Mita & Ronan’s Stapleford Park Wedding was in many ways the type of wedding I just love to be involved with. I love my job and I still love photographing and videoing any wedding even after 10 years and over 400 weddings of experience, but what I loved in particular about Mita and Ronan’s Stapleford Park wedding was the opportunity to provide both wedding photography and wedding videography services. I just love working in sync with my colleagues and owning every aspect of the visual memoirs the couple will cherish for a lifetime. apart from them being beautiful and handsome , young, and very in love. Along with the amazing venue and a beautiful sunny day in December.
The wedding venue
I’ve spoken a lot about Stubton Hall in the past as I was the first wedding photographer to work here when Ken first opened for business many years ago. Since then it has become a regular venue for me and one which I always look forward to returning to. It is as beautiful inside as are the surrounding grounds so it makes a particularly good venue for winter weddings when we may not be able to make use of the outside space. The long lake at the back is the main feature of the grounds and is always used at some point during the day to capture you both together. I did have a snoop around the back of the wedding breakfast room where there is a lovely hidden walled garden. Unfortunately it’s a bit run down but one day I’m sure they will make better use of the lovely area.
The ‘Formal’ Wedding Photos
The schedule for Sarah & Bens’ wedding was tight and there was an unusually high number of formal groups to capture and at different locations too. I always help my couples organise the formal groups before the wedding as it’s the one aspect of the day that really needs organising well and that I will take over and deal with for you in a calm and professional way. I always advice large groups rather than lots of combinations, and I usually try and get you to narrow your groups to about 10 maximum. If at all possible I also strongly suggest you have all your formal groups taken at the one location. Whilst I’m here to advise you of all this I am aware that it is your day and I will accommodate your requests in every way. Sarah & Bens’ Stubton Hall Wedding Photos are a good example of what I can do for you but I wished we had more time to spend with just the two of them. This is usually where we lose out if the formal groups take too long.
If ever there was a chocolate box village setting this is it. Having grown up in the neighbouring village in Cambridgeshire I didn’t quite appreciate the beauty of this special place until I was a lot older. It has just the one main street lined with thatched houses, a great local pub and restaurant, and that is about it. The Falcon pub and restaurant is a regular wedding venue for couples to hold their wedding reception after their church wedding and their is a really nice B&B in the village where you can stay too – Castle Farm Guest House.
If you are a regular to my blog you’ll know I often declare wedding venues as my favourite but never before have I had a favourite church. Well this is it and for many reasons. It’s a beautiful setting and a handsome church too. And inside there is so much light and room it’s a pleasure to work at. There is a beautiful walk from the road to the entrance which is framed by trees which always makes for stunning sots of the bride arriving at the church or the happy couple leaving. And there is even enough space for the formal groups. As a wedding videographer or photographer you couldn’t ask for anything more.
