Michelle and Mark’s big day was my first time providing Stanton House Hotel wedding photography at this beautiful wedding venue near Swindon.  As a Cotwsolds wedding photographer I love to visit new venues, and Stanton House has a classic feel with a contemporary twist!

I arrived early to have a look around, and I must say that the grounds are wonderful – I’ll definitely be visiting again with my children for a wander around the lake.

I popped for a chat with Michelle during her final preparations before capturing a few fun photographs with Mark and his dad as well as a few of the guests.  The staircase at Stanton House Hotel is gorgeous, and I made sure to capture the bridal party as they walked down the stairs to the ceremony.  Michelle’s dad was delighted to greet her, and it was then time for the ceremony.

The room looked lovely, with such unique heart decorations and gorgeous flowers by Beautiful Blooms in Swindon. The ceremony itself was light-hearted and fun, and it was soon time for a kiss and confetti!  The children had a great time throwing confetti and blowing bubbles.

We then had a walk around the grounds for a few relaxed and informal wedding portraits of the couple as well as their dog, who was delighted to see them.  We even walked down to the lake, which has a lovely view back to the hotel.

The afternoon entertainment was Laser Clay shooting by Laserclayz – adults and children both enjoyed having a go, and it did get quite competitive!

Soon it was time for the wedding breakfast, and the guests took their seats in the room which still looked really lovely with the unique decorations.

Wishing you a lifetime of happiness, your wedding day was wonderful filled with so many happy moments!
