This was our first wedding at Stapleford Park Country House and its an extremely impressive venue for a wedding. It’s rich in history and offers a wealth of stunning locations throughout the house and across the beautifully landscaped gardens.
We had met Hannah before as she had been a bridesmaid at two previous weddings that we had photographed and was honoured to know that she only wanted us as her wedding photographers.
The bridal prep was relaxed with lots of laughter. With Hannah being a school teacher we were not surprised to see that she had been very thorough with all the wedding preparations. So as you can imagine everything just flowed perfectly as all the ladies got ready. This allowed us to get a lovely mixture of natural and portrait photos.
Phil is a great character and was definitely on top form today. It was so easy to photograph him and the groomsmen. In fact looking back at the photos with them all together still makes us laugh.
The ceremony was held in the orangery which offered lots of natural light. Hannah looked absolutely stunning as she walked down the aisle with her very proud father on her arm. Phil just beamed with the biggest smile as Hannah made her way towards him. The ceremony was a personal affair with some lovely readings and lots of laughter.
We photographed the formal group photos whilst the guests enjoyed a glass of fizz and canopes. We then proceeded to capture some lovely natural and romantic photos throughout the stunning grounds. Sadly time was against us and we had to return inside for the wedding breakfast.
The top table were all introduced into the room in their pairs with their own soundtrack being played. This was greeted with great laughter and appreciation from all the guests as each couple danced their way towards the top table.
The speeches were both humorous and heartfelt. Each person delivering a well-written speech with lots of personal stories.
Our day ended with the traditional cake cutting followed by a fun first dance which had lots of cheering from the crowd that had surrounded the dance floor.
We felt so honoured to photograph this wedding, so thank you Hannah & Phil for allowing us to be part of such a brilliant day!
This is what the couple had to say:
“Our wedding day was the most magical day of our lives. We had spent so much time planning and organising everything that we just wanted everything to be how we imagined and for everyone to have the best day. We can honestly say that it was the most perfect day and Jonathan and his team captured every moment of our day for us to look back on and enjoy. The photos are stunning and can be seen in many of our families homes! We love reminiscing on our day with family and friends and just wish we could relive the day again and again!”
