Denise & Ian’s wedding at Stoodleigh Court
Stoodleigh Court Wedding Photos
A nice small wedding of 45 close friends and family today at Stoodleigh Court, and a short one too! Ian & Dee both live in Berkshire but Ian’s parents live locally, so the venue was a natural choice for them. I arrived just before the ceremony at 4pm which is a unusually late start for me, the groom and his best men were all ready, we had a few minutes to spare so slipped away to get some photos.
The Great Hall looked beautiful in the late afternoon sun, although all eye’s were on Denise as she made her entrance in a stunning Maggie Sottero gown. The couple were very relaxed during the ceremony and seemed to be having lots of fun. I understand that Dee had to remove one of the vows that Ian had written for her, which was to climb one mountain every year! Mind you, I think Ian got off lighter as he managed to get the vow removed where he was expected to take Salsa lessons – result!
Soon enough the formal proceedings were completed and we all went out into the gardens for some family photo’s which had to be completed quickly due to the late start time and schedule – who said wedding photographers make you stand around for hours doing group photos! After the family photographs we went off on our own to get some nice, relaxed photographs in the grounds of Stoodleigh Court.
The couple treated their gusts to a lovely wedding breakfast all washed down with a glass or two of wine. I photographed the speeches before leaving allowing the guests to enjoy the rest of they’re evening dancing to the resident disco. Ian & Dee are spending their honeymoon in Lisbon & Sintra (canoeing if Ian has anything to do with it!).
Here are a few from the day…
