“We did a lot of research into Wedding Photographers and after we met David & Jane we knew we had made the right choice”
Ben & Hannah’s wedding was always going to be something special and on a grand scale, after all Ben proposed to Hannah during Afternoon Tea at the Ritz and as big fans of Downton Abbey a small venue was never going to fit the theme….. and wedding venues don’t come much bigger and grander than Peckforton Castle in Cheshire.
Hannah & Ben are from very close families and they played a huge part of their wedding with Hannah’s Mum & Sister helping Hannah into her amazing Justin Alexander Wedding dress and her veil that was embroided with their initials & wedding date, Ben also looking the part in his Navy Blue Hugo Boss Suit.
The Wedding Ceremony took place at St Cuthberts by the Forest and after a tunnel of bubbles it was back to Peckforton Castle and some amazing photographs in the woods all topped of with the most amazing ‘golden hour’
Ben & Hannah where so amazing to photograph, they where up for anything…. Walk into the thick wood, no problem. We just love them!!!!
One of the funniest parts of the day was the meal…. We had 2 waiters who where getting more & more drunk and generally not being waiters only for them not to be waiters but The Rat Pack Boys singing waiters that really got everybody in the party mood.
The Great Hall at Peckforton Castle really comes to life in the evening and with the Funtime Frankies getting the party started and Andy Murphy keeping it going what a party it turned into… we even had confetti cannons and an exploding magician.
Ben & Hannah planned their wedding so well & the day was just fabulous with their favourite part being saying their vows infront of family & friends and even though their wedding was on such a grand scale nothing else mattered just that special moment between the two of them.
A huge thank you to Ben & Hannah for choosing Stanbury Photography as their Peckforton Castle Wedding Photographers and here is a small selection of our favourite images from a memorable Cheshire Wedding, enjoy D&J xx
Ben & Hannah’s top tip….
“Be organised! When taking all your decorations etc to your venue, make sure you label everything! Peckforton Castle were fantastic but I didn’t want to leave anything to chance so I separately boxed all our favours, candles, decorations etc and labelled them explicitly with where I wanted them to go, that way I could relax on the morning of the wedding without worrying”
