Peckforton Castle is a luxury mock medieval fairy tale castle located in the beautiful Cheshire countryside. It is surrounded by stunning gothic architecture and offers breathtaking views from every corner. As a wedding photographer, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph Mr and Mrs Qassem’s wedding at Peckforton Castle. The castle offers endless photo opportunities both inside and out, making it a dream location for wedding photography. I was excited to capture the beauty and magic of the castle and the couple’s special day.
The day of Mr and Mrs Qassem’s wedding at Peckforton Castle began with bridal preparations in the castle’s Lodge. The Lodge is a spacious cottage located at the start of the castle’s estate, a few minutes walk from the castle. Peckforton Castle offers a shuttle service to transport guests from the Lodge to the castle. The Lodge was spacious and well-suited for a large bridal party to get ready, with a master bedroom that was perfect for wedding detail photos. Fifteen minutes before the ceremony was due to start, the castle’s chauffeur arrived to pick up the bride and bridesmaids.
Mr and Mrs Qassem’s wedding ceremony was held in the stunning Great Hall at Peckforton Castle. The Great Hall is a large and impressive space that can accommodate both large and small weddings. Despite its grandeur, it does not feel overwhelming for smaller weddings. In fact, the Great Hall is lovely for smaller weddings and the scale and grandeur of the space is truly impressive. Photos cannot do the Great Hall justice and it is a must-see for anyone considering a wedding at Peckforton Castle.
Once the couple’s wedding service was over, I had to take the family formal outside in the castle courtyard while the guest had champagne and canapes.
Peckforton Castle is one of those wedding venues where everywhere you go and around every corner, you can see beautiful photo opportunities as a wedding photographer.
Mr & Mrs Qassem were up to get the very most out of their Peckforton Castle wedding, which saw us take the beautiful bride and groom photography around the castle grounds.
One of my favorite locations to take pictures inside Peckforton Castle is on the grand steps. This location is like something out of a Robin Hood Movie!
My favourite location outside Peckforton castle is outside the castle walls next to the gatehouse. I love this location as you can get a real idea of the scale of the castle.
