This gorgeous late afternoon Clearwell Castle Wedding Gloucestershire for Julia and Oliver is such a treat to the eyes. Clearwell Castle is a stunning wedding venue and we love to photograph weddings there. Julia, is our third Canadian bride in three warm, Summer weeks last June! She looks absolutely amazing in her embroidered lace dress. Julia and Oliver travelled to the Forest of Dean to proclaim their marriage vows in front of family and friends. Although the real stars of the day are their handsome little boy Caiden – and a Pug called Elmo!
It’s a relatively small wedding party of just over 40 that gathered on a late Summer afternoon. Guests arrived from Dubai, Canada, Scotland and Italy, Oliver and Julia had met whilst working there. Everything about this wedding is so well thought out. Oliver’s brother-in-law performed the ceremony, next came our chance to take photographs in the beautiful evening light. Meantime wedding guests were served delicious canapés, cocktails and fine champagne by Lesia and her excellent staff. Guests were also treated to very fine music by Chloe and Sean from Elegant Entertainment. They played beautifully throughout the ceremony and cocktail hour.
The wedding speeches took place in the legendary cellar studio, where many great rock bands of the ’70s recorded. The big surprise of the night was when we were treated to a fantastic choreographed first dance. Best of all, it was followed by a huge variety of delicious Indian curries! We very much look forward to our next visit to Clearwell Castle – in three weeks time!
