Northamptonshire Wedding Photographer – Plum Park Hotel Weddings

Plum Park Hotel in Northamptonshire was the stunning setting for Rachel and Rob’s spring wedding.

Rachel and Rob made it very clear that they wanted a very relaxed approach when it came to their wedding photography, which was absolutely fine by me as I was able to mingle in with the guests looking for interesting moments to photograph….

Sutton Bonington Hall Wedding Photography in Leicestershire

It was back in sunny August when I shot Chrissy and Adam’s stunning English wedding at Sutton Bonington Hall in Leicestershire.

It was the first time I had shot a wedding at this venue, which I always find exciting as it forces me to think on my feet when taking a shot, rather than having pre thought out ideas of how and where I will take the picture.

Although Sutton Bonington Hall is somewhat smaller than its sister venue Prestwold Hall…

Dunchurch Park Hotel Wedding Photography – Elizabeth and Jeremy

Elizabeth and Jeremy’s delightful wedding took place at the stunning Dunchurch Park Hotel in Warwickshire.

One thing that has struck me over the years of being a documentary wedding photographer is how surprisingly calm the bride is on the morning of her wedding day, and how unexpectedly nervous the groom can be.

One would usually assume that given the circumstances, it would be the other way around.
Usually when I walk into the room where the bride is getting ready, there is a hive of activity…

Chris Snowden - Beautiful photos. Amazing use of natural light

Leicestershire Wedding Photography – Gail and Andrew

So back in October, I was the documentary wedding photographer for Gail and Andrew at Prestwold Hall in Leicestershire. A very popular choice of venue for my couples in 2012. In fact, considering I only take on around 25 weddings per year, just under half of these were at Prestwold.

The day started off with Gail getting ready at a beautiful country farm house close to Bradgate Park in Leicester. The preparations were going very smoothly indeed and I decided to make my way to church to capture the bride’s arrival.

Leicestershire Wedding Photographer – Prestwold Hall

During 2012, I was a wedding photographer in Leicestershire at Prestwold Hall many times, and while writing this latest blog post it occurred to me that I can actually remember everything about each and every couple’s day. Emotional moments between the bride and groom, how nervous the bride was before the ceremony, the sad and funny parts of the speeches to certain guests that stood out in my mind. Some of these weddings I shot almost a year ago, so why do I remember so much about them?

Well there are times as documentary wedding photographers we turn up to the job, photograph the days events and think to ourselves at the end of it, “yep i’ve…

William and Jennifer - Fantastic photos Craigh. I particularly like the one of the outside of the house taken immediately after the group shots. Guests wondering around and the two of us making our way down the steps. Great.

Prestwold Hall Wedding Photography

This weeks wedding is actually one I shot back in the summer at the stunning Prestwold Hall in Loughborough. I’ve mentioned in the past that this venue has been a very popular choice for my couples this year. It’s not surprising though as this really is such a lovely place to have your wedding day.

The staff are very attentive, the building and grounds are simply stunning but my favorite room has to be the dining room. I really don’t think I could ever tire of shooting weddings here…
