We arrived at Peckforton Castle on Jennifer and Neil’s wedding day to find the venue covered in snow and shrouded in mist. It’s a beautiful castle and it looked quite romantic as the mist bellowed around it like dry ice special fx! The only problem with mist is that it is very difficult to photograph through but we knew we’d be able to bring alot of the detail in the castle out post production so there were no worries there.
Jennifer (after changing her satin shoes to white leather boots) and Neil were brave and decided to go out into the light rain and snow for some pictures in front of the castle and gate house. It was truly the right decision, the pictures are gorgeous and the snow made for very “Winter Wedding” style photos.
The couple had their group shots taken inside the Great Hall complete with confetti throwing and finally an aerial “big group” picture taken from the balcony. The alcove at the front of the hall made for some lovely personal pictures of Jennifer and Neil also.
Jennifer and Neil had chosen a purple colour scheme, the bridesmaids were wearing long purple dresses and the tables were decorated with purple bows wrapped around the chairs and purple organza bags on the table with lovehearts inside for favours. The look was completed with purple wooden table numbers and purple ribbon around the white cake.
The final detail, which I was informed took the bride and groom a very long time to make, was a small silver painted tree which was adorned with oblong pieces of handmade paper tied on with purple ribbon each displaying a different table numbers list of guests. It was very well thought out and I must say I have never seen a table plan quite like it!
When we left Jennifer and Neil were yet to choose the song for their first dance. They had an large white pad at the ready upon which their guests could make a suggestion. I wonder what they ended up choosing?
Thanks as always go to the staff at Peckforton Castle for their help on the day
