The Spring sunshine we had took me back to a wedding this time last year at the stunning Clearwell Castle.
Charlotte and James’ wedding was packed with personality! When we met to chat about their day, they said they were keen on all things Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings, they’d chosen Clearwell as a stunning local Castle to fit their fairytale/fantasy wedding. It’s full of gothic detail, has a very mythical feel about it and plenty of grandeur!
James and Charlotte met thanks to their mutual love of motorbikes and James arrived with his Groomsman at the castle on their beloved bikes. What an awesome modern fairy tale entrance (another form of horsepower!)
Charlotte’s intricate dress from Chanticleer had been altered especially to add in a lace lilac train at the back which was the colour running through all the details of the day, a beautiful leaf detail dress with sparkling embellishment and a simple silhouette with a dip to show off Charlotte’s back tattoo looked gorgeous on her.
The Ceremony was super emotional as they’d done something very few couples are brave enough to do…written their own vows!!!! Not a dry eye in the house and I (as usual) was a bit ‘watery eyed’ behind the camera too!
Family was hugely important to both Charlotte and James on their day and their flowergirl (the multicoloured unicorn) James’ niece definitely had her fair share of the limelight. Charlotte had moved to the UK from Denmark and her family were in full Viking swing, leading the way with plenty of ‘skål’ toasts to celebrate!
It was a fantastic day, very unique, alternative, a real coming together of two families and traditions and all the better for it! Skål to that!
