Peckforton Castle Wedding photography

Everyone wants to feel special on their wedding day and Peckforton Castle is the perfect venue for this. The Castle is set in the heart of the Cheshire countryside and is one of the top wedding venues in Cheshire if not the country. The Castle can accommodate weddings of up to 160 guests and also has accommodation and parking for your guests so they don’t have to worry about that drive home or trying to book a taxi.

The History of the Venue

Very few locations in England are as rich in history and legend as Peckforton Castle. It is a Grade I listed building. The architect of the castle was James Wyatt, who also designed the Houses of Parliament. The first recorded owner of the castle was William de Peckforton, who was granted the estate by William the Conqueror in 1066. The castle has had several owners over the years and has also been let by the Royal Air Force and a boy’s school.

Weddings at the Venue

If you want a venue with the wow factor you will be hard-pressed to find a better venue than Peckforton Castle. The whole building is steeped in history going back hundreds and hundreds of years. The Great Hall, the library, the dining room and the red sandstone walls are just some of the amazing features of the venue.

Wedding Photography at the Venue

There are so many amazing places for photography at the venue. From the lodge, the bridal suite, and the Great Hall to name just a few and that is just inside the castle. Once you go outside you have the most amazing backdrop you could ever wish for with your wedding party standing on the lawn and the castle in the background.

My Take on Peckforton Castle.

Of course, I would love to be your Peckforton Castle Wedding Photographer. The location of the venue makes it an ideal location for that special wedding most couples can only dream of.

I have photographed several weddings at the venue and have got several more already booked in the next few years. Do I want to photograph more at the venue, yes of course I do. There are so many different locations you can shoot at the venue no two weddings will ever be the same.

The staff at the venue are amazing and will ensure your wedding day is everything you have dreamed of. There is also the option of having a toastmaster, a violinist, a harpist, etc for that extra special touch to your day.
