Leez priory wedding venue. Normally I wouldn’t blog on a wedding venue that I had previously covered in the same year, let alone just a few weeks apart. The wedding of Matt and Kate was one of those weddings that I could chat about all day.

Reculver Roman towers

Reculver Roman Towers

Many times I had driven past Reculver Roman towers in Kent, on the way to weddings in Margate and had often thought what a wonderful place this would be for a wedding. The ruins of an ancient Roman fort, sitting on the Thames estuary, spectacular views of the Kent coast, into the English channel. I had scouted the location a couple of times before and thought if I ever got the chance, then that would be the place to get good wedding shots.

Colchester Castle wedding photography
The Wedding of Simon & Zara

Colchester castle must be visually ” the venue ” to get married. Strictly speaking, Simon and Zara didn’t get married in the castle itself, Colchester registry office, photography in the castle grounds, This was done on an ad-hoc basis, luckily the weather was superb, puffy white clouds, blue skies, lots of tourists getting in the way.!

The day started with the Bride (Zara) in bridal prep with family and friends, a nervous time for any bride to be, no Zara was very well composed, in fact, was raring to go!, Simon the groom was the nervous one, best man even more so.
