A Stanford Hall wedding is always something I look forward to. It was great to meet Chris and Chrissie and to hear that they were planning an amazing yet very relaxed day with their family and friends for their Stanford Hall wedding. I was just to capture their day as it happened, the way I like to work, just capturing moments as they happen.
Stanford Hall is a beautiful and often overlooked wedding venue, sat just outside Lutterworth, Leicestershire. What I love about Stanford Hall (as well as the amazing building, rooms and setting) is that there are a whole range of stunning and very individual bedrooms for guests to stay in, and once the speeches are over, the evening celebrations continue in the stable block giving a great relaxed party atmosphere.
Chrissie got ready at Stanford Hall. The ceremony was at Our Lady Of Victories Catholic Church, before returning to Stanford Hall for drinks, the wedding breakfast and then the evening celebrations when they were joined by more guests.
A few images from Chris and Chrissie’s Stanford Hall wedding , followed by much more detail about their day in their own words.
