Clearwell Castle wedding photography – Marie & Simon

I am so, so late to the Clearwell Castle party, it was almost barely worth me turning up, well almost!

With plaudits from professional critics, fellow photographers and the Tripadvisor crowd, if you ever get to experience this amazing place, you’ll see why it’s so damn popular! I’ve been asked to photograph weddings at Clearwell Castle before but frustratingly on each occasion my diary has been booked.  I was very pleased to be free to accept this request.  The gardens and interiors of this majestic castle are mind-blowingly gorgeous!

Marie and Simon’s wedding was without a doubt a wedding I was very much looking forward to photographing – it’s not every week I get to work in a castle!

Marie was very particular in what she was looking for.  She had done a lot of research and called in suppliers from all over the country to ensure everything was perfect for the day.  So much effort had gone into making this a fairy-tale wedding, with horses and carriage, amazing vibrant colour scheme, a stunning fireworks display and of course the backdrop of this stunningly beautiful castle.

On the day itself Marie and Simon and their family were so appreciative and friendly that it made my job so much easier.

Here is the very kind thank you letter I received from Marie and Simon:

Dear Mark,

The words thank you just don’t seem to be enough!  After a long time researching into photographers for our wedding it was clear that you were leagues above other photographers.  From the moment we chose you we knew we didn’t have to worry about anything!  From the planning meeting to the wedding day itself your energy in making everything run smoothly and to ensure you captured the perfect photos was outstanding.

And when I say perfect I mean perfect, every shot you made sure symmetry, light and backdrops were perfect.  You ensured people were positioned right and the lighting was the best it could be.  Also on a personal level you made everyone laugh and everyone felt you were a real big part of our day.  You didn’t stop from morning until night and you worked so hard.  The results were outstanding!  

You seem to have a huge talent that is beyond other photographers.  Seeing the pictures for the first time yesterday we cannot thank you enough.  You have provided us with the most amazing memories and it is all down to your energy, love for the job and attention to detail.  The colours of the photos and the crystal clear images are impeccable. I would also just like to say that this was the first time you had been to this venue.  You took photos that were unique and exceptional.

We cannot thank you enough, your enthusiasm was captured by so many people and you really made our day one we will never forget.  Everyone keeps asking us how we found you as you were just brilliant.  Your attention to detail and your need for perfection truly shows and for us was invaluable.

It is the most beautiful album and the quality of the colours and pictures are breath taking – I seriously cannot thank you enough.  I might make people wear special gloves to handle it lol.  I’m taking it into the office tomorrow… I might be slightly protective over it.

It has been a real pleasure working with you – you have literally given us the most invaluable memories.  We have looked over a million times and more at your pictures!  I will not hesitate to contact you again for any more we need for any occasion.  And I will be recommending you to everyone!

All the best
Marie & Simon

Enjoy your week!
