Wedding at the Tower in Mold, North Wales

The Tower - venue in North Wales - at sunset

North Wales has plenty of stunning wedding venues on offer and the countryside is what makes this location even more beautiful. Justine and Aaron chose to have their wedding at Tower in Mold in July 2019.


About Tower

Tower is a very unusual and beautiful venue that is perfect for weddings and other events. Located close to Chester, Tower is a Grade-I listed building nestled in its own parkland in Mold, North Wales. Despite being conveniently placed next to roads such as the A55 and the A494 for easy access, you still feel like you’re in the middle of the peaceful Welsh countryside. The building is hidden from the road and boasts stunning views of the grounds and the large pond. This makes the perfect backdrop for an outdoor wedding, just like the one of Justine and Aaron.

The property has been owned by the same family for 500 years so, if you want a venue with tonnes of history, this is the one for you. Tower was built to guard against any attacks from the English, but I’m sure anyone is most welcome in the venue today.


The Wedding of Justine and Aaron

Justine chose to get ready in one of the Tower’s many beautiful bedrooms. One of my favourite shots is this one, where we can see Justine looking at herself in the mirror the makeup artist is holding up. You can see the true character of the building, with it’s lead windows and beautiful shutters that fold into the wall.

This building is also a dream to shoot in. The beautiful decor makes every photo look stunning, while I can get shots like the one below due to the way the rooms are laid out in the corridor. Bridal prep is one of my favourite aspects of the day, and these kinds of photos show why.

Justine’s dress was a beautiful satin fit-to-flare dress from The Silk Loft that came right in at the waist and flowed out from above the knee to the floor, with an exceptional train to end.

Justine and Aaron were praying for nice weather on the day of their wedding in July, as they’d planned a beautiful outdoor ceremony, complete with a flower arch to get married in front of and the beautiful pond as a backdrop. The rain is not always predictable but, despite being cloudy, it held off.

Justine wore minimal jewellery and kept her hairdo quite informal in a half up/down style. Her colour theme for the day was pastel pink and green, as you can see from her dad’s tie and pocket hanky and her flowers. The bridesmaids’ were pretty in pastel, as their dresses were a gorgeous pastel green/blue colour, almost like a light turquoise and these matched the groom’s tie and pocket hanky.

The rest of the groomsmen, like the father of the bride, wore pastel pink ties and light grey suits.

If we haven’t already determined this, Tower makes for an excellent photo backdrop. The opportunities here are almost endless, which is why it’s one of my favourite venues.

The cake matched the rest of Justine and Aaron’s colour scheme, incorporating both the pastel green and pinks from the rest of the day. The iced details on the flowers are unbelievable and it’s a simple but stunning design.

I love taking images of a venue throughout the day as it can change so much from morning to night. I snuck away from the wedding and captured these images of Tower at sunset, when the uplights and fairy lights are on and the pond is still. I just love the colour of that sky.
