I’m delighted that Naomi and Vince choose me to be their wedding photographer for their wedding at Walworth Castle in Darlington.
I got to know Naomi and Vince as we took a stroll in Jesmond Dene. It’s a cold day but we managed to get some nice pictures and have a good chat.
To marry in an actual castle is just a dream,
Above all, I feel lucky to live in this country with such amazing old buildings full of history. Walworth Castle in Darlington certainly has the wow factor. Straight from a fairy tale. Inside it feels as if you have stepped back in time. I’m blown away with Naomi’s bedroom, with her four-poster bed and an enormous room with stunning chandeliers. I want to live there and be the lady of the castle. But I wasn’t, clearly, Naomi took on that role.
On the morning Naomi was joined by her ‘Bridesmaids’, however, one of them, well, how can I put this. He wasn’t female. Why should one of her closet friends not be there on the morning of her wedding day. Simply because he isn’t female? I completely agree with Naomi you can have whoever you want as your ‘best people’. It wouldn’t have been the same without him, he had an infectious smile and helped keep Naomi calm by constantly telling her silly jokes and making everyone giggle.
More over, Naomi’s dress was perfect for the venue, it’s hand made with gorgeous long sleeves and the back laced up at Walworth Castle
Afer that, we had fun playing around with the long sleeves as I asked Naomi to wave her arms around in front of the huge window. She very much got into the role, or she might have just been humouring me, but I love the picture we captured.
So, Naomi and Vince tied the knot in the castle grounds inside a beautiful pavilion. With epic views of Walworth Castle and the sun shining. Naomi made her entrance with her proud dad by her side. After the ceremony, we had fun doing some group pictures.
To conclude, I had to have Walworth castle as a backdrop, it’s a no brainer, so once again I reached for my trusty ladder and managed to get up quite high.
