As autumn changes to winter, the leaves are dropping and the air is chilled. Beautiful colours span across the English countryside: red, orange and green. Scotney Castle has always been, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful places in the world. With it’s lush grounds, beautiful ruins and historic manor it is a great venue for weddings or simply to visit with your family. I grew up visiting the area and took Oscar there for the first time recently (he loves exploring castles!) Here’s a photo blog about this stunning place: Scotney Castle wedding venue.
“They told of dripping stone walls in uninhabited castles and of ivy-clad monastery ruins by moonlight, of locked inner rooms and secret dungeons, dank charnel houses and overgrown graveyards, of footsteps creaking upon staircases and fingers tapping at casements, of howlings and shriekings, groanings and scuttlings and the clanking of chains, of hooded monks and headless horseman, swirling mists and sudden winds, insubstantial specters and sheeted creatures, vampires and bloodhounds, bats and rats and spiders, of men found at dawn and women turned white-haired and raving lunatic, and of vanished corpses and curses upon heirs.” – Susan Hill
This is one of my favourite photo sets yet, the autumnal colours make me fall in love with the grounds even more and just showcase the true beauty of the area. The reflections that scatter the moat give it a picturesque feel and I’m so excited to share this with everyone! It’s a large photo set, but I had to show off just how gorgeous it was. (Plus, Oscar wanted to get in and model for me!)
Here is the latest addition to my personal photography series.
