Stubton Hall Wedding Photography is always a treat to do – last Saturday the wedding photography season kicked off for me at the beautiful Stubton Hall, on the Lincolnshire- Nottinghamshire border. Stubton Hall is classed as “One of the hundred best wedding venues in the world” (Brides magazine) and I was very much looking forward to taking Katie and Ed’s wedding photographs there.
At the pre wedding meeting Katie mentioned that she had seen one of my photos that is rapidly becoming a signature image for me I think. This is where the whole wedding party is arranged into a heart shape. This is a photo that caused me many sleepless nights when I was first asked to do it because the last thing I want as a wedding photographer is to spend ages arranging the guests for just one photo. The guests pretty rapidly become fed up if you do and that is not how I think a wedding photographer should be remembered. Fortunately I had a brainwave on how to organise everyone and in fact I can now set this shot up in about 3 minutes. Should anyone else request this photo though please note I need HEIGHT in order to get the best angle – if I don’t have height then it is an impossible image to shoot!
Talking of height – Katie is tiny next to the very tall Ed but her impressive purple shoes certainly helped to make up the difference between them!
I was very much looking forward to taking the heart photo though – Stubton Hall has the most beautiful 300 ft water feature which I knew would look lovely in the background. Thankfully the weather held long enough for us to get the shots done outside – as usual Easter Saturday was overcast and grey!
The other shot I wanted to get was in the Chocolate Bar – such a sumptious room full of leather squishy sofas and stunning oil paintings. I wanted a “different” informal shot of the boys so chose this room for them – they were very happy to pose for photos with their drinks in here!
Finally no wedding at Stubton Hall is complete without a photograph under THE tree. If you’ve been there – you will know where I mean. Nature can provide some stunning backdrops and this is one of them! I hope you enjoy looking through the photos – Katies sent me message to say she “cried all the way through them – they are amazing”. And at the end of the day that is what my job as your Lincolnshire wedding photographer is all about.
