Wedding at Stanbrook Abbey

This wedding at Stanbrook Abbey was one big, beautiful affair. Guests filled the abbey for John and Laura’s wedding, and the two had a wedding party full of loved ones. Laura was surrounded by seven bridesmaids as she got ready to walk down the aisle, and John had his best man and three ushers. Two adorable flower girls and one pageboy marked the beginning of the ceremony as they processed in.

Laura looked stunning in her sleeveless white gown, and based on the reactions of her father and her bridesmaids, everyone else thought she looked remarkable too.

The ceremony was full of love, tears, and laughter. John wiped tears away from his eyes as Laura walked down the aisle toward him. The couple beamed as they exchanged vows, and guests smiled along as everyone sang “All You Need is Love,” by The Beatles. A string quartet accompanied guests as they sang during the ceremony.

After the ceremony guests headed to the reception in St. Anne’s Hall. There was fun to be had by all as all kind of games were played between the courses. Family and friends gave toasts to the new Mr. and Mrs. leaving them laughing and crying all at the same time. Laura and John surprised everyone by opting against a first dance but instead singing a first song.

The venue was the perfect location for capturing photos of John and Laura. The pair looked incredible as they posed for photos in empty hallways with beautiful architecture, and outside on the swing and amongst the greenery. The happy couple found me through the Stanbrook Abbey recommended supplier list. We went through the images of a previous wedding I had photographed there and they loved the photos, so I was happy to be able to give them their own.

"Martin photographed our wedding at Stanbrook Abbey. We had spent a long time looking at different photographers' works online and then met Martin at a wedding fair. We really wanted a photographer who wouldn't do 'stuffy', overly formal photos and we loved the examples he showed us, especially the cool things he does with lighting, and booked him.
We had a Skype call with him prior to the wedding which was great and he really took the time to find out what we wanted. He definitely listened and we found him excellent on the day!
We've been to a few weddings where the photographer has barked orders at everyone but Martin was incredibly natural and friendly and up for a laugh with the guests. In fact many guests commented after the wedding saying how great the photographer was! His energy was incredible and he just ran around all over the place, somehow managing to be everywhere at once, capturing some fab shots from some great vantage points whilst never 'imposing' on anyone.
We thoroughly enjoyed his company on the day - you realise you spend a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day so it's important you have someone who knows what they're doing and who you can have fun with! We'd happily recommend Martin to anyone and needless to say our photos and wedding album were superb. Thank you Martin!

STANBROOK ABBEY WEDDING-01

It's always nice to reconnect with old friends, especially on Stanbrook Abbey wedding. I was lucky enough to go back and meet some previous clients of mine, as I was asked to photograph their sister's wedding. Natalie and Mark were married in Powick, in St Peter's Church. It was a sentimental day for many reasons, not least of which was the fact that Natalie's grandparents were married in the same church many years ago. The wedding party then moved on to Stanbrook Abbey, a venue not too far from the church, for a memorable afternoon and evening.

The bride prepared for the day at her mother's house, and I met the groom and his men at a nearby pub in order to get some early shots of the day. Right from the off, there was a real sense of family about this wedding and I'm thrilled to have been a part of it.

Natalie chose her dress from Hagley Bridal Studio, and she looked stunning. The flowers were from Helen Steward, and the wedding cars from Concorde Cars. Natalie and Mark's wedding cake was gorgeous, both in look and taste, created by Angela Veronica of The Little Pink Cake Shop. All the finer details came together to make the day truly special. Even more special still, and perhaps one of the more unique things about the day, was that during the group shots outdoors there were Red Arrows flying overheard. It was a marvel.

Stanbrook Abbey is sensational. With it's old school build and new, modern additions, it really encompasses a lot of different vibes that different husbands and wives to be are looking for. With something for everyone, Stanbrook boasts a manor house, a lake and a total of fifty seven function rooms! I'm pleased to say that the venue is hosting images from Natalie and Mark's special day on their website, and I sincerely hope to be able to photograph more weddings there in future.

Finally, I would just like to wish Natalie and Mark a beautiful life together. If their wedding day is anything to by, then they should be just fine.
