Catherine and Alex’s Stubton Hall Wedding | Stubton Hall Wedding Photorapher | Stubton Hall Weddings

Summer already seems a long and distant memory, it was earlier this summer that I was fortunate enough to photograph the wedding of Catherine and Alex at the amazing Stubton Hall near Newark. A day of mixed showers and sunny spells, rounded off with a great sunset. Here we leave it to Catherine and Alex to provide the details and tell us about their wedding at Stubton Hall.

The Proposal

“Alex proposed in Newcastle, which is where we meet as students, many years ago! Alex wanted to go back to a place called Jesmond Dene, and specifically a waterfall here. However, we couldn’t find exact place, so he chose somewhere equally as beautiful by a river. It was a magically experience and fabulous to be back in Newcastle where it all started”

The Wedding Venue – Stubton Hall

Catherine  “Stubton Hall is the perfect wedding venue. It is set within beautiful grounds and the interior is equally as exquisite, perfect for photos and for the typical British weather! We knew from the moment we first looked around that no where else would match it as our wedding venue. ”

The wedding Theme

“We didn’t really have a specific theme, we wanted our wedding to be romantic,  stylish and modern but still retain some traditional elements. We feel the colour scheme achieved this alone, but choosing Stubton Hall as our wedding venue gave it the extra wow factor. The blues suits also made it look very modern.”

The Wedding Dress

“The dress was from Northallerton Bridal and designed by Mori Lee. It was the 5th dress I tried on and I knew as soon as put it on, that this was the one.

Flowers and Floral arrangements 

“Michelle from Jacaranda flowers provided our amazing wedding bouquets and table centrepieces. Catherine’s favourite flowers are the Cafe au Lait Dahlia and Peonies so she knew she wanted to use them. We even chose a June wedding for the peonies! Alex had already chosen the suits and cravat colour so this then helped us create the colour pallet for the flowers. Michelle is an artist when it comes to flowers and the end results were just amazing.”

The wedding ceremony took place in the bright and airy Music Room at Stubton Hall.

What were the main stand out and memorable moments for you both?

The main stand out moment has to be the wedding ceremony itself and exchanging our vows. We feel blessed to have been able to share this special time with our friends and family.

Which is your favourite photo / photographs from the day?

We love all the photos as Chris is fantastic photographer and is amazing at capturing the light. One of our favourites has to be the confetti shots. The happiness in our faces shows what day meant

The Bridesmaids Dresses and the Groomsmen’s Suits

“Catherine had four bridesmaids in total. Her sister was Maid of Honor, her cousin came over from America to join us, she also chose a very good friend from university and a life long friend who She actually used to babysit for They were dressed in pale grey which complimented the peach cravats really well”.

The guys went to Peter Posh in Birmingham. Alex chose them because they had a blue suit in the shade he wanted. He also chose the cravat colour as the peach  really popped out against the blue of the suit

The Orangery at Stubton Hall was the perfect setting for the wedding breakfast. “Styling was provided by Fran at Modern Heritage She is a magician when it comes to styling, Our wedding cake was supplied by No.82 Cake Studio, Darren produced an amazing and delicious cake. Our wedding favours were Macarons from Macaron Marlo, they made them specific to our colour scheme and we were able to choose the flavours too (which were amazing!).”

Stubton-Hall-weddings-award-winning-weddding-photographer

How did you personalise the wedding day to the two of you?

“We created our own photo booth with props as our guest book. We used a Polaroid cameraso guests could take group photos and then write us a personal message. We are so pleased we did this as it great to look through, bringing back some fab memories. Plus the photos and message get more hilarious as the evening went on!”

Any tips to brides currently planning their wedding?

Catherine “My main tip would be don’t stress and just enjoy the day.  Take five minutes to sit down with your new husband and just spend a moment together. It is so important to reflect on the ceremony and pause to take in the day together.”

