Lucy and Luke are the kind of couple every wedding professional hopes for- they are young, and in love, and embarking on a new life together with a positive, fun loving attitude. It makes for such a great day when you know there will be happy, smiling faces everywhere.
Having discussed their wedding plans with Lucy and Luke in detail I know that as quite often is the case, they had booked a videographer at the last minute. Not just because they found they had the budget after all, but because they weren’t sure they wanted a camera ‘in their faces’ the whole day. For any couples reading this and thinking that ‘in your face’ is inevitable, I am here to tell you that it is not! The way we do things is totally different. We have a great reputation in both photography and videographer for being very discreet and capturing the natural moments in a beautiful way.
I have been creating wedding videos at Barnsdale Hall for many years. In all I have ten years experience as a professional wedding photographer and wedding videographer. And many of those weddings have been held here at this great wedding venue. I know this venue very well and it’s one of the slickest wedding operations in Rutland. You’ll be well looked after at Barnsdale by the ever impressive Annie who never stops for a moment despite the fact she could have retired many years ago. She won’t mind me saying that! Barnsdale Hall Hotel as a wedding venue is a great choice for your wedding and prove one of the best views across Rutland Water. The only slight negative for me a s a wedding photographer is the outside space but if you have the time and the will to wonder down to the waters edge there are great opportunities for a once in a life time photo shoot. Fingers crossed you’ll get one of this beautiful sunsets they sometimes get over here.
If you think you would like to hold your wedding here at Barnsdale Hall Hotel and you’d like an experienced wedding photographer to photograph your day, or an experienced wedding videographer to create your very own Barnsdale Hall wedding video, please get in contact at tell me more about your wedding plans.
About the wedding
Robyn & Sam’s summer wedding was a lovely day. They actually got married the previous day at Stapleford Park where they held a civil ceremony in the stunning drawing room and the following day was the big event where they held a blessing at the beautiful church on Stapleford’s grounds. It’s quite common to do things this way and not the first time I’ve seen it at Stapleford Park. The civil ceremony was a very intimate and emotional ceremony with Robyn in particular struggling to get the words out. I think they were glad to hold this ceremony with the family the previous day as it was clear they were a private couple, and getting married was the most important aspect of the event for them. The following day the couple were both a lot more relaxed and that’s clear from their wedding photographs.
At this summer wedding I had my assistant photographer Heather with me. I have a number of professionals who can accompany me on a wedding and it’s a good idea if you have a particularly large wedding with lots of guests and if you want me to be in two places at once. It also means you will receive approximately 200 more photographs oaf your summer wedding. We shoot a lot of weddings at Stapleford Park. It’s actually the wedding venue we visit the most. If you are looking for a wedding photographer to cover your summer wedding please get in contact.
Aileen & Nick were married without a hitch and enjoying a great start to their marriage. We’ve already had a great email from them:
“Thanks for helping make our day incredible…still can’t believe the weather!! We both thought you had a very calming manner. The other guy that worked with you was so discrete I can’t even remember seeing him! We will certainly recommend you to friends.”
We can’t take any credit for the weather but the rest we will take.
Alice and Joe were married in Northamptonshire at Blisworth Church and held their wedding reception at The Hilton Hotel in Northampton. They are such a lovely couple and it was a real pleasure to attend their wedding. Here’s what they had to say once they’d received their wedding photographs:
Thank you so much for capturing our day, they’ll be a lovely memory for us to cherish! Everyone was so impressed with you discreet style and it put all the guests at ease so thank you very much. I’ll recommend you to all brides to be I meet!
Kind regards Alice and Joe

The happy couple
Alice & Jo’s wedding in Northamptonshire was one of those weddings where everything seemed to go right. I felt that these two were so in love that no matter what happened on the day they were going to enjoy every moment and that proved to be the case. It was a real pleasure to discuss their requirements with them before the wedding and throughout the preparation process. Jo is a musician and Alice is a singer, so the wedding was always going to be a musical event.
The wedding day
It was a stormy start to the wedding which threatened to dampen spirits but nobody seemed the slightest bit bothered by the weather apart form me. I was slightly concerned that I was going to have to photograph this handsome couple at the Hilton hotel in Northamptonshire. It wouldn’t have been a disaster but I wanted more for them. Whilst waiting for the wedding to come back for the couple the sun eventually came out and spotting the beautiful vicarage next to the church I suggested we take this opportunity while we can. It proved to be a very good decision and I was so happy with the results.
Here’s just a small selection of there wedding photographs from their wedding in Northamptonshire. I hope you enjoy them. And if you are planning a wedding in Northamptonshire or any where else for that matter and you want a natural, discreet and creative wedding photographer please get in contact.
