Stunning Portraits

Depending on the time of year it’s also advisable to set aside some time for photographs after the wedding breakfast. Some of our favourite images have been taken during the illustrious ‘golden hour’. When it comes to summer weddings sunset falls after the meal. Only around 15 minutes away from guests is needed to take the most beautiful images. An experienced wedding photographer will have a schedule in mind for making the most of different locations at different times of the day. With a venue as large as Allerton Castle it’s so important to choose an experienced wedding photographer.

Morning Preparation Photos

At Allerton Castle the team take a huge amount of pride in the service they provide their engaged couples and guests. The whole day is thought out and planned meticulously to make each part of the wedding experience magical. Brides are invited to get ready at the Palace Suite with a glass or two of champagne. Choosing a good location for bridal preparation is imperative to get the best photos. The preparation space at Allerton Castle is a fantastic backdrop to photos. We have put together a guide for brides to help them get the best bridal preparation pictures. Grooms are not left out at the castle! The groom and their groomsmen are invited to enjoy the billiard room. Nothing quashes pre wedding nerves like a game or two. Having the bride and groom in the same place for preparation has some practical benefits too. Often grooms forgo preparation photographs so that the brides moments can be captured. If the wedding isn’t large enough to demand a second photographer the groom often doesn’t any professional photos taken. With preparation all at one location wedding photographers can quickly move between the bride and groom ensuring all important moments are documented.

The grandest place at the Castle to say your vows is the Great Hall. Brides feel like a princess for the day when they descend down the staircase to walk down the aisle. Upon meeting the groom at the alter the couple say their vows beneath a 70 ft hammer beam ceiling. There is nowhere at Allerton Castle grander for wedding photos.

Natural Photos At The Castle

After the ceremony guests are invited out into the memorial garden for the drinks reception. The moments shortly after the wedding ceremony are full of joy and emotion. We capture this part of the day in an unobtrusive and natural style. The best photographs are often taken without the subjects knowledge at all. It’s these images which couples often treasure the most. The gardens at Allerton Castle serve as a beautiful backdrop for natural wedding photography. Our award-winning photography is highly sought after due to our unique blend of natural style and bright editing. This works really well at castle venues. Older buildings are naturally quite dark.
