Rachel and Jamie’s wedding was a true fairytale; complete with an impossibly gorgeous couple and castle (yes, a real castle!). This time the princess was in no need of being rescued by her prince charming. The grounds of the castle and the love in the air created an ethereal atmosphere, allowing the romantic yet daring side of this royal couple to take center stage. Our bride and groom chose a wedding venue that really allowed their personalities to shine, Warwick Castle Wedding Venue!
We met the lovely couple at a wedding show and thereafter exchanged a few emails. We were delighted when they told us that we had been chosen as their photographers!
After a couple of months, we met again a few days before the wedding to know more about the couple. We also explored the grounds of Warwick Castle together and after being completely dazzled by this incredible venue.
With all the perfect places to photograph inside and outside the castle, it was hard to choose one over another. There are so many beautiful towers and ramparts, centuries of fascinating architecture, a river running alongside the castle with bridges, the fountain, incredible gardens and the lovely grounds provide a perfect place to capture the beauty of Warwick Castle in the background.
A special mention goes to the most iconic element of this majestic castle, the stunning peacocks that roam freely in their garden home. If only we could get them to pose for our pictures as freely as they roam about!
With no lack of perfect spots to photograph Rachel and Jamie, you can imagine how excited we were for their special day!
The Wedding day
Finally, the day arrived and can you believe that one of the peacocks posed for a photo, complete with his iridescent tail fully opened?! It’s not every day that you see peacocks in wedding photos and we just loved it!
Inside the castle, the décor was a royal showcase of chandeliers, paintings and sculptures from the medieval era! All of which contributed to the tone of their wedding day.
The State Dining Room held the ceremony; the exact room in which George IV, Edward VII, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert had all dined before! A place of real history to celebrate the union of this truly royal couple!
While the majesty of the castle is unforgettable, it didn’t in any way outshine the bride and groom. Jamie’s spontaneity on the day and Rachel’s sweet and loving personality shone through in every moment. They made certain that everyone had an unforgettable day.
We could have literally spent hours in the gardens photographing the couple, if it weren’t for the guests waiting patiently to greet them!
In the end of the night we photographed Rachel and Jamie in front of the castle’s towers with the clear view of the stars shining brightly in the night sky.
These are the moments we truly love; we were able to use our cameras to create pieces of art that will become a royal piece of history not only for Warwick Castle but for the beautiful couple. We wish Rachel and Jamie a lifetime of love and happiness. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your unforgettable day.
