A Late Fall Wedding at St. Clements Castle, Connecticut

As New England Wedding Photographers, it’s really exciting to get to document our couples all over this beautiful region comprising six states in the Northern United States. And this past wedding season we were lucky enough to travel to all of them for work. While we get to call Boston home, it’s fun to travel outside Massachusetts on a regular basis, too. Couples from all over the United States have found us. Our couples are often from New England, but usually will have moved outside this region. Sometimes California or New York, or even outside the country. So we’re often meeting and working with couples all over the country. 

This is exactly the case of M & R, who get to call San Diego home, but were getting married at the beautiful St. Clements Castle in CT, where R’s family is from. Built in the late 1800s, this historic Castle has 16th Century European vibes throughout it. 

Having their wedding on a late November day, M & R decided to have a first look at the Waterford Courtyard. We totally recommend doing a first look if you’re having a late fall/winter wedding. The late fall New England sun sets at around 4:00pm. This means that by the time the ceremony is over, there will be no more natural light outside. This means no golden hour photos - unless of course, you decide to do a first look on your wedding day! 

Despite the late fall day, we were incredibly lucky to get a mildly cold day full of sunshine. This was wonderful and allowed us to take advantage of the venue’s beautiful grounds for photos. We were really inspired and were able to get quite creative during M & R’s golden hour photos. Check out what the venue had to say! 

Well, let’s take a look at their beautiful day, shall we? Congrats M & R! We were so honored to have captured your day!
