English castle wedding

Bride and groom on the steps of Wentworth Castle

Gorgeous wedding photography in Wentworth Castle gardens

I love the spectacle of a castle wedding – and there’s something very English about the luxury of a huge wedding venue with a rich history, with wedding guests in their finery milling around like lords and ladies.

Not to mention a beautiful bride in cascades of silk, swishing and swirling around like a real princess – and Lucy is wonderful in this gorgeous wedding shot by Tierney Photography.

Lucy and Patrick were married at Wentworth Castle, Barnsley just a few weeks ago. They both look fantastic in these photographs, and I really love the style of their wedding day: classy, vintage and full of emotion.

The day will take you from ear-to-ear smiles, to happy tears and real pride – the images of Lucy and Patrick around the wedding venue show a happy, proud and made-for-each-other bride and groom. Enjoy!

From the full blog post over at Tierney Photography I think Patrick and Lucy are enjoying a bit of audience participation as a cute toddler legs it up the aisle for a closer look!

Vintage bus and car

Another fantastic detail of this wedding: Vintage bus and car

What a treat… the car is Lucy’s dad’s: a vintage American hot rod (so it says on Mark Tierney’s blog! I’m no expert but…) I love it! That’s one very special wedding car.

I love the ribbon on the bus – they must have found a really long one. 🙂

After the church ceremony the bride and groom set off for Wentworth Castle in true vintage style, with guests catching the bus to join them.

The wedding reception: Wentworth Castle

Patrick and Lucy held their reception at Wentworth Castle, a magnificent building set in acres and acres of historic gardens.

I love the bright, fresh colours Lucy and Patrick chose for their day. The pretty green theme is summery and different, and the pink accents stand out like the proverbial cherry on the cake!

The bride and groom spent a little time exploring the venue in golf buggies – the grounds were too extensive to walk! I think Mark enjoyed the excursion as well: he certainly got some amazing photographs as a result.

Gorgeous, creative wedding photography

This is what I love Tierney Photography for most of all: breathtaking creativity. See the images full size on his blog - link at the end of this post.

    Wow what amazing photos! The bride holding her veil with the skyline is lovely and very unusual. I love the relaxed shot of the couple sharing a private moment.
