Our first wedding of 2015 and what better way to start than Geoff & Mel's amazing wedding at Rookery Hall in Cheshire. Rookery Hall is a stunning Cheshire wedding venue set in its own gardens and with gorgeous interiors its a wedding photographers dream venue and we are so glad that Mel & Geoff chose Stanbury Photography as their Rookery Hall Wedding Photographers.
We first met Mel & Geoff at Mel's sisters wedding a few years ago and it was great to meet up with the families again for yet another 'great Tonks Wedding' and as always they didn't disappoint as the day was filled with laughter. Mel & Geoff are a gorgeous couple, so in love and a joy to photograph, they never stopped smiling all day and really made our job easy. Great speeches ended with surprise secret waiters entertaining the guests and getting them in the party mood for what turned out to ba a fantastic evening with the dance floor full all night. Here are a few of our favourite images, enjoy....
A huge thanks to Geoff,Mel and their family and friends for an amazing wedding. If you're planning a rookery Hall Wedding and are looking for an experienced Rookery Hall Hotel wedding photographer then get in touch, we would love to photograph here again soon. D&J xx
What a gorgeous couple Charlene & Oliver make and their photo session at Peckforton Castle was such a joy to shoot, can't wait for their upcoming wedding at this amazing venue... its going to be stunning. D&J xx
Best Artistic Documentary Wedding Photography 2014 by David & Jane Stanbury
So its that special time of the year when we all start to reflect on the year that was, and we are no different. 2014 was a blur, it really doesn’t seem that long since we did the 2013 review, even though we still have a few weddings left to shoot its only when we were deciding/arguing over this years wedding images that we finally managed to relive just what an amazing year 2014 was & is.
For us the highlight was our Wedding Photography Workshop in Italy, we just can't stop looking at our photo memories from that amazing few days, it was such an honour to be part of, and a dream came true when we finally managed to visit the stunning Cecconi Castle & the Graphistudio Factory. We also found a new passion this year… working with other photographers to help them improve their photography & business with seminars at the SWPP in London, the Photography Show at the NEC and recently again with Hasselblad & Broncolor at Shoot London and have made so many new friends at these amazing events.
But it would not be possible for us to pass on our experiences as wedding photographers if it wasn’t for you the wonderful Bride & Grooms who have trusted us with such a high honour of capturing the stories of love, family & friendship at your wedding, from the bottom of our hearts Thank You!!
Anyway enough chat here is our 2014 review, get yourself a brew there’s quite a few but we could have put 3 times as many in, thank you again and here is a very small selection of 2014……
WOW we still get goosebumps looking through these images, so many fond memories from an amazing year. On a personal note we would love to Thank Graphistudio, Hasselblad & Broncolor for their continued support throughout 2014 (too many friends to personally thank but you all know who you are) to our fellow photography friends who attended the workshops & seminars, to our amazing family, our son Cavan & Daughters Shanna & Kayla but our biggest thanks are to all our Bride & Grooms, Portrait & Fashion clients for making 2014 the best year yet…
how good, I will let Gary show you how good :)
So 2015 what will that hold?? Keep it quiet but it may involve taking amazing photos, travelling, workshops, Holland, Italy…. Las Vegas…..
So to you all have a very Happy Christmas & a wonderful 2015. D&J xx