The Proposal

“Bryan proposed in July 2018, we were on holiday in Croatia and visiting the Krka waterfalls near Split. Bryan proposed in front of the waterfalls”

The Wedding Venue – Wentbridge House

We looked at several different wedding venues, one of the factors we had to take into account was the time constraints, Bryan proposed in July 2018 and we really wanted a Summer 2019 wedding date. We fell in love with Wentbridge House, friendly staff and great service, amazing food and atmosphere in an elegant wedding venue.

Wentbridge House Wedding Photographer - Wentbridge House Wedding

Saying Yes to the Wedding Dress

I chose my dress from Broughton’s Bridals in Garforth. The dress was a Mori lee design.  I tried six dresses in total and this was the last one to try.

The Bridal Party

The bridesmaids dresses were a real last minute purchase, we’d been let down in our original choices and so bought the dress from Misguided. We chose the style because of the blue colour which really complimented our theme. The Groomsmen’s suits were from Broughton’s Bridal in garforth and again the colour matched the theme perfectly.

Wentbridge House Wedding Photographer - Wentbridge House Wedding

Wentbridge House Wedding Photographer - Wentbridge House Wedding

Personalising your wedding day

We wanted a classic and elegant theme to the wedding with some modern elements, we used acrylic for a lot of our styling, table plan etc. We also used previous holiday destinations for our table names and included a Polaroid style photo of us from each of the Holidays. The top table was named Florida in anticipation of our honeymoon whilst the bridal party’s table was Croatia after where were engaged.

We donated money to Dogs Trust and also had scratch cards for all guests that were used for free drinks at the bar.

Wentbridge House Wedding Photographer - Wentbridge House Wedding

Wedding flowers and Venue styling

Michelle’s Flowers of Pontefract provided our wedding flowers, we chose White Roses for a modern elegant theme. We also had floating candles and used acrylic to create a more modern feel.

Wentbridge House Wedding Photographer - Wentbridge House Wedding

The First Dance

I had two choices from Ellie Goulding, we chose to dance to “Still Falling for You” we like Ellie Goulding and the lyrics were especially relevant. My other choice would have also been from Ellie Goulding and so I chose this to walk down the aisle to the song “Love me Like you do”

Wentbridge House Wedding Photographer - Wentbridge House Wedding

Stand out moments from your Wedding Day

“On the morning during our bridal preparations I opened a bridal box from Bryan, we used acrylic in out venue styling and he’d match the acrylic theme with a plaque announcing a surprise trip to New York”

“Standing outside the ceremony room waiting for the doors to open and make my entrance. When the doors opened it was such a special moment seeing Bryan standing and waiting fro me at the end of the aisle whilst all our guest looked back”

“On of the pupils form my school sand during the wedding ceremony, Travis used to be one of my pupils and it was really special to have him there singing”

“Later in the day we had Sarah from Sarah on Sax playing Ibiza anthems on the dance floor, surrounded by family and freinds enjoying themselves and having a great time is a memory taht will stick with me for a long long time. ”

Tips for brides planning their wedding day

“Try and enjoy every aspect of the wedding planning and also do what’s right for you and your partner, rather than bow to pressure”

“On the day take a step back,  the day goes so quickly it’ll be over in a flash so take time out to saviour the moment together”

Which is your Favourite Photograph from the wedding day?

There are just to many, the photos are amazing and really tell the story of the day. If I had to pick there’d be two, any of the ones from when Hugo, our dog joined us for the drinks reception and also the photo of Bryan looking back down the aisle at me, the doors had just opened and it was our first look to each other, a very special moment”

Charlotte and Nick’s Rudding Park Wedding | Rudding Park wedding photography | Harrogate wedding photographer

Rudding park Harrogate wedding Photography

Earlier this year Charlotte and Nick were married at All Saints Church in Spofforth before celebrating at Rudding Park near Harrogate. We joined Charlotte for bridal preparations at Rudding park before catching up with Nick and the groomsmen at All Saints church before the wedding ceremony, but that’s enough from me, lets leave it to Nick and Charlotte to tell us a little about their wedding day and celebrations at Rudding Park.

