Lumley Castle wedding.

The beautiful Lumley Castle in County Durham, was built in the 14th Century by Sir Ralph Lumley.

Somewhere, through the corridors of stately statues, I come across the room where the bride is getting ready. She looks like a medieval princess.


Aha! The rings, securely tied onto the ring cushion in fear that the page boy might drop it.
He did, in the room beforehand. But the rings stayed put so that was a good trial run!


In the ceremony room, I'm in a great spot to capture the groom's first sight of his bride.
  

Here comes the big moment for the page boy! Will he drop it?



No, he just thrust it at the registrar. Much laughter all around.


After the ceremony, the rain's held off long enough to take some photos outside. Hooray, because we're spoilt for choice for dramatic backgrounds for photos.

The bride and groom with the page boy...who also happens to be their son.


I love the magnificent doorway and the warmth of the stone.


Wandering back round to find the guests...and the champagne!



Back in the reception room I find...a butterfly?


Ahh, it's a decoration on a lovely looking cake.


And then I spot...an elephant?!!


Ah no, it's Grandma who's made the page boy a mask at a very cleverly placed arts and crafts table for the children who are at the wedding.


Leaving the bride and groom and their guests to enjoy their meal in the Scarbrough room, I take one last picture of the castle.

In the meantime...

While you're waiting for images of the next wedding, here are a few from a wedding earlier this year.

The ceremony was held at St Lawrence's church, Warkworth, Northumberland followed by a reception at The White Swan Hotel in Alnwick.
