Same Sex Wedding at Peckforton Castle

Debbie & Angie were married at Peckforton Castle recently, and asked me to produce their same sex wedding photography at this stunning Cheshire venue. I know Debbie from a couple of years back, when I photographed her sister Angela’s wedding at Shrigley Hall, so didn’t hesitate to say yes to this Autumn wedding at Peckforton.

Two Brides, one wedding day

The day’s schedule worked out ok on paper, but Debbie was getting ready an hour away from Peckforton Castle, whilst Angie was already there with her friends and family. So I enlisted the help of all-round lovely man (and talented photographer!) Martin Hambleton to work with me for the day, and cover any overlap required….just in case! Also working with us, was the gentleman that is Dave Richardson from Rich Video.

Peckforton Castle Wedding Venue

Peckforton Castle is stunning Cheshire wedding venue. Always atmospheric, the venue is a joy to work in…even on an overcast October day! With Martin covering the guests’ arrival, I went to say hello to Angie and grab a few last-minute shots of her getting ready. The excitement levels were beginning to rise now, with a little over 30 minutes to go. Debbie arrived bang on time with ther bridesmaids, in one of Horgan’s classic wedding cars.

After the owl had flown down the aisle, delivering the rings, and the final vows taken, Debbie & Angie were Wife & Wife, so it was time to brave the cool outdoor temperature for a few couple photos, before heading back inside…erm,  for a few more. Then…it was party time! The atmosphere went up a few clicks and the wedding breakfast was called. With some lovely speeches – (and the odd tear or two), it was time for the evening celebrations to begin.

Donna & Leigh’s winter wedding photos from Peckforton Castle

Donna & Leigh were married in the New Year at Peckforton Castle – ironically my last wedding of 2015 was also at this brilliant Cheshire wedding venue! Being January, the weather was as to be expected; glorious….until the afternoon. Luckily we were ‘under one roof’ for this wedding, so getting outside wasn’t actually high on Donna & Leigh’s list of priorities. Their brief to me was to capture the day, and just ‘do my thing’…ok then! Here’s a few photos from my latest Peckforton Castle Wedding Photography.

I arrived at Peckforton to clearing blue skies and promise of fine weather. Fingers crossed. The ground was very wet from a lot of recent rainfall, so even at this early hour, the exterior bride and groom portraits booked in for the afternoon may be compromised slightly. Hmmm…

I caught up with Donna and her two best friends, and bridesmaids all giggly and excited. In a side room, Donna’s mum was quietly making the bouquets and buttonholes (she’s a florist), so I said hello and got to work photographing Donna’s dress and accessories…plus a few secret shots of mum and baby son Solly…

I caught up with Leigh and the groomsmen in the bar. They seemed a lively bunch, though Leigh was quietly taking it all in. Slightly nervous, as can be expected, Leigh was mostly concerned about his speech being ‘just right’, so after a while disappeared to practice a couple of run-throughs…

As the guests were arriving, and the registrars’ interviews finished with, it was almost time. Donna and her dad waited quietly to be called through, giving me a couple of minutes for some live portraits (with no direction) before scooting back into the Great Hall for the ceremony…

Little Solly decided just after the exchanging of rings he’d had enough. Grandad couldn’t make him smile, so was handed over to mum and dad…and to get a better view of the proceedings…

I took a couple of the groomsmen with me for the bride and groom portraits, to deliberately put the couple off and heckle the session as much as possible whilst I quietly photographed them. Ten minutes later we were done…and the couple never really noticed… 🙂 Thanks lads…

With the portraits finished, and around an hour to mingle with guests, we went in for the wedding breakfast and speeches…

As night fell, we were into the cutting of the cake and first dance – a brilliantly choreographed routine. As the guests joined in, I was swamped on the dancefloor, papped by a female guest with her new camera, and almost bowled over by a lady who slipped in her high heels….all stande=ard stuff for a wedding photographer then…

Wedding Photography at Peckforton Castle

Sarah & Steve commissioned me recently to be their Peckforton Castle Wedding Photographer. Based in Cambridge, the couple fell in love with Peckforton and decided to have their Winter / Christmas wedding there. Who can blame them? Peckforton Castle is one of the most atmospheric wedding venues around….even on a (very) wet December day!

I arrived at Peckforton nice and early, and had a good look around…in the rain…to work out Plans A, B and C in case the weather really threatened to spoil the party. I caught up with Sarah and her three bridesmaids in one of the suites in the hotel. Gloriously dark, lit by only a small incandescant lamp and what little grey daylight managed to creep in, I went to work. I used a small flash on the detail images, just to add a touch of quality to the light I had available.

As the clocked ticked on, it was time to me to catch up with Steve and his guests. The Dysart Arms in Bunbury was my second location of the day. But the guests were being well behaved – one quick drink and off to church…the splendid St Boniface across the street…
