Peckforton Castle Wedding – Tanjila and Behruz
It is hard to not talk about the venue when a venue is like Peckforton Castle, in Cheshire, England. First I happened to visit the castle with my family, on a Sunday exploration of the areas around our town. A short time later, I received a beautiful message from Tanjila, asking me if I could photograph a wedding there. Could not believe it, out of all the places, this I really wished I had a wedding at. Soon I met Tanjila and Behruz, and we talked about their wedding and details about their big day.
Weddings in January are not particularly easy as the cold weather restricts the available time outside the building to the absolute minimum. However, such a majestic building will always have a treat for the photographer, so indoors is not so bad after all. Once I got to know my way around, it was a piece of cake.
The party absolutely reflected the couple’s character, with live music and lots of fun and games. However, I have chosen the following photos as the ones that contain the most of the day’s feel. Besides, this is what I am after when I photograph a wedding; capture the feel of the day, as well as tell the story. A preview of the pre wedding is here.
