Dunafon castle is a prestigious wedding venue located in Idledale a small mountain town just outside of Denver Colorado. The castle is closed to the public so the only way to visit is to attend one of 30 weddings they host a year. I was very excited to be selected as lead photographer by Classic Photographers for a September 2021 fall wedding. I grew up in a town in the UK that has a castle so I could not wait to photograph this one.
When I arrived my car was parked by a valet and I walked into the grounds that looked pristine and very well kept. The castle has a moat around it and I immediately saw the gazebo and castle reflecting into the water. The interior is designed to look like an old castle with a dungeon and banquet hall.
I worked with second shooter Ian Miller who photographed the groom and groomsmen getting ready while i photographed the ladies. The bride chose a fabulous beaded dress with a long veil and via a zoom meeting i suggested that we should try a veil toss photo. I thought the white dress and veil would look great contrasting against the green leaves on the castle wall.
