Over a year has passed since we we’re first asked by Josephine & Blake to photograph their wedding at Lulworth Castle. At the time a year seemed so far way, but as anyone knows who has organised a wedding, a year passes by very quickly indeed. Josephine & Blake created a wonderful day for their friends and family to enjoy. The Wedding Ceremony was held at the St Mary’s Chapel in the grounds of Lulworth Castle. We were delighted when we secured special permission for the second time to shoot from the front of the chapel as well as the back. This is part of our unique style and were very grateful to be trusted to do so.
After a beautiful ceremony we organised a fab confetti line up with the help of the groomsmen before we all headed down to the castle for canapés, a champagne reception and a steel band! Time passed quickly especially when everyone joined in playing with the band which was great fun.
The Wedding Breakfast was held in the Great Hall. The decorations were stunning with Silver Birch saplings on each table resulting in a beautiful indoor forest. As guests entered you could see the delight on their faces as they took in the spectacle. Josephine & Blake entered with a round of applause and smiles of delight which was an experience that they will remember forever! After a excellent meal the speeches took over which were wonderful.
The afternoon was spent enjoying the summer evening on the back lawns and hanging out at the Rum Bar, this bar was specially created & decorated by Blake and Josephine, the rum bar sign was also hand made by the couple. On seeing the spectacle we figured it was right and proper for Blake to get behind the bar to get the party started. As you can imagine Blake became more popular then ever with his new position as bartender! In the end we had to replace him with the official bartender so we could borrow them both for a few moments to shoot some portraits before it got too dark!
The evening party got off to a flying start with a beautiful first dance, a great band and our infamous open fun booth.
A big thank you to everyone who helped us on the day to make this work possible. Special thanks to Josephine & Blake for looking after us so well and investing in our work.
Here is a small selection of images from their wonderful wedding day.
