Wedding Photography at Rowton Castle

As a Wedding Photographer, it’s always exciting to work at a wedding venue I’ve never been to before. Rowton Castle, exceeded my expectations and was the perfect location for Tom and Rebecca’s relaxed and romantic Spring wedding. The grounds at Rowton Castle are beautiful, however, if the weather isn’t on your side, the interior is just perfect with plenty of natural light. Great indoor natural light is a huge plus point for your wedding photographer.

Wedding ceremony at Shrewsbury Cathedral

Rebecca got ready with her Bridesmaids in the stylish Tower House Suite at Rowton Castle and then set off to Shrewsbury Cathedral. Tom, along with all of their friends and family were waiting in anticipation for their arrival.

After the wedding ceremony Rebecca & Tom travelled back to Rowton Castle in style, in a white vintage Jaguar. I was able to capture some lovely natural moments of them with the car, whilst they enjoyed a welcome glass of champagne. As a wedding photographer with a natural, relaxed style of photography, I’m always looking for real moments. I loved the fact that the breeze gave us a giggle when it whipped Rebecca’s veil into the air.

Relaxed couple portraits

After having a little time to mingle and chat to their guests, I took Rebecca and Tom for a wander around the grounds of Rowton Castle, to capture some relaxed photos of them as a couple. I like this part of the day to give you a chance to catch your breath and just take a moment to spend some time together. You don’t need to be away from your guests for more than 20 minutes. All of my couples tell me this ends up being one of their favourite parts of the day.
