Stanley House Wedding - Mat and Sam


Mat and Sam’s Wedding at Stanley House

One of Lancashire’s premier wedding venues, Stanley House, was the perfect setting for the wedding of the wonderful couple that is Mat and Sam.

This boutique country hotel is set in the stunning Ribble Valley. I love shooting weddings here and Mat and Sam’s was no let up.

Mat and Sam came to me shortly after they got engaged. I had shot Sam’s sisters wedding a few years ago so knew the family well and had no doubts that this wedding was going to be as equally epic.

We had a little rain early on but that didn’t stop this beautiful couple from smiling. The rain soon vanished and made way for some calmer weather as the day continued to get better throughout.

Andy and Jenny's Stanley House Wedding

This wedding was brilliant from start to finish! Andy and Jenny's Stanley House wedding was one absolutely packed with emotion, laughter and fun. They had certainly picked the perfect venue to stage the best day of their lives.  Stanley House is one of those wedding venues that I just love coming back to. It is situated in the Ribble Valley in the heart of Lancashire. 

Andy and Jenny are both filled with energy and fun, which meant their wedding was going to be one hell of a day! They had both decided to get themselves ready at the venue which, logistically made things nice and easy for me. It meant I could jump in and out of both the groom and bride preps to capture all of the getting ready, laughter and relationships between them, their family, bridesmaids and groomsmen. 

Summer wedding at stanley house

Keeping in theme with the day their ceremony was one of high emotion and laughter. Following on from their wedding ceremony their guests enjoyed the sunshine and all that the bar had to offer. It was certainly turning into a proper British summer wedding. The flow of the day continued nicely into the wedding breakfast. The responsibility of keeping Andy and Jenny's guests entertained fell to the legend of a wedding entertainer Howard Wing. For those that know of Howard you will know that he can certainly get a room bouncing and he did just that. 

The day continued to give me moment after moment to capture including Andy and Jenny throwing their wedding cake off a flight of stairs in order to turn a negative in to a positive and a sunset that I would have gladly paid serious money for! 

As if the night couldn't get any better Andy and Jenny had the awesome Dax on Sax owning the dancefloor and making sure it stayed rammed well into the night. 

It was a fantastic wedding filled with brilliant people and top class suppliers. My day was made even better working alongside the fantastic Adam Wing, who was on video duties.
