Staunton Harold Hall

Following their wedding at Kegworth Church, Hayley and James had a wonderful reception and party at Staunton Harold Hall. Hayley and James contacted me following a recommendation from Caroline at Staunton Harold Hall and it’s always a pleasure to return there. Hayley got ready in the bridal suite at the Hall together with her bridesmaids and I travelled from there to the Cap and Stocking in Kegworth to catch up with James and the groomsmen.

These are a few of the images from the day, followed by more details of their wedding day from the new Mr and Mrs Wilson.
