We headed north, well as far as the Telford area anyway, to Rowton Castlein Shropshire for this Spring wedding! Sarah & James had ordered the sun and it kindly obliged, which meant that Sarah didn’t have to cover her beautiful dress from The Bridal Boutique in Somerset, so the exquisite lace detail was on show all day. We arrived at Sarah’s parent’s house where the hairdressers were completing their creations and Lou, Sarah’s Sister was applying Bridesmaid’s make up! Sarah applied her own make up, it was all very relaxed. Once Sarah was ready, helped by her Mum, we took some photographs in the back garden, where it was lovely and warm (and where we had to divert the path of one of the cats which was making a beeline for Sarah!!) We arrived at St Andrew’s Church in Shifnal to be met by James and his Groomsmen, all wearing mid-grey suits from Slaters menswear. Sarah arrived on time and the service was really personal to them, including Jenny, one of the Bridesmaids, singing an Elton John track, ‘Your Song’. James is a keen Cricketer, so it was only fitting that they had a ‘Guard of honour’ with the boys holding their cricket bats instead of swords and they both walked through to be greeted by the confetti throwers! At Rowton Castle, they arrived in their Vintage Beaufort Car with the roof down, which made for lovely photographs inside & out, before heading through to the back of the castle where we took family and friends photographs before heading off down to the small lake for some gorgeous shots of the two of them! The final ‘formal’ shot of the day was with their stunning cake, lovingly made by James’s Sister, Ruth (also a Bridesmaid). The speeches came after the Wedding Breakfast, which were all very well received despite the nerves. Everyone had fun having their photographs taken in the ‘Photobooth’ before watching Sarah & James take to the dance floor, where the DJ made sure they were joined by their guests and kept them dancing in to the night!
