Wentworth Castle Conservatory Wedding Photography - Verity & Tim

Posted on 17th December 2014 by Mark Tierney

Verity and Tom's wedding, which took place at the Victorian conservatory attached to Wentworth Castle in Barnsley, was one of the most child-friendly marriages I've ever had the privilege to photograph. There were croquet hoops, noise-makers, masks, crazy hats and even a dance floor covered in foam matting. However, it wasn't just the kids who had a good time. With such a brilliantly laid-back atmosphere, the couple tied the knot amidst plenty of smiles in their beautifully ornate surroundings. There was a lot of love contained within those glass walls!

Between the conservatory and the marquee I managed to take a few shots of bride and groom together on the perfectly manicured lawns. Plenty of sunshine lit up the day and a cornucopia of colour was provided by the spectacular summer flowers.

Following an athletic bouquet toss, we headed into the marquee for the reception, where the stylish button and jam jar-filled décor complemented the wedding's shabby chic theme. Their gorgeous black Labrador also needs a mention given that the dog featured both on the place cards and the cake.

I loved the relaxing ambience that Verity and Tim had managed to create. They are obviously a very calm, charismatic couple with a focus firmly on fun. They didn't even seem to mind when their romantic first dance gave way to a troupe of little ones wielding inflatable hammers. Hats off to you - it was a great day all round. All the best for the future!
