Amy was the wedding photographer at Peckforton Castle, Cheshire, UK for the wedding of Matt & Charlie.
The setting; a beautiful medieval castle. The date; New Year’s Eve 2008. Could it get any more romantic?! I travelled to Cheshire for New Year for this fabulous occasion as a sole wedding photographer – a candle-lit castle, a foggy winter’s day and the groom is a photographer – no pressure then! However, the results are fabulous thanks to Matt & Charlie for giving me time, to Chris the usher for helping me with my video light and to Ray the toastmaster for getting all of the right people in the right places for the groups. We are at Peckforton Castle again later this year and are really looking forward to it. On with the images:
It really was a freezing cold day: my car read -4 degrees when I arrived and when I left and I don’t think it got any warmer all day!
Meanwhile, Charlie was going from being gorgeous to even more gorgeous:
Beautiful detail in the dress:
Since I was on my own, I started off photographing the ceremony at the front near to the couple but half-way through slipped out and crept up to the balcony for a different angle:
The fog didn’t lift all day, which made for some wonderfully atmospheric shots:
Despite not feeling too well, Charlie still managed to laugh all day:
Love this! Off-camera flash is ace!
Without the flash the results are totally different which made for a great variety of shots:
A lovely moment captured during the speeches:
Thanks Chris – you held the video light in exactly the right place for this shot:
You’ve got your album to look forward to when you get back from your honeymoon folks – it’s looking amazing. Happy New Year again! -AmyGoogle+
