FRAMLINGHAM CASTLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
After a quintessentially English church wedding in the stunning church in Framlingham, it was a short walk up the hill to the castle for a wedding reception inside the castle walls. But not before Janina and Sam were stopped at the castle gate for a traditional Polish bread & salt blessing. And followed later by more Polish vodka. Na Zdrowie!
Nina and Sam were married in Framlingham and had a short walk up the road to celebrate their marriage at Framlingham Castle. Framlingham Castle wedding photography is quite an unusual experience. As you are going into the castle the last of the visitors are going home, leaving the whole place to yourself. Some guests walked around the grounds in awe of the history of such a place – whilst others bought plastic swords from the gift shop and headed for the ramparts. Boys, tsk!
There was a Polish side to the wedding and it was the first time I had seen the traditional bread and salt ceremony from Polish weddings – and true to form, the vodka toasts came out later in the evening (around about the time things started to get a little hazy for some of the guests). Food carved at the tables was expertly done by many of the medical surgeons on hand although the vodka might have a little to with it as well.
Here are a few of my favourite images from the day.
