After much planning and organising, the day had finally arrived for Sarah & Kostas’ beautiful winter wedding at Lulworth Castle. It really just doesn’t seem long ago that we were all discussing and planning the days events over a cup of tea at our kitchen table. But, as always, time marches on and the months just seemed to fly by!
Both Sarah & Kostas were getting ready at Lulworth Cove in Dorset which is just 5 minutes away from Lulworth Castle. The wedding ceremony was held in the beautiful St Mary’s Chapel which is in the Castle grounds with the reception in Lulworth Castle itself.
After covering the preparations we made our way to the Chapel to set up our equipment. We were shooting our classic stills but also our captured moments movie during the day. As you can imagine, to create this level of coverage with a very light touch is a complex task, but we always absolutely insist on having as little impact on the day as possible. However it seems all our hard work over the years has paid off as we were granted permission to shoot in multiple locations, as we saw fit, not only within the Castle but also within the Chapel. It was truly an honour to be given this level of flexibility to bring our vision for Sarah & Kostas’ day to life and we are very grateful to the Luworth Estate and Father Michael for their support.
After a beautiful ceremony we arranged the guests into a confetti line before everyone headed into the Castle to warm up with hot drinks and refreshments.
We quickly organised all the family group pictures as well as Sarah & Kostas wedding portraits and had these completed before everyone sat down for the wedding breakfast. This was important because you lose the light rapidly in the winter and we prefer natural light for portraits.
The catering was by Beales Gourmet and, as always, it was well organised and of the highest quality. Matt was on hand throughout the day to ensure everything food related ran smoothly and on time. The beautiful flower arrangements in both the Chapel and Castle were provided by Jennifer Poynter.
We had a short break during the wedding breakfast before setting up and organising our cameras for the speeches. It was wonderful to record such emotion from tears of joy and laughter to tear-jerking moments and sentiments that are priceless and will stay in many peoples hearts forever.
Here is a very small selection of some of our work from the day.
Many thanks to Sarah, Kostas and their family for asking us to cover their most special day and also to everyone who supported us during the day to help make our work possible.
Special thanks to Sarah (Lulworths wedding planner) for her help during the day.
