Lumley Castle Durham Wedding Photographer ~ Steph & Ben
“What a talented photographer! We’re still on cloud 9. All those photos flooded me with memories of the day.”
And just like that I’m back into the swing of wedding season! This time I’m shooting over at the rather grande, Lumley Castle nearby Durham. The lovely couple in question are Ben & Stephanie who I met at a previous wedding a couple of years back! Their family and friends are just the nicest bunch and I absolutely love catching up with guests from previous weddings!
I’d shot an engagement session with Ben & Steph late last year so already knew these guys were super natural in front of the camera and when it came time to sneak off and grab some couples portraits, I couldn’t have asked for a better couple! Both Ben & Steph are musicians so the day was filled with music. As well as this Ben & Steph also put on a selection of activities that they both love including turtle racing which if I’m honest becomes very competitive, very fast!
Lumley Castle, Durham is a sprawling venue which becomes a bit of a maze until you get your bearings. It’s filled with luscious antiques and paintings which all make for a stunning backdrop. Although the day started with some glorious sunshine it didn’t take long before the good old english weather kicked in and the heavens open. We were lucky enough to get the groups done outside before a made dash indoors as the winds picked up!
I’d just like to say a massive thank you to all the guests that made me feel so welcome and to the happy couple for being so awesome all day long! Here’s a few of my favourite frames and don’t forget to check back for the full blog!
