Castle Hill - Wedding Photographer in Devon
On March 30th 2013 we visited one of the finest wedding venues that Devon has to offer, Castle Hill Estate to photograph Nick and Yvonne's wedding.
They wanted wedding photography that felt captured and observed, picking up on all of the important details and unplanned things that inevitably happen on a wedding day. Nick and Yvonne also wanted to make use of the fantastic grounds surrounding the Castle Hill Estate for some casual & formal photographs.
Before even entering Castle Hill you are overwhelmed by it's elegance and timeless feel. For anyone getting married here it offers superb ceremony rooms, rural views and a wow factor that will really impress your guests.
Wedding preparations were at Yvonnes parents house before travelling to Castle Hill.
Dan was joined by Catherine Bennett on this wedding as the second photographer.
Having two wedding photographers makes photographs like these possible. In this instance Catherine able to capture Yvonne walking into the ceremony room with her Dad whilst Dan was hiding down the isle.
The wedding ceremony room at Castle Hill is grand in every way. Large historic tapestries and artwork fill the red walls and make a great backdrop for wedding photographs!
We took a break from the wedding party for 20 minutes to get some photographs by one of the many fantastic outdoor features that Castle Hill offers before returning to the wedding breakfast.
Photographing wedding speeches is often one of the best parts of the day for us, surrounded by spontaneous laughter and untold mischief!
For the first dance Dan and Catherine used some off-camera lighting techniques to achieve more depth and motion in these photographs.
Dan believes that as a wedding photographer the worst thing you can do in the evening is stand still. People are having fun and won't necessarily realise that they are having their photograph taken, so Dan tries to get involved and discover photographic opportunities whilst everyone parties!
