Wedding photography at Belvoir Castle

 

 

This year, we were thrilled to be asked to photograph Helen and Ian’s wedding at Belvoir Castle.


As wedding venues in Leicestershire go, this one is pretty spectacular. And as if that wasn’t enough, the day was rounded off with the special firing of the Duke’s cannons – all eight of them. This wedding certainly went off with a bang.

 

Belvoir, which means beautiful view in French, dates back to Norman times and has been the ancestral home of the Manners family for 500 years. It is currently home to the 11th Duke and Duchess of Rutland and their family.

 

The weather wasn’t too bright for Helen and Ian’s big day, but the castle’s stunning interior provided plenty of wedding photography opportunities. Helen got ready in the King’s Bedroom, with its huge windows and sumptuous furnishings, before the couple’s civil ceremony in the Guardroom, with high ceilings and roaring open fires.

 

After the ceremony, we took pictures in the grounds (luckily the drizzle had stopped!) and in the breathtaking Elizabeth Saloon, before group shots in the Regents Gallery surrounded by works of art by the likes of Gainsborough, Reynolds, Holbein and Poussin.

 

Belvoir Castle really is a stunning wedding venue for photography and Ian and Helen were a lovely couple to work with – we wish them many congratulations!
