Andrew & Natasha’s Outdoor Wedding at Theobalds Estate

People always ask how do new couples find us and the not so secret secret is “word of mouth recommendations” and thats how Andrew & Natasha found us…. well with recommendations from 2 people who actually work in the photography industry to be precise so no pressure then!!!

We have photographed many weddings in Essex but this was our first visit to Theobalds Estate and what a stunning Essex Wedding Venue it is and has quite a bit of history to go with it.

Andrew & Natasha decided to go for an outdoor ceremony, now with the UK weather this is quite a risk but with everything going so perfect it was always going to be the prefect weather for their big day 🙂

As Documentary Wedding Photographers we love to capture the stories and memories that always go with weddings and this day had so many memories with Andrew & Natasha’s 2 children walking up the aisle to one of the craziest parties to end the day with the dance floor full all evening.

It was such a pleasure to spend a few days with Andrew, Natasha and their guests as their wedding was so special and such fun to be a part of. We are so glad that their friends in the photography industry recommended us as their Essex Wedding Photographers as WE now have so many great memories from an amazing day.

Here is a few of our favourite memories from a great day. Enjoy. D&Jxx

Theobald Estate Essex Wedding Photography

How stunning does this outdoor ceremony look, a brave choice given the typical UK weather but the day stayed dry and Theobalds Estate looked so beautiful.

Love the dramatic composition of this portrait of Natasha, the gorgeous light from the window and the staircase leading the eye to the Bride and the pillars framing the image make this just a stunning Bridal Portrait

2017 – What An Amazing Year

best destination wedding photographers award winning stanbury photography
After thousands of clicks of our cameras over 365 days it all comes down to an end of year 100 from 2 photographers.

Being wedding photographers and also being married with a family means that the days fly by and a whole year can disappear in a blink, in fact 24 years have flown by and we now enter our 25th year in business, 25 years of capturing and presenting memories.

We still feel extremely lucky to do what we do and LOVE what we do, we still get that tingle of excitement when we arrive at a wedding, when we see all the fun & hear the laughter and dare i say we still get a tear in our eyes at those special moments, yep we are extremely lucky.

As we enter a new year and with all the excitement to come we do love to look back at the memories that WE have from 2017 and this is exactly what this blog post is all about, not the technically perfect award winning signature images that we are known for but those moments between the moments that bring back amazing memories & stories that WE have from just the most epic 2017.

So this is our 100 images,Images that made us smile, images that put a little bit of dust in our eye 😉 , images of our travels and new friends we have made, images that just made 2017 one of the best ever.

A year that saw us travel to all parts of the UK & Europe not only as photographers but as photography judges and trainers and photography consultants for some of the biggest names in our industry. From venues 5 mins from where we live to Castles in Scotland and ceremonies on the side of a mountain in the French Alps our wedding photography journey never fails to deliver new experiences.

The high points have been all the new friends we have made along the way who will be friends forever and the new photographers that we have had the pleasure to meet just starting out at our workshops and I have to admit when i meet new photographers we always say the same thing….

Welcome to the best job in the world, WOW are you going to have fun!!!

Gosfield Hall Wedding Photography – Michael & Rebecca’s Wedding 

This was our first visit to to this stunning Essex Wedding Venue for Michael & Rebecca’s wedding at Gosfield Hall and we are so glad that they booked us as their Gosfield Hall Wedding Photographers. This was an amazing day with Micheal & Rebecca surrounded by their beautiful children, family & friends it was a really wonderful wedding to be part of. The day started with torrential rain but as we arrived at the hall out came the sun and I grabbed a few shots of Michael Jane photographed Rebecca in what can only be described as the most amazing Bridal suite ever!!! it was stunning. Rebecca threw tradition to the side & walked up the aisle with their 2 children for a very emotional ceremony followed by drinks & canopies in the courtyard filled with laughter. Gosfield Hall is perfect for our style wedding photography, beautiful Gardens and low light interiors all topped of by the Great Hall for the meal & speeches. Just when you thought this wedding couldn’t get any better the evening celebrations erupted by a surprise appearance from Beverley Knight who I have to say has the most amazing voice, boy can she sing!!! All in all a truly memorable day with wonderful people in a wonderful setting, lets say we were very happy photographers on the way home. Here is a small selection of our favourite images we hope you love them D&J xx Thanks to Michael,Rebecca & their family & friends for their hospitality & to Jan at Gosfield Hall for all her help.

Upwaltham Barns is in a gorgeous part of the world and is run by super friendly people, they really made us feel welcome.The day started with Charlotte, her mum & bridesmaids in the bridal suite and Owen, his best men & ushers arriving later. Charlotte looked amazing and smiled all day, and Owen looked the part as well.

Looking Back… 2013 Review

Stanbury Photography 2013 Review

Well as we come to the close of 2013 its at this time Jane & I look back at the year…. and what a year 2013 has been, so many new experiences, new venues & new friends. Its only as we were putting this review together that we realised just how GOOD 2013 had been (we thought it would have been quiet but not so)and this review is only a small selection of behind the scenes & weddings if we included our portrait & fashion shoots this post would be huge, so grab yourself a cup of tea, get comfy as here is a small insight into our year……
2013 was the year that our workshops to help improve other photographers took off and we started really on a high with Photo Training Overseas in Lanzarote with photographers joining us from the UK & Ireland

We also managed an amazing early morning shoot in the Lanzarote hills with a Royal Ballet trained Dancer Paris for her portfolio Over 2013 we were asked to provide more seminars & training with our good friends and worlds largest wedding album company Graphistudio of Italy, who asked us to do a series of seminars on their display stand at Europe’s largest photography trade show And workshops for the top Pro Camera company Hasselblad Cameras at Chateaux Impeny in the midlands & the first ever Shoot London (ShootLDN) aimed at the fashion & top end photography world Over The last twelve months we have also presented photography workshops & seminars in The South West, various locations in London & a great workshop in Northern Ireland we also met some amazing photographers and made many new friends around the UK & Ireland. 2013 was also a good year for awards, most notably Regional winner of the Wedding Album of the Year & bronze award for UK wedding Album of the Year, along with Gold awards for our portraiture, weddings & service in general. Also I was nominated in the prestigious Hasselblad Masters as the only UK photographer in the wedding section, this is a world wide competition and Masters status has been awarded to some of the most famous photographers in the world But all what we have achieved in 2013 and what we hope to achieve in 2014 would not be possible without YOU, our fabulous clients. We have had one of the best years ever, we have laughed with you, cried with you and witnessed your lives change forever and we are so proud that you chose us to capture the memories that you will hold forever…. we really do have the best job in the world. Here is a very small insight into our 2013 wedding journey, we could have posted 10 times as many images but the post would be huge so after much thought here is a few of our fave images of 2013…….

So that was a small look at 2013 a huge thank you to you our Bride & Grooms, our family portraits, our fashion and commercial clients, our actors, our babies…. our friends. We are a family run business and the business is our family and thats how we want to stay, our joy is seeing the joy & emotion in peoples faces as they see their images, their memories. This has been our 18th Year in business and we have seen many changes but one thing has always stayed the same… our passion for photography, it really is our life. So heres to 2014 we have so many exciting things to share with you as our journey continues with new couples who’s lives will change, new stories to tell, new smiles and new adventures. All that is left is to say have a Happy Christmas & A Prosperous New Year. All our love David,Jane,Kayla,Shanna & Cavan AKA ‘The Stanburys’ xxxxx
