Sue + Dan | Castle Hotel Tamworth

After sharing the initial previews of Sue + Dan’s wedding a few days ago I’m delighted to bring their featured story here today.
As I mentioned in the first post, Sue + Dan are close friends of mine and Beki’s so the whole day was even more special than usual.
Although not a venue I’ve worked at a great deal, The Castle Hotel in Tamworth with the extremely attentive staff was a fantastic venue to work at, and with the stunning Castle Grounds only a couple of minutes walk away, the whole setting is truly fantastic.
The day was absolutely fantastic and we all had a brilliant time – and I even enjoyed being a guest after the first dance too! I hope you enjoy sharing Sue + Dan’s wedding story.

Set in the heart of Tamworth in the shadow of the stunning Tamworth Castle and it’s surrounding gardens, The Castle Hotel was the perfect setting for Sue + Dan’s big day. Putting their own touch on the venue with their choice of flowers and the inclusion of the colour themed chair covers set the room off perfectly

I met up with Dan with his brother Rich and the guests in the bar at the Castle Hotel (after delivering a bottle of much needed champagne to Beki, Sue and the girls getting ready upstairs!

As you can see it was all fun and giggles up in the room during final bridal preparations.

It wasn’t until looking back at this photo recently that I saw the depths of emotion between Sue, Beki and Lisa – all of whom have been close friends for year. Sue means the absolute world to Beki and seeing the true friendship and love showing through here means I captured something so true in the photographs.candid-photography-entrance-ceremony-castlehotel

Seeing Sue’s face as she first walked up to Dan I couldn’t help but smile. Photographing weddings is always a huge privilege and honour, but photographing the wedding of close friends is incredibly special.emotional-wedding-photography-tamworth

As you can see, the emotion was clearly flowing from Eleanor, Dan + Sue’s other daughter during the ceremony.castle-hotel-tamworth-wedding-photography
