It’s almost winter, the last traces of Autumn have disappeared and the temperature is dropping like a stone. On the plus side the light is crisp and clean and the fact that it’s so cold makes you work twice as hard and twice as fast – no pressure then as I joined Stuart and Rachel at Hazlewood castle for their wedding on Friday.

I’d met up with Stuart and Rachel a few weeks ago for their pre-wedding shoot at Hazlewood Castle where today they would be marrying. An intimate civil wedding ceremony in the Victoria Room was followed later in the day by a blessing in the Chapel of St Leonard’s adjacent to the castle.

Hazlewood Castle’s south facing exterior offers some great opportunities for working with the light and the low winter sun added a further bonus on Friday as we quickly took the formal photographs before leaving us alone with Stuart and Rachel for some photographs of just the two of them around the grounds of Hazlewood Castle on their wedding day.

Just before the evening reception started we snuck outside for some photos after dark utilising the well lit exterior and features of the castle before Stuart and Rachel took to the floor for their first dance.

The following wedding photographs from Stuart and Rachel’s wedding day at Hazlewood Castle were featured on their big screen display during the evening reception.
