Country wedding Stanton Hall – Gardens is a little hidden gem of a wedding venue tucked away in Morpeth,Northeastt England. It's the perfect choice for Abbie & James Country wedding Stanton Hall. I can’t believe more people don’t know about this place, it has a garden nursery which I bought some very nice plants from.
At the back of the nursery is a large open space, perfect for you to pitch a tippee or a marque
Which is exactly what Abbie and James chose to do. At Stanton gardens there is also a very nice rustic wedding barn surrounded by trees and flowers, it is perfect for a rustic themed wedding in Northeast England.
Abbie is a very talented graphic designer and this shone through as she styled the wedding herself. I'm blown away by the stationary that she created. It's decorated with leaf drawings on brown paper, it looked beautiful. I embraced Abbie’s style and photographed her work, adding in some real leaves to the background. Furthermore, Abbie also had made all of the signs and styled the table decorations. There is no end to this ladies talent!
I had a lovely time hanging out with Abbie and her bridesmaids on the morning of the wedding, it's such a relaxed atmosphere and Abbie's cool as a cucumber. She clearly has very good taste.
Abbie showed me her Jenny Packham wedding dress, and I instantly fell in love.
The back's stunning, with a beaded pattern, and I loved the soft floaty material which I knew Abbie would have fun with, swirling around. I thought it couldn’t get any better but then she showed me her shoes. I knew them instantly, the same ones I wore on my wedding day. We clearly have good taste. The vintage styled shoes by Rachel Simpson worked perfectly with her dress.
Meanwhile, Greta and I could not get over how much of a beautiful day it is, the sun is shining and the guests started to arrive for the church service. Abbie chose to have my second Photographer there, called Greta. I am thrilled that she did. Within a church, photographers rarely allowed to move around. I'm ready to capture the front view of the church whilst Greta captured the view from the back. What a view, the church is stunning.
Without Greta, it wouldn’t be possible to capture the back view of the church
The guest were thrilled to see the Tippee as they arrived at Stanton Hall and Gardens. The barn's decorated with pretty bunting.
Garden games laid out on the lawn, which certainly kept the kids, and adults entertained. It's the perfect summer day. I was spoiled for choice as to where to take Abbie and James to have their photograph taken, the gardens, just so beautiful, with a wedding barn too.
The speeches went down very well at Stanton Hall- gardens, as Jame’s best man had everyone cracking up, then Abbie’s maid of honours turn and it's very emotional. I think I might have cried a bit. These two have a very strong bond and I am sure will be friends for life.
Sunset quickly approached at Stanton Hall- Gardens and I thought it would be a good idea to for a quick drive down the road where I had found a nice spot with an epic view. We arrived just in time for sunset, as predicted Abbie had fun swirling her dress around and simply enjoying the sunset with her new husband.
We arrived back at the Tippee to find the wedding party in full swing, the dancefloors packed and the band knew how to work the crowd. Abbie and James opted for a sparkler exit and we managed to capture the moment, adding some blue light in the background I think worked a treat at this Northeast wedding.
Such a beautiful rustic Country wedding, it really was perfect, I feel honoured that Abbie appreciated my work and picked me. I wish them all the best for the future. #Wedding Photography #Wedding Photographer #Morpeth, #Stantonhall-gardens
