Stanhill Court Hotel Wedding with Marie & John

Yesterday I spent the day photographing a special Stanhill Court Hotel Wedding with Marie & John. https://www.stanhillcourthotel.co.uk/ This was going to be a fantastic wedding, I knew from when the couple asked me. Over the years I’ve had the privilege to capture the families portraits, not just Marie & John’s, but Jo, Maxine’s and Toni’s too! The weather looked promising. I arrived at Stanhill Court which 5 years ago was revamped and is a fab place to get married at. With an all in one venue it was a party from the outset. Bridal preprations took place in one of the fourposter bedrooms. The girls were excited upon my arrival. Marie the bride was a calm figure in a room full of wedding decoration. Hair and make up was being applied and with six bridesmaids, 3 flower girls and mum’s too the room was a buzz with excitement and anticipation for the day ahead. The dresses were hung waiting and shoes shone in the sunlight through the windows. The wedding dress was fitted by https://myfairygodmother.uk/ Marie is a beautiful lady and she’s a great laugh too. We’ve known each other since school. She’s got a big family and 3 older […]

Weller Wedding at The Crowne Plaza Hotel Felbridge

A long time coming, the Weller Wedding at The Crowne Plaza Hotel Felbridge, here we go… Crowne Plaza Felbridge Neil & Leanne came to me back in 2018 regarding their original wedding date for 2020. The pandemic hit and everything went out the window so to speak. Poor things put their wedding off twice and thrid time lucky it went without a hitch! ‘Nelly’ as many know Neil, is a long time family friend of mine. As children we grew up across the road from each other. We’d play in the street and help each other when we needed it. Like a family member. Neil is a fantastic lad, a gentleman with his heart on his sleeve. He’d do anything for you, and Leanne struck gold with him. They now have 2 fantastic children and you can sense the family love straight away. As soon as Neil was brave enough to ask Leanne to marry him I always hoped he’d ask me to photograph his wedding. Sure enough, he did and I must say what an honour it was.   The day started with Leanne’s preperation photography. On arrival to the Felbridge Hotel, now known as the Crowne Plaza, it […]
