Darren and Lisa’s marriage took place at the Maidens Tower, Leeds Castle, Kent the weekend before Christmas.  The forecast had promised sunny/cloudy weather – however upon approaching the castle I drove towards a dark snowy sky and on arrival it started to sleet – definitely not forecast!!  Thankfully the sky cleared and it was beautiful fresh but sunny day.  Perfect for a pre-Christmas wedding!

The marriage and celebrations all took place at the Maiden’s Tower which is situated next to Leeds Castle on the Island. The tower is the perfect place to hold a wedding being that it’s self contained.

Here are some of my favourite images from the day…

Lisa’s something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue….

Lisa’s gift to Darren…

Lisa had made most of the table settings and menus herself and the wedding breakfast room looked beautiful!

These are the moments I love to capture….

One very happy groom!

I love this shot of Lisa – what a beautiful, radiant bride!

The afternoon sky was very pretty

The grounds of the castle are open to the public until late afternoon in winter, not that it seemed to worry Darren and Lisa…

There’s always one!

Well done ladies for braving the chill!!

Whilst the wedding party were eating their wedding breakfast, i donned my coat & scarf a had a walk around the grounds of the castle.  It was incredibly cold and snow threatened, but the grounds were so calm and there was a real sense of serenity..

I love capturing the real emotion of the speeches – often funny, touching, sometimes a tad embarrassing, but always delivered with love and affection..

Darren and Lisa had chosen Little Big Band to entertain their guests – they were amazing and there were no shortage of folk on the dance floor!

Farewell Maidens Tower…

Congratulations Darren & Lisa!
