Yesterday I got to spend an entire day with the awesome Emma & Tom for their wedding over at the crazy grand gothic eccentricity of Carlton Towers. I'm not gonna lie the only thing I could think of before I pulled up at this incredible building was Carlton Banks from Fresh Prince of Bel Air. but what was actually at the end of that little country road was an absolute statement of grandeur that spired into the cold Yorkshire bleak skies.
So we have the setting but all of that awesomeness was totally overshadowed by the two love struck humans at its epicentre. After a beautiful ceremony in the luscious golden hall (Check out that wallpaper) I got to explore the grounds with this magnificent two for a moment of peace & tranquility (In the brief times where I shut the Hell up of course) before the wedding breakfast & speeches amidst those that matter most.
A chandelier lit first dance filled the room with a glow & warm hearts before we headed off to make some final magic in the interior of the magnificent building itself.
What a day, What a stage, What a love.
Here's to Emma & Tom
LOST & FOUND
Wowza did I love exploring the eclectic Gothic grounds of the incredible Carlton Towers with Emma & Tom a couple of months back for their wedding. In fact this weeks episode is centred around just that. Join me on a journey to relive those moments that may not have seen the light of your screens to greet your eye balls with awesomeness. Its time for Lost & Found.
Just check out the gold wallpaper in photograph one that adorned the interior of one of Carlton Towers many rooms. Those chandeliers were just begging for some prism based portraits & of course the symmetry of the room just added to the visual feastery. I arranged the bridal party into a V shape while the room was empty & got them to look straight forward. I adore how regal this portrait is. Like King's & Queens of old.
Number two is taken in the same rooom this time of just the Bride & Groom. Again it's rare that I prefer a black & white over colour but that Victorian feel was only empasized by the edit. As you guys know I love static poses & after placing the groom side by side by this most epic of fire places. Click.
The final photograph was taken as Emma descended the stairs before the ceremony. That stained glass framing the flowing dress was hauntingly beautiful. I metered for the window throwing her into silhouette & was greeted with this timeless frame.
