I was very excited to be the Stoke Park wedding photographer for the wedding of Susan and John. Stoke Park is such a beautiful venue and golf course. Being a keen golfer, I know the reputation and prestige of Stoke Park. This was my last wedding of 2016, just before New year’s Eve. It was a foggy and slightly damp day but this did not deter from an absolutely lovely day for the bride and groom. I had met them before when they cam to visit me at my studio. Their son played with my 2 boys whilst we chatted about the photography for their wedding day. I was very much looking forward to this day as they are a lovely and relaxed couple, looking to have a beautiful and elegant wedding, focused on friends and family.
It was all quiet and relaxed when I arrived to take a few getting ready shots of Susan. There were some palpable nerves and excitement which I think it is great, it just shows how much one cares about the coming day. Everything is fairly close by at Stoke Park which makes it easy to capture the bride getting ready and guests arriving and mingling. The ceremony was beautiful and simple, with a few readings. It was lovely for them to have their son walk mum down the aisle, a beautiful moment! After the ceremony, we proceeded to do a few portraits before the evening meal. There were a few speeches planned. They were all great, personal and meaningful and kept everyone entertained. After the evening meal and speeches, there was time for dancing to a swing band. They were great and they kept everyone dancing for the evening. The bride and groom had asked me to stay after the first dance to capture some of the evening dancing. It was great fun to see everyone enjoying themselves so much!
Below are some of my favourite images of the day. I really hope that you enjoy looking through them and that it gives you a good flavour of their beautiful wedding day. I would love it if you can leave me a comment at the end of this post, I would love to hear your thoughts. If you are looking for a Stoke park wedding photographer (or any other venue for that matter) and stumbled upon this post, I would love to hear from you. Thanks for reading!
