Caswell House Wedding Photographer

Here’s a wedding I shot at Caswell House, along with the couple, Darren and Julie’s wedding story.

I first joined the groom at a nearby pub, The Bird in the Hand, as it was within walking distance of where the lads were getting ready. Then I followed them for the usual informal preparation photos before heading off to meet Julie at Caswell House, where she was getting ready.

Julie got ready in the beautiful rustic themed Coach House, and as you’ll see there wasn’t a dry eye in the house once she was in her dress!

Outdoor Wedding Ceremony at Caswell House

If you get the chance to hold an outdoor wedding ceremony at Caswell House, go for it! The setting in and around the Caswell House Loggia is so beautiful.

This was a July wedding when the lavender was in full bloom, and this added a beautiful pop of colour for their wedding, which was already themed around Cadbury purple.

They ended their day with their speeches and evening reception in Bartletts Barn

Rain at Caswell House

I’m often asked: “What happens if it rains on my wedding day?” I say “Embrace it! It’ll make for great photos!”
