Tracey & Ross celebrated their wedding at one of our favourite venues, Berkeley Castle, an amazing castle steeped in history, overlooking the Severn and the Welsh Borders. First stop was Tortworth Court where both the bride and groom were getting ready. Chris photographed the groom’s party, which included a quick visit to the bar and later some photos on the gun terrace at the castle. Meanwhile, I was kept entertained by the four bridesmaids who were re-enacting a scene from ‘Blue Peter’ making a stand for the confetti cones. They seemed to use everything except ‘sticky backed plastic’, a great job girls! Tracey wore a stunning satin gown from The Couture Gallery in Notting Hill, she looked amazing and arrived at the castle with her Dad in a 1930’s Royale Drophead. The fairytale ceremony was held in the Great Hall with its beautiful stained glass windows and vaulted ceiling. We then whisked Tracey & Ross off around the gardens for some informal photos by the fountain and lily pond. We made full use of the stone steps and balustrade for relaxed shots of the whole bridal party. Bryn (the pageboy) had a whole step to himself, lucky him! After the wedding breakfast, friends and family were served coffee in the courtyard, the sun had put in a late appearance which made the castle glow pink in the sunset, very romantic. We hope you enjoy looking at a few of our favourite images.
