Lauren and Sam’s Lulworth Castle Wedding Photographs

Tom started this bright sunny wedding day in Swanage while I travelled to the Weld arms in Lulworth both excited to be taking some Lulworth castle wedding photographs. You can see more of our Lulworth Castle wedding photographs here.

Lulworth Castle Wedding Photographs of Bridal Preparation

The house in Swanage was a buzz of activity with all the girls doing their hair and make up. Lauren was very relaxed and jovial, especially when she saw a brothers cleanly shaven face for the first time in years.

Flowers arrived from Hill View Flowers after which it was time for Lauren and the girls to get into their dresses. The wedding dress was ivory with beautiful lace detail and the bridesmaids were in Grecian green dresses. Outside the wedding transport had arrived. Two buses from wedding Weddingwagons (one of our recommended Dorset wedding transport suppliers) and a classic Morris minor.

Lulworth Castle Wedding Photographs of Groom Preparation

After finding the chaps at St Andrew’s church checking in with the florist from Hill View Flowers we all headed down the road to the Weld Arms. While Sam and his best man were getting ready other groomsmen and a number of guests arrived for a pre wedding drink.

Sam received a ‘Grooms Survival Kit’ from his wife to be. Inside was number of little presents for the groom to be. These included a silver pocket watch, a personalised book, socks for cold feet and a  Jack Daniels miniature. After a perfectly placed pocket watch had been added to Sam’s wedding attire the gents made their way to St Andrew’s church located within the grounds of Lulworth castle. Here more guests were gathering, Sam greeted them before heading inside to see the vicar.

Wedding Ceremony Photographs at Lulworth Castle Church

The Bridal party arrived in convoy and could be seen making their way up the driveway to the church. Once assembled they were joined by the page-boy (who would be ring bearer for the day). He and his mother led the party into the church. During the wedding service the happy couple made their promises after which two readings were delivered from the pulpit.

The register was signed the newly weds came down the aisle as husband and wife to rapturous applause. As the church emptied guests were armed with confetti. The new Mr and Mrs made their way towards the wedding cars through a shower of confetti.

The bride, groom and bridesmaids made full use of the wedding cars as guests made the walk to the castle. As recommended Lulworth Castle wedding photographers we were so happy to see the familiar sight of this stunning building. The guests assembled on the grand staircase outside and waited to greet them. Lauren arrived being driven by Sam in the classic Morris Minor. Following the newly weds the bridesmaids arrived in the two VW buses.

With all wedding transport and guests arranged we took a group photograph with the newly weds stood up in the car before heading to the rose garden for welcome drinks. Here to entertain while the guests enjoyed drinks and canapés were a barbershop quartet. After a small number of group pictures we headed inside the castle to see the amazing decorations. The team from Hill View Flowers had created eight impressive floral tall centerpieces and a top table arrangement. The table names were different types of tea from ‘Chai’ to ‘Ceylon’ with the top table ‘English Breakfast’.

Lulworth Castle Wedding Photographs of Speeches and Evening Entertainment

Once the room was checked the guests were asked to come in and take their places. The newly weds were welcomed in with cheers and whistles (even a fist bump for Sam) as they made their way to the top table. With everyone in place it was time for the wedding breakfast supplied by Beales Gourmet Catering. Father of the bride kicked off the speeches followed by the groom and best man.

After the speeches the bride and groom cut the cake with the sword from the suit of armour watching over them. Cake cut the guests made they way to the Saloon to await the first dance. This took place against the backdrop of a large Mr and Mrs illuminated sign from Doris Loves. It wasn’t long before most wedding guests joined them on the dance floor. Others made use of the home-made photo booth.
