Tortworth Court Wedding

Tortworth Court Wedding.

I remember Tortworth Court from many years ago in what feels like a previous life. The company I worked for back then used this venue for training, conferences and it was a regular stay for me when working in the area. I remember being impressed by the building, the friendliness of the staff and the excellent food in the Orangery.

It was a welcome return here, even more, welcome as this time I was here to photograph a wedding. A little more enjoyable than some sales training course……

I joined the bride, Katie briefly to say Hi but my focus this morning was with the groom, Richard.

Both had stayed at Tortworth Court the previous night so that made things easy.

I joined the groom and his best man/woman. as she said the best man for any job is often a woman. As they prepared for the wedding day with some drink, some fun and plenty of laughs.

A few pictures later and it was off to St Anne’s church for the main event. The wedding.

The wedding.

The church is in the grounds of Berkley Castle, an ancient fortress home where the Berkley family have lived since the 12th century but more about that later.

A lovely service in a beautiful church. The groom did well to keep himself in check as he watched his bride walking down the aisle. All through the wedding service, there were subtle and loving looks and handholding.

Post wedding.

The rest of the day’s celebrations were held in Berkley Castle. I stunning piece of English history with a rich and interesting past. (find out more here). From every angle, there was a beautiful backdrop for taking photographs of the newlyweds and their guests.

We made good use of the building and grounds throughout the day. The weather was best described as changeable but this wedding venue offered lovely indoor locations for the times we had a shower.

A striking wedding venue and one well worth looking at for if you are planning your wedding in this area.
