Maria & Richards wedding day at The George Hotel of Stamford and St Peters Church Barrowden, Rutland.
The photography started with the bride and bridesmaids getting ready at The George Hotel, with the make-up artist and the dress maker all in attendance. It was the usual hectic and frantic getting ready time, which is what I love about weddings !
The wedding was held at St Peters Church in Barrowden, Rutland, this beautiful church is located in a valley and has stunning views across lush green fields and rivers. The wedding breakfast reception was held at The George Hotel of Stamford, a hotel I feel very at home with as I shoot many weddings every year at this venue located in Stamford. The bride and groom had a great time visiting the Stamford Meadow Fairground, a traditional event that’s been held in Stamford for hundreds of years. Richard and Maria were great sports and really embraced the opportunity for a bit of fun having candy floss and some fun on the big wheel !!
The evening concluded with an evening reception with a jazz quartet and a cerebrated cake cutting and first dance.
