Bridgnorth Castle Garden Wedding – Rachel & John

Dec 19, 2017

Rachel & John invited a whopping 220 guests to share in their wedding day. Friends and family from all over came to celebrate this pair’s love and it was apparent this had been a long time coming by the whooping and cheering from the crowd as Rachel and John kissed as husband and wife for the first time.

With a beautiful and emotional ceremony at a Baptist church in Bridgnorth complete with professional gospel singer Geraldine Luce and followed by laid back drinks and cake in the local Castle Grounds; a public space that is meticulously maintained with stunning gardens, then onto the local rugby club for their marquee reception.

I am a little bit obsessed by Rachel’s stunning dress – it’s from To Have & To Hold in Kidderminster. Other suppliers included Sophies in Melton Mowbray for the bouquets, their friend Christine Bartlett for the church flowers and friend Jenny Riches for the flowers in the marquee – how amazing to have such talented people as friends!

Here’s a little handful of their gorgeous wedding…

PS. I had the wonderful Alice Webb on board with me as a second shooter – she’s a newbie but watch out for her, she’s blooming marvellous!

When I’m not shooting people in love you can find me at home, probably drinking too much coffee, eating cake and watching a film. My husband and I hold a lot of our conversations in film quotes. We’re kind of film geeks. After ten years of photographing almost 200 couples who love the bones of each other, I’m still in love with weddings and I would love to hear more about yours.
