Traditional ceremony

Knowing that everyone’s dream wedding is different the team at Eastnor Castle provide many options for wedding ceremonies. Such an emotional and significant part of the wedding day it’s important to get the ceremony just right. If couples would like a traditional church wedding ceremony they suggest the local village church. The iddiilic village of Eastnor is a stunning place for a traditional ceremony. The beautiful church looks stunning in wedding pictures.

Outdoor ceremony photos

Couples who wish to have a less traditional ceremony are also welcome at Eastnor. Our favourite type of ceremony are those held outdoors. An outdoor ceremony presents the most gorgeous setting for wedding pictures. Some of the best photographs from the day are captured during the ceremony when emotions are at their highest. When outdoors the quality of light is always better than when inside. Wedding photographers love to capture the ceremony outdoors at Eastnor Castle. The setting is simply beautiful.

Opulent interiors

Another option for engaged couples is a humanist ceremony. Any room of the castle can be chosen, or the outdoors if weather permits. The team at Easton Castle are incredibly flexible and allow couples to choose whatever works best for them. When deciding upon the venue couples are invited to share their vision of the day and the team work tirelessly to achieve their dream. A fantastic indoor spot for the ceremony is the gothic drawing room. Designed by famed architect Augustus Pugin the room is incredibly opulent. Large windows look out over the lake and let natural light flood the room. Fantastic for photos of the wedding ceremony.

When it comes to wedding photography Eastnor Castle is one of the best castle venues in the UK. There are so many opportunities for stunning images to be taken at every turn. The grounds are huge and the couple have access to everything within. Majestic Red Deer roam the 300 acre parkland. Water glistens off the stunning lake.

We recommend with a venue of this magnitude to plan wedding photography carefully into the day. Around 15 – 30 minutes is required to capture portraits of the couple. More time may be beneficial if the newlyweds want to venture further into the castle grounds. Shane always pre plans when the most opportune times of the day are to whisk the couple away. For the most part Shane will take natural images of the couple and guests. Wedding photography is at it’s best natural and unobtrusive.
