Sutton Bonnington Hall Wedding Photography

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.

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!

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.

Lucy & Mark’s Potters Marston Wedding

Leicestershire Wedding Photography | Lucy & Mark’s Potters Marston Wedding

It’s not often that I share weddings on the blog, simply because I’m so busy shooting them and don’t get time to write about them.  Lucy & Mark’s wedding was so beautiful and unique that I just had to share!

Potters Marston is a tiny village in Leicestershire, with an even tinier chapel at just 38 feet long and I now hold the unique honour of being the wedding photographer of the first ever wedding at one of the smallest churches in the county! The chapel actually dates back to the 15th century but it seems that Lucy & Mark are the first couple to actually get married there.

The chapel is in the grounds of Lucy’s parents’ home and the reception was held in a gorgeous marquee provided by Covertec Structures. Flowers By Stephanie did an amazing job (as I’m sure you’ll see from the photos) of decorating everywhere with flowers and creating the beautiful bouquets for Lucy and her bridesmaids,  her floral decor was just perfect for a wedding in such a rural location.

As you can see the weather was just perfect, the wedding was beautiful and the day was relaxed and full of fun and love. These are my absolute favourite sorts of weddings, perfectly suited to my style of wedding photography which is informal and relaxed, capturing the story of the day as it unfolds. I also love to create beautiful portraits of the bride and groom on their big day and what could be better than having a field of golden wheat and perfect light, ideal for Lucy and Mark to take a little quiet time together after the wedding breakfast.

I hope you enjoy the photos and if you are planning your own Leicestershire wedding and would like to have a chat about wedding photography why not give me a call on 01455 233224.

I often feel very fortunate that I’m able to welcome anyone who books a portrait photography session with me to a studio that’s in a location as beautiful as the Atkins Building in Hinckley, Leicestershire. The Atkins Building is a former hosiery factory that has been converted to a wonderful space that is now home to lots of creative businesses and even has a coffee shop.

My own space in the building is a lovely bright and airy photography studio. It’s very spacious so I’m able to offer studio portrait sessions right from babies through to larger groups such as extended families, corporate teams and groups of friends.

As you can see from this gorgeous group of cousins, the space is perfect for larger groups.

My studio portraits are very relaxed and informal and I’m endlessly patient. Which comes in handy, especially when photographing small children and pets!

Newborn Baby Photography in Leicestershire | Home Sessions Available

IMG 0175  Newborn Baby Photography in Leicestershire | Home Sessions AvailableRecently I was asked why I offer home visits across Leicestershire for newborn photography sessions when I have my beautiful studio in Hinckley.

Many new mums are happy to escape the house for a couple of hours and relax in my studio whilst I photograph their new baby, but for others the thought of having to pack up everything needed to leave the house with a new baby as well as making themselves presentable can be overwhelming.

newborn 0010  Newborn Baby Photography in Leicestershire | Home Sessions Available

newbornphotography 0006  Newborn Baby Photography in Leicestershire | Home Sessions Available

If you are a new mum and don’t feel ready to go out for a few hours I really don’t want you to miss the opportunity to have some beautiful images of your precious new baby whilst they are still tiny so I’ll happily pack up my equipment and come to you.

If you happen to be having one of those days where you just don’t seem to be able to get anything done there’s really no need to worry. I’ll get on with doing my thing and you can sit and relax, have a cup of tea and watch me work. You can even stay in your pyjamas if you like, I’ve had two babies myself and remember those days well so I won’t be the slightest bit surprised!

newbornbabyphotography 0014  Newborn Baby Photography in Leicestershire | Home Sessions Available

pink 0008  Newborn Baby Photography in Leicestershire | Home Sessions Available

The ideal time to photograph your gorgeous newborn baby is when they are between 5 and 14 days old. The sessions can be booked whilst you are pregnant but don’t worry if your baby is already here, give me a call on 01455 233224 and I’ll do my best to fit your session into my diary.

There’s a lovely brochure available full of information regarding my newborn baby photo sessions, including what to expect, how to prepare and a full price list. If you would like a copy please give me a call on the number above. If you prefer you can head over to the Contact Page and fill out the form or send an email and I’ll get right back to you.

