Wedding photography at Langley Castle, Northumberland near Hexham, by Emerson Photography.
Wedding photography in a medieval castle is always a challenge, even when there's plenty of light in the middle of Summer. Castles make amazing wedding venues, but they do tend to be a little on the dark side due to six foot thick walls and (often) very small windows. Langley Castle however, has an abundance of natural light - the windows are a good size and it really does feel pretty airy compared to some other castle venues I've shot at.
Emma and Stephen's day started a little late due to an accident on the A1. I always allow an extra 40 minutes or so travel time on a wedding day, but this time I gave myself nearly two hours extra time so I could have a good nose around the castle before starting. Which turned out to be a very good thing - gridlock is the word. I eventually arrived 10 minutes after my start time, but was relieved to see that I wasn't alone in having been caught up in the traffic chaos!
I just have to say - I absolutely love my job. I take it incredibly seriously, but just can't help enjoying pretty much every second of it (traffic jams apart). The formal training at uni and college were a huge help but I really have not stopped learning since that first solo wedding nearly eight years ago! I hope all the dedication and hard work shows in the images.
Anyway, enough chat and onto the photographs!
So all in all, a fantastic day, despite the traffic. If you're looking for a documentary wedding photographer with many years of experience and formal training, please do just get in touch for an informal, friendly chat.
