Wedding photography in Marsden for Matt and Caroline at Crow Hill

Wedding Photography in Marsden

This is the second wedding I’ve covered at Crow Hill in Marsden and both times, I’ve been blessed with good weather. It’s a relaxed setup and well organised with the wedding preparations and the ceremony taking place in the main house and the reception in an attached marquee. The garden’s are mature and extensive and have been cleverly designed to facilitate wedding photography. Matt and Caroline said that they’d looked at several wedding venues but Crow Hill stood out because it doesn’t have to be shared with other parties and once your in the grounds, it feels very exclusive.

We picked Stuart after viewing some of his previous wedding photos and the testimonials on the website. His relaxed style documenting the day was just what we wanted for our photos. We met before the wedding when we were immediately put at ease and were impressed at how he wanted to make sure we had the photos we wanted.

“On the day Stuart was professional but unobtrusive. Our photos are beautiful and a lasting memory of the day as it happened together with the few staged shots at Crow Hill that we specified. We have no hesitation in recommending Stuart.”

Oldham Wedding photography – Graham and Jacky at Chadderton Town Hall

Wedding photography for Graham and Jacky at Chadderton Town Hall registry office, Chadderton, Oldham

Chadderton Town Hall is a good venue for a civil wedding. It lends itself well to photography with lots of grandiose internal features. The staircase, for example, has fantastic symmetry and is great for portraits and group shots and the ceremonial room is laced with historic detail and decor.

Wedding photographs – Rochdale Town Hall

7/06/13

Family, travellers and friends journeyed from every part of the British Isles to be at this “Big Gypsy Wedding’ in Rochdale. For me, it was a wedding photographer’s dream; huge dresses, sixteen bridesmaids and Cinderella’s white carriage pulled by two majestic shire horses. Debbie’s plan to keep to a colour scheme worked brilliantly with all guests dressing resplendently in pink. To top it all, the weather was perfect.

“Stuart’s photographs say it all, they are stunning!  The quality stands out and he totally captured our wedding day. We loved the way he mingled with our guest’s. He’s confident but unobtrusive and just fits in. Nothing was too much trouble, he came to discuss the wedding photography beforehand and helped us to plan our big day. We felt comfortable in his capable hands. We loved his wedding photographs and would not hesitate to recommend him.”

Wedding photography at the White Hart

Wedding photography at the White HartWedding photography at the White Hart, Lydgate, Saddleworth, Oldham for Wasili and Vivien.

Working at the White Hart is always a pleasure. It’s a great location on a sunny day with superb views over Oldham and Manchester and the gardens and grounds are ideal for wedding photography.

Wasili and Vivien wanted a relaxed, low key wedding with friends and family and that’s exactly what they got. The White Hart staff were brilliant and the weather was perfect. All weddings present challenges for photographers but, apart from compensating for bright sunlight, my day was a pleasure.

Stuart captured our wedding day superbly with outstanding professional photographs. His easy going style and good humour belied his professional approach. He will do what you say but he will also capture those magical unrehearsed shots that give life and colour to the day. Stuart is a thoroughly nice chap, easy to work with and a very good photographer.

Thanks Wasili & Vivien Schelowok

Broadfield Park Wedding Photographs: Rochdale

Broadfield Park Wedding PhotographsBroadfield Park wedding photographs for Bob and Jayne at the Broadfield Park Hotel, Rochdale.

4/5/13

This is a good venue for a wedding, located close to Broadfield Park near Rochdale Town Hall. There isn’t much room for photography in the gardens of the hotel but the surrounding park is ideal.

In the park there are a number of spots which lend themselves well to wedding photography. You need some luck with the weather but the bandstand, bridge, woods and green spaces are all ideal. We had bright sunshine on the day of Bob and Jayne’s wedding so having access to shade from the trees was great. Having a variety of settings is great for me, as a wedding photographer, as it provides flexibility and allows me the freedom to explore my creative vision.

Wedding photography: Lee and Kate

Wedding photographs for Lee and Kate

Ferrari Country Club, Longridge, Preston, Lancashire

Lee and I would like to extend our gratitude to Stuart for photographing our wedding day. He was a pleasure to spend time with.

We met prior to the big day at the Ferrari Country Club in Longridge to discuss our requirements and were immediately put at ease. He clearly understood what we wanted and helped us by sharing ideas from his years of experience. You can see by looking at his photographs that they are the result of great insight and attention to detail.

Being photographed by Stuart added to the immense joy we, our friends and family felt throughout the day. We will treasure our photographs forever and would recommend Stuart to anyone. He is a true professional who is, whilst working, relaxed and comfortable to be with. Our friends and family commented on how lovely Stuart was. He fitted in so well, many of them thought he was one of our guests.

Stuart is a true credit to his profession and I happily and wholeheartedly recommend him.

Kate and Lee, Bolton.

Wedding photography: Richard and Tanechka

Wedding photography for Richard and Tanechka

The Priest’s House, Bardon, Yorkshire

Richard and Tanechka said, “Stuart’s wedding photography strikes straight at the imagination. Being an artist, I can see a picture but Stuart has the ability to see a moment……and capture it.

We wanted a wedding photographer and got much more than that with Stuart. His ability and timing are remarkable which is why, without exception, he is able to capture every key moment. His work has a powerful emotional content, it is like he somehow personally knows the people he photographs.

When I look at Stuart’s work I make a connection and can almost feel the moment the picture was taken.

Wedding photography for Robert and Helen at the Peacock Hotel, Bakewell

The Peacock Hotel, Bakewell, Derbyshire, England

“Stuart was already a good friend when he offered to take the photographs at our wedding. It was a very small and quiet wedding and Stuart managed to beautifully capture the emotion and enjoyment felt by those attending, despite having less scope than he might be used to with bigger events. He chose his moments with tact and insight, and without making himself the centre of proceedings, producing images which captured the intimacy and fun of the day. Our families enjoyed his company and felt completely at ease.

Looking at his photographs of the day, in the photo book produced from his images, never fails to bring a smile to all those who share it with us. There are moments that would have disappeared forever from our memories were it not for the sensitivity, creativity and sense of story-telling which Stuart brought to the task.

We would have always invited Stuart to our wedding but we could never have known how much love and fun he would leave in our hearts with his images of the day.” Robert and Helen