I’m a firm believer in ‘word of mouth’ referrals and I have had many photography reviews along the way.  I have photographed some amazing wedding days over the years and worked with such lovely couples.  And of course I have also photographed many families, large and small on location and here at my studio at the Atkins Building here in Hinckley.  Here are some photography reviews for Lesley Bee Photography,  taken from my Facebook Page, alongside an image from their wedding day.  You can view my wedding gallery of images here    Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss your wedding photography requirements in more detail.  I am happy to meet with you for an informal chat about your special day.

Lesley photographed our Wedding at The Impressive Titanic Hotel in Liverpool in February and what an amazing job she did! We seen Lesley before the wedding and spent a lot of her time talking through what we wanted and also what she felt would suit. From the start of the actual Wedding day, she made us both feel comfortable and at ease in her own unique fashion with a great sense of humour, which was much appreciated and very much needed! She makes you feel very relaxed and also makes the rest of the wedding party feel the same, especially parents, sisters, brothers, best men and bridesmaids!! She did a great job at controlling the wedding rabble! and everyone commented on what a fab job she did and what a great personality she is, as well as totally professional with it. We can’t wait to see our photos, but really appreciate the beautiful sneaky previews we’ve already seen…Thanks so much Lesley, you’re a Star! xx  Toni Salters-Warner

Toni and Aaron’s fabulous wedding day at the Titanic Hotel, Liverpool. 

 

I can honestly say Lesley is amazing at what she does. We met Lesley a couple of times before our wedding day including a meeting at our venue. Lesley becomes part of the wedding party and everyone loves her. We picked up our album this week and the pictures are stunning, Lesley captured the whole day beautifully creating a perfect story which is told through our album. I would 100% recommend Lesley to photograph any wedding as she is a natural. Our pictures will be with us forever and we wouldn’t change a thing.  Laura Hayward

From the moment lesley arrived at my house for my daughters wedding we all felt instantly at ease. She is a true professional and works without being demanding. Pictures are stunning, I would highly recommend her, so much so she is doing my other daughters wedding.  Laura Hayward’s Mum. (Julie Kilby.  I have photographed both of her daughter’s weddings)

Laura and Ben’s beautiful wedding day at Warwick House.

Lesley was our photographer for our Wedding in September & she was absolutely brilliant. Her friendly & bubbly personality fitted right in & made us feel so relaxed. Half the time we didn’t even notice she was there & she has captured all the special moments which the pictures prove as they are truly stunning & tell the story of the whole day (which went by in a flash!). We’ve received a lot of comments from our guests on how lovely Lesley was & also what a great job she did at arranging everyone!! Thank you so much Lesley – you really are amazing at what you do & we are so thrilled with our beautiful pictures.  Love Aaron & Melissa Gillespie xXx

Melissa and Aaron’s super lovely day at Ashton Lodge Country House.

 

Lesley was absolutely incredible on our wedding day, the photos are amazing and perfectly capture each moment from start to finish! I don’t know how we’re going to chose our favourites as they’re all so brilliant. Not only is Lesley an amazing photographer she is also great fun to be around, she made everyone feel at ease throughout the day and got on with everyone, particularly the scousers! Thanks so much Lesley, I looked like such a creep today grinning from ear to ear at my desk looking through all the photos! X Katherine Cullen

Super, fun day at Sketchley Grange.

 

I just want to say the biggest thank you ever to Lesley for doing such an amazing job on our big day we are awaiting he photos but i know they will be fab! Lesley is like having a friend at your wedding rather than a photographer that you know Is there! She made us feel so at ease having fun with us and our guests and letting us enjoy our day rather than posing all the time. She is incredible! Can’t wait to catch up with you love Mr and Mrs Gibbins xxx

Katy and Sam’s gorgeous day at Shearsby Bath.

Lesley is such a wonderful person and photographer. It was just like having another friend at the wedding because she is so much fun to be around. She really does give a very personal edge to her services and we cannot wait to use her in the future for family shoots. Fab, beautiful pics! The Chamberlains (Rachal and Tony) xx

Rachael and Tony’s wonderful wedding day at Shearsby Bath.

Don’t even look anywhere else, because this woman is amazing. Not only with the images she captures but with her personality, it really shines through and allows you to feel at ease on your big day. I will always keep in touch with Lesley as she helped keep me going, more than a photographer! Couldn’t of asked for better. And as for her assistant, well you’ll see. If you want all your guests laughing…. book!

All of our family and friends also agree when I say you added some spirit to keep our day going.  Thank you so much Love Sophie & Andrew Steans x
