Clearwell Castle wedding photography – Laura Jade & John’s Wedding at Clearwell Castle. Wet day but full of fun, love and laughter.
This lovely couple, who are now living in Seattle (John is a US citizen) got married in the gorgeous Clearwell Caste which is just inside the Forest of Dean. Being the kind of photographer that specialises in Clearwell Castle wedding Photography, and more importantly, Laura had been a bridesmaid at a wedding I’d photographed previously I was asked to be their wedding photographer.
The day was cool and was spattered with rain. We managed to get some great photographs by the lake area in the Forest of Dean but this was spoilt by the rain.
Some fun and laughter and a great sparkler evening shot ended what was a great day doing Clearwell Castle wedding Photography
