Casterton Grange Estate Wedding

Henrietta and Matthew’s Casterton Grange Estate Wedding, was one of my favourites during the  2023 Wedding Season. I say one of my favourites for a few reasons. First and foremost, Henrietta & Matthew are a beautiful couple and they were an absolute delight and pleasure to film. Not only are they a very handsome looking couple, but they were both very easy going and relaxed on the day.   They didn’t hide thier emotions either,  they fully embraced the day and the joy they experienced was clearly evident to all present.

You could also see just how much in love ,this couple were. They didn’t hide that fact in front of the camera  (see the video) which always makes my job easier as I really don’t like to manipulate or pose a couple too much but prefer to let them just be natural :)

This is what I truly love about my job.   I get to film people on one of the happiest days of their lives and create something truly special for them to be able to enjoy forever!  Their choice of Wedding venue was just the perfect backdrop for what was,  a personal and intimate wedding. It was shared by a small number of family and close friends.  So let’s talk about Casterton Grange Estates…

Casterton Grange Estate

Casterton Grange is a lovingly restored countryside estate situation between the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. This estate is almost hiddden in the Northern English countryside and it gives you the feel of a ‘get away from it all’ type of wedding venue.

If you are looking for a wedding venue in the North of England that has an intimate feel, that has charm and character, is set in stunning grounds with beautiful gardens., then this might just be it?

With a  wedding team that takes very good care of their couples and one that also pay attentions to even the smallest of details, I think you’d be hard pressed to find anything quite like it.

The Grounds & Gardens

This quintessential country estate has beautiful manicured gardens and at the rear of the House you will find a garden area just made perfect for outdoor weddings. It was here, in fact,  that Henrietta & Matthew had their wedding ceremony.  This area is almost encircled by tall trees, which really does lend itself to the very intimate nature of this setting, a bit magical really!

I was so taken with this setting when I first discovered it, that even though I had already got a drone shot of the venue and surroundings;  I legged it back to the car to again grab the drone and get a birds eye drone shot of this ceremony area, which I ended up using in Henrietta & Matthew’s Wedding Film. (you can see that below)

Following the ceremony we headed to the Italianate terraces and Walled garden- an amazing space to take the couple and get some intimate shots shooting through the lavender and other flora & fawner.

We ended up with an amazing sunset, so myself and the photographer Kamila were able to make the most of the beautiful space which was enhanced by some beautiful golden hour light, just perfect!

The Ceremony…

I have already alluded to the intimate nature of this venue and a Casterton Grange Wedding,  and this was enhanced in Henrietta and Matthew’s case by the lovely Kerrie Low from Birds & Bees. Kerrie’s ceremony had a very personal feel to it, as if she had known Henrietta & Matthew for years. She even mentioned the couple’s foibles and querks during the ceremony which raised a laugh or two.

The Evening

We enjoyed a truly amazing sunset that day and everyone just wanted to be outside into the evening enjoying the beautiful Casterton Grange surroundings. Eventually though, it was time to head inside for the first dance and Henrietta’s brother had a surprise planned.

He was going to serenade the couple with his guitar to a rendition of Le Vie En Rose (see video) Henrietta & Matthew enjoyed this intimate moment encircled by everyone in the orangerie;  after which they were joined on the dance floor by all kicking up their heels  and dancing the night away, a fitting end to an amazing day!

As this was first time filming a Casterton Grange Estate Wedding I wanted to write this Blog about it to share,  not only this wedding but also the venue.

I certainly hope to shoot another Casteron Grange Estates Wedding in the not too distant future and share more from this hidden Gem of a venue in the Lancashire Countryside.  I think more people should know about.
