Dan & Nic’s upcoming Wedding Photography at Rowton Castle, Shrewsbury | Pre-Wedding Photo-Shoot

Dan is the elder of my two (younger) brothers! He is finally getting married to his lovely fiancee, Nicola, in May this year πŸ™‚

They have chosen to get married at St Georges Church followed by their reception at Rowton Castle,Β a beautiful 17th century grade II listed building, not far from Shrewsbury in Shropshire.

As I have not had the opportunity to photograph at either venue it was a good excuse to meet up for the day to look around both venues.

The Church congregation & Minister were incredibly welcoming & after coffee & biscuits we had chance to look around the church & take some pictures inside. We finally braved the gale-force winds & headed on to Rowton Castle ……after making a quick pit-stop for a carvery mmmm πŸ™‚

Despite the grey skies and the cold on this damp & blustery day, Β the first impression of Rowton Castle certainly didn’t disappoint … & what could have been better than walking in from the cold to be greeted by a big hug from Jack, the owner, then having a hot, steaming pot of coffee, tea & a huge plate piled high with biscuits served to us in-front of a roaring log fire ? … Well, if that wasn’t good enough we were then encouraged, by Jack, to help ourselves to Creme Brulee, Scones, Victoria Sponge Cake & an array of other delights … So much for my diet in order to get in to my dress ready for their wedding!!!

Sorry … this is meant to be a blog about my photography, not my weaknesses & lack of will-power when surrounded by all things sweet & sugary … however, it was just too good not to at least mention it πŸ™‚

So back to the photography … What can I say, other than I think we’re going to be spoilt for choice … inside & out!

Below are just a few pictures taken from around Rowton Castle … please look back here towards the end of May to see some more from Dan & Nic’s actual Wedding day πŸ™‚

As I said earlier, I’ve not photographed a wedding at Rowton castle in Shropshire before. It is, after-all, a little outside my normal Warwickshire area! However, if you’ve got a wedding arranged there and you think you’d like a really good photographer who can produce some imaginative images in beautiful albums please do give me a call on 07739096632. Despite the distance from my home I will certainly seriously consider photographing weddings at Rowton Castle in the future!
