A Real Story of a Real Wedding: Kara & Jason at Rowton Castle, Shropshire – a documentary wedding photography approach.
Rowton Castle, near Shrewsbury in Shropshire, is a stunning wedding venue. Set within 17 acres of beautiful grounds and over 800 years old you cannot be anything else but wowed by such a location. So when Kara and Jason asked me to be their wedding photographer I absolutely jumped at the chance – especially as they wanted a candid wedding reportage approach to their big day.
Come the day itself and it was a stunning summer’s day, befitting of such a grand venue. My day started by photographing the bridal preparations in the delightful bridal suite. As a wedding photojournalist I absolutely love this part of the day – there are so many real moments, genuine emotions, laughs, excitement and, yes, even the odd tear or two.
The wedding ceremony was set within the impressive Georgian styled Cardeston Suite. The bride and groom looked simply stunning which always makes my life, as a wedding photographer, so much easier. The grounds then provided a befitting backdrop to the post ceremony drinks and music on the lawn – once again providing so many moments and emotions to capture within my wedding reportage approach.
The evening reception saw the bride take to the floor with her father, for a last dance, before she was then handed over to the groom for their moving and emotional first dance together – all to the wonderful bluesy-jazzy lounge vibe of the beautiful wedding singer.
I doubt it’s a wedding day anyone will forget!

Here is a very small selection of photos from Kara & Jason’s real wedding story at Rowton Castle in Shropshire.
Documenting The Real Story Of Your Wedding. Never Dictating it.
My Wedding Stories show you a chronological selection of photos from throughout a REAL wedding day, rather than just images specially selected for a portfolio (us photographers love to do that.) After all, your wedding photography should be about your entire day rather than the very best images from the day. I hope this not only gives you a feel of a whole wedding day but also demonstrates how my wedding photojournalism captures the natural moments, candid emotions and real events of the day – without the need to set up or stage fake moments.
If you are getting married and enjoy my documentary wedding photography approach, then I’d really love to chat to you about your plans. Drop me a line here.
