When I met Jack and Luisa last year I was immidaitly excited about the idea of their Herefordshire Eastnor Castle wedding on New Years eve, and before I knew it Christmas has passed and I was packing my gear for an awesome castle wedding.
The morning of this wedding was perfect, crisp and cool without rain, great for a winter wedding, I arrived a bit before the bridal party did so I could have a walk in the bounds of the castle and get a few establishing shots, before long it was time for drinks and getting ready.
One thing thats great about Eastnor Castle is that you can look in almost any direction and see incredible paintings, taxidermy and suits of armour adoring the walls, its great to see people's heads go up to see the ceiling in the great hall, a really special place to get married.
The ceremony was in the afternoon followed by drinks and canapés, we took this time to grab a few shots of the couple and a few family photographs too, before long it was onto a great meal and some really cracking speeches.
The night rolled in and the party began, there were some awesome moves being thrown out on the dance floor with music by Pete Stead DJ, then there was 'grog', a traditional Fijian drink made of tree bark, more dancing and finally as the clock tolled midnight Auld Land Syne and sparklers outside.
This wedding was shot on my trusty Fuji XE-2's with 18, 35 and 56mm lenses as well as the Fuji X100, the Nissin Flash made an appearance too for the dancing shots and I can safely say the F1.2 of the 56mm came incredibly useful inside the castle.
Many thanks go out to Jack and Luisa for letting me be there and being so welcoming, it really was a spectacular wedding, and everything went perfectly [apart from a very small centrepiece fire incident].
