Beautiful, that’s really the best single word I can come up with to describe Rachel and Connor’s Dunafon Castle Wedding. It was also quite the wedding for accents, friends and family from Australia, Germany, and in addition to Dain Linder my usual associate photographer I had the pleasure of having fine art film photographer Lisa O’Dwyer join us who had recently relocated to northern Colorado from Ireland. I’ll have a post up soon with an interview with Lisa and a peek at some of the wonderful images she captured that day.
For myself I also shot a fair amount of medium format film that you’ll see in the posts below – digital or film – it was hard to go wrong on this amazing wedding.
Friends and Family – I have a special gallery site setup just for this wedding. Connor and Rachel’s Wedding Collection while the images aren’t up yet be sure to go bookmark the site – what’s special about this site is I’ve got a lab in Australia partnering with it – at the end of the post I’ll show you how to switch deliver and costs form US shipping and dollars to Australian shipping and currency.
The bouquet from Stems of Evergreen with white roses and blue thistle was just simply stunning and perfect for this wedding.
The brides dress, veil and bridesmaids dresses where hand made in a small family dress shop outside of Perth.
Of course when a father sees his little girl in her wedding dress on this special day it’s always a wonderful moment.
Randy Arent of Denver Bagpiper was on hand to make the setting complete.
And of course the first look as Connor sees his bride approaching from the Castle.
While portraits take up such a small amount of time from the day – Dain and I have gotten pretty darn good over the years of making the best of that time. After family shots we knocked these out in under 20-25 minutes. Lots of film here.

And epic from the roof to the dance floor bouquet toss.

Friends and Family – OK so here’s how to switch things over for those of you in Australia for Rachel and Connor’s Wedding Collection.
When you enter a specific gallery you’ll notice the featured products to the left – drop down the box where it says USD and change shipping to Australia and prices in AUD and it will switch over to ordering from the lab in Australia – for those in the states just leave it as USD. If any of the guests from the EU want to order prints let me know and I’ll get something setup.
