Stanbrook Abbey Wedding Photography
I recently had the pleasure of visiting the wonderful Stanbrook Abbey as a Photographer for the Wedding of Rachael and Mark, and what a fantastic experience it was. It was clear from the start that the day wasn’t just about the marrying couple but as much about bringing the family together to join in the celebration.
So as the Photographer my aim was clear, as usual to act as a documentary wedding photographer, capturing the day as it unfolds but also with the additional focus on the group and family photographs. Although not unusual as I fully appreciate the importance of the family photographs here it just seemed that little bit more important to the couple.
I started the day with a brief visit to the venue, I had previously met the couple there for a coffee but this was one dark and raining evening in March, so it was nice to have a good look around and to start capturing some of the scene setting establishing shots. It was then off to the brides house to join her and a few of her close friends whilst they were getting ready, the sun was shining and the atmosphere was relaxed so all was good.
I returned to the venue shortly before the ceremony, capturing the Groom as he made his final preparations and greeted guests as they arrived. The bride was led down the aisle of the Callow Great Hall by a young page boy and her bridesmaids, the surroundings of this grand former chapel making this a rather special moment.
After the ceremony it was into the sun for the tradition of Confetti throwing, drinks and and the family and group photographs. I then spent a little time with the bride and groom firstly outside by the lake then inside to enjoy a little bit of the natural light and classical backdrop of this fantastic venue.
The day continued as guests were led into the St Annes Hall for dining, speeches and a short break before the dancing started. Overall this was a beautiful family orientated day, but my writing does the day no justice so lets just look at the pictures!
