Fireworks at Hazlewood Castle
From time to time I have seen photographs of fireworks at Hazlewood Castle, and whilst we’ve photographed fireworks all over North Yorkshire at venues like
Ripley Castle, Swinton Park, and Rudding Park to name a few, we have never come across them at Hazlewood Castle until recently.
Fireworks are notoriously difficult to photograph, get the exposure too long, and all you get is heavy white streaks in the image, whereas what you really need is some colour. If the exposure is too short, you just get the odd blip of colour, but no shape or pattern to the display.
Linsey and Chris had an action packed wedding, culminating in a fireworks display for all their guests.
Linsey’s dad built in a few surprises for the couple on the day, which included Elvis singing to guests during the speeches, a chimney sweep for luck, doves were released after the meal, and the main members of the bridal party had planned a choregraphed dance routine which they performed as an extension to the first dance.
During the service, Chris and Linsey were serenaded by a group who sang Hallelujah from the balcony of Hazlewood Castle Chapel, this was one of my favourite parts of the day, together with some quiet time with the bride and groom in the afternoon, and of course, the fireworks. A very full but very enjoyable wedding at Hazlewood Castle.
