Rowton Castle wedding Photography – Laura and Pete
Back in the spring I was presented with a challenge… to shot the wedding of my good friend and fellow wedding professional Laura, from Vision wave wedding videography. Her and husband to be Pete had booked the imposing Rowton Castle for their wedding celebrations, a venue I’ve worked at a number of times before.
Rowton Castle, a 17th century listed building, is situated in the heart of the Shropshire countryside and is up there with some of the best wedding venues in the county. A magnificent building and extensive landscaped grounds make Rowton an excellent choice for weddings all year round.
I wasn’t the only one of Laura’s friends along for the ride, I was once again accompanied by Jack from Up close Wedding videography who was filming the day. Although the pressure was on it was a great honour to be asked to shoot the day for Laura and Pete, and always a pleasure to work alongside Jack.
Wedding ceremonies at Rowton Castle
Laura looked amazing and when her dad saw her in the dress for the first time he obviously agreed. I always love capturing the moment a dad see’s his little girl in the wedding dress but Laura’s dad really raised the bar with his reaction. It was soon time to head down the ceremony room and the emotion continued. Even Pete could barely contain himself as Laura made her way down the isle.
Harry Potter themed wedding
Laura did warn me that there would be a Harry Potter theme going on, she even threatened to make me read the books before the big day. Fortunately the guys didn’t turn up wearing invisibility cloaks or flying on broomsticks but instead very tastefully incorporated the theme into the table decorations and other details. I’m not a great fan of Harry Potter ad even thought it was quite cool, especially cutting the cake with a sword…swords are always cool!
If you’re planning a wedding at Rowton castle, or anywhere else for that matter, or even a Harry potter themed wedding i would love to hear from you to have a chat about the day. Please do get in touch so I can take to you more about my relaxed style of wedding photography.
