Christmas on Amelia Island – Candlelight Caroling at Fort Clinch

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography

With Christmas literally right around the corner, and with lots of blog posts yet to be posted, I thought what better way to get posting than to highlight a shoot we did for our friends at Amelia Island for the holidays!  On the northern tip of the island is a beautiful Civil-War era fort, named Fort Clinch.  On the first Saturday of December, the folks at Fort Clinch welcome the public to participate in some great 1860’s-era caroling under the stars.  With a raging bonfire and voices raised high, we sang a wealth of pre-1860 carols as the moon rose over the canon-lined ramparts.  Along with the period singing, this immersive walk into 1860’s holiday living included a variety of living displays, depicting the joys and traditions of a Civil War era Christmas.    This will definitely be a tradition for the Deremer Household for years to come!
