Clearwell Castle Wedding Photography in May for Zoe and Mark. They had approached me a while back about photographing their wedding in the relaxed and unobtrusive way wedding photojournalists like myself work. Clearwell Castle, though relatively close, and a relatively popular wedding venue is one that I had never worked at before so it was lovely to get an opportunity to shoot this wedding for Zoe and Mark.
Sadly the weather was not great, which meant the guests didn’t really enjoy much of the lovely gardens Clearwell has. I was only at the wedding for a short period of time – enough to capture some bridal prep, the ceremony and some speeches before disappearing off into the wet Gloucestershire evening.
I know Zoe and Mark had been working hard planning this wedding and it was wonderful to see so many people there really enjoying themselves (despite the weather). The ceremony itself was gorgeous of course, and the wedding breakfast looked so lovely I had to get a shot of it being delivered to the tables.
As always, here are a small selection of my favourites from the day. Remember, as a documentary wedding photographer I do not move, touch, direct or orchestrate anything so all these images are shot as genuine moments from the wedding day. It is often possible to get detail shots, such as shoes etc within context – even with reportage wedding photography.
