Thornbury Castle Wedding

Anna and Craig

Anna and Craig’s wedding at the beautiful Thornbury Castle in Avon had all the most important wedding attributes. For example, firstly I can confirm a classic car and a family Jack Russell. Secondly, a lucky day of mild weather during late winter. Thirdly, and above all, an abundance of comedy blow up Star Wars characters.

However, I discovered that was ony the beginning! In addition to photographing the champagne reception upon the groomed castle lawns, I was able to shoot the magician. Most importantly, I noticed that his engagement with guests was impeccable. He had everyone mesmerised with sleight of hand and distracting facial contortions.

My camera’s memory card was now full to the brim with magical images (literally!). Moreover, I shot images of Anna and Craig’s drive past in their classic wedding car. After that, I took them off for classic Thornbury Castle wedding portraits amongst the manicured gardens.

I bore witness to some extremely funny speeches after the wedding breakfast. As a result, a few guests managed to cover themselves in their own champagne!

Evening began to arrive. During the festivitives, I got some snaps of the caricaturist drawing some hilarious family and couple portraits. As night fell, I took the happy couple outside for one last back-lit silhouette portrait in the castle archway. After that, the bride and groom cut the cake and had their first dance. A self-confessed non-dancer, Craig had been taking lessons so as not to embarrass his new bride.

Thank you to Anna and Craig for an incredible day. I can’t wait for my next Thornbury Castle Wedding.
