Wedding season – summer
Venue – Eastnor Castle
Eastnor Castle is a very popular venue choice for many couple’s looking to ‘tie the knot’, it has the grandeur of a stately home and many photo opportunities for a Hereford Wedding Photographer. Helen and Barrington had chosen this fantastic venue for their special day when we met them a few months earlier at a West Midlands wedding fayre that we often attend and as we are regular Eastnor Castle Wedding Photographers they decided that we were the perfect choice for them, we discussed their wedding day plans in more detail when they came to visit us at our place in Herefordshire.
Helen and Barrington’s wedding day started early in the morning at Eastnor Castle with their bridal and groom preparations, they had booked two photographers so we were able to capture the whole day from each perspective with a documentary wedding photography style.
In the girl’s room we had the fabulous Brook Price from Beauty Luxe Pro, our famous and local make-up artist who we have worked with many times in the past, she’s very talented and her make-up looks absolutely incredible in the photos.
With all the finishing touches in place the time came for the big moment and so the beautiful bride made her way down the grand staircase accompanied by some live music, the guests and the groom were waiting at the bottom and then the wedding party moved towards the majestic ceremony room at Eastnor Castle, a very moving and emotional experience. One of the reasons that we love our job as West Midlands Wedding Photographers at Eastnor Castle is that the venue is licensed for civil ceremonies, so it means the whole day can happen in one place and for a wedding photographer the light sometimes in a church can be a little dark.
After the ceremony the wedding party was invited to a reception in the octagonal room for drinks and canapes, however as the sun was shining we took the opportunity to move outside for family and group photographs, then whilst the party enjoyed the reception we managed to get some great natural wedding photography of Helen and Barrington in the grounds of the castle, they are so photogenic and were very relaxed in front of our cameras.
Then it was time for the speeches, full of wit and humour, especially from the best men who were showing different pictures of Barrington wearing an array of colourful party outfits from the recent years! We ended this fab day with the bride and grooms first dance, followed by fantastic r&b music to which all the guests young and old danced the night away.
Helen and Barrington, it was an absolute pleasure to be a part of your special day. Once again thank you for choosing us to be your wedding photographers Midlands. As usual the complete gallery of wedding photography is available to view for friends and family via online password protected gallery.
