I love winter weddings with their special warm feel and challenging photography conditions. In December last year I visited beautiful Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire countryside to photograph wedding of one very lovely couple, Mark and Kate! I got to know them a bit better when I did their engagement shoot a few months back and I really loved their way of thinking and attitude to wedding planning. I was also very exited to be shooting in amazing Berkeley Castle for the first time. Berkeley Castle is one of the most remarkable buildings in Britain and are said to be one of the most outstanding examples of Mediaeval domestic architecture in the country. I had big expectations before arriving at the venue, and it didn’t let me down at all.
As usual, a selection of some of my favourite images from this wedding. As usual, please feel free to leave your comments.
We started the day with Kate’s preparations in Clifton area of Bristol, not far from where I live and then moved to nearby Redland church for the wedding service, which is located right next to my tennis club.. so it felt a bit like visiting my usual places around the city, but with different assignment on hand.
Kates sister was singing for the newlyweds and I was absolutely stunned about what came out of her – WOW, what a voice she has! and featuring the church choir and organ , it was truly impressive!!
Arriving at the grand Berkeley Castle!
