Cheshire Wedding Photographer // Vickie & Paul
As a wedding photographer in Cheshire, there are so many beautiful venues to shoot at and when Paul and Vickie got in touch to say they were getting married at Peckforton Castle where I hadn’t shot for in 5 years, I was excited to say the least, after all who doesn’t want to shoot in a castle! Paul and Vickie got married in the grand room, elegantly decked out in white flowers with touches of pink.
Peckforton, which is in Tarporley, Cheshire is a relatively new castle as castles go, built in 1842 it was so extravagant that it wasn’t finished until 1851 and the extravagance certainly lends itself to weddings. Vickie walked down the aisle to a harp playing in a gorgeous lace dress, where Paul waited for her in front of the words LOVE. These two tied the knot on the 1-year anniversary of their engagement in Malta and it was a heartfelt, personal ceremony. Pink and white petals lined the aisle and as a Cheshire wedding photographer it was great to capture Vickie and Paul’s wedding in one of the county’s best known venues.
The reception room looked utterly gorgeous, again brimming with white flowers by the brilliant Ian Lloyd who was not only the florist but also the toastmaster. It’s always great as a wedding photographer to work alongside other suppliers who make the day run smoothly and Cheshire is a great place for amazing suppliers!
We strolled around the grounds for a little couple time and then it was time to cut the cake, keeping in with the castle vibe Paul and Vickie used a sword! I love unusual touches like this as it just makes things so much more individual to the couple. Their first dance was danced to “All of me” by John Legend. All in all, it was a great day and I’m so lucky to have venues like this one on my doorstep.
