This is one of our favourite wedding venues to photograph at; Ruthin Castle, in North Wales; with Ceri and Glenn.. They had their wedding ceremony at the beautiful church of St Mary in Halkyn, North Wales, with its beautiful views over the North Sea. Glenn got ready at the Castle, while Ceri arrived in the VW Camper from Rhes-y-Cae, narrowly avoiding the rain shower, and looked dazzling. They had a travel theme reception back at Ruthin Castle and unusually set the speeches between the starter and main. It worked well and brought them out just in time to catch the last few rays of a sunset for some cool evening shots.

Men’s wedding suits

The guys wore a simple blue 3 piece suit, which is a timeless and classic choice and I love it as this suits everyone. It was finished off with ivory pocket squares, a simple ivory tie and an orange lily as the button hole.

Wedding Dress

Diamante detailing to the top of the front and back of the dress beautifully accents the sweetheart neckline of the wedding dress. A breathtaking back with cut out detail and A line skirt with ruched detailing all over the dress, coupled with a diamante detailing to the hip of the skirt, completed the look of the dress and tied everything in. The bride looked incredible in the dress and it suited her perfectly.

Wedding Ceremony venue

The church in Halkyn was chosen as the ceremony venue which is a medium sized church making it feel a more intimate and warm ceremony. After the ceremony guests lined up for a bubble line rather than confetti which everyone adored.

Wedding Reception

If you have never been to Ruthin Castle before it is one to put on your bucket list. It is steeped in History with Henry the VIII having been one of its guests. You will find it in Ruthin, North Wales. My favourite part of Ruthin Castle must be the entrance. When you arrive to the two lions at the entrance you will know why, they look spectacular and set the scene for the venue.  Inside there are coats of armour and wood paneling and stunning artwork as you would imagine in a castle. The reception room is beautiful light for a castle with huge windows and lined with grand mirrors and chandeliers making it the perfect room for a fairytale wedding.

Wedding Flowers

Flowers were kept to a minimum which I adored as I did not feel this venue needed that many. Simple lilies made up the bride’s bouquet with an ivory Lilly for the bridesmaids to hold.

Brides Wedding hair

The hair was placed up and set with a diamante clip. Ideal for the style wedding dress Ceri had chosen to show off the picturesque diamante top part to the dress.

Tech bit

Jason was lucky enough to get a sunset at this wedding and made use of that with off camera flash. Each couple was  individually lit while the camera steadied on a tripod and a photo would be taken with each couple lit by flash and then these images were merged together to create the bridal party sunset shot you see.
