Weddings at Hazlewood Castle near York

On Friday I attended the wedding blessing of Lee and Keeley at Hazlewood Castle near York. At their recent pre-wedding photo shoot Lee and Keeley had been very relaxed and laid back which was exactly the same state we found Keeley in as we joined her for some photographs as she prepared for the wedding. With make up and hair almost complete a couple of hours before the wedding ceremony Keeley knew she had plenty of time and was very chilled, this in turn allowed us to take some great informal photographs before the blessing taking place in the chapel.

Lee had also arrived early and was ready for the photographs ahead of schedule, at this point you may get the feeling that it’s going too well and timings will go astray as the wedding day progresses, thankfully they didn’t! With Keeley ready and very punctual guests we were in the chapel for the wedding blessing at exactly 1.30 as planned. During the blessing ceremony in St Leonard’s chapel father Ian allows photography from the front and back which meant that Alex was able to shoot from the balcony whilst I was at the front to the side of the alter so covering both angles of the ceremony.

With the sun shining guests were able to enjoy the drinks reception outside whilst I quickly completed the formal photos allowing allowing us plenty of time to shoot candid and informal photographs of the Lee and Keeley and their wedding guests.

Following the wedding breakfast Keeley was keen to try a photo she’d seen from one of my workshops, hats off to her for managing to get into position in her wedding dress and shoes, the photograph will make a superb large image for their wedding album. We were also lucky with a freshly harvested cornfield complete with round bales, which under the afternoon sun was just crying out for a bride and groom!

The following selection of wedding photographs from lee and Keeley’s wedding at Hazlewood Castle include many we played on the large screen during their evening reception.
