We are so lucky that we get to photograph weddings at such lovely venues and one of the most stunning regular venues for us is Stoneleigh Abbey in Warwickshire. Lauren and Tom chose us as their wedding photographer for their special day after coming to see us and seeing our work at our studio.
On the day I made my way to Lauren’s parents’ home where she was getting ready in a beautiful room that had been decorated especially for the purpose of pampering on the morning of her big day. Gemma Clarke was on make-up duty and as always did a lovely job and Mandy Allard and Raj Toor were busy with the girls’ hair. Lauren’s Paloma Blanca dress was stunning and once ready she was transported to the St Mary’s Church in Cubbington in a car from CG Wedding Cars.
Tom was getting ready at his parents’ home not far from the Church. His Dad had a very important part to play as he was conducting the service for the couple. All the guys looked amazing in suits from Peter Posh Suits. Tom also had a very nice mode of transport, an Aston Martin which had been provided by Aston Martin themselves.
Lauren’s flowers and the flowers in the Church were provided by Pam, a friend, and they really were beautiful. After the very personal service there was time for some family photos at the Church before heading off to Stoneleigh Abbey where John from Amadeus was waiting to greet them. They run the weddings at the venue and the service from them is always superb. The sun shone all day and there were a few red shoulders before the guests were called into the wedding breakfast after a bit of Maraoke with Vows the videographers. The Saloon had been decorated by Chic Covers UK and looked gorgeous. It was then down to the Riding School where our friend David Taylor, magician extraordinaire, was wowing the guests.
After cutting of the cake made by cousins Kelly and Gail it was dancing into the evening with The Kicks providing the music and JDB the dancefloor.
All in all a fabulous day. Thanks to John at Amadeus for looking after us on the day and we look forward to seeing you soon. Enjoy just a sample of the many photos from the day.
