What an amazing privilege it is to be a recommended wedding photographer by one of Shropshire’s most sought after venues Rowton Castle, When looking for that perfect Fairy Tale castle this really should be high on your list. A castle of perfect dream making….and this was the beautiful Rachel and Richard’s choice. I have a slight confession, this was a bit of a while ago…last November to be precise, but better late than never, however Rachel, being the keen blogger herself, did do a series of blogs outlining all the details on her own website. To see this in it’s fullness please click HERE
November can be a wonderful month to get married in….the beautiful hues and shades of gold, the wonderful light, the soft sun…dappled through the leaves…and the rain!
Yes….the rain, or in this case, beautiful romantic snow.
Which can make for a few interesting photographs that’s for sure
Rachel and Richard brave the weather to put their faith and trust in yours truly…the result is quite incredible.
In Rachel’s Own words
“We slipped out before the party got truly underway to take some gorgeous night shots, and it even began to snow, so we got this stunning photo, which may well be my favourite of the day. Whilst this was taken I was smiling like crazy and saying to Rich “It’s snowing” over and over.”
What a wonderful memory to keep and treasure.

Going back to the start of the day, Rachel had chosen to get ready in the more traditional bridal suite with it’s beautiful light and architecture, not to mention that gorgeous wood panelling…it is a beautiful and amazing room, one that lends itself perfectly to my more artistic side. I love the play of light and dark, the way the shadows fall and create depth. This is what getting ready at a castle is all about.
with the makeup complete, the dress was next.
Once the dress was prepared for Rachel, I nipped out to go find Richard, when the groom get’s ready at the same venue, capturing some informal images of his preparations is much easier and really
adds to the collection of images that I can then supply to my couples.
Once Rachel was in her wedding dress I returned to capture what was the most amazing bridal portraits in a most incredible setting. Rowton Castle does not disappoint, I know they have the new bridal rooms there, but for me, as a photographer who loves and adores natural, beautiful light streaming through a gorgeous window…this is what getting married in a castle is all about.
Rachel makes for a beautiful and incredible Rowton Castle bride
I will now leave you with a selection of images taken from the rest of Rachel and Richard’s amazing November wedding. If you would like to chat with me about being your Rowton Castle wedding photographer, then please get in touch.
