Laura and Sebastian were married on Easter Sunday at Stanton Manor Hotel near Chippenham.
This was the first wedding that I have photographed at Stanton Manor but, since their recent refurbishment, I already have a number of other weddings booked at this venue. It's always great to see how weddings unfold at every new venue and I now know, for future reference, that in order to take a group photograph of all the guests on the lawn, you have to actually stand in the bath in the bridal suite!
It was a beautiful sunny day which meant that Laura and Sebastian were able to take advantage of the weather and get married outside underneath the gazebo. It had been transformed with lots of gorgeous flowers by Portia Potts Floristry and it looked beautiful!
Laura must be one of the smiliest brides that I have ever photographed - she was beaming from ear to ear throughout the entire day - but it set the tone for the whole wedding with smiles, laughs and happy tears aplenty!
With the weather being so lovely, the garden received a lot of use with the boules, swing-ball, giant jenga and giant connect 4 all constantly in action and, despite the fact that very sunny weddings can cause a bit of a headache for photographers (strong sunlight, harsh shadows etc...) it was actually lovely to be able to capture lots of vibrant blue skies (for a change)!
Below are just a few of my favourite photos from the day. The full set of images can be found here (the password can be obtained from Laura or Sebastian).
