Peckforton Castle on a beautiful sunny day with the bride and groom

If You’re Planning An Intimate Summer Wedding, You’ll Love This Wedding For Inspiration!  Here is Ryan and Naomi’s wedding story

When Ryan and Naomi first got in touch with us about their wedding, we were so thrilled, and we couldn’t wait to chat and find out more about the plans they had for their special day.  

Bride and Groom Preperations

Ryan and Naomi both decided to get ready in The Lodge, set in the castle grounds and surrounded by woodland.  Even though they were getting ready there, they decided to stick to tradition and not see each other before the ceremony. Ryan wore a dark blue stylish three-piece suit, and Naomi wore a classic white wedding dress with sweetheart neckline – they both looked incredible.

The Celebration Ceremony

The celebration ceremony took place in the impressive Great Hall decorated with stunning ivory flower arches, blossom trees and delicate pink and white rose petals scattered on a white carpeted aisle.  Ryan and Naomi were already married; they initially held their wedding ceremony in China a couple of months earlier. Still, they wanted to celebrate their coming together for their family and friends back in the UK and what better location than a fairy tale castle in the English countryside.  Their wedding celebration ceremony was intimate and stylish and Rob’s Best Man Rob officiated.

After the ceremony, the guests showered the happy couple with confetti before heading outside for their drinks reception.

The Afternoon of the Wedding

Ryan and Naomi mingled with their guests enjoying the champagne and canapes outside the Coach House, which gave the afternoon a really chilled vibe.  After a short while, we headed off with the happy couple to make the most of the beautiful backdrops the castle had to offer and time for some bride and groom portraits inside including the magnificent Wine Cellar.

Their wedding breakfast was held in The Long Gallery and again, stunningly decorated with opulent floral displays and candlelit tables – it was magical. Excellent speeches followed the meal before cutting the wedding cake and getting the party started. 

Time for a quick change of clothes for Naomi before heading outside with their guests to take some fun shots with sparklers.  Then it was back to the party to dance the night away.
