Kryal Castle Wedding Photography

Medieval weddings at Kryal Castle are like stepping back in time. Guests dress up in costume, the authentic bluestone castle lends an atmosphere to the event that takes guests back in time. The medieval wedding shown on this page was officiated by ceremonial marriage celebrant Tricia Juster-Schofield. We have provided medieval wedding photography to Kryal Castle for decades. The wedding featured here is a significant one- outgoing King and Kryal Castle creator Keith Ryall features in some of the wedding photos with the bridal party.

With dark lighting reminiscent of a tavern, the atmosphere in the chapel of Kryal Castle lends incredible authenticity to a medieval wedding. Muted daylight and candlelight provide soft illumination, and the stepped seating ensures everyone gets a clear view of the ceremony.
