Wonderful Wedding At Stoke Place

Stoke Place is another amazing wedding venue, which is based  in Buckinghamshire.  The 17th-century mansion offers a classical and luxurious feel to your wedding photography.  As a wedding photographer, I love the sweeping staircases, chandeliers, bay windows, and stunning parkland, that make this the perfect backdrop for your fairy-tale photographs.

I was lucky enough to be asked by Sophi to photograph her getting ready for her big day. Sophie decided to choose to stay the night before, as well as many of their guests, which gave everyone a relaxed and convenient start to the day, although there was plenty of black coffee being consumed by the groomsmen & bridal party when I arrived mid-morning for the bridal and grooms party preparation photography.

The bridal party room for getting ready had a lovely Georgian style bay window, that overlooked the gardens, and this made the room light and airy, with enough space for the hairdresser, makeup artist and all the ladies to get ready.

Sophie’s attention to detail was amazing and the wedding ceremony room, which is part of the hotel, was transformed beyond imagination by the use of emotive spotlighting, candles, flowers everywhere, and seating for the 60 guests. It was finished off with cream ribbons to match the wedding theme. The mood lighting in the ceremony room created a warm and cosy atmosphere.

There was a brief rain shower but that didn’t stop Sophie from looking amazing, as she took the short walk to the ceremony room with her two bridesmaids.

After the ceremony, there was about an hour for canapés and champagne in the main hall. Giant garden chess and live music for this period kept everyone entertained, whilst the room was made ready for the wedding breakfast. The bride and groom took this time to go with me, so I could take some wonderful couple shots, which I took in the gardens and by the lake.

Whilst my assistant photographed the guests who were mingling around the grounds, I worked through the couple’s formal photography list, taking family group shots, some stunning couple portraits and some amazing solo portraits.

Once all the photographs were done it was time for me to say goodbye and let the newlyweds party the night away in style.
