Sri Lanka Destination Wedding Photography
Azra & Dominics Wedding Ceremony in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka its just stunning, the country, the people, the food, its easy to see why Azra & Dominic fell so in love with Sri Lanka…. and so did we x

Destination wedding photography is always so exciting, going to new places, meeting and making new friends and more importantly making & capturing new memories.

Our journey first took us to Colombo where we had a great few days with Azra & Dominic before the rest of their family & friends flew out to Sri Lanka for the wedding at Trincomalee in the north east of Sri Lanka.

Their wedding was a two part wedding to take place at Trinco Blu by Cinnamon Hotels, the first being a traditional Sri Lankan Pourwa ceremony in the morning and then a western style wedding on the beach in the afternoon, well it did get to well over 30 degrees at midday so made total sense.

‘David & Jane are award winning photographers and we knew that for our special day we couldn’t risk not having the best in the game to capture the moments’.

There is always something extra special about weddings abroad, well apart from that all the guests where in the pool just before the ceremony, there is an excitement thats hard to describe but you can just feel that its going to be a special day and boy Azra & Dominics family & friends where here to enjoy their day.

Azra and her bridesmaids always seemed to be laughing whilst they got ready as Jane grabbed documentary style photos with David photographing Dominic in his beachfront suite and the pre ceremony events.

A very proud father walked Azra to meet Dominic and on the white sandy beach with the glistening Bay of Bengal as the backdrop the wedding ceremony took place and yes it was a truly beautiful wedding.

With cocktails on the beach all served by the ever smiling Trinco Blu waiters and the sound of laughter the early evening sun softened and we grabbed a few photos on the beach (yes this is a job) of the gorgeous new Mr & Mrs

So much was planned into this day, the styling by Magical Moments was exceptional we had tradition drummers, dancers, firebreathers, cake cutting on the beach, sparklers, open air dancing to a great band…. the list goes on

‘David and Jane were fantastic and not only did they capture the perfect shots but they also helped make us feel at ease and their ability to keep everyone laughing and smiling was very much appreciated by all’

Its always surreal when you receive the call to photograph any wedding abroad but Sri Lanka really was a dream destination for us and we are so glad that we where the destination wedding photographers for Azra & Dominics wedding, our everlasting memory of our time in Sri Lanka will not only be the stunning locations we visited around this beautiful island but all the new Sri Lankan & UK friends that we made and hope to see again one day xx

heres a few of our favourite images from Azra & Dominics wedding, enjoy. D&Jxx

Hannah & Christopher’s wedding at Ufton Court

It was a recommendation from Hannah’s brother that led to us meeting Christopher & Hannah who are so laid back but knew exactly how they wanted their Ufton Court Reading Wedding Photography.

Ufton Court in the beautiful county of Berkshire dates back to the 1400’s and you can feel all the history here.

It was our first visit to Ufton Court and what a beautiful spring day to photography Hannah & Christopher’s wedding.

The wedding ceremony took place at St Peters Church on the banks of the River Thames in Reading.

Their Ufton Court wedding had it all, drinks on the lawn, hand carved tomahawk steaks, a gorgeous sunset and crazy ceilidh dancing with sparklers to end this amazing day.

Jane started our wedding photography at the couples home to photograph Hannah and the girls getting readyUfton Court reading wedding photographers

Wedding Photography at Auchen Castle – Andrew & Claire

“David & Jane… you guys where AMAZING!!!”

Auchen Castle Wedding Photography

Ben & Amy’s Wedding at Auchen Castle, Scotland

Think of words to describe a fairytale Wedding…. Castle, Scotland, gorgeous couple, friends & family these words would definitely spring to mind and we would add Auchen Castle & Andrew & Claire 😉

Auchen Castle, set in beautiful Scotland is perfect background for any amazing wedding, it pretty much has it all and add to that all the excitement of your family & friends and your wedding could very easily turn into the most amazing weekend away and its easy to see why Andrew & Claire totally fell in love with it.

Auchen Castle is perfect for our style of wedding photography, with its dramatic architecture and stunning views we are so glad they chose Stanbury Photography as their Auchen Castle Wedding Photographers.

Claire & Andrew, along with their 2 gorgeous children and their family & guests, arrived the day before their wedding and celebrated with an evening dinner, a great way for everybody to get to know each other before the big day.

Now we cant go any further in this blog post without mentioning the ceremony…. or more particularly, the owl at the ceremony…. which decided to miss the bestman, Andrew & Claire even me but sadly not the mirror. Dont worry the Owl was fine 🙂

I suppose one of the worries when you book a winter wedding, especially in scotland, is the weather but yet again we had the most perfect weather for their day and we managed to get some amazing photos of the stunning new Mr & Mrs in the Gardens at Auchen Castle.

One of the best parts of being wedding photographers for as long as we have is we get to bump into our past Bride & Grooms and re live their weddings when chatting and this wedding was no different, infact it was one of our previous couples who introduced Andrew & Claire to each other.

Pipers, Haggis, Scottish dancing all topped of what was an amazing few days for us in beautiful Scotland, one of our favourite destinations for Weddings and we are looking forward to our next visit here, but for now here is a few of our fave images for you to enjoy from one of the most epic weddings in a stunning location. We hope you like them. D&Jxx

Wedding Photography at West Tower – Ben & Amy

“After looking at a few photographers we felt that Stanbury Photography where a cut above the rest… and we where right”

West Tower Wedding Photography

Ben & Amy’s Wedding at West Tower

West Tower, with its amazing views over the countryside on the outskirts of Liverpool, is one of those ‘in demand’ wedding venues and it was its exclusive use that made Ben & Amy fall in love with it.

We have photographed many West Tower weddings over the years, its like a second home to us and we love it and also such a special place and great venue to photograph weddings.

So how does a boy from Essex meet a girl from Lancashire…. in Ibiza of course and after many journeys up & down the M6 Amy decided that the south was for her but it had to be up north for the wedding 😉

The weather was perfect all day and as the laughter & champagne flowed we grabbed a few photos with the Ben, Amy and their wedding party before the speeches all just in time for the most beautiful Golden Hour to make us very happy wedding photographers 🙂

No sooner had the sun set than the evening party started with Ben & Amy’s first dance followed by an emotional dance with Amy & her Dad then the dance floor filled and never emptied. A Perfect end to a perfect day.

Here is a few of our favourite images from Ben & Amy’s West Tower Wedding. Enjoy. D&Jxx

Essex Wedding Photography – Theobalds Estate

“David & Jane were such fun to be around and so helpful. Our wedding photos are amazing and we couldn’t have asked for more”

Essex Wedding Photography

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

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.
