Wedding Photography at a Medieval Ceremony

Kryal Castle suits medieval weddings. The grounds have towers, a grand arena, courtyards, archways and stonework which provides elements for stunning wedding photo compositions. Kryal Castle creator Keith Ryal, together with his wife Joyce are featured in the images below. The amazing brainchild of one man- Keith Ryall- Kryal Castle was completed over 30 years ago, and has long been a prominent landmark on Mt Warrenheip, just east of Ballarat.

Brides can be fitted for gowns at the Castle. Grooms, groomsmen, bridesmaids and flowergirls can all have authentic medieval dresses, suits and outfits fitted on the spot, adding an air of authenticity to the proceedings.

The chapel at Kryal Castle has the ambience of medieval times, lighting is predominantly from candles; and there is a limited amount of daylight spilling through very small windows along the chapel walls. This provides excellent conditions for dark indoor wedding photography, we avoid the use of flash or auxillary lighting, to retain the medieval wedding mood of the occasion.
