Lulworth Castle is one of those local wedding venues that had somehow always eluded me. So when Caitlin reached out to photograph her and Kit’s wedding there, I felt as giddy as a school girl. 

They each got ready in separate cottages just down the road, but I let Kit and the guys have a little space in the morning and stuck with the girls. Everyone was in high spirits and ready for the day, despite the sweltering midday sun that was beaming down on the south coast.

I whizzed off ahead to get down to the chapel on the Lulworth Estate for the ceremony. This is an absolutely beauty of a chapel, with loads of daylight beaming through the windows. The only challenge was not having a huge amount of space to move around, although thankfully not something a few sneaky manoeuvres couldn’t fix. 

Ceremony done, Caitlin and Kit whizzed off ahead for some quiet time at Lulworth Castle while the guests made their way over for some group shots and mingling.

The room inside was absolutely kitted out and is one of the most stunning wedding venue interiors I’ve ever seen. Hard to go too far wrong here, but we also had Melissa Rose Design on the flowers and ensuring everything looked immaculate. 

After the heat had subsided, we headed out for more photos and a quick breather away from the guests. I always recommend getting away for a few minutes to just have some alone time, and it’s a good excuse to get a few photos in the process. 

The dance floor was so bonkers that it was hard to drag everyone away for fireworks, although the crowd was eventually herded outside and we were treated to an amazing display. Caitlin and Kit headed further down ahead of everyone so we could catch some nice photos and to give them some space. 

An absolutely gorgeous day and hopefully not my last trip down to Lulworth Castle!



We are beyond thrilled to have had Stuart photograph our wedding. His photos are beautiful, thoughtfully shot, and capture the unexpected. On top of this, we found Stuart to be a great presence on our wedding day as he made things feel very easy and enjoyable. Thank you!
