I’d waited a long time to get a shoot at Peckforton Castle. I’d heard of it, seen other Cheshire wedding photographers’ output from it, but somehow it was just passing me by. So I was hugely delighted when Rachel and Chris booked me to photograph their wedding.
Peckforton Castle is a truly amazing place. It’s not really a castle – it was built in 1844 for the 1st Baron Tollemache. Now owned by the Naylor family, it’s been used as a set for Doctor Who as well as numerous other TV appearances. But it’s as a wedding venue that it really comes into its own. Like many other grand wedding venues, it’s filled with opportunity for photographic loveliness and I can’t wait to shoot there again.
