Herstmonceux Castle. I had heard of it and seen it in photographs but had never visited.
That changed when Alix & Roger booked me for their wedding day... at this castle.... in the middle of a Medieval Festival! And not just any festival... this was England's Medieval Festival - THE festival to go to if youre interested in anytime remotely Medieval. I literally jumped at the chance to share their day.
So i travelled down the coast on a hot and sunny August Bank holiday weekend and arrived at a huge event... 1000s of people and the most awesome atmosphere. It was an amazing experience for me, one i will never forget.
I spent the morning with Alix and her bridesmaids before we walked down to the Rose Garden where these guys had their ceremony. I pretty much then became a shadow to the happy couple and their friends and family and spent the afternoon photographing their day. Before heading back to the Castle itself, getting some groups done, a few couple shots before going in to the evening banquet.
Ive picked many many photos.. It was awesome. I loved it. I was honoured to be a part of it and i hope one day il get to do something like it again!!
