A beautiful Lincolnshire Wedding with a literature theme and a pretty soft pink & blue palette

Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful Lincolnshire Wedding with a literature theme and a pretty soft pink & blue palette.

The couple are Emily and Pete and they were married at Tattershall Castle before  lovely reception at Abbey Farm.

Images were captured by 166 Photography.

166 Photography are Carl and Lisa, a husband and wife photography team based in Boston, Lincolnshire, but available to work throughout the U.K.


I hand over the team to tell you about their work and the couples big day…


“Hello, we are 166 Photography, Carl is Photographer and I (Lisa) am Creative Director.”

“As a photographer, Carl delivers photographs that are honest and beautiful.”

“With our simple approach of one photographer and one assistant, we are able to capture the natural beauty of the wedding day unobtrusively without it feeling like a photoshoot.”

“As documentary wedding photographers, our aim is to tell the story of the day through honest, beautiful images.”

“Apart from during any required group shots we do not direct, in fact there will not even be the mention of the word “cheese”.

“Our aim is that when couples view their photographs, they are transported back in time to their most wonderful day.”


“I know Emily’s mum and had worked with her as a teacher.”

“She asked if I would be interested in photographing her daughters wedding. At this point I knew nothing of the wonderful venue, nor had I met Emily & Pete.”

“A meeting was arranged by Emily’s mum and we hit of off with Emily & Pete straight away.”

“That moment when you meet with brides and grooms-to-be for the first time and you know you will work well together, it was great.”

“We discussed plans, their vision matched ours and together we came up with some great ideas for potential shots as we walked the grounds of Tattershall Castle.”


“We arrived on the day to Emily’s parents house with things in full swing. It was a mixture of calm and nerves.”

“Preparations were well under way and there was the usual laughter and watery eyes that accompany this time of day.”

“We were welcomed as if we were guests at the wedding and took shots candidly as we shared a laugh with the bridal party.”

“We arrived at the Castle the same time as the groom and his nerves were easily visible.”

“The ceremony was beautiful; held in the parlour of the Castle with its high ceilings and gorgeous stained glass windows.”

“Emily and Pete had written their own vows which were so personal and clearly reflected their relationship and love for each other (and TV Boxsets!).”

“We had already met with them twice at the venue and had discussed in detail how they envisaged the photos on the day, its so important to get to know the couple to get a feel for what they really want and to discuss what is realistic.”

“Following the ceremony, we joined everyone outside to greet the newly weds before sneaking off up into the higher levels of the castle to set up ready for Emily and Pete to join us for some private photos.”

“We always advise the couple to take some time out at this point and come with us for some photos so that they can catch a breath and actually have a few minutes alone to properly say hello.”

“We love to hang back and get some shots of the moments that they relax together.”

“Following the formal shots around the beautiful grounds of the Castle, we headed off behind the stunning Rolls Royce carrying the couple to again have some private time with them on the picturesque banks of the River Witham, whilst everyone made their way to the reception.”

“The reception was held at the idyllic Abbey Farm on the outskirts of Woodall Spa.”

“The guests were all in the Garden awaiting the arrival of the couple and the atmosphere was infectious with fun and laughter making for some more great candid photographs.”

“The theme of the wedding from start to finish was literature which made for some amazing props such as the old typewriter in the bar area for guests to type messages on, and beautiful table decorations which were the perfect setting for the delicious food served by the Black Peppermint Food Company. ”

“The night ended with a fun and laughter filled Ceilidh which got everyone involved and made for some amazing photographs.”

“We then snuck out quietly and left the bride and groom to enjoy the rest of the night with their friends and family.”
