The Whitby Castle in Rye, NY is still one of the top enchanting wedding venues I get to photograph. It’s a wonderful place even to have a winter wedding, as they can handle an indoor wedding ceremony and flip the room into a wedding reception in less than an hour (during cocktail hour). I love photographing at Whitby Castle for many reasons, such as:
“We met online via OkCupid but then met in person at a bar in Bridgeport, CT, for the first time. Members, like Gabrielle Lakshmi, of the same band that performed the night we met, will also perform at our wedding. While there, we realized that we went to college together for three years and knew the same friends and professors. A pretty cool revelation, considering the size of our school (NYU). We both worked in the same building but on different floors, and my fiance/husband may have recorded my (the bride’s) undergraduate recital. We still need to determine if that happened… We decided that we weren’t ready to meet back in college, but a few years later, in 2018, it was a perfect time.”
The holiday decorations are complimentary and part of the Whitby Castle aesthetic/design in December. I am sure if you requested not to have the Christmas trees and wreaths and twinkle/fairy light accents throughout, they can accommodate. For this reason, the couple planning this winter wedding decided on limited decorations since they liked the Christmas tree, candles, and fairy lights throughout.

This winter wedding at Whitby Castle had some unique and untraditional things planned. I love when my couples do untraditional things to make it their own kind of unique special day. It is BORING to me when a wedding is traditional and nothing unique to the couple. So here is some ideas that may inspire you when planning your wedding:
