Clearwell Castle Wedding Photos

Time to show a few more photos from my recent winter wedding at Clearwell Castle, Gloucestershire.  But first a did you know fact - last year Clearwell Castle held 260 weddings - FACT.  I know, that's remarkable huh!

With my Guinness Book Of Wedding Records out the way, onto the details about Stuart and Lauren's wedding day itself.  I'd met Lauren in 2008 at her brother-in-laws wedding in Tetbury at The Great Tythe Barn.  I was the photographer and to all intensive purposes at the time of meeting she was the child minder to her 'other' brother-in-laws children.  So, you get the idea, I bumped into her at a wedding.  Anyhow, fast forward a few years and here I was shooting her wedding - how cool is that.  I love recommendations, and it's always nice to meet familiar faces at the wedding......and in this case I found out my previous clients 'Matt & Anne' are expecting too - so congratulations!

So here we have it, an exclusive insiders view to the fabulous wedding of Stuart and Lauren at Clearwell Castle.  DON'T FORGET to click 'READ MORE' at the bottom of this post, to take you deep inside the world of documentary wedding photography.  Ahhh...ok, really just to read the rest.

Clearwell Castle - or at least a tree with sign hanging from it.  Yep, it's winter folks....today will be a fair few black and white photos, mixed with a splash of colour.  It's all about light, emotion and composition this week.

Lauren looks on from the Castel hideaway (that is the bridal suite) as guests arrive and bridesmaids walk across the car park in pjyamas and dressing gowns - stylish!

"ummm, nice wedding dress".....meanwhile the pyjama wearing bridesmaids have arrived for make-up duty.

The blusher brush gets 'em every time.

I love this shot - why?  Check out the under age drinker with her 'imaginary' champagne - classic.

I also love this photo on the left.  It's got a whole page to itself in their wedding album design too.

I'll bet the boys aren't having this much fun - even putting a necklace on is a laugh.  Note: bridesmaids 'correctly' dressed now and checking out Laurens booty.

I've not seen wedding flowers with long stems like this before.  Or at least not long stems and such a delicate bouquet.  OK, I've just re-read that back and it does sound a little camp.....honestly I'm all man, just mixed up in the female wedding world.

Yep, that'll be inside at Clearwell Castle set ready for the wedding ceremony.  Just follow the red strip of carpet if you're unsure where to go.

My little cowboy

Barney turned two in late January and had the best ever gift from his Auntie Charile - a cowboy outfit.  OK, so I should be clear about this, he didn't actually think it was the greatest gift ever and infact didn't want to wear it at first.  (Safe to say though, Daisy popped it straight on....shes' always first in line for fancy dress).  It wasn't so much that it's the best gift ever for Barney therefore, but actually myself - as I apparently had a similar costume myself as a boy, and wore it every day.  So much so, the trousers wore out and my mum had to make a new pair.  Ahhh the good old days.....it just looks wrong if I dress up now :-)

Anyhow.........blurb over, my point is, he finally decided this week it was time to slip into something a little more wild west.  Better still he teamed the outfit with his 'personalised' hobby horse (thank you Meg).

I should add too, I've gone super-size on blog images now (you've probably noticed that right?).  Hopefully it still works for you the viewers.  Blog posts will also have a 'Read More' tab, so watch out for this on many of the of weddings.

You looking at me partner?
