Stanley House Wedding – David Stubbs Photography

Stanley House wedding

At the time of blogging this wedding, Hannah and Jason booked me to photograph their Stanley House wedding just two weeks ago. They originally had their Stanley House wedding booked for September but had very recently been given the devastating news that Hannah’s dad had cancer. As a complete surprise to her Dad, Hannah and Jason (with a huge amount of help from Hannah’s mum I believe) they brought their wedding forward to just over a week later. Although I wasn’t accepting any more bookings for the summer as I was so busy, it was a wedding I really wanted to cover for the family when I heard their story. Here are just a few photos from their Stanley House wedding – lots of fun, laughter, but also extremely emotional.

Weddings are special days, as it’s not just about two people coming together, it’s about families, their stories, and creating special memories for everyone involved. This wedding wasn’t just about Hannah and Jason, it was also about their son, Hannah’s dad and all their family and friends.

After getting ready at Mum’s house, the wedding service took place at St Maxentius near Bolton. Steven Parsons conducted the ceremony, who is one of the best reverends I have ever worked with. He gave a sermon on the importance of photography in our lives and how it captures people in a place at a certain time, capturing a moment that will stay with us forever. After hiding in the church door waiting for the rain to stop, it was then quite a drive over the hills in a VW Campervan by PoshPampaCampa to have their Stanley House wedding reception. Time was short so it wasn’t long before the meal started, and to all the guests surprise, the Best Singing Waiters entertained all the guests. It was then time for some very emotional speeches.

After a day filled with grey skies and persistent rain, we were presented with the most incredible sunset that appeared out of nowhere. One minute it was dark, the next the sky turned orange, blue and purple. Hannah, Jason and I literally ran through the Stanley House grounds to find the perfect spot for photographs. The photo above is one of my favourites, and there are many others below. I like to apply colour and punch into all my photographs, but when I edited the sunset shots I was faced with a unique problem. The sunset was so good, the colours almost looked fake as if I just Photoshopped them in. I can tell you now, the colours in these photos are 100% real!

Here are just a few photos from their incredible day, taken only 10 days ago. bride with curlers insilhouette at bride prep dad outside black and whitewoman having lipstick appliedboy playing with carbride putting dress onblack and white close up of womanputting earrings indad seeing daughterlittle lad in suitmen chatting at churchgroom laughing colourbridesmaids greeting bridegroom and friends waitingbride and father going up aislebride and dad black and whiteservice in progresslittle boy at ceremonychurch colour photosigning register under windowmarried couple leaving with songuests greeting outsidefriends chat after ceremonywoman with bridesmaidsconfetti being thrownPoshPampacampadad chatting with friendsstanley house photographyman in glasses clapping men singing black and whitegroom shouting into mic black and white close up of singerssinging waiters at mealwomen dancing colourguests dance at wedding breakfastbest singing waiterslittle boy clappingman and woman clapping women waving napkinsfather of bride doing speechbride and dadwoman crying at speechman and woman huggingbest man speechgroom and guests laughingmen hugging black and whitewife and husband runningweddings at stanley houseorange sun going downred sunset silhouettesunset by hotelstanley house wedding sunsetfirst dance colour photoguests dancing at weddingbride and groom and friends best singing waiterswedding party colourguests partying at eveningwomen dance and laughingman with tie on headblack and white close up of married man and woman