Rudding park Harrogate wedding Photography

The proposal

Could there be a more idyllic setting for a wedding proposal? “Nick proposed to me on a beach at sunset in Mauritius”

The wedding venue – Ruddying Park Hotel, Harrogate Yorkshire

Rudding Park was our first choice for many reasons – we live very close by and have spent lots of time here, we have always thought it to be the perfect wedding venue which allowed us to have the intimate wedding that we wanted for 50 guests through the day but to increase numbers for the evening party. It lived up to all expectations and we had the most wonderful wedding day.

Rudding park Harrogate wedding Photography

Saying Yes to the wedding dress

I was lucky and found may wedding dress very quickly- it was purchased from Ava Rose Hamilton, Silsden and was a Martina Liana design. I only tried on 5 but knew immediately that this was ‘the one’.

The Groomsmen suits

​We wanted a traditional look for the day – We chose morning suits for Nick and the groomsmen, these were from Charles Tyrwhitt.

Rudding park Harrogate wedding Photography

The flowers and colour theme

​We kept our wedding theme traditional with a classic white and grey colour scheme ​Colette at Rudding Park provided all the amazing flowers which were all white, mainly roses

The First Dance ​

We danced to Amazed by Lonestar – a reminder of when we very first got together 10 years ago

What were your most memorable moments on your wedding day?

​”It’s so difficult to choose – the whole day was magical! Seeing each other for the first time in Church, spending time with our nearest and dearest and the evening fireworks.”

Your tips for bride and grooms planning their wedding day?

“That’s easy….Try and enjoy it – it doesn’t need to be stressful. Just make the day about the two of you and if you can, grab 10 minutes to yourselves on the day to take it all in as it really does go as quickly as everyone tells you!”

A new wedding venue for us was Priory Cottages near Wetherby, although there have been plenty of wedding photography enquiries for the priory Cottages, this was the first time we were actually available.

Emma and James were marrying outside, the courtyard structure and open fronted barn allows cvil ceremonies to be almost completely outdoors, just the bride and groom and registrars inside the glass doors and well within sight and ear shot of the intimate wedding party. The brief for the day was for a more relaxed and informal set up with a minimal number of group photographs to take, we had plenty of time to create the natural candid wedding photographs that Emma and James had requested.

Thankfully in such beautiful surroundings as the Priory Cottages and expansive farmland Emma and James were happy to pop out for a short photo session after the meal, making the most of the glorious evening light and sunset to create a quick set of wedding photographs that will look amazing in their wedding photograph album.

Woodlands Hotel Wedding Photographer | Dan and Joanne’s Wedding photographs at Woodlands Hotel Leeds | Leeds wedding photographer

Dan and Joanne were married at St John The Baptist church in Normanton before celebrating at Woodlands Hotel near Leeds. The following blog post includes many of the images we played on a slideshow during their evening reception.

Our Day began with groom preparation photos as Dan and his groomsmen prepared for the day ahead. Typically lasting around thirty to forty minutes, some images of the guys getting ready always make a superb couple of spreads in our Exclusive storybook wedding albums. Following groom preparation we headed off to Ackworth to join Joanne and her bridesmaids as they were finishing off their preparations and with make and hair dressing in full swing we had plenty to photograph.

It’s always good to have a priest who allows photography during the wedding ceremony, this meant I was able to position myself near the front whilst Sophie was photographing the wedding from the back of church. Working discreetly and keeping out of the way means we can still capture the key moments of the wedding ceremony without being too obtrusive.  The light and bright interior of St John’s works really well.

Following a little windy confetti throwing we made our way to Woodlands Hotel near Leeds for the wedding reception and rest of the days activities. Photographs with the wedding car followed by a number of family groups before everyone made their way indoors to complete the drinks reception before the wedding breakfast. The ideal opportunity to capture some candid moments as guests relaxed in the bar and public rooms of the hotel.

