Azra & Dominic’s Poruwa Wedding in Sri Lanka Pt 1

Traditional Poruwa Wedding Photography
Azra & Dominics Poruwa Wedding Ceremony in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is described as ‘One of the most exotic & beautiful islands in the world’ and from our experience we totally agree.

With its stunning landscape, unique culture and genuinely warm and hospitable people its easy to see why Azra & Dominic fell so in love with Sri Lanka, it is just beautiful.

So the question for Azra and Dominic was a traditional Poruwa Ceremony or a western style ceremony, easy answer….. both.

A Poruwa ceremony is a traditional Sinhalese wedding ceremony that takes place on a “Poruwa”, a beautifully decorated, traditional wooden platform. The ceremony involves a series of rituals performed by the bride and groom, and their families.

The ceremony ends with the brother breaking a coconut (the cleaner the break the longer the marriage) so a long marriage for these guy xx

The temperature was 30 degrees plus, not unusual for Sri Lanka but this was 10am and with the Bay of Bengal in the background it seemed only right that we grabbed a few images on the gorgeous white sands at Trinco Blu by Cinnamon Hotels at Trincomalee, Sri Lanka.

As the title of this blog states this was wedding part 1 as the midday saw temperatures soar well over 30 degrees so the western style ceremony was to take place at 4pm in the afternoon so now it was time to chill, relax with family & friends and just enjoy this paradise location.

‘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’.

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 in Sri Lanka, heres a few of our favourite images fro their stunning Poruwa wedding, enjoy.

Peckforton Castle Wedding Photography – Claire & Ashi

Claire & Ashi’s wedding at Peckforton Castle

When it comes to fairytale weddings then you have to have a Castle and set in the beautiful Cheshire countryside is the stunning Peckforton castle and just perfect backdrop for our style of creative wedding photography.

Claire and Ashi are just a bundle of fun and a joy to photograph, from their wedding pre shoot we just knew these guys would be amazing on their wedding day and boy where they just 🙂

One of the best parts of the day is when we photograph the bride getting ready and the excitement that seems to rise during the morning, it just sets the tone for the whole day and lets just say excitement was on level 11

As a Peckforton Castle Wedding Photographer the Great Hall at Peckforton Castle is one of our favourite wedding photography locations, the lighting is gorgeous and when the hall is dressed with flowers and candles it just looks stunning.

After drinks in the grounds it was time for the speeches and WOW they where brilliant. Full of laughter and tears just as we like them.

The largest EVER letter lights was the backdrop for a great first dance before everybody hit the dancefloor to an epic party ending with a sparkler exit for the gorgeous Claire & Ashi.

Here are few of our favourite Peckforton Castle Weddings Photos from Claire & Ashi’s day.

we do 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

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

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

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!!!

Kilhey Court Wedding Photography – Katy & Philip

kilhey court wigan wedding photographers stanbury photography

Kilhey Court Wedding Photography

Katy & Philips crazy wedding at Kilhey Court

Kilhey court surrounded by its own gardens has over the years been one of our second homes, well it is only 10 mins from where we live 🙂

It was such a joy to photography Katy & Philips wedding as we first met Katy and her family as we photographed her sisters wedding at the equally stunning Ashfield House a few years ago.

One of the joys of documenting weddings with our photography is that you get to meet and make new friends along the way and it was great to meet up again with Katys family.

Now their wedding theme was ‘a black tie dinner with the party to end all parties in the evening’ and boy did this wedding live up to the theme.

Great speeches and dancing on tables was just the pre lude to a pre rehearsed first dance and then BOOM!!!! the dancefloor filled and never emptied

As a storytelling wedding photographer when you have such crazy family & friends who just love to let themselves go and have a good time it certainly makes your job easier… I say Job, Katy & Philips wedding was just a joy to photograph, they are such fun loving people with great family and dare i say…. crazy friends. What a day!!!!

Heres a few of our favourite wedding photographs from their Kilhey Court Wedding, hope you like them as much as we do. D&J xx
