Natalie & Bernard are a fantastic couple, living in the heart of Manchester. Bernie’s an avid United fan (Top marks straight away) and Natalie and her whole family support the Red side of Merseyside. So there were lots of camaraderie during the speeches as you can imagine.
This was our first wedding at Peckforton Castle and what a great venue it is. A proper winter wedding at the beginning of December and only a few weeks before the day, I was unsure whether there would be snow on the ground or not.
I always advise our clients when booking a late autumn or winter wedding to have the ceremony as early as possible, leaving enough daylight for capturing beautiful images. This is so true for weddings at Peckforton Castle and similar venues. On winter days, when the sun is low in the sky, the amount of light inside is dramatically reduced. That said, we knew this would be the case and our preparations paid off!
Many brides dream of far away shores, a sun drenched beach in some exotic location, their wedding vows being pledged in front of a select number of friends and family. And why not?
Emma and Tom were winners of one of our wedding fayre engagement shoots. They are getting married in the summer of next year at the beautiful Royal College of Physicians, Edinburgh. As two banking professionals living in Castlefield, Manchester they decided what better place to have their pre-wedding shoot. It seems lately that every pre-wedding shoot in Manchester was falling foul of our great weather and despite being in the middle of summer it was another grey and wet day.
I’m really looking forward to Natalie and Bernie’s wedding this December at the wonderful and recently refurbished Peckforton Castle. I’m hoping for either a lovely crisp winters morning with clear blue skies or for a blanket of fresh undisturbed snow. This is however Britain, so its a lottery when it comes to the weather, as it was in the height of our summer when we took Natalie and Bernie around Manchester’s Northern Quarter for their pre-wedding photo shoot.>/p>