Wedding breakfast, speeches and evening reception all took place in Woodlands’ marquee which had been dressed in a classic and elegant white colour scheme with large illuminated D&J letters supplied by our friends at Elite Sound

Leeds Wedding Photographer | Marc and Sara’s Wedding Photography | Yorkshire Wedding Photography

Leeds Wedding Photographer | Marc and Sara’s Wedding Photographs | Yorkshire Wedding Photography

Following Marc and Sara’s recent  pre-wedding shoot It was good to catch up with them again on their wedding day. The weather on the pre-shoot had been bright, warm and sunny and it looked like the wedding day would benefit from the same fortuitous weather with high temperatures and clear skies forecast. Perfect for their wedding and wedding photographs. I know a lot of wedding photographers don’t enjoy photographing in bright sunny weather but for me the bright weather presents an opportunity to be come creative with the lighting and images and if worked correctly can deliver amazing results, hopefully you’ll agree as you scroll down to the wedding photos below.

Our day began with groom preparation photos as we joined Marc and the groomsmen as they prepared and finished dressing for the wedding.  Jeffery West Shoes and a Michelsberg tailored suit was the order of the day and great that Marc had gone with my recommendation and two of our favourite brands.  Preparation photos with the groom and groomsmen are available with our Exclusive Storybook albums and allows us to capture great images of the guys before they leave for the wedding.

With the groom preparation photographs complete we headed over to join Sara at her parents house a short journey away. As well as the location for Sara’s wedding day preparations, the wedding celebrations were also to be held here with a large marquee in the rear garden of the house.  Sara was in high spirits and her wedding day preparations were well underway as we joined her which meant we had plenty to photograph as well as the bridal details such as Sara’s stunning wedding dress, flowers and other items. Following make up photographs it was time for Sara to dress and an opportunity for us to steal a glimpse inside the amazing marquee provided by Coopers. 

The wedding ceremony took place at the nearby All Saints Church in the small village of Ledsham. Arriving at church in good time allowed us to photograph the wedding guests and also some more photos of Marc and the guys before Sara’s arrival planned arrival at 1.30. A friendly vicar allowed us the opportunity to photograph the ceremony from both the front and back of the church and so meant we were able to photograph more of the wedding ceremony, the dark wood interior of All Saints Ledsham working really well as a contrast against the bright sun coming through the windows.

Following the wedding ceremony and a few quick formal images outside church we had a window of time to take the photographs of Marc and Sara before we joined the rest of the guests back at Sara’s parents home. The pre-wedding shoot had allowed us to plan in a number of locations and given me some ideas for photographs so we were able to maximise the time and ensure our bride and groom were able to spend time with their wedding guests.

The wedding marquee was custom designed and planned to fit in with the landscaping of the garden allowing exposed flower beds and features to be incorporated into the layout and making it one of the best wedding marquees we have ever photographed. The bride interior also helped with the photographs of the speeches before the dance floor and darker portion were revealed ready for the first dance and evening celebrations. For the evening reception a large screen had been placed on the wll behind the bar to display our slideshow and same day edit, allowing Sara, Marc and their guests a sneak peak at a number of edited wedding photos.

Our wedding day coverage ended with our twilight images, the clear skies affording some wonderful views of the stars and hopefully a final wedding photograph they’ll both love. (Edit – they did it made the wedding album cover! )

Well into the evening celebrations we slipped away with Sara and Marc. From the days photography session I had a final image in mind and so with the help of multiple flashes we created the award winning wedding photograph below.

Peckforton Castle Wedding Photographer | Dan and Leanne’s Wedding Photos | Peckforton Castle wedding Photography

Dan and Leanne were married earlier this year at  Peckforton Castle in Cheshire.  The stunning castle wedding venue boasts amazing interiors,  architecture, grounds and so so many photo locations. Dan and Leanne chose a civil wedding ceremony which took place in the Great Hall before drinks reception on the courtyard lawns.

Following wedding breakfast and speeches Leanne changed dress for the evening reception and dancing, following first dance we were able to sneak away with them for a few photographs in the Wine Cellar and then outside as darkness fell. The illuminated castle making the perfect backdrop for their end of album wedding photographs.

The following wedding photographs include many of those we played on the large screen slideshow during the evening reception. For more details about this and our wedding packages please click here.
