Farnham Castle Wedding Photography – Gee and Stephanie
Farnham Castle in Surrey is a gorgeous destination. It’s one that I’ve experienced before, and I always look forward to returning there. This was Stephanie and Gee’s beautiful wedding – a meeting of England and Portugal, which featured some very English weather!
It’s testament to the fantastic venue that the rain didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits or detract from this brilliant wedding. Farnham Castle is a gorgeous Norman building dating back to the 11th century, and was lovingly refurbished in 2012. The staff here are absolutely superb, and really helped to make it such a memorable day for the happy couple.
I was privileged to be able to capture most of the day, from the two of them getting ready for the ceremony right through to the evening frolics. There is something very special about the ritual of the bride getting ready to be unveiled, and Stephanie certainly looked beautiful when she arrived for the ceremony. I wanted to capture these moments with family and friends, and got some simple but intimate shots.
With the rain keeping us down to just five minutes outside, we were still able to pull off some very modern and dramatic portraits, in keeping with Stephanie and Gee’s personal style. In the end, the shots worked wonderfully against a backdrop of the old, rustic out-building with a striking blue door.
The reception was wonderful and original – everyone dancing in a ‘silent disco’ which lent itself beautifully to some playful shots of family, young and old, getting involved and dancing the night away! It was a fantastic day, and I felt very lucky to have been a part of it. Thanks again to the fantastic staff at Farnham Castle, who went above and beyond to help Stephanie and Gee have a day they’ll never forget.
