Peckforton Castle Wedding Photography Cheshire – Yasmin & Zach
Yasmin & Zach’s wedding was our first at Peckforton Castle. Let’s just say we were more than a little impressed by this place! The scale of the castle, the grounds, the pristine upkeep, and let’s not even mention the incredible food yet! There’s a lot to love about Peckforton Castle, and we could see from the first few minutes there exactly why Yasmin & Zach chose it for their wedding day. They said they had loved it from the moment they saw it, and with their Beauty and the Beast theme, it was the perfect fit.
We started the morning with Yasmin getting ready with her bridesmaids in one of the upper rooms. The light in that room was stunning. Katie had fun photographing the goings on the preparations while I went to see Zach. Also, how the team of florists and venue stylists were transforming the great hall for the wedding ceremony.
The hall looked stunning, with an aisle lined with red roses on lanterns, a huge floral archway for Yasmin to walk through on her way up the aisle. As guests started to arrive and the excitement grew, the great hall filled and awaited Yasmin’s entrance.
Yasmin & Zach had a surprise for their guests - the rings were delivered down the aisle by a beautiful snowy owl. After the ceremony, guests were invited outside for a bird-of-prey display, with expert handlers flying beautiful birds including a Peregrin falcon.
We took Yasmin and Zach around the vast grounds of Peckforton castle for some couples photos. This part of the day is amazing, as it’s a chance to spend some quality time with each other just after you’re married. We went down to the gatehouse, walked through the woods, and back up to the drawbridge. The light was beautiful, and we loved spending a few minutes photographing in these conditions.
We headed back in to the great hall, which had been transformed for the wedding party. After Yasmin & Zach’s first dance, we couldn’t resist a couple of night time portraits with the in this wonderful place. The sky was dramatic, and the castle was lit up in beautiful colours. So it was the perfect opportunity to use some lights of our own to accentuate the beauty and drama of this wonderful place.
