Brides and bridal parties may take photos with our llamas using ShangriLlama Castle as their backdrop. These magical photos will be cherished for a lifetime! Bridal photo sessions last up to two hours for a flat $300 fee to use the castle grounds.
Brides may attend alone or with their maids of honor, groom, ushers and a photographer with his/her assistant. Parents, of course, are welcome. Please limit attendance to this list. Our insurer does not allow children younger than 4 years old on the castle grounds. Once your bridal photo shoot date is confirmed, please send the Llama Queen your attendance guest list.
Release of Liability Form
Our insurer requires every photo shoot participant to sign this Release of Liability Form. Please forward this form to everyone on your photo shoot guest list, and return the signed forms when you arrive as your admission ticket.
In addition to bridal photography in front of the castle gatehouse, you are also welcome to take pictures in the enchanted forest and in front of any props located around the grounds. These include:
The castle’s llama handlers will guide the llamas to the castle locations you have chosen for your bridal photo shoot. If the weather is hot or rainy, llama photography can only take place in the castle barn. Please bring professional lighting and a backdrop for indoor photography.
ShangriLlama Castle is a private facility in Royse City, Texas, operated by a family. For the privacy of this family who live at the castle, and for the safety of their beautiful, pedigreed llamas, the castle’s address is only provided when a reservation is made. The castle itself is gated, and the llamas are not visible from the street. All visitors require an advance reservation. Thank you for your understanding.
