Take a look at my selection of images taken at Sutton Bonnington Hall for Carly and Sam’s beautiful wedding day. Such a beautiful venue in Leicestershire – small but just perfect in every way. I enjoyed photographing this lovely wedding and capturing memories of the day for this lovely couple and their baby daughter. Sutton Bonnington Hall is a Grade II Queen Anne period country property close to the borders of Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. It’s stunning!
The bridal suite is really beautiful and I arrived to find Carly very calm and relaxed, enjoying a cuppa as she was having her hair and make up done. The sun was shining and the view from the window was right over the beautiful gardens of Sutton Bonnington Hall.
Carly is the 2nd bride I have photographed who had a kind of ‘Grace Kelly’ look about her. Her beautiful dress was from Dress Me Pretty in Hinckley, Leicestershire. A stunning dress, very Carly!
I love to capture photographs when dad first arrives to escort his daughter down the aisle… always such a lovely moment and often very emotional too. Just look at Carly’s dad here… Super proud.
Beautiful dusky pink bridesmaid dresses and stunning flowers.
After the wedding ceremony it was drinks and canapés on the lawn at the back of Sutton Bonnington Hall. We were very, very lucky as just as we were going back inside for the wedding breakfast, the heavens opened!
Look at the detail in Carly’s beautiful dress…
It’s always nice to put my zoom lens on my camera and capture the guests drinking, chatting and enjoying the wedding day. It’s also nice to do this from a distance.
Another Leicester fan… Sam had to have some elements of the recent success of his favourite football team.
Fun and laughter during the speeches. I love Carly’s expressions on these images.
I don’t ever photograph guests during the wedding breakfast. This is usually the time when I sit down, have a break, take a big deep breath and just check over my list of photographs and ensure that I have covered all the requested group photographs. Towards the end of the meal I often pop back into the room and take some relaxed, fun photographs of the guests. This is usually just at coffee stage and by this time the guests may have had a few glasses of bubbly and are happy to be photographed.
I love these photographs of the family. Their little girl had been asleep and so once she had woken we grabbed the opportunity to take some family pictures using natural window light. Perfect.
