Getting married at Castle Ashby is more than just a wish come true for any loved-up couple … it’s romance, elegance and tranquility personified. Especially for the wedding photographer lucky enough to shoot it! Castle Ashby is totally me.

… And to think: This is someone’s back garden!

Set in the heart of the countryside, Castle Ashby is overflowing with flora and fauna (from meerkats to mini ponies!) The more you look, the more you see. And I’ll happily be there as your wedding photographer to capture the relaxed ambiance of being surrounded by nature in The Walled Garden.

My experience at Castle Ashby

Castle Ashby hasn’t offered weddings for several years, but *sound the klaxon*, The Walled Garden can now host tipi and marquee weddings. I’m so excited I might burst!

I’ve yet to shoot a wedding at Castle Ashby - but Daisy, Poppy and me are regular visitors. We love walking in the luxurious but laid-back gardens before cuddling up with a coffee (for me) and gravy bones (for the fur-ladies).  Daisy and Poppy have led me all over the estate - there isn’t an inch they haven’t made me sniff out with them! – and we now know it like the back of our paws.

However, I’ve photographed pre-wedding portraits, bridal fashion shoots - and even a marriage proposal at Castle Ashby (she said "yes"!).

And when Castle Ashby’s wedding planner rang me to ask if they could recommend me as one of their wedding photographers, I truly did try to keep my cool.

Spoiler alert: I failed.

The Walled Garden at Castle Ashby is just too incredible for a wedding photographer like me not to fawn over!

Will you be my first Castle Ashby wedding photography couple?

Five reasons you’ll love Castle Ashby for your wedding photography

  • 1 You can get married in the church on the grounds, which is a Jimmy Choo-friendly walk from The Walled Garden. You’ll enjoy classic church ceremony photos followed by natural shots of you leading your guests pied piper style from church to drinks reception.
  • 2 The versatile gardens and grounds boast all styles of backdrops for portraits and group photos. We can showcase your love story amidst the Orangery, Italian gardens, arboretum, greenhouses, lake, stone bridges … and, yep, even the meerkats can have a guest appearance in your wedding photos.
  • 3 The most beautiful orangery you ever did see (with a pond that’s home to 100 fish) makes a great covered spot for wet weather formal photos that still have an outdoor look and feel.
  • 4 Castle Ashby combines luxury and stately with relaxed charm that suits my classic, natural photography style. There’s amazing architecture amongst nature - full of structural symmetry and natural shapes that’ll look incredible in your wedding photos.
  • 5 Pets are allowed! Yippee! You know I’m all over that and will, happily, capture your fur-fam celebrating your wedding with you.
