Castle-240

Last week I was lucky enough to arrange a bridal shoot at the amazing Warwick Castle.

I’m one of the castle’s recommended wedding photographers so when I asked the lovely Katie Hill at the castle about doing the shoot, she was more than helpful, even allowing us to shoot long after the public had to leave the venue.

On top of that we had help from top wedding suppliers for dresses and flowers…

*** Dresses from The Bridal Boutique in Warwick ***

*** Flowers from The Blossom Tree ***

Then we just needed some models.

I was looking for two girls who would bring completely different looks to the shoot. Steph, was the naturally pretty, English rose. And then there was Laura!

I’d always wanted to shoot a girl in a wedding dress who was heavily tattooed, with a cool, edgy look and when my friend Matt suggested Laura, I knew we had our girl.

So, Part 1 of the shoot features Laura. I’ll post Steph’s pictures tomorrow…

    I’d marry Laura right now – she’s gorgeous! Fantastic, fun pictures too. Everything looks amazing. I love how the atmosphere of these goes from romantic to funny to cheeky to dramatic – think the shots with the ivy vines(?) are my favourites. Wow.
