Winter Wedding at Hazlewood Castle

August 05, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Last December I had the privilege of photographing the marriage of Steve and Gemma at the magnificent Hazlewood Castle.  The building has been used for a variety of purposes over the years, including a maternity hospital and religious retreat, but was converted to a hotel in the 90s, retaining many of the original features.  It is a magnificent venue with some great features, grounds and views across the fields.

Winter weddings provide many challenges.  Because of the length of the day, light levels can be low, the weather can be wet, cold, even snowing.  All these provide challenges, not just for the photographer, but also for the venue and the bride.  Gemma and Steve had stayed at the venue the night before (in separate rooms, of course!) so in the worst case scenario, everything could have been done inside.  As it turned out, the rain stayed away, and although it was chilly, Gemma and Steve were still happy to head outside for some shots in the lovely grounds.

For Steve and his groomsmen, the day started with quad biking and archery whilst Gemma and bridesmaids were having hair and makeup done.  A civil ceremony in the Castle was followed by a blessing in the chapel adjacent to the castle, after which everyone headed to the great hall for the wedding breakfast.  This was followed by dancing late into the night.  It was a fabulous day, with plenty of laughs and a few tears.  Here are just a few of the photos from the day
