed a couple of weddings here especially in my early days. As the years have gone by and my perspective on light, moments and compositions have changed. It was great top get back and see the venue from a new perspective. There are a few venues in this area I’ve been to as a Cheshire wedding photographer and I just love the grandeur of this place.
Bride + Groom Castle Preparations
I also forgot how good the light is at this wedding venue. The textures on the walls and the shapes of the windows all help aiding me to make my photographs. Robert got ready with his friends down at the entrance to the entire venue. With his tartan trousers to introduce a Scottish twist into his attire. Whilst his groomsmen wore kilts. A relaxed morning with these guys and perhaps a wee dram of whiskey before helping each other our with their button holes. Once ready they headed up to the main castle for the wedding ceremony.
Jessica’s bridal preparations where low key but in no terms lacked character. There was a really nice and calm mood during the build up to the wedding from the brides perspective. I tried to capture the calm and the excitement at the same time. I love to try and illustrate the vibe in my images. It’s important to me that when people are looking back at the images, it visually recreates the atmosphere. Jessica’s dad was super proud and love these images of him seeing her for the fist time in her dress.
I’ve also tried here to set the scene with the Airel photo of the guests hanging out from above before the wedding began. Also the gorgeous flower arch built by Flowers from Bureau Botany are just gorgeous. These guys also provided the flowers for the rest of the wedding including Jessicas bouquet.
