Pre-wedding at Castle Howard

I first met Cat and Nick back in February when snow was on the ground and the temperature was in the minuses. It couldn’t have been more different than last week at Castle Howard. The weather was gorgeous and I’d forgotten how spectacular Castle Howard is – a photographer’s dream. But what really made the shoot was Cat and Nick themselves. They were so much fun. I didn’t have to ask them to do anything in these pictures, they were just spontaneously larking about and having a great time together, in between the odd pause to contemplate. Not surprisingly I am really looking forward to their wedding at The George Hotel, Piercebridge, near Darlington. If they’re even half as relaxed and happy as they were at their pre-wedding session it’s going to be an amazing wedding.

  • susieThere weren’t that many tourists around that day actually, which was a bit strange for a sunny weekend. Those there were weren’t exactly very mobile on the whole (average age was well over 70) so they were easily dodgible especially by Cat and Nick – active personified! But I will admit to photoshopping a couple out of the background in one or two shots!
