Jason & Laura // Armathwaite Hall Wedding Photography

Armathwaite Hall Wedding Photography – Jason & Laura’s Wedding 

“Thanks to our amazing pictures we have the memories to last a life time” 

We just LOVE weddings in the Lake District, I don’t know if its the stunning venues or the beautiful landscape but as a Lake District Wedding Photographer we are truly blessed with amazing weddings and Jason & Laura’s big day at Armathwaite Hall was AMAZING!!! 

Now the full story is a little different as this wedding adventure started with Storm Desmond throwing floods, high winds and even snow storms at us taking out bridges and our hotel for the night before, but on the day of their wedding the sun shone and everybody had a huge smile on their face. 

We grabbed a few shots of Laura & her Bridesmaids in the morning as the excitement in the room grew whilst at the other side of Armathwaite Hall was Jason looking so smart in his uniform of The Duke Of Lancaster’s Regiment with his best men & Ushers contributing to the days laughter with their endless jokes & pranks. 

One of our favourite parts of the day is when the Brides Father see’s his daughter for the first time and a few tears where shed as Laura’s very proud Dad walked her up the aisle to a very nervous Jason. 

Bassenthwaite Lake and the stunning Lake District hills provided the most beautiful of photography backdrops for the gorgeous Mr & Mrs Lamonby-Parker who just love photography and wanted to make the most of their day, even when the rain started to pour down this didn’t stop them, infact one of our favourite images of the day was just the two of them under an umbrella as the rain poured down, after all Storm Desmond didn’t stop the weddings so a bit of rain certainly wasn’t going stop the party.

A huge thank you to Jason & Laura for choosing Stanbury Photography as their Armathwaite Hall Wedding Photographers, we had such an amazing time and loved every minute of their beautiful day. Enjoy travelling the world on your honeymoon. If you’re looking for an experienced Lake District Wedding Photographers then drop us an email, we would love to join you on your wedding adventure.

30 James Street Wedding – David & Suzie

David & Suzie’s 30 James Street Wedding 

David & Suzie are just a fabulous couple, their love for each other is infectious. We first met Suzie at her sisters wedding and it was such an honour to again be part of this amazing families celebrations.

This was our first visit to the stunning 30 James Street Hotel in the centre of Liverpool and we are so happy that they chose us as their Liverpool wedding photographers, we had such an amazing day. The sun was also playing its part as the guests sipped champagne in the rooftop bar with its amazing views of the famous 3 graces and the Liverpool waterfront, just a perfect place to enjoy a perfect day.

Suzie is one of three sisters and as Jane has 2 sisters it felt just like being at home, the laughter and closeness made for some fab photographs in the morning. David, arriving with his best man & ushers, was a little nervous, after all he had the speech and a dance to do. I don’t know why he was worried as his speech was perfect and their first dance….. WOW, brilliant.

This was such a great wedding to be part of with so much love & happiness what more could you ask for…. oh what?? a sunset??? Liverpool waterfront even delivered the most amazing sunset, as if this day wasn’t perfect enough.

Here’s a few of our fave images, hope you love them as much as we do. D&J xx A mahosive thank you to Suzie,David and their families & friends for the most amazing day and superb hospitality. We loved EVERY minute of your wedding, thanks for having us.

Florence – Destination Wedding Photographers

Mark & Tina’s Wedding In Florence, Italy 

Mark & Tina wanted a dream wedding and after many visits to Italy fell in love with the stunning Villa Cora and its views over the magical Italian city of Florence with the evening celebrations in the roof top restaurant of the Westin Hotel with its panoramic views over Florence.

Now we have witnessed many wedding ceremonies over the years but perhaps this was the most emotional as Mark surprised Tina by learning his vows in perfect Italian and after the ceremony Mark, Tina and the guests walked through the streets filled with tourists from all over the world admiring the statues & buildings but all that came to a halt as all eyes where on the gorgeous Mark & Tina who where a picture of elegance.

Florence is one of the most beautiful places in the world and a perfect location for a wedding and we where so glad that Mark & Tina chose us as their Destination Wedding Photographers, its a wedding that we won’t forget and we made so many new friends…. in short it was just perfect.

We will let Mark & Tina have the last words…. We always knew Florence was going to provide a jaw dropping location to our wedding, your photographs just made it look more spectacular! Our wedding photographs are so important and our lasting memory of our most special day, we couldn’t have been in better hands. We enjoyed your company and look forward to seeing you as friends in the future. Arrivederci!

Palazzo Vecchio in the heart of Florence was the sumptuous setting for their wedding ceremony.
It was then onto one of the most truly jaw dropping locations we have ever photographed, the Piazzale Michelangelo.
To raise the bar of this amazing wedding was going to be tough but they did it with their reception being held in the stunning Mirror Room at beautiful Villa Cora. Villa Cora is just the most perfect of wedding venues, the staff super helpful and the food!!! oh boy the food was amazing!!!! 
The evening was planned as a celebration of love and with the guests dressed in their finest Mark & Tina raised the bar yet AGAIN!!! with the roof top restaurant at the Westin Hotel and its panoramic nightie views over Florence, you could almost touch Il Duomo di Firenze the Cathederal that dominates the skyline, and with all Florence around us we danced and laughed the evening away.A huge than you to Mark, Tina and their family and friends for an amazing wedding and an amazing few days i the beautiful city of Florence. If your getting married abroad then get in touch with us about our Destination Wedding Photography services, we cover ALL worldwide locations. D&J xx
