couple laughing at their Peckforton Castle weddingPeckforton Castle wedding photography

Last weekend I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Louise & Paul’s stunning Peckforton Castle wedding.

I’ll be honest, I’m struggling to find the words to describe the day in a way that does it justice! From the minute we walked into the lodge where the boys were getting ready we were welcomed with open arms. I then left my second shooter Rachel with the boys while I went to photograph the girls and again I was made to feel totally at home as soon as I walked in!

Louise just blew me away, and I think everyone else too! She is such a lovely, warm, caring, happy person with an infectious smile that you can’t help falling in love with her! #girlcrush. The whole day was just a joy to be part of. You could feel the love these two have for each other and for their friends and family and the fact that they had about a million guests just shows how much they are loved in return!

I can’t really pick a favourite part of the day because it was all bloody brilliant! However, Paul (Jago) comparing Rachel to Sigourney Weaver in Gorillas in the Mist as she was sneaking about in the bushes during their couple portraits was hilarious!!

I know I say this about every wedding but this really didn’t feel like work, it was too much fun! It was also great to meet and work with Stefan, The Tall Toastmaster and John from New Venture Productions who was doing the video!

Louise & Paul very kindly wrote me this lovey review on my Facebook page;

“WOW! What can I say about the wonderful Emma Hillier! My Husband & I took to Emma straight away when we met her which hugely influenced our decision to choose her, along with loving the look of her work. Emma was in touch before hand just enough so we felt confident but not pressured! Then the big day came & it felt like Emma was one of the family. She was just brilliant & we were laughing like old friends! The pics she has captured are just the most perfect representation of the day we could have only hoped for! They outlined what our special day was about, Love, Laughter & Family! The most amazing thing was you didn’t even know she was capturing them so they are just so natural! A friend from work said that looking at the pics she actually could feel the atmosphere & it felt like she was there. Doesn’t get much better than that & what an accolade! I can’t thank Emma enough & highly recommend her xxx”

Mr & Mrs Duffy, THANK YOU so much for asking me to be part of your big day, it was absolutely amazing! Have a brilliant honeymoon in Bali! xxxxxx Bride getting ready at Peckforton Castle Bride getting ready at Peckforton CastleSmiling bride getting ready for her wedding at Peckforton CastleBride getting ready at Peckforton Castle Laughing bride at her Peckforton Castle wedding Groom getting ready at Peckforton Castle Groom getting ready at Peckforton CastleGroom getting ready at Peckforton Castle wedding dress hanging up in Peckforton CastleWedding flowers at Peckforton CastleWedding jewelleryWedding bouquet personalised with photo of grandmotherBride getting ready for her Peckforton Castle weddingBride getting ready for her Peckforton Castle weddingBride getting ready at Peckforton Castle Beautiful bride in her wedding dress at Peckforton CastleFather of the bride Father of the brideBride and her father laughing before the ceremony at Peckforton Castle Peckforton Castle ceremony room Peckforton Castle ceremony roomPeckforton Castle ceremony roomGroom awaits bride at Peckforton Castle Bride walking down the aisle at Peckforton CastleGroom waiting for his bride at Peckforton Castle weddingGroom seeing his bride for the first time at Peckforton Castle wedding Laughing bride and groom during their Peckforton Castle wedding ceremonyBride and groom during Peckforton Castle wedding ceremony Bride smiling at the groom during their Peckforton Castle wedding ceremony Bride and groom first kiss at their Peckforton Castle wedding Happy bride and groom leave their Peckforton Castle wedding ceremonyGroom hugging his daughter at Peckforton Castle wedding Family portrait at Peckforton Castle weddingBridal party at Peckforton Castle wedding Bride and groom laughing in the woods at Peckforton Castle Bride and groom laughing at their Peckforton Castle weddingFather of the bride speech at Peckforton Castle weddingGuests laughing at the wedding speeches at Peckforton CastleGroom laughing during his Peckforton Castle wedding speechesPeckforton Castle wedding cakeBride and groom cutting the cake at Peckforton CastleGuests dancing at Peckforton Castle weddingBride and groom's first dance at Peckforton Castle weddingGuests dancing at Peckforton Castle wedding
