Wedding Fit for a Queen at the Belhurst Castle

The Belhurst Castle, located in Geneva, NY was the backdrop for Sarah and Brian’s wedding; the day couldn’t have been more perfect and the wedding more eloquent. No detail was spared, from the center pieces that Sarah meticulously created herself to the chuppah that Brian built out of lumber from nearby woods – with his groomsmen assisting with the finishing touches.

Sarah began her day at Scott Miller Salon & Spa around 10am for hair and makeup before returning to the Belhurst in Geneva for final preparations. Set facing Seneca Lake, the ceremony was perfectly executed with a very classy-dressed bridal party in black with bride’s maids holding green, long-stemmed lilies. Sarah’s dress couldn’t have been more perfect for the venue and was absolutely brilliant!

For her wedding photographs, Sarah wanted a high-end, fashion magazine feel – this translated toward more contrast and moodier photographs to arrive at wedding photographs with an edge. For some of the black and whites, I experimented with adding an ever-so-slight blueish cast to just the shadow areas. This made the photos stand out from a traditional, straight black and white print. I think it’s key however to strike a balance between the high-end fashion and classical – therefore not every photograph was treated with an edgy look.

Carmen and the entire staff at Belhurst are top-notch; if you’re looking for a truly spectacular location for your wedding, take a look at the Belhurst Castle in Geneva, NY. Below are a few of my favorite photographs from Sarah & Brian’s Belhurst wedding. Enjoy! And, a special thanks to Sarah & Brian for being such an easy couple to work with and so laid back! 🙂
