This was a wedding that I had a chance to work for amazing Sarah Rachel at her clients’ wedding and photograph precious wedding moments from somewhat behind the scenes and in a more photojournalistic way. The wedding took place at Fonthill Castle Estate and it was pretty much amazing. The weather was a little too warm but the location and the light were simply perfect. And can a wedding photographer wish for anything better? No :). So I was super happy with all the photo opportunities and gorgeous backdrop of Fonthill Castle Estate for these wedding photos.
Getting ready at Fonthill Castle Estate Wedding
Both Stacey and Steve got ready at a local hotel not too far away from Fonthill Castle Estate. Their closest family and friends were there to help them out and to share those few moments before the wedding. Stacey’s dress was very beautiful – sleeveless top, long strip of buttons in the back, covered in lace and having a long beautiful train. Her bridesmaids wore wine bridesmaids dresses and were pretty stunning too.
Stacey’s wedding shoes were pretty gorgeous as well. But the best moment I thought that happened their was her dad being mesmerized by the beauty of them. He just sat their and stared at the intricate work and how gorgeous those diamond covered heels were. I am pretty much with love with this moment! And Stacey put an additional small blue crystal on the bottom of her shoes to have ‘something blue’ too. I thought it was the most brilliant idea because that piece matched the style of her wedding shoes so well. Steve was getting ready just a few rooms down. He wore a nice stylish charcoal suit and a pearl pink tie to match Stacey’s wedding shoes. His groomsmen made sure he looked his best as well and had a few fun moments with him as well. After the time was right and everyone was ready, both Stacey and Steve headed to Fonthill Castle Estate to see each other and to get married there!!!
Wedding Photos at Fonthill Castle Estate
Stacey and Steve were super excited to see each other. Obviously they loved how both of them looked and gave each other a bunch of compliments. And now we had some time for their portrait time. They were super loving to each other and it was very easy to photograph newlyweds who are so much in love with each other. After we had some time for just Stacey and Steve, their bridal party joined us and we had an awesome time with them as well. The Fonthill Castle Estate property was such a beautiful location for the wedding photos. Especially considering that wedding color pallet matched the paint on the Fonthill Castle windows. Made it easy to make everything look good in the photos :).

Wedding Reception at Fonthill Castle Estate
And YAY!!! Stacey and Steve were married and now it was time to celebrate it!!! The tent with gorgeous custom decor was set. And check out how much work and thought Stacey put into those beautiful wedding decor pieces. Custom signs, collages of their dating photos, finger print art piece for guests for sign, and custom made menus. Everything was so perfect!
And here they were – married, excited and ready to party! As they entered the tent they went straight into their first dance. They also danced with their parents and had very thoughtful and super fun speeches afterwards. And once the official part was over a true party began.
Glow sticks, crazy fun guests, music instruments and great dance moves were all recorded and delivered to Stacey and Steve :). What a wonderful and lovely day it was at Fonthill Castle Estate celebrating Stacey and Steve wedding!
