A fairytale wedding at Stoneleigh Abbey
Stoneleigh Abbey Wedding
Donna and Lee were kind enough to invite me to cover their stunning wedding at Stoneleigh Abbey. They were recommended to me via Mr & Mrs Wilkes and who's wedding I covered last year - another fab wedding day!
Upon arrival it was the usual hive of activity - I really do enjoy this time - being there to help and offer advice if needed as well a capturing a ton of raw emotion.
The ceremony was on the hottest day of the year and inside the beautiful Stoneleigh Abbey Orangery it was hot - imagine how Lee must have felt (he was very quiet waiting for Donna to arrive). It was a mad dash for me as for once the bride was on time and keen to get married - Lee needn't have worried!!
Donna looked stunning in her dress and was every inch the princess in this fairy tale. The ceremony was personal and intimate even though they were surrounded by grand architecture and scenery - it was perfect!
The day was really a special affair - it was perfect weather and a great celebration. I know this shows in the pictures they look so happy!
Stoneleigh Abbey offers the perfect backdrop for wedding images -following in the footsteps of Jane Austin - it really is the most romantic setting imaginable.
After the meal they moved onto the at Stoneleigh Abbey - Riding School which really kicked it up a gear! Entertainment was supplied by Donchez - who has to be seen - AMAZING!!
As the sun set an amazing firework display was put on for the guests - the perfect end to a perfect day. Exhausted it was a long drive home back to Manchester - happy but exhausted!!!!
As a special request they asked me to cover the wedding with video as well, which is something I a thinking of offering to more couples. I can offer short clips of key events throughout the day, which when added to the photos really add a new dimension to the slideshow. What do you think?
