Allerton Castle wedding photographer

Adrian and Amanda were married in a civil wedding ceremony at Allerton Castle, North Yorkshire on Sunday.

Occasionally a bride and groom will enquire about my availability  to photograph their wedding and if they live out of the area may book from the work they have seen on my website and here on the blog, meeting up closer to the wedding day to finalise their wedding photography package and discuss the photographs for the big day.

Living in Greece and seldom visiting the UK meant that for Adrian and Amanda our first opportunity to meet was on the day of the wedding itself. Thanks to numerous emails we’d managed to discuss styles and plan the formal photographs in good time.

Following bridal preparation photos we joined the guests in Allerton Castle’s Great Hall for the wedding ceremony. With an 80ft ceiling, viewing gallery and grand staircase there can be few wedding venues to match the grandeur of Allerton Castle. Even better that the weather was on side and we were then able to also head outside for the drinks reception and photographs using the rear terraces and memorial garden.

The weather had been mixed most of the day which meant a smattering of high cloud, perfect as dusk drew near for a stunning sunset. The sunset photographs were followed by a firework display with all the wedding guests assembled on th

e front lawn just after 10PM.

The following wedding photographs include many of the ones we had playing on our big screen during Adrian and Amanda’s evening wedding reception.

As the Dakota passed overhead the crew in the cockpit were waving at the guests, so it was no surprise that a minute later the aircraft was back for a second flypast, this time with the rear crew door open and a member of aircrew leaning out the back waving.Allerton Castle wedding photographerAllerton Castle wedding photographer Allerton Castle wedding photographerAllerton Castle wedding photographerAllerton Castle wedding photographerAllerton Castle wedding photographerAllerton Castle wedding photographerAllerton-Castle-at-night
