The Happy Couple…
Firstly, I was thrilled that Nicolette and Darren chose me to be their photographer, especially as I love Farnham Castle – I think it is such a great venue! It’s another bonus being a Farnham wedding photographer and living round the corner! I got recommended to them by some previous wedding clients, which is always nice. Word of mouth and recommendations are so important to my business.
I did a pre-wedding photo shoot for Darren and Nicolette near where they live in London Docklands. This is an area of London I hadn’t explored properly before – it’s lovely! They met on a dating website, and then after they started dating, realised they lived literally round the corner from each other, which is rare in central London!
They chose to have one of my video fusion films for their wedding, which I love making. This includes a second photographer for more photography coverage, and captures little moving images throughout the day to help tell the story and capture the moment.
The Venue… Farnham Castle, Surrey
Farnham castle is full of history and exudes sophistication and style. Therefore it’s no shock that Farnham Castle is recommended as one of the most enchanting wedding venues in England.
The magnificent Great Hall has a choice of ceremony settings for your wedding reception, world-class dining, breath-taking landscaped grounds and accommodation, your every wedding wish is catered for. Recent renovations have brought a classic 21st century style and facilities to the historic Farnham Castle, making it the perfect choice for any couple seeking a truly romantic and special wedding day. Making it easy for me as a Farnham wedding photographer to get some beautiful images.
Wedding theme… Traditional and Classic with a red colour scheme
The bouquets and tables were decorated with red and white roses with delicate beads. Very classic and traditional. The bridesmaids looked absolutely gorgeous in their red dresses!
Nicolette’s dress was so incredible with a real authentic traditional style. This suited Nicolette perfectly, embellished with diamantés and delicate beading.
You may notice in the pictures that they actually had two ceremonies! Nicolette and Darren originally wanted to have a traditional church ceremony, but didn’t want to have multiple venues for their guests to go between. They decided the easiest option was to have the legal ceremony in the Lantern Room, and then have a blessing in the chapel at Farnham Castle.
Highlight of the day
Nicolette and Darren’s day was truly magical. The highlight of the day had to be the amazing DJ, Mr H!
He was more than a DJ, and really engaging! We were all surprised when a lovely lady came in playing an electric violin to all different types of songs, which was all part of the entertainment!
It seemed for the whole of this wedding all the guests were thoroughly enjoying themselves from start to finish, especially with Nicolette’s family in traditional dress!
Here are some photographs to tell the story of their day…
