Clearwell Castle | Cherie-Anne + Katie
Regular visitors to our blog will have seen that we have had many “firsts” recently, today’s wedding was a double first for me,
first visit to this glorious venue Clearwell Castle and my very first wedding joining two ladies in marriage, and what a thoroughly enjoyable experience it was for me.

When Cherie-Anne and Katie invited me to photograph their special day at the beautiful Clearwell Castle in Gloucestershire I could not have been more delighted.
I had never been to the venue before and until now never photographed the marriage of two ladies.This was an enormous compliment for me,for the faith they showed in my ability and my work…I cannot thank the two of them enough.Everyone involved in this special day enjoyed themselves tremendously-no one more than me.
My day started talking to and photographing Katie as she waited for Cherie-Anne to join her for the meaningful ceremony. Cherie-Anne was escorted by her father, down the grand staircase and met Katie at the head of the fantastic ceremony room at the Castle to join each other in marriage. I was fortunate enough to be allowed to record the proceedings from the front of the room and could share the expressions of love and commitment as this lovely couple exchanged their vows. A deafening and rapturous round of applause followed the announcement that they were now officially a married couple.
Family group shots were then the order of the day before the couple joined with me in a tour of the beautiful grounds and gardens for their time alone.
After the wonderful meal it was time for cake cutting and the first dance in the “cellar” rooms of the Castle…the end of a very memorable day for all concerned..including me.
