The nice thing about being a wedding photographer (and there are many…) is the great people you meet and becoming an important part of their special day, and this was exactly the case with Laura and Steve. They chose the Stapleford Park Country House Hotel which was just an amazing wedding venue, a country estate set in over 500 acres of stunning landscaped grounds, just outside the village of Melton, Leicestershire.

Laura stayed at Stapleford the night before and with the spacious and well lit suites I got some great shots of the bride getting ready with the bridesmaids, capturing the moments with my reportage photography style, the fact that there were two little ones made my job easier as they were a joy to photograph (couldn’t go wrong really)..
Steve then arrived in the red ferrari that Laura had arranged for him as a surprise, with a broad grin ( who wouldn”t have), unfortunately there wasn’t time for me to have a quick go as there were photographs to be taken… maybe another time then…
The civil wedding ceremony was held at Stapleford and I managed to get some great shots of the couple as they exchanged there vows , it’s always a good idea to check and ask ‘nicely’ if the photographer can photograph the exchanging of the vows as they can make for fantastic spontaneous images and complete the story of your wedding album.
After the ceremony the majority of the day was spent outside in the beautiful grounds as the couple had a glorious summer day , they had a string quartet outside and drinks and I had the freedom to click away and let Laura and Steve enjoy the day, which really came out in the final images.
My wedding photography has taken me to some beautiful wedding venues in Cheshire, Derbyshire , Manchester and abroad to Italy and I have to say Stapleford Park Country House Hotel is one of my favourite wedding venues, so a big thank you to Laura and Steve for choosing me as their wedding photographer.
