Back on a rather changeable April day I had the pleasure of recording a rather wonderful couple get married at a beautiful Church, St Matthews in Buckley in Deeside North Wales and then follow them onto one of the finest venues in North Wales the stunning Ruthin Castle. And here is their wedding story in pictures.
One from in the evening, it rained heavily and the clouds are just beginning to lift ro reveal an inky darkness. Conditions like this can make for excellent wedding photographs. And just look how in love the Nicola and Edmund are. The Castle is a magnificent and imposing background to the wedding photo.
St Matthews Church in Buckley, North Wales. A stunning structure. The guys can be seen waiting by the door way. And the is even a bit of blue sky. The blue sky was there to deceive as the rain was coming. Lots of it!
The Reverend gives last minute advice and instructions to a nervous looking Groom and Best Man against the backdrop of the lovely Church.
Let have a bit of Black and White for the service. I think the interior looks even better with the lack of colour.
A magical doorway to walk through on the way to a new life together. Mr and Mrs.
How beautiful is the car, I think it a Bentley. It looks like a film star! I love the colour and it a perfect way to be transported to the Castle.
A Ruthin Castle and out the rain.
A beautiful Bride, a magical staircase and some gorgeous window light owe yes and a Groom. Ruthin Castle is a top wedding venue.
It did stop raining, and even the Peacock wants a peek at what is going on. How many can you count? Nicola dress is beautiful
A very proud Groom on the biggest of days. He is looking very dapper!
How is this room for a big of royal elegance. Fit for a king and queen. I love the Grande Hall of Ruthin Castle. It a beautiful setting with huge bay windows casting gorgeous light over the opulent interior.
One for above the fire maybe? Out at night with several lights, lighting up the castle and lighting up the couple. It was pitch black out there!!
Night photography has it’ advantages. You can light up what you want and let bits you don’t vanish into the shadows, They are actually standing in-front of a car park, in daylight this angle showing the front of the Castle would of been a no no, but at night as if by magic the cars have gone.
And back in the garden to try and catch a bit of light from the setting sun.
And now back to the beginning with the Pageboys double checking their duties.
The long wait.
Well that was a fantastic wedding and a pleasure to be employed to photograph such a fine day. Ruthin must be one of the top 5 Wedding venues in Wales and it was fantastic working there again. To my surprise they even had one of my photographs on the main cover of the broacher as well as several inside. It is always nice to be recommended by such a fine venue.
Thank you Edmund and Nicola and have a wonderful life together, it was a privilege to spend the biggest day of your life with you. Well most of it!!
