Leeds Castle Wedding Venue

Leeds Castle is an absolutely magnificent venue for a wedding. The castle is set in 500 acres of parkland, 4 miles south-east of Maidstone, Kent and offers stunning scenery and backdrops - it's a wedding photographer's paradise. To give you some idea of what a wedding at the Leeds Castle wedding venue can look like please view the galleries below.

Sally and Will's wedding took place at Mersham Church with the reception at Leeds Castle. They had pre-dinner drinks on a lawn facing the castle and then moved on to Fairfax Hall (a typical timber-framed Kentish barn) for speeches and the wedding breakfast. Claire and Dominic had both their ceremony and reception at the castle itself. The ceremony took place in the Dining Room, followed by drinks in the Library and then dinner in the Henry VIII Banqueting Hall, situated in the 13th century castle keep - the Gloriette. Chrissy and Andy had their ceremony and reception in the recently renovated Maiden's Tower. Both Luci and Chris, and Janine and Harry, had their weddings in The Gatehouse which, alas, is no longer available for weddings.

Laura and Guy got married on an absolutely beautiful day in October with their ceremony and reception in the castle. I started with a photoshoot of the grounds and castle and then joined Laura and her bridesmaids during their final preparations (the ladies were on top form and it was a highly amusing session). I then wandered down to the Library for candid shots of the guests and then lured Guy and his best man outside for a few shots. I then rejoined Laura and recorded her progress down the main staircase and into the ceremony room. After the ceremony and signing of the register everyone trooped outside to enjoy the setting sun whilst enjoying a glass of champagne - this provided me with an excellent opportunity to take lots of candids of the guests. I then whisked Laura and Guy off for 20 minutes for their bride and groom portrait session (I know the grounds intimately and soknow all the best locations for shots - whatever the weather decides to do) and then on our return we tackled the group shots. I then wandered down to the main hall to get some shots of the settings and cake and followed this up with lots of candids of the guests in the Library. After a highly entertaining receiving line I took candids of the guests as they settled in the hall and then departed as the wedding breakfast was served. This wedding features extensively on the Leeds Castle website and in their latest wedding brochure.

I'm a preferred wedding photographer at Leeds Castle and have photographed almost 40 weddings there.
